Home Care During COVID-19
Do you have a loved one in hospital, a seniors residence or long-term care facility that you are worried about during this pandemic and want to bring them home temporarily?
Thornbrook can help.
As your local home care provider, we’ve been helping seniors remain independent for over 25 years.
As the COVID-19 virus spreads, our hospitals may become overwhelmed, forcing patients who still need care, out of hospital, to make room for more seriously ill patients. Seniors residences may stop family and friends from visiting and healthy residents may be living with residents who are sick – some who may be infected with the virus and not show any symptoms. Long term care facilities suffer from chronic understaffing. Many staff members are part-time and work at other facilities, making the risk of spreading the disease much higher.
We offer flexible support on a temporary or long-term basis based on a care plan tailored to your unique needs. All our care services are overseen by nurse case managers, and include live-in caregivers, homemakers and housekeepers, companion services and more.
Whether you require company for errands and doctor’s visits, or assistance with daily tasks including bathing, meal preparation, and medication, we will work with you to develop a care plan that meets your needs.
And, with your permission, we’ll keep your loved one’s physician, retirement home or long term care facility up to date on how they are doing.
Services to support continued care at home include:
- Registered Nursing Visits
- Registered Nursing Care
- Homemakers / Companions
- 24-Hour Live-in Care
- Overnight Care
A typical day of care for your loved one at home
Our caregiver can arrive bright and early to help your loved start their day. We can assist with getting out of bed, personal grooming and getting dressed. Need help making breakfast? Leave that to us. And we can help with feeding, if required.
After morning care and breakfast, we’ll offer physical and mental stimulation programs – let us know what your loved one enjoys – puzzles, crosswords, scrap booking, flower arranging, chair yoga, or playing cards or bingo.
We can make and serve a nutritious lunch and then offer virtual group programming during the afternoon. Before our caregiver leaves for the evening, they’ll assist with dinner and get your loved one ready for bed.
Overnight care is also available if needed.
