Caring for your loved ones

HANDS-OFF NON-PERSONAL CARE

Not every client requires hands-on assistance. For this reason, Caring Matters offers help to seniors and physically challenged adults in the following areas:

  • Household Chores: Light housekeeping including dusting, sweeping, vacuuming, laundry, making beds, changing linens, watering house plants, washing dishes, and taking out the trash
  • Meal Preparation: Meal planning, advance preparation, grocery shopping, cooking, and kitchen cleaning
  • Errands: Grocery shopping, pharmacy pickups/drop offs, post office runs, and other necessary errands
  • Medication Reminders: We remind our clients when it is time to take their medications
  • Accompany Services: We accompany clients to medical appointments, weddings, church, visits with friends, and other special events

HANDS-ON PERSONAL CARE

Caring Matters offers non-medical hands-on assistance to clients in their personal care routines and daily activities, helping them to maintain a sense of pride in their appearance. Whether you need us for just a few hours, morning and night, or 24 hours a day, Caring Matters has a solution that's right for your senior. Our hands-on services include:

  • Bathing
  • Skin Care
  • Hair Washing
  • Incontinence Care
  • Dressing

In addition, we offer specialized morning and evening care; a range of hands-off non-personal care services, including help with household chores; and general adult day care-type support and companionship. 

Senior Care

In addition to specific personal care, Caring Matters offers a range of services for seniors who need companionship and social interaction to help them stay active and ensure their well-being. Our warm, attentive caregivers spend quality one-on-one time with our senior clients and engage them in the activities that interest them. We encourage their participation in new challenges in an effort to stimulate their cognitive skills as well as their social skills. Time is best spent when it’s being shared and Caring Matters caregivers enjoy the time they share with their clients.

For the times you can't personally be there with your loved one, our caregivers:

  • Provide conversation and discuss local and current events
  • Assist with crafts and hobbies, such as scrapbooking, puzzles, etc.
  • Read with or read to clients
  • Watch TV and movies with clients
  • Play cards and board games
  • Help clients maintain relationships by assisting with phone calls, writing letters, and sending cards
  • Help clients find new areas of interest, such as new games or puzzles

MORNING & EVENING CARE

Routines are important to seniors to help them stay active and alert. But the simple morning routine of getting out of bed, bathing, getting dressed, and eating breakfast can be a challenge for seniors and physically challenged adults. Likewise, getting ready for bed at the end of the day can be equally as challenging. Caring Matters offers assistance with morning and evening hands-on personal care. Care can be arranged to accommodate your loved one's schedules and preferences.

Our trained staff can assist with:

  • Bathing & Washing

SPECIAL NEEDS CARE

Children and adults with special needs, physical disabilities and challenges often need hands-on care around the clock. Caring Matters can provide professional assistance to the primary caregiver, who is often forced to juggle this enormous responsibility with the demands of their own daily activities. Our caregivers can help reduce the stress this causes by assisting with morning and evening care, daily activities, bathing and dressing, meal preparation, household chores, running errands and other services.
