Happier and More Confident at Home
rather remain in familiar surroundings than move to assisted living-or a skilled nursing
facility Home is where the heart thrives - and family connects!
We're-here for this familiar story and countless others...
Mom knows where everything is. Her favorite chair is, just right. Friends and family are
nearby. But worry sets in - about her safety about whether she's eating right (or at all), or
about whether she's taking her medications on-time. Mom’s not getting around as well as
she used to either.
Nothing says love like giving Mom the boost she-needs to be independent, to age-on her
terms and be-safe and healthy.
This is where Interim HealthCare of Charleston can help.
Help for Aging Loved Ones
Interim HealthCare’s personal care and support services fill the gaps in whatever way each family needs. We provide care services throughout the Charleston area. Our paraprofessionals and clinicians are local, too – trained, skilled, competent, and personable. Who knows, it could be someone you have a connection with – a friend or neighbor.
Personal care typically addresses activities of daily living, or ADLs, that are essential for independent living. This includes:
Personal Care and Support Services for Yourself or Your Loved Ones
Toileting and continence
Transferring and mobility ( Standing,sitting, getting in and out of bed or the car )
Support services take care further, providing assistance with tasks such as:
Transportation to the doctor's
Meal Planning and Preparation
Writing letters or making appointments
Reminding mom when to take her medicines
Our HomeLife Enrichment® standard of care considers the whole person – mind, body, spirit, and family – and we use those four pillars as the foundation for every senior's personal care plan. This comprehensive approach to senior care is what makes Interim HealthCare unique.
Specialized Home Care for Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, a progressive medical condition that erodes memory, thinking, and problem-solving abilities and can dramatically alter behavior in later stages.
Interim HealthCare of Charleston offers advanced, customized care for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients that blends personal care and support services with activities such as music therapy to help create a safe, calming environment.
Help for Family Caregivers
Spouses and adult children are usually the first to step in and help their loved one with certain tasks. You do it from the heart, but it can wear you down. In-home care provides priceless respite for caregivers – for a couple of hours, for a day, or long enough for you and your own family to take some time away. Whether you need time to get your chores done, or simply some much-needed rest to recharge your inner strength, we’re here to help with respite care.
In-home personal care can provide long-term respite, too, by regularly taking over the care and light household tasks so you can devote yourself to spending quality time with your parents.
Personal CareServices Include:
24/7 Support Available
Meal Prep and Light Chores
