Conversation and Companionship
CHC caregivers are available to provide clients company and engage in conversation, or to sit down to share a meal together. Social contact such as this is proven to enhance the health, happiness and quality of life of seniors.
CHC caregivers prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing clients to help with preparation according to their ability. Many seniors do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps seniors get the nutrition they need to enjoy healthier living.
These services can be done in either the client’s home or the Laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing and putting things away. CHC caregivers involve clients to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
CHC light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping and mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder. CHC does not provide outdoor cleaning or maintenance.
CHC caregivers shop for groceries at stores of their clients’ preference and run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office. Clients may choose to stay home or help with the shopping and errands as an excellent way to stay active and engaged. CHC caregivers will use any coupons provided.
CHC caregivers provides transportation incidental to other care services, such as taking clients to medical appointments, barbershops, beauty salons, shopping, or wherever else a client wants to go. Getting seniors out and about is good for their mind, body and spirit.
Although CHC caregivers cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. CHC caregivers can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.
CHC caregivers assist clients with washing and combing their hair and other grooming tasks to enable them to feel good about their appearance.
CHC tailors care to each client’s needs—from a few hours a week to full-time care. Through our live-in services we provide full-time care by CHC caregivers who live in the client’s home to provide in-home care on a daily basis. The client and family may designate the types of non-medical in-home care services that are to be provided.

Respite Care or Relief for Family
Caregiving can be rewarding and often strengthens bonds within a family. At the same time, caregiving can be demanding amidst life’s other responsibilities.
Family caregivers and those in their care can benefit from a little time off now and then. That is why CHC caregivers offers respite caregiving. This service can be scheduled as needed to provide family caregivers time to run errands, go shopping or get some much-needed rest.
