There are various reasons a person may need human assistance around the home: a disability, an injury, illness, maternity. Most commonly, as we get older, the abilities we formerly took for granted become more challenging. When people try to ignore, or worse yet hide, these changes, they risk declining health, injury, and nursing home placement.
Often, the services of LoveJoy Community Services is not just for a client, it's for the client's family as well. Too often, families and family caregivers underestimate the physical and emotional toll of caring for a loved one who is either dealing with a chronic illness or injury or just getting older. Instead of getting the assistance needed, they feel guilty for needing help.
We have structured our services to support the whole family.
The amazing part is that just a little help, a few times per week, is sometimes all that is needed.
We offer home care services for all of the following situations:
• Post- hospital discharge
• Stroke recovery
• Surgery recovery
• Respite for caregivers
• Overnight stays
• Senior/ elder care (including Dementia and Alzeimer’s care)
All of our caregivers are very well screened including: Background checks, driving history and employment history.
