The skilled-care services our licensed nurses can provide may include, but are not limited to:

  • Medical assessment visits
  • Medication organization and administration
  • Insulin injections
  • IV therapies
  • Wound care and dressing changes
  • Catheter care
  • Ostomy/colostomy care
  • Tube feeding assistance
  • Ventilator care

We understand that life can be very challenging for seniors that are suffering from various illnesses. Certain conditions can require a lot of maintenance, monitoring, and work and may include constant care including supervision for those middle of the night wakings. Proper care requires attention to the fine details including tasks such as making sure that the right medicines are taken in the right doses at the right time and services as simple as scheduling and getting transportation to regular doctor appointments.

For seniors that have diabetes, ensuring that insulin injections are given at the right time is critical. This is something that many seniors may have a hard time remembering. When it comes to maintaining the appropriate levels of insulin, taking a dose too late, or forgetting to take one altogether can cause some serious problems. When we provide elder care services we make sure to appropriately monitor the blood sugar of our clients and that all of the doctor’s orders are followed to ensure blood sugar and insulin levels are healthy.

Catheter Care

For certain services such as catheter care, our professionals are always ready and able to assist our clients to avoid any discomfort and protect their privacy.  These uncomfortable moments of a senior citizen’s life may seem routine, but rest assured that we will do our very best to keep our clients comfortable and well cared for at all times.  Our caregivers have the correct tools, proper knowledge, and credentials in order to perform these types of care tasks. Oftentimes our clients are relieved when we show them that there is an easier, quicker, and less uncomfortable way to take care of routine tasks that they find highly uncomfortable or painful before receiving our care services.

Colostomy or Ostomy Bag Care

We have found through our experience of providing elder care services, that often our support makes difficult or uncomfortable tasks more tolerable.  Even the timely reordering of supplies can be managed and handled by our care team. When it comes to providing elder care services that involve colostomy or ostomy bags a qualified helping hand can be available should a difficulty arise, including leakages and challenges while away from home. Preferred Care at home is also one of the leading personal care agencies because we always put our clients first and we help support clients and families which makes their own lives easier.

These tasks can be difficult and uncomfortable for clients, but with the proper care team in place, clients have renewed energy and confidence in engaging in life. We believe the proper care in place actually enables more independence and restores dignity.

Ventilator or Feeding Tube Assistance
