Bathing and Dressing
Hygiene is one of the greatest pitfalls for seniors. Falling in the shower or bath in your eighties can change everything. We understand the embarrassment of needing help at a very private time. However, the right caregiver, someone you get to know well, can assist in keeping you safe while being sensitive to your need for privacy. It is for this reason that Complete Care Coordination offers the very best in senior care Montreal services.
Lack of mobility, stiff joints and weakness are just some of the problems when getting dressed. Pulling on socks, doing up tiny buttons, zippers etc. can be such a challenge.
Feeding / Diet Monitoring
There may be a need for a soft, low-sodium or diabetic diet, or for help with feeding, cueing or prompting for those with dementia. We will monitor changes in appetite or weight. Checking the refrigerator and cupboards for outdated or spoiled food is also part of our role. Most seniors do not drink enough water. Your caregiver will remind and encourage you to increase fluid intake.
Exercise / Walking Program
We can help with a prescribed exercise program from your physiotherapist or general exercise that incorporates your need for fresh air and physical activity. Strong leg muscles reduce risk of falling and walking daily will increase circulation, maintain bone density and reduce swelling of the lower legs. Complete Care Coordination understands the importance of this and, as part of our quality home care assistance in Montreal, all changes in mobility or balance will be reported.
Monitoring Vital Signs & Medications
Hypertension requires monitoring of blood pressure and diabetics need their blood glucose measured. Temperature, pulse, and respirations are all indicators that your caregiver can monitor to help your doctor diagnose your condition.
Keeping track of your medications can be difficult, especially if you are taking several. A caregiver can remind you of the appropriate time and ensure that you receive your refills when needed. Swallowing pills is difficult for some seniors, so pills can be crushed for you or dissolved in a liquid with your pharmacist’s permission. Would a weekly pill container help? We can arrange one with your pharmacy.
Alzheimer’s / Impaired Memory Cueing
When memory loss, confusion, anxiety or depression affects someone we love, it has a devastating effect on the whole family. While there is often a feeling of helplessness, there are some things that we can do. Gentle reminders, given in a discreet way, allow you to maintain a sense of dignity and independence. With a patient approach and clear, simple directions, a person with memory loss is less likely to become frustrated or disheartened. Your caregiver will assist you to be the best that you can be while ensuring your safety, comfort and optimum health.
Assist at Medical Appointments
As part of our senior care Montreal services, your caregiver will help you get ready, take you by car or taxi to your doctor or dentist, wait with you and help you to give the doctor the necessary information about medication, symptoms, and medical history. Follow–up prescriptions can be filled and the caregiver will report the date of the next appointment or consultation. This is all part of the professional and unmatched eldercare in Montreal provided by Complete Care Coordination.
As we age, having to get up during the night becomes a certainty rather than a possibility. Perhaps you are concerned about falling on your way to the bathroom or have difficulty getting out of bed. Having someone stay with you overnight can alleviate these concerns.
Incontinence management is critical to maintain good skin integrity. Symptoms of urinary tract infection and prolonged constipation are two important issues that your caregiver will monitor. It is important to address these conditions to avoid an unnecessary hospitalization.
Physiotherapy / Reduce Risk of Falls
Our physiotherapists are available to come to your home as needed to help you regain strength following an injury, surgery or hospitalization. As part of our senior care Montreal services, he/she will evaluate proper body mechanics and the need for a cane, walker, or other devices for safely maneuvering from bed or chair in order to reduce your risk of falls or injury.
Cardiac / Diabetes Care
If you have a cardiac condition, our caregivers are trained to check your blood pressure and heart rate. Blood sugar monitoring and making sure the appropriate medication is taken at specified intervals is critical to optimum health for diabetics. Monitoring can be recorded over a period of time and may help your doctor in your ongoing treatment.
After abdominal surgery or hip replacement, recovery is often a painful and lonely time! A private caregiver at the bedside will notice if your IV is about to run dry, call for the nurse for pain medication on time, and support you safely when getting out of bed. Sometimes, just a hand to hold during the night and knowing you are not alone is as healing as your medication.
At Home Palliative / Cancer Care
For those who wish to spend their final weeks and days in the privacy of their own home, we can provide round-the-clock care to ensure that your loved one remains in a caring environment that maintains their dignity. At Complete Care Coordination, we believe no one should have to choose between necessary medical care and the importance of being with family in an emotionally comforting place. We work closely with doctors and nurses from the CLSC to ensure that the best possible care is provided.
Being in a hospital can be very unsettling for an elderly person. The new environment is strange and many different people are involved in your care. Think of how nice it would be to have a friendly consistent face appear at your bedside to stay with you and help with your personal needs. Your caregiver will relay information about your condition to your family.
