The companion caregivers work each day with our elderly clients to provide necessary support in many wonderful ways. The many tasks that are so easily taken for granted can become a chore for our elders from everything we do from rising each day, reminders and assistance with personal hygiene, proper and timely reminders for medications , meal planning & preparation , getting properly dressed for the day, etc. . From there the companion will engage them in conversation perhaps play a board game or crossword puzzle to stimulate them mentally and prepare them for the days social activities or appointments ,perhaps go for a walk or promote some other light physical activity to engage our loved one for a great and productive day. Once Mom and dad are on track each day our homemaker companion will take on the housekeeping, run errands, laundry, pet-care , change linens etc. to keep a tidy, healthy and happy environment for our cherished senior. We do all of this and much more always with loving care and as our name suggests ” A Gentle touch ” as truly your satisfaction is our highest priority.Contact Us

They typically help people who are physically disabled, chronically Ill, cognitively impaired, and older adults who need help to live in their own homes or at an assisted living type facility, or institution. The HHA will help the patient from rising and getting out of bed each day, bathing, dressing grooming, taking meds etc., they can also help disabled people get to and from work or rehabilitation, or hospice and other day programs .as prescribed or required.

It’s the goal of the company’s Live-In Home Care Program to provide experienced caregivers and a range of supervised, professional services that meet the patient’s home care needs under one predetermined fee.
A Gentle Touch’s Live In Home Care Program takes into account the health and home support needs of the patient while providing consistent, personal attention on a one on one basis. The individual and family gain the following benefits with around the clock services from A Gentle Touch: (i) live at home with all personal care ensured; (ii) maximum privacy and confidentiality; (iii) expertise of a trusted live-in caregiver; (iv) one on one service; (v) supervision by a Registered Nurse; (vi) minimal disruption to normal life; (vii) respite, relief and reassurance for the whole family; (viii) comfort and companionship; and (ix) affordable alternative to hourly rates.
Before services commence, one of A Gentle Touch’s Registered Nurses, in consultation with the patient’s attending physician and family members, will visit the patient’s home or facility, from which the patient is being discharged, to develop a comprehensive plan of care. In conjunction with family members, who may be active participants in the patient’s care, our primary goal is to help the patient attain his or her highest level of well-being. Contact Us
Home Health Aides
Home Health Aides help people who are disabled, chronically ill, cognitively impaired, and older adults, who may need assistance, to live in their own homes or in residential facilities (i.e., Assisted Living Facilities) instead of in health facilities or institutions. They also assist people in hospices and day programs and help individuals with disabilities go to work and remain engaged in their communities. Aides work with elderly, physically, and mentally disabled clients who need more care than family or friends can provide. Additionally, aides help patients who are discharged from the hospital and have relatively short-term needs.
Aides provide light housekeeping and homemaking tasks such as laundry, change bed linens, shop for food, and plan and prepare meals. Aides also may help clients get out of bed, bathe, dress, groom, and may also accompany clients to doctors’ appointments or on other errands.
Home health aides may provide some basic health related services, such as checking patients’ pulse rate, temperature, and respiration rate. They also may help with simple prescribed exercises, assist only self-directing patients with medications administration, change simple dressings, provide skin care, or assist with braces and artificial limbs.
