Home Health Care in Connecticut: Helping You Live Your Life

 

Have you or someone you love reached “that certain age,” when the daily life that used to seem natural and easy started to become more challenging? Would having caring, professional assistance bring relief and let you continue to live where and how you always have?

At Caregiving by Kathy, we can help. Invite our household and healthcare staff into your home. We promise you’ll be amazed at the difference they will make for you.

Everyday Personal and Household Services

We’ll start with companionship, which is the value we add to all we do. Without it, what we do would be handled by housekeeping services or daily nurse visits. We do much more. Take laundry as an example. We don’t just wash and dry a client’s clothing. We fold it neatly and put it where its owner can find it easily.

Personal Care Assistance

Our companionship extends to the most discreet and personal assistance we provide: showering, dressing, and toilet use. We know how it compromises someone’s comfort and dignity to have a stranger assume responsibilities like these.

Health and Wellness

Our staff performs wellness checks for clients multiple times each day. We look for any signs of illness or injury, but our checks also tell these folks that someone cares about them.

We also remind the people we assist to take their medications and not miss any meals. Sometimes seniors lose their appetites or ability to taste their food. And like anyone, they lose track of their medications, especially ones that have been prescribed recently.

Care Intervals

The amount of time we spend with our clients depends on their needs. While some prefer assistance and company for a few hours per day or week, others need care daily, even continually. So we offer the following scheduling options:

Companion/hourly care

Respite care as needed

Overnight care

24-hour care

The arrangements can be ongoing or change with the patient’s condition.

Specialized Care

Caregiving by Kathy also provides care during special or urgent circumstances. These are times when our clients are not entirely sure what type of care or how much of it they might need. All they know is that they will need extra help.

Post-Surgery/Procedure Care

One particular specialized care situation is when a client needs 24-hour attention to recover from a surgical procedure or medical treatment. Since it’s hard to know how long recovery will be, we might cut back the care hours after a few days, a few weeks, or longer.

Hospice Care

People go into hospice care when they receive a terminal medical diagnosis. Providing hospice care calls for unique combinations of abilities, such as empathy, listening skills, a cheerful yet realistic disposition, and the fortitude to attend to someone through their last hours.

Emergency Services

An emergency can be nearly anything. The only thing all emergencies share is that they’re unexpected and unpleasant, and sometimes tragic.

Whatever the situation, we’re always there to help or simply offer comfort and companionship.

Read a few of our client success stories & home care reviews.

I have been in the field with seniors for 10 years and I can not say enough when it comes to how passionate Kathy and her team are about their clients. Her flexibility and ability to meet everyones needs is commendable. When you work with Kathy you feel like family and that is the kind thing a lot of companies don't have.

I cannot recommend Caregiving by Kathy enough. This whole process was very new to us and they walked us through the whole process every step of the way. I was amazed they even coordinated with moms nursing and physical therapy agency to create the best care plan for her! Everything they did was customized to us and they found the perfect caregiver for us. Our caregiver Helen was a Godsend and she was so great with my mother. I slept so much better at night knowing she was safe with someone I trusted!

Steve Weathersby

All of Kathy's employees work so well with the elderly and they were all so great with my mom who passed just a year ago. Also, an important point is that Kathy herself is always the first to show up when there is an emergency and that personal touch helps relieve some stress of the moment. l HIGHLY recommend Caregiving by Kathy to anyone who needs an aid for either themselves or an elderly loved one.
