Rates & Hours
From personal care services to companion care and many other care needs in between, Athens Advance Care offers a broad range of services that can be custom made to meet your family’s unique needs and preferences. While the tasks of each service might differ, the goal for all types of care remains the same: To provide compassionate quality home care while remaining at home. Our licensed caregivers provide compassionate assistance with personal care.
Bathing and Hygiene
For many health and social reasons, good personal hygiene is very important. Our in home personal caregivers are specially trained in bathing, personal hygiene, and other personal care services, and always focus on preserving the dignity, comfort, and health of each client.
Walking and Mobility
We recognize that our clients can benefit from regular movement both physically and mentally. Our personal caregivers carefully consider the physical limitations and comfort of each client’s ability to walk, climb stairs, get in and out of vehicles, and make other routine movements as they assist them.
Transfer and Posture
In addition to helping our clients with regular movement around the home or around town, our personal care services also concentrate on making sure each client maintains proper posture for eating or while sitting and reading or watching television. This helps with digestion and circulation. We can also assist with helping clients get in and out of bed or the bathroom.
Continence and Toileting Care
Our caregivers are trained and experienced in assisting with urinary and bowel care. We understand the role that toileting care can play in a client’s comfort, self-esteem, and social life.
Special Diets and Meal Preparation
We work with clients, families, and nutrition professionals to plan and prepare meals according to the specific needs of our clients. This can include shopping for special diets (diabetic, low-sodium, low-trans fat, etc.) and working to fix favorite dishes just right.
Some of our clients may have physical and emotional challenges in the ability to perform basic functions. Our personal care services and senior care centers provide exceptional sensitivity, care, and safety for clients with these challenges.
Our caregivers can help our clients with mouth, gum, and denture care to encourage better overall oral hygiene.
