Companion and Housekeeping
Edna has lived in the same home for more than 50 years. She and her husband bought it as newlyweds. The couple raised three children in the house. But when Edna's husband suddenly passed away, her family became concerned about her well being. No one wanted to see her live anywhere else. Ava, their youngest daughter, was worried enough about her mother's safety and well being that she discussed the situation with her siblings. The children decided to contact Right at Home.
Beth, a Right at Home carer, visits Edna several days a week to make sure she is safe and content. Edna loves talking to Beth about her seven grandchildren. Beth often does light housekeeping as she listens. And she frequently makes Edna's lunches before sitting down with her to play cards and puzzles. Whenever Edna wants to visit her friends or shop, Beth is always there to provide a lift and carry her groceries.
Right at Home provides numerous companionship/housekeeping and wellness services to Edna, including:
- Safety supervision
- Social interaction
- Light housekeeping
- Grocery shopping
- Running errands
- Medication reminders
