How We Approach Sensitive Tasks

At Pear Tree, our guiding principle is always empowering your senior family member to live as independently as possible, while providing close assistance and reassurance where extra help is required. This thoughtful approach preserves dignity and simultaneously offers important physical and emotional care.

Bathing & Grooming: Our caregivers will help with showering, shaving, oral hygiene, hair styling, nail care, skin care, incontinence care, and using the restroom. We always prioritize privacy and gentle assistance.

Dressing: For many seniors, getting fully dressed without assistance is difficult or sometimes impossible due to limited mobility, reduced motor skills, or conditions like arthritis. Our caregivers are here to help with painful or challenging tasks like putting on socks or fastening buttons.

Mobility Support: Our caregivers’ top priority is safety and avoiding falls or injuries. They’re here to offer a steady arm for walking, provide wheelchair assistance, guide safe transfers from bed to chair, and even arrange home modifications like grab bars.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Care Services

Some common personal care services available include assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, mobility, and toileting. Instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) assistance like meal preparation, medication reminders, transportation, shopping, companionship, and light housekeeping may also be provided. The range of services offered depends on the individual provider.

Personal care services are provided by professional caregivers that work for Pear Tree Home Care. Background checks, training, and certifications are completed.

These services allow seniors to retain their independence and remain living comfortably and safely in their own home. They receive assistance with daily care tasks they have difficulty performing on their own. This can improve quality of life, reduce injury/fall risk, and provide companionship.

Payment options include out-of-pocket private pay, long-term care insurance benefits, or veteran’s assistance programs. Many families choose private pay options for the flexibility and continuity of care.

It’s ideal to introduce personal care early on after difficulty with daily self-care tasks becomes consistent and safety/health begins declining. Starting care while relatively healthy and active allows the senior time to adjust and retain independence longer.

Key questions cover credentials, training procedures, care plan development process, communication/reporting methods, billing rates & structures, backup caregiver system for absences, and policies for obtaining patient feedback and addressing concerns.
