We service in decreasing the burden on family, decreasing the family’s likelihood of having a complicated grief and prepares family members for their loved one’s death.

Hospice programs generally use a multidisciplinary team approach, including the services of a nurse, doctor, social worker and clergy in providing care. Also include drugs to control pain; continuous home care at times of crisis; and bereavement services. Although hospice care does not aim for cure of the terminal illness, it may treat potentially curable conditions such as pneumonia and bladder infections, with brief hospital stays if necessary.

What is Illness Care?

According to WHO, Illness Care improves the patient’s quality of life and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness. No patient should ever be told “there is nothing more that can be done”—it is never true and may be seen as abandonment of care.

We believe that a disease, however advanced it is, whatever treatments the patient has gone through, there is always something which can be done to improve the quality of the life remaining to the patient. We focus on the relief and prevention of suffering in order to distress physical, psychosocial and spiritual pain. Our goal is to maximise the quality of life in providing psychosocial and spiritual care and help in providing relief from pain and other physical symptoms.

What is Live-in Care?

Live-in Caregivers live in the patients home, having their own room within the home to provide round-the-clock care. This setting eliminates the time the caregivers consume in commuting to and from your home. This also adds utmost companionship to the patient with social isolation or loneliness due to disability or health deterioration.

Why choose Live-in Care?

The Care live-ins provide is the same as other types of Home Care — personal care,
daily living, companionship, and nursing services (if trained and licensed), prepare
meals, shop, provide transportation to doctor’s appointments, church.

There are generally two types of live-ins: those who have their own home elsewhere
and those who live solely in the some of the client. These differences will affect the
type and cost of care. But in either case, a private room in the home is assigned to
the live-in, in addition to other reasonable amenities such as storage, parking,
kitchen privileges, etc.

Legal Details

The terms are always laid out in a contract clearly defining the responsibilities of both parties. A professional care provider like Golden Age Companions is ideal for protecting the rights and responsibilities of the client and the caregiver alike, live-in or otherwise.

cells to die (Stoessl, 1999).

What is Respite Care?

It could be a little harder to connect with the person you’re caring for when you’re overwhelmed by the daily pace of caregiving. Seeking support and maintaining your own health are key to managing your role as a caregiver.

Respite care is a service that provides caregivers with relief by temporarily taking over caregiving duties, giving the primary caregiver some time for themselves. Depending on your loved one’s needs, you could use respite services to give them company, to help with personal care like bathing, or even to provide medical assistance.

What is Stroke Rehabilitation?

Stroke affects approximately 795,000 people each year in the U.S. and is one of the leading causes of disability. Stroke survivors and their families can find workable solutions for early recovery and rehabilitation, right at their own home through Home Therapy. Having the therapy at home allows greater flexibility than other options. It can also be more convenient for them and their family.

The sooner a stroke survivor begins rehabilitation, the more likely they are to regain their lost skills and abilities. Rehabilitation actually begins in the hospital and then they choose the best setting for them depending on the severity of their disability and needs.

Why choose Stroke Rehabilitation?

Golden Age Companions promotes independence, as much as possible, and supports function development for a stroke survivor. We thrive to accomplish this in a way that preserves dignity and motivates them to polish-up basic skills that the stroke may have impaired – like bathing, eating, dressing and walking.

Rehabilitation Plan will depend on the part of the body or type of ability affected by stroke. Rehabilitation activities include:

  • Motor-skill exercises. Which can help improve muscle strength and coordination.
  • Mobility training. With the use of mobility aids, such as a walker, cane, wheelchair or ankle brace.
  • Constraint-induced therapy. An unaffected limb is restrained while you practice moving the affected limb to help improve its function. This therapy is sometimes called forced-use therapy.
  • Range-of-motion therapy. These are exercises that can ease muscle tension and help you regain range of motion.

Cognitive and emotional activities include:

  • Therapy for cognitive disorders. Occupational therapy and speech therapy can help patients with lost cognitive abilities, such as memory, processing, problem-solving, social skills, judgment and safety awareness.
  • Therapy for communication disorders. Speech therapy can help the patient to regain lost abilities in speaking, listening, writing and comprehension.
  • Psychological evaluation and treatment. The patient’s emotional adjustment might be tested. They might also have counseling or participate in a support group.
  • Medication. The patient’s doctor might recommend an antidepressant or a medication that affects alertness, agitation or movement.

*Stroke rehabilitation plan will change during recovery as the patient relearn skills and their needs change.

How long does stroke rehabilitation last?

It depends on the severity of the patient’s stroke and linked complications. Some patients recover quickly. But others need long-term stroke rehabilitation, which could last for months or years after their stroke.
