Alvita Care: What are our Domiciliary Care Options?

An often seen photo of a caregiver and her elderly patient sitting togetherDomiciliary Care refers to “homecare that helps people cope with disability or illness, and allows them to maintain independence.”

For many adult children taking care of sick or disabled parents or grandparents, this sort of help is completely necessary.

Both adult children and the elderly are able to handle their lives in a way that fits their needs, without feeling too dependent or overwhelmed.

This is at the core of what Alvita Care aims to provide: customized plans for clients and their families that meet the unique needs and desires of each individual.

Domiciliary care options here at Alvita Care run the gamut, covering everything from personal care services to geriatric care management.
Personal Care Services
Personal Care Services refers to assistance with essential activities of daily living, including personal hygiene, dressing, bathing, walking and mobility. These are tasks that are harder to complete as the effects of aging arise, or due to injury. Whether you require several hours of assistance per week, around-the-clock live-in care, or less frequent or intermittent care, we can help.

Household Services
Our full complement of homemaking services removes the stress of household tasks that our clients are unable to or no longer wish to perform on their own. These services have the added benefit of enhancing safety by ensuring a clean and uncluttered living environment. These include helping in and around the home, including meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry assistance, grocery shopping and running errands.

Companion Care
The benefits of companion care are endless. Not only are the elderly able to engage with another consistently, they are able to indulge in their favorite activities. These can include conversation, reading or playing games, crafts projects and gardening, attending events and appointments and helping to correspond with and visit friends.

Respite & Relief Care Services
Alvita Care provides short-term relief for family members that are responsible for any of the above-listed types of care identified on an ongoing basis. This can mean a night or weekend off, but it all depends on the wishes of the family.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
Family members providing care to loved ones who have Alzheimer’s are more likely to experience high levels of stress, anxiety and depression. Our staff, which has extensive experience caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, can provide needed breaks, which will benefit the family caregiver, the care recipient, and the rest of the family.

Geriatric Care Management
We will schedule necessary appointments, ensure prescriptions are reordered and delivered on time, and will handle unexpected issues as they arise. We can even attend appointments with you to advocate on your behalf.

Ultimately Avita Care is here to help. Domiciliary care is a thoughtful way to both ensure a safe, high quality life for the sick and elderly while easing the stress of care giving on families.
