Home Care for San Diego Seniors
Senior home care is often an emotional and difficult decision. Finding the right San Diego home care for yourself or your elderly relative is an important step in the process. Constant Companions understands how hard it is to choose the right home care, especially if needing dementia care or Alzheimers care and we’re here to help you through the process.
At Constant Companions, we view senior home care as our family taking care of yours. Our San Diego senior home care providers are part of a family run business. Since the business is not a franchise, we are able to add a personalized and sympathetic aspect to your care. We understand you and your family are choosing home care because you want specific and individual needs to be met, which often cannot be done in a nursing home environment.
Personable San Diego Home Care
Since our home care will enable you to stay in your hometown in living arrangements you feel comfortable with, we don’t want to turn it into a place of strangers or make you feel uncomfortable with who is coming in and out of your home each day. Therefore, we make sure you continually have the same caregiver, who will be your primary caregiver, and a back-up caregiver, who you will meet and who will take over visits if your primary caregiver can’t make it due to illness or other reasons. We’re able to make this possible due to our high employee retention and loyalty. Constant Companions’ founder, Gabriela Brown, was dismayed when she first started working in the senior home care business to see how the majority of San Diego senior home care providers sent a continual change of caregivers whom were unfamiliar to the clients; it provided a cold atmosphere that was not good for the client or the family. She started Constant Companions in order to offer a warm and personalized service that puts the client first and is in-tune to the family’s needs and wishes. Her desire is to make Constant Companions feel like an extension of your own family.
You’ll also have peace of mind knowing that you’re working with employees, not independent contractors, who have years of experience in providing care to seniors. Constant Companions takes care of all background screening, supervision, payroll, taxes, and paperwork for all of our caregivers. Our management team at Constant Companions will continually monitor your caregiver and make sure you and your family are having ongoing communication with your caregiver and ensure your needs are met, from medication and nutrition to entertainment and exercise.
To further make you feel like you’re working with a family and not a franchise, we provide all fees up front – there are no hidden fees you have to worry will pop up later. All our services are included in a flat fee that is a reasonable and fair rate. You and your family are able to talk with and interview potential caregivers before they’re assigned to you. We’re also available 24/7 and if you call us, you will reach a member of Constant Companions, not an answering machine.
San Diego Living with Senior Home Care
Since we are a San Diego-based company and have been providing senior home care for over nine years, we understand your environment and strive to keep you enjoying the San Diego lifestyle you love as much as possible. We believe seniors should have a high quality of life and are dedicated to helping them live it. We also know it’s important for seniors to be socially active and engage their mind, and we will assist them in being able to engage in these types of activities.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care
For dementia care and Alzheimer’s care, we take care to understand the delicate family matters and emotions that can arise. We understand how devastating it is to have to put a loved one in a nursing home and how frightening it is for the Alzheimer’s or dementia sufferer to be in a new environment away from all that is familiar. Therefore, we do our best to educate families that senior home care is possible for those with these conditions. We provide one-on-one care and enrichment activities such as puzzles, looking at family photos, music, crafts, and other activities.
The Constant Companions Mission
Just because someone is aging doesn’t mean they don’t deserve respect and love from all people they come in contact with – especially if that person is their caregiver. We work and stand by our mission to enrich the lives of each of our clients by providing the best in compassionate care, second only to family. We look forward to speaking with you about how our work family can partner with your family.
