REMINDERS | HOUSEHOLD MANAGEMENT
Managing a household can be challenging for seniors and even more so for those clients who are restricted to bed and have household responsibilities that must continue to be met. They may have to manage appointments with their doctor, pay monthly bills, refill prescriptions, and remember when to take their medications. Our caregivers can provide a wide variety of household management chores that the client is no longer capable of doing. These may be simple tasks such as answering the phone or retrieving and managing the mail. The caregiver can also perform tasks that are personally important to the client such as mailing out letters and cards or gifts to their family members. Our caregivers will make sure everything is taken care of and that tasks are performed on schedule.
All Heart Home Care has a long history of providing home care assistance to San Diego residents who are elderly and/or ill. Many suffer from symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Those at all stages of these diseases can benefit from a variety of memory exercises designed to engage their memory. These exercises can also help reduce signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Our caregivers are trained to perform a number of activities that will help our clients retain their memory. They can slow the progression of memory-robbing conditions and keep them engaged and happy longer.

Our caregivers will not only drive them to medical appointments, but also to shop, have lunch with a friend, or to go out sightseeing for a day out of the house! They provide professional and safe transportation services that help our clients get where they need to go in a timely manner.
Our caregivers are highly qualified and they have been given extensive background checks and we insure them with a supplemental auto/non-owned auto insurance for client’s peace of mind and to ensure the safety of our clients.

The needs of our senior clients often extend beyond medical care. Those individuals who live alone long for the companionship that will help to alleviate feelings of loneliness and, sometimes, depression. Our caregivers provide companionship to clients in all types of situations. They may just need to have someone with them in their home or they may require a chaperone during their ventures outdoors, some of the companion activities that our caregivers will provide to keep clients engaged and entertained include:
• Reading them the newspaper or their favorite book
• Accompanying them to social events including luncheons, parties, and reunions
• Playing cards, games, putting together puzzles and model cars or planes

Studies have proven that companionship and social connections can improve mood and cardiovascular health. Caregivers can provide companionship services that will help clients heal faster following surgery, an illness, or trauma.
Our Companionship service will help keep your loved one engaged physically and mentally. Companion caregivers will help them relive important memories and provide encouragement to exchange their life experiences.
At All Heart Home Care, we provide San Diego caregivers that are a good match for the client. The right companion will make life more enjoyable for you or your loved one by encouraging activities that are fun. The client may prefer sharing a quiet day at home or taking in a movie at the local theater. You or your loved one will enjoy the benefits of daily stimulation and encouragement from the companionship of a carefully matched caregiver.
24 HOUR CARE | LIVE-IN CARE
Senior clients who require 24 hour home care assistance or live-in home care typically need a deeper level of care than those who can do some things for themselves. Our San Diego caregivers can be available 24/7 to help with tasks such as getting in and out of the bed, going to the toilet, or providing reminders for taking medications. For clients who require round-the-clock care, our live-in support offer many advantages including:
– Around the clock provides protection from falls or wondering.
– Having fewer caregivers provide continuity and familiar care.
– No overtime charges in comparison to services provided by the hour.
– Discounted rates compared to regular hourly care service rates.
RESPITE HOME CARE
It isn’t unusual for a relative or spouse to take on the role as caregiver for a loved one. However, when this is not possible and care services are required on a short term basis; it can place a great burden on the person caring for their loved one. It can also make it difficult to get the care that is needed. When you need a caregiver for a short period of time, our respite home care services can fulfill this need.
Families often rely on us for respite home care services in San Diego when they have other life responsibilities. Our caregivers will provide your loved one with the care they require. Please call our office and inquire about the minimum hours required for respite home care services.
