Blackfoot In-Home Care
The Gables is committed to helping life become more comfortable and easy for our clients. There comes a time for everyone when you start needing some extra help and attention but many do not want to be put into an assisted living facility. For a large number of individuals, it is important to them to stay in their homes because that is where they feel the most comfortable. If staying in your home is what is best for you, we can help to make that possible. We are able to provide in-home services for you so you do not have to leave your home. We are providing excellent care and compassion from the comfort of your own home.
A lot of tasks need to be done on a normal day and as an individual gets older it can become harder to do all of them. At The Gables, we strive to make your day easier so you can use your energy to do things you enjoy. Depending on your needs, there are many different tasks that we can help you with. For some, we will help with food. This would include us doing the grocery shopping and food preparation so there are meals ready to go for the week. We also help with medication to ensure you are taking prescriptions when needed. For some, there may be prescriptions that are crucial for your health so we make sure you are taking those. Another common task that we help with is bathing and personal hygiene. Each individual is different, so we work to find what works for you. We can help as little or as much with tasks to make your days more enjoyable.
Beyond personal care, part of staying in your home is taking care of your home. We know that over time household chores can add up, and become overwhelming and hard to do. That is why we want to come and take those extra chores that aren’t as enjoyable and do them for you. Things inside the home such as washing, drying, and folding laundry. We can also help with deep cleaning such as scrubbing bathrooms, vacuuming, and mopping. Any chores within the home that you do not want to do or are not able to anymore we will do. We will come on a schedule so you do not have to think about cleaning your home. Helping with these tasks around your home makes it so you can give your time and energy to the things that you enjoy doing.
For some, one thing they need or want is companionship. Living on your own can be lonely and makes it hard to get social interaction. We know how important it is for each individual to have time with others for their health. Our companionship services are for those that want or need to spend time with others in order to get that social interaction. To ensure you are receiving the companionship needed, we come to your home with the sole purpose of sitting down to have a conversation with you. At The Gables, we want to get to know you and give you something to look forward to. That is why we will create a schedule to come to visit, it can be daily, weekly or however often you choose. This allows you to have social interactions without leaving their home and you will know what to expect each visit.
