At Ambassador Home Care, our mission is to help older adults and disabled people achieve a higher quality of life, with respect and dignity, through independent living in their own home.
Personal Assistance Services (PAS) and Respite Services (temporary help for primary caregivers) that assist our participants with their ADLs and IADLs.
Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
Includes bathing, toileting, grooming, dressing, eating, and mobility (moving around their home).
Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL)
This can include housekeeping chores, paying bills, shopping, meal preparation, daily medication reminders, letter writing and phone calls, transportation to doctors and other appointments.
Our caregivers provide personal care for our clients that includes assistance with showers and baths, grooming and dressing; hair, skin, foot, nail, and oral care; assist with ambulation and transfer (wheelchair, walker, cane, etc.), clean dentures, repositioning in bed, and incontinence care.
This includes meal planning and preparation, assistance with meals, and general reminders. Our caregivers will work with the family to comply with any dietary restrictions, allergies, preferences, and other requirements.
Caregivers can assist with grocery shopping, errands, and transport to doctors and other appointments such as barbershops, beauty salons, religious services, or senior center activities. Errands may include mailing letters and packages, picking up prescriptions from the pharmacy, or returning books to the library.
Housekeeping chores that can be handled by a caregiver include washing clothes and linens and other laundry services, changing bed linens, washing dishes, vacuuming, light dusting, tidying up and organizing, watering plants, and taking out the trash and recycling.
Mail and Expenses
Our caregivers can assist our clients with sorting and reading mail, writing letters, making phone calls, and keeping track of expenses. They might also assist with keeping a record of medical and health issues and monitoring wellness.
To provide a feeling of warm companionship and keep individuals informed and engaged, our caregivers can engage the person in light conversation, which helps to enhance your loved one’s emotional wellbeing and improve their quality of life.
We know that caring for a loved one can be stressful and demanding. Respite care is available for families who need just a few hours or days to recharge, so they can return with a fresh perspective. Ambassador Home Care provides exceptional care services for your loved one while you spend time caring for yourself. We can merge seamlessly into your schedule, giving you the helping hand you need. Most respite care services are provided on a temporary or short-term basis. However, if your daily or weekly routine of caregiving has become overwhelming, we can perform regular respite visits (such as weekly, biweekly, or monthly) to reduce your workload.
We are flexible in our care planning and scheduling, so that you and your loved one get the respite care services you need, when you need them. We can provide whatever home care services you need for a few hours, a day, a week or ongoing. If your friend or family member needs specialized care, we will assign skilled caregivers who have expertise in these areas.
It is extremely difficult for a family to receive the news that a parent or grandparent is suffering from Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia. They may find that the level of care required changes over time. At Ambassador Home Care, our caregivers have a lot of experience caring for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s. We can provide personal care services; help with shopping, meal preparation, and housekeeping; and companionship services. With in-home care, your loved one can stay in familiar surroundings while they receive the assistance they need in their daily life activities.
Care and Support
For those clients who require it, we offer around-the-clock 24-hour care.
