Caregiver, Homemaker/Companion

Welcome to INSPIRED Wellness

Helping seniors live safely and independently at home with more joy!

I've been working in a nursing home facility for the past 7 years, and while they are necessary when the time is needed, my goal is to help seniors stay in their homes longer, or where ever they call home.

Companionship

  • Providing company, companionship and friendly conversations.
  • Playing games or engaging in mind stimulating activities.
  • Taking short outings to the yard or for short walks when possible.
  • Offering seniors medication reminders, but not assisting with administration.
  • Light exercise guidance within the patient’s limitations and comfort level.

Homemaker

  • Preparing light meals such as soups, sandwiches or snacks.
  • Assisting with light housework and chores such as dusting, laundry and light cleanup.
  • Running errands such as short grocery trips, picking up medications, etc.
  • Transportation for elderly to doctor’s appointments and other outings.

Did you know...

Science has shown that seniors that stay actively engaged with others and keep their mind working can minimize the progression of and reduce the onset of memory related conditions. 

Seniors with regular companionship seem to become ill less often, suffer less from depression and heal faster from injuries.

Caregiver Burnout

Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that may be accompanied by a change in attitude -- from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. 

Burnout can occur when caregivers don't get the help they need, or if they try to do more than they are able -- either physically or financially.
