When someoneÂ is ill, itâ€™s natural to want them to have undivided attention around the clock.
But as much as loved ones would like to always be there, the demands of work and home donâ€™t just go away.
Thatâ€™s where a sitter can help. A sitterâ€™s role is to stay by the patientâ€™s side and ensure they feel safe and secure.
For your convenience, we can accommodate same day and emergency requests.
The inability to safely get up and go like we used to is one of the first major adjustments many of us usually make
Our Personal Companions can help give back that important aspect of independent living. Every Companion is required to maintain a valid driverâ€™s license and insurance. We provide training on how to safely transport clients of all abilities.
Appropriate arrangements forÂ transportation are included in the customized care plan.
In-Home Aide Care
Sometimes we need a little extra help.
When you or your loved one doesnâ€™t quite need the services of a full-time Nurse, but does need services not offered by a Sitter, you can depend on the care provided by certified In-Home Aides.
All Annasus In-Home Aides are accredited and experienced Certified Nurse Assistants (CNAs).
For your convenience, they are available to provide care in clients’ homes, hospital rooms, nursing homes or rehab facilities.Â Â
Meal Planning, Preparation and Grocery Shopping
The foods we eat should comfort our souls, remind us of our history and heritage, and provide joy to both the cook and the diner.
Because we focus on the client, assistance with meals is customized to their preferences, interests, and abilities.
Personal Companions encourage clients to participate in grocery shopping and meal preparation. Food choices are made in accordance with clientsâ€™ preferences and dietary needs.
Medicine can keep us alive. But experiences – and someone to share them with – give us something to live for.
Our Companions are trained to find the unique interests of each client they serve. And to provide opportunities, resources, and encouragement to help you or your loved ones stay engaged with the world.
Our goal is to help provide our clients opportunities to really live – not simply exist.
It is our pleasure to help you orÂ your loved ones stay engaged doing things they enjoy.
Medical advances are helping many of us live longer, healthier lives. But they are only effective when they are followed correctly.
The role of a Personal Companion is to help the client follow their medical care plan.
Companions do not administer medications to clients. However, they are trained to encourage their clients to follow their medical care providersâ€™ instructions.
Making life more pleasant for our clients is our number one priority. Light housekeeping duties are frequently part of a customized care plan.
We never forget that we are a guest in our clientsâ€™ homes. Only agreed-upon household tasks are performed, which canÂ be provided within full view of the client.
Changing Bed Linens
Clean, fresh bedding is essential for healthy living.
Ensuring our clients have fresh bed linens and clean, hygienic surroundings is one of our priorities.
Occasionally laundering soiled linens may be one of the light housekeeping duties included in a customized care plan.
The uncomplicated love of a pet is a proven health benefit.
Many people find the need to care for their pets to be a primary motivation to remain living in the comfort of their own homes.
You can count on us to provide assistance so that you or your loved ones can continue to safely take care of the needs of your pets.
Healthy, thriving plants help create a pleasing atmosphere.
As part of our goal to maintain a nurturing environment, watering and caring for houseplants can be included in a customized care plan. .
We have found this activity to be especially beneficial when performed with the client.
What happens to your loved one if something happens to you?
Taking on the care of a loved one is potentially a full-time, long-term undertaking.
Securing safe and reliable resources to help you is necessary for your own self-care.
Our Respite Care service is that trusted resource. We are available to provide temporary relief caregivers sometime require.
Our trained and experienced Companions will keep your loved one safe and secure in the comfort of familiar surroundings.
We are locally owned; you can reach a live member of our team 24 hours a day with any questions or concerns.
