Home Care Services

The aging process can be an emotional and challenging time for all involved. At Classic Home Care our goal is to provide quality care that enables older adults to live happier, healthier lives at home. Just because you can't be at your loved one's home doesn't mean they have to be alone.

Classic Home Care provides home health care and companionship to senior adults living in the Central and South Florida area. We provide homemakers, companions, certified nursing assistants (CNAs), and home health aides (HHAs) to those in need of assistance.

Phone calls are answered personally 24/7, whether it’s a referral inquiry or general question. We can advise you of all available options, assist you in the decision-making process, and support you in managing the realities of a practical and compassionate plan of care for your loved one.

Caregivers

Caregivers are comprised of certified nursing assistants (CNAs), home health aides (HHAs) and companion/homemakers. In addition to providing companionship, these professionals are trained to help seniors maintain as independent of a lifestyle as possible. Our clients have varying degrees of disability for home care assistance, ranging from the need to have complete and total care to the need for minimal assistance, and we adapt to those needs.

All of the caregivers must undergo State approved schooling, a Level 2 FBI and Local background screening. Many of our Caregivers have driver's licenses as well as a car available to take their clients to doctor appointments, movies, restaurants, grocery shopping, or other similar activities. The caregivers will provide the best care possible for your loved ones.

Caregivers are experienced in:

  • Maintaining a neat and tidy home (specifically kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom)
  • Preparing nutritious and balanced meals that reflect the client's tastes
  • Shopping for required groceries both with and independent of the client
  • Feeding the client when necessary
  • Assisting with ambulation
  • Bathing the bed-bound client or helping with showering
  • Dressing assistance to reduce unnecessary painful limb stretching
  • Transferring clients from bed to chair or wheelchair
  • Administering medication with family oversight provided
  • Senior home care services
  • Continued education in Alzheimer’s and Dementia

How to Determine an Aging Parent Needs Help at Home

 

 

How will you know when your elderly parents need help at home? One thing is certain: your parents aren’t likely to be the ones who tell you they need a helping hand!

Admitting the need for help and accepting assistance are not easy for people as they age. The responsibility often falls on family members to recognize the signs that an aging loved one might need support with completing activities of daily living (ADLs).

Seniors have a strong desire to remain independent and in control of their own lives for as long as possible. Typically, an older adult will experience a traumatic event precipitating the realization that they need assistance. Because adult children are often unable to participate in making care decisions before a crisis takes place, the added emotional stress of a sudden hospitalization or fall further complicates this process. One way to avoid this is to start regularly monitoring your parents’ physical and mental abilities and researching long-term care options. This will ensure you are prepared should your parents begin to show signs of needing help.
