At ameriCARE, we believe that every person deserves to live and thrive in the comfort of their own homes. Managing the challenges that come with aging, long-term illness, or surgery recovery can be overwhelming and adding a new environment on top of that can cause further stress. That’s why we work hard to help keep people healthy and happy in the safety and comfort of their homes for as long as possible.
ameriCARE’s 10 Core Values for Helping Our Clients Live Happier@Home
When you work with ameriCARE to develop an in-home care plan for yourself or a loved one, we’ll start by getting to know you. We’ll meet over the phone and in person to learn more about your needs and your goals, and then work to match you with a caregiving team that has the skills and experience to match your lifestyle and personality.
We build each of our custom care plans on 10 core principles for better care:
1 – Let’s Eat!
Assisting with Healthful Nutrition
Our caregivers help to provide tasty meals with lots of variety and balance to help our clients meet their dietary needs in a more manageable well-rounded way. We even work to balance comfort food and nutrition to keep things delicious and inviting!
2 – Staying Connected
Using Tech and In-Person Methods to Maintain Connections
We work to create new opportunities for social integration with our clients’ family and friends – both in person and remotely with the use of technology to prevent loneliness and isolation.
3 – Medication Management
Overseeing and Monitoring Clients’ Medication Intake
Our experienced caregivers help to oversee the daily ritual of taking the right medications, in the right dose, at the right time. In doing so, we can keep our clients, their doctors, and their family updated, confident, and reassured.
4 – Chauffer Service
Getting Our Clients Where They Need to Go
Our caregivers help our clients get to everything from doctors’ appointments to social engagements and more. We’re here to help our clients enjoy the ride!
5 – Look Your Best!
Helping Our Clients Get Dressed and Feel Confident
Self-confidence and self-esteem are an incredibly important component to living a more fulfilled life. That’s why our caregivers work hard to help their clients with grooming, dressing, and hygiene.
6 – Staying Active
Helping Our Clients Get Moving
We help our clients stay as active as possible by doing the things that they’ve always enjoyed while introducing new opportunities for movement. We also encourage the movements and exercises recommended by other members of our clients’ care teams, like physical and occupational therapists.
7 – Buddy in the House
Becoming a Real Friend
Our caregivers go the extra mile to share stories, talk about the news, and get involved in our clients’ favorite activities. This level of companionship, conversation, and activity help to bring life and energy into the home.
8 – Routine Flexibility
Understanding Our Clients’ Evolving Need
When we join your care team, we will help develop and maintain a comforting routine, while staying flexible to meet new needs. Our caregivers work hard to make their care more personal, flexible, and enjoyable for our clients.
9 – Focusing on Self-Improvement
Making Healthy Lifestyle Changes with Real Support
We always encourage as much independence as possible and closely follow the guidance of your care team and certified therapists to help with any needed lifestyle changes and adaptations to changes in mobility.
10 – Mental Stimulation
Finding New Ways to Stay Sharp
For our clients experiencing cognitive decline, we work to create routines that form a comfort zone, set up systems to help them remember while relieving anxiety.
