At Beacon Home Care, we believe nothing is more important than the health, happiness, privacy, comfort, and safety of our clients. Our special brand of caregiving can make a big difference to you and your loved one’s quality of life.
From dementia, cancer, or diabetes assistance, our compassionate caregivers are here to help. We support the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, assistance with mobility, and meal preparation. We have a full range of homecare services to make life easier and more joyful, including pet care.
How do I know it’s time to hire a caregiver?
- Do you need someone to help with personal care tasks like bathing, dressing and using the bathroom?
- Do you need someone to help with household chores like cooking, cleaning, and laundry?
- Do you need help getting in and out of a wheelchair or a bed?
- Do you care for a loved one and in need of extra support?
Being a primary caregiver can be emotionally and physically draining. Our Adult Respite services give you peace of mind and a break. Whether for an hour or overnight, our caregivers are here to help.
Personal Hygiene enhances emotional and physical well-being. Our caregivers are trained in safe transferring, toileting, bathing, basic grooming, dressing, and incontinence.
Our caregivers are trained to manage the special challenges that come with dementia. We help stimulate, motivate, encourage, and maintain safety. Homecare extends the time a person with memory loss can live in their own home.
Our Companion Care is much more than running errands and preparing meals—it is about social interaction and emotional support. Our caregivers bring a higher quality of life to those they serve. They are a shoulder—a friend.
Our light housekeeping services ensure a tranquil and clean environment. Your “to do” list becomes ours, and includes doing laundry, changing bed linens, cleaning the kitchen, vacuuming, scooping litter boxes, tidying up and more.
As adults age and appetites lessen, going to the grocery store and cooking a healthy meal can be a challenge. Good nutrition is important for the elderly and chronically ill. Your caregiver can cook hot meals and prepare snacks, based on your personal dietary needs and preferences.
Medication management can be a challenge for all of us, but especially for seniors and those of us taking many medications. Our caregivers make sure you or your loved one take the right doses of the right medications at the right times.
Pets require proper care and feeding, too. Our caregivers can help with walks, medication, clean up, veterinary appointments and groomer visits. You and your beloved best friends will get the very best of care.
Our caregivers will take you to doctor or dental appointments, your favorite restaurant, hair salon, shopping, church services, or while you visit a friend. They will also accompany you, if that is your preference.
We respond quickly to requests for care after discharge, which often occur with short notice. We can provide an assessment either in the facility prior to discharge or in the home. Our caregivers will aid in the rehabilitation processes by providing general comfort and ensuring safety. We will also encourage and assist with Occupational and Physical Therapy exercises.
Long Term Care
We support our Long Term Care Clients and their desire to remain at home. Clients living with one or more chronic conditions, such as ALS, COPD, and CHF need special assistance as their condition progresses. Our caregivers assist with all activities of daily living: bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, mobility and transfers. Safety is always our primary concern.
Whether you need one hour of service or 24/7 care, our “A La Carte” services give you help where and when you need it. From assisting your mother with getting ready in the morning to taking your dad to the doctor, we are there to help. Since we do not have hourly minimums, we can offer flexible schedules to suit your individual needs.
