Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) include personal care activities that are necessary for maintaining an independent lifestyle and a high quality of life. Seniors and people with disabilities may have a harder time completing ADLs on their own. Our caregivers are specially trained to keep clients safe by assisting with the following ADLs:
- Personal Hygiene – our caregivers are trained to help with all aspects of personal hygiene including – showering/bathing, grooming, brushing teeth and skin care
- Continence – when clients are having difficulty controlling bladder and/or bowel movements, our caregivers can ensure that they are clean and dry
- Toileting – our caregivers are trained to assist clients who are having difficulty getting to and from the bathroom, using the bathroom properly, and even cleaning themselves, afterwards
- Dressing – when clients are having difficulty assembling an outfit or putting clothes on properly, our caregivers can assist
- Feeding – if clients are having difficulty feeding themselves, our caregivers are their to help)
- Ambulating or Functional Mobility – reducing fall risks if clients are having difficulty moving about freely and safely
The level of difficulty someone is having with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) often corresponds with how much help, supervision, and hands-on care may be needed in order to remain safe at home.
While basic ADLs focus on “physical” tasks including personal care and feeding, IADLs include activities that require more complex thinking and cognitive function.
Our experienced caregivers can assist with the following activities:
- Meal preparation and clean up
- Laundry including changing bed linens
- Medication reminders
- Light housekeeping

- Doctor appointments
- Hairdresser and barber shops
- Manicure/pedicure appointments

- Ensuring all safety procedures are followed (e.g. ensuring the stove is turned off after use)
Companions provide seniors with social support. Feelings of loneliness and social isolation put seniors at greater risk for premature death, dementia, heart disease, and stroke. Companion Care is especially good for clients who don’t have loved ones nearby. Our dedicated caregivers can help reduce some of this loneliness by offering companionship.
Our caregivers can help with:
- Morning wake up and evening tuck in
- Reading books together
- Watching movies or sporting events on TV
- Playing card games and board games
Additionally, we can take our clients on excursions including:
- Grocery shopping
- Events at the Senior Center, or to a museum or concert

Caring for someone who needs constant support can be exhausting. Often, there is little time for loved ones (often the primary caregivers) to take care of their own needs – and, finding time to relax and decompress is nearly impossible.
Respite Care is designed to provide loved ones the much-needed break they need in order to take an uninterrupted nap, go for a walk, go shopping or simply have quality time with family and friends.
Respite Care can provide both short and long-term relief. Care is provided at home and can be scheduled by the hour (for as many as 24 hours per day), or by the week with round-the-clock care called Extended Care (also referred to as, Live-In Care).
Primary Caregivers and Clients Benefit from Respite Care:
- Rest and re-energize with peace of mind
- Re-engage with friends, family, and colleagues
- Re-introduce healthy lifestyle choices including staying active and exercising

CARE AT HOME
When given the choice, most seniors prefer to live in the comfort of home. Studies have shown that remaining in the comfort of home is important for maintaining independence and a sense of control over one’s own life. Plus, by staying in the decision-making loop, there is a powerful psychological benefit that seniors feel which can even accelerate post-hospital recovery time.
Our caregivers can provide Private Home Care services wherever you or your loved one calls home including:
- Private Residences (stand-alone homes, condos or rental apartments)
- Assisted Living Communities
- Continuing Care Retirement Communities
- Nursing homes
- Rehabilitation Centers
- Skilled Nursing Facilities
We can also provide discharge services if you or your loved one is leaving an organization that provides assistance for the elderly.
Private Home Care can be significantly more cost-effective than a nursing home, also referred to as a skilled nursing facility.
Since it is difficult to predict when, or for how long, you or a loved one may need care, it is important to understand, and plan for, the financial impact of round the clock care.
According to a 2019 New York Life “Cost of Care Survey”, the average cost of for a room in a Nursing Home, is $107,000 per year. In the Northeast, that cost is significantly higher.
The average cost of a 1-bedroom apartment in an Assisted Living Community is $57,000 per year, and it can be as high as $144,000 in the Boston area.
Private Home Care, on the other hand is less expensive and allows the client to age in place in the comfort of their own home. The average in-home care cost is $50,918 a year for 40 hours of help per week (in Massachusetts that number is closer to $79,000 per year).
