24-Hour Care

24-hour home care provides older adults and their families with peace of mind and much-needed assistance. Families can rest assured that their loved ones have a professional companion that will take care of their immediate and daily needs, and monitor safety. They can enjoy peace of mind and a good night’s sleep knowing their loved ones have the best of care.

People with advanced illness, mid to late-stage dementia or with frailty syndrome will benefit from living at home with around-the-clock care.

If you’re looking for an alternative to living in a facility, daily home care is a cost-effective, comprehensive alternative. The emotional strain of moving to a new place, losing their familiar environment and routines, often makes recovery more difficult, and they decline physically and lose independence. Their quality of life can suffer.

With round-the-clock support, your loved one can stay at home with care that supports safety and promotes optimal well-being. Personal caregivers can provide personalized care fitted to the client’s hobbies, lifestyle, status, and condition.
As your loved one requires more care, we can help you increase the level of care from 8 to 12 to 24 hours of care.

Especially with clients needing more care, we can:

  • Calm agitation, helping clients who have lost their sense of time and place
  • Provide companionship for moments of great anxiety
  • Help with personal and medical needs at night
  • Personal care to reduce skin infections and chance of urinary tract infections
  • Reduce the risk of fall with support getting in and out of bed

With around-the-clock care, there is always someone watching out for your loved one, offering emotional support and keeping them safe.

Also, we can provide help in all areas of daily living including:

Hospital to Home Care

Coming home after a hospital stay, a client may need more care and attention during this transition. One of the main reasons for readmission or slow recovery is the lack of proper support and care after leaving the hospital. Whether your loved one is coming directly from the hospital or a rehabilitation or care facility, in-home care can make a big difference in a safe and successful recovery.

The first 72 hours after a procedure or hospital stay is a critical and vulnerable time for clients, often involving changes in habits, diet, exercise and daily routines. Experienced and caring support provides monitoring, reminders, and the emotional support needed to recover optimally at home.

  • Transport to appointments, rehab sessions, and social events
  • Personalized consultation and care plan
  • Regular status updates between the care team and family
  • Rehabilitation reminders, companionship, and physical support
  • Safety and fall prevention

Stroke Care

Post-Stroke recovery is a challenge. IHECS can help.

Caregivers play an important role through the post-stroke recovery process starting from day one. Clients must overcome physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges and many stroke survivors report frustrations or hopelessness with the recovery process. It is crucial to take a proactive and informed approach to post-stroke care and often our professional caregivers can help ease the physical and emotional stress.

Tips for Post-Stroke Recovery for a Successful Recovery at Home

Follow the advice of experts:
It is crucial to maintain regular appointments with your doctors and follow their instructions. This is critical to a successful recovery.

Accommodate your home to your needs:
You may require medical equipment, such as a walker, a wheelchair, or a hospital bed in the home. In addition, your home may require safety modifications before you can feel comfortable. We help you make these accommodations easier.

Follow up on your blood work.

Know and understand your limitations:
Independence is of great value to us all. However, anyone recovering from a stroke must recognize that the recovery process cannot be rushed. Your brain is rebuilding damaged synapses, which can cause mental fogginess or a sense of mild confusion. Your body is recovering as well and activities that once came natural, such as walking or hand movement, may present new physical challenges. Receiving support from a professional caregiver jump starts you to a successful recovery.

Stick to your therapy schedule.

Watch your diet.

IHECS Professional caregivers are here to help.

Parkinson’s Care

We know that living with Parkinson’s disease can be tiring for both the client and their family. A chronic, neurodegenerative disease can be hard to handle. Our philosophy is based on caring for the family as a whole.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease, but there are many things we can do to manage its symptoms and maintain or improve the quality of life for the client. This includes relieving the symptoms enough to enjoy life.

Treatments for Parkinson’s disease generally are designed to maintain quality of life, improve mobility and everyday functions, reduce tremors and rigidity, reverse the slowing of movements, keep mental sharpness, and work to improve balance, posture, speech, and writing skills. Its treatment approaches may include lifestyle modifications, medication, physical therapy, exercise, surgery, home care assistance, support groups, and speech therapy. We will work with your family to make a personalized care plan tailored to your individual needs. This will ensure your loved one’s being able to enjoy an optimal quality of life.

Speak to your doctor regarding the best course of medication for your loved one. Treatments may vary for individual cases. There are also surgical options which you may discuss with your family doctor or specialist. As well as surgery and medication, alternative treatments are being explored.

While Parkinson’s is a fairly complex neurological disease, fortunately for us, the symptoms and onset follow a clear pattern. If you notice any of the symptoms related to Parkinson’s, consult your family doctor to get a diagnosis and begin proactive treatments.

If you are struggling with Parkinson’s, please contact us as soon as possible to explore and personalize your options for home care. Our experienced and trained caregivers will follow our primary goal, which is to maintain personal independence while providing peace of mind and downtime for the family.

  • Transportation and Errands

    As most sufferers of Parkinson’s are not able to drive, having our caregivers giving them rides or arrange transportation to appointments, shopping, physiotherapy, and social events can be a huge relief for family members, allowing them to follow their own schedules and avoid taking time off work.

  • Meal Preparation and Nutritional Guidance

    Maintaining a healthy diet is very important for Parkinson’s clients. Helping to strengthen muscles and bones and prevent muscle atrophy and fat will help keep your loved one healthy and happy. Our home caregivers can make meals that will provide your whole family with the nutrition they need to stay healthy and strong in their later years.

  • Bathing, Dressing, Hygiene

    One of the most frustrating things about Parkinson’s for many clients is how it interferes with their ability to take care of their daily needs. We know how to give assistance to them while guiding them to maintain optimum independence.

  • Medication

    Our caregivers can take the worry of keeping track of medications off your shoulders. We’ll keep track of when it’s time to take medications and charts when they were taken.

  • Mobility Assistance

    Our trained caregivers will be able to give daily support in walking, sitting, moving, and knowing just how to support your loved one while allowing them to do all that they can independently.

We also hire individual caretakers who can form warm and caring social relationships with your loved ones. Having an engaging, amiable relationship with their regular caregiver goes a long way in ensuring a client’s well-being.

Our caregivers are well trained in their knowledge of Parkinson’s disease and will know what is coming and be ready when it comes.

Advances in cancer treatment and changes in health care systems have led to shorter hospital stays.

We also enable family members to go home in peace, knowing our professional and trustworthy caregivers are beside their loved ones.

Our professional caregivers empower our clients to focus solely on their recovery and we help make the transition to home care after cancer treatment more enjoyable and painless.

IHECS caregivers can help prepare meals, do light housework, help with bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, give medication reminders, provide companionship, assist with exercising, provide transportation to and from doctors’ appointments or treatments. IHECS caregivers are the trusted, professional choice for cancer care.
