When it comes to in-home care services in Barrie, Right at Home offers a degree of compassionate and attentive treatment that allows us to fully meet the needs and exceed the expectations of both our clients and their families.
Adrienne Wood, coordinator of Barrie’s health care services team, sums up our core mission: "To be the family when family cannot be there." Trust is a key element in any lasting bond, and our goal is for clients and caregivers to know that they can always rely on us to improve the quality of life of everyone we serve.
Some of our Key Services...
It can be hard to be alone, particularly if your physical limitations make it difficult to get out and about. Right at Home workers provide companionship, socialization, and cognitive stimulation. This compassionate, in-home assistance can also make it easier for family members requiring respite time to recharge their batteries. Your personal support worker is a friend you can always count on in your time of need.
Right at Home also acts as a caregiver for seniors, allowing them to retain both their quality of life and their preferred living arrangements. When the demands of daily life become difficult, our care experts are there for tasks such as meal preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, and household organization. We can also assist by running errands (with or for you) and providing transportation, further permitting clients to keep on top of life’s responsibilities.
Our personal support workers understand that it can be a challenge to work with people who have communication problems due to accident or stroke, or display difficult behaviours resulting from conditions like dementia. We use patience and compassion in our interactions with clients, communicating all of the necessary information, while always respecting their dignity.
When the physical effects of aging make the basics of life a challenge, Right at Home can assist you with tasks like ambulatory and wheelchair assistance, getting dressed, and chair or bed transfer/positioning. Let us help to keep you both comfortable and on the move!
Right at Home is also your rehabilitation home care specialist. Our personal support workers can provide expert in-home assistance for those undergoing accident rehabilitation care following motor vehicle collisions or an acquired brain injury.
When you are recovering from an injury or have an ongoing struggle like Osteoporosis, physiotherapy can be a tremendous help. However, it is not always easy to get out of your home and to the provider. Right at Home sends physiotherapists right to your door to help you regain mobility, reduce pain, and improve your general physical health.
Our physios will create a personalized plan that addresses your specific needs. There is no way to turn back the clock, but physiotherapy can help you to live more comfortably and have greater mobility, both of which are keys to overall physical and psychological well-being.
Right at Home’s main mission is to help our clients continue to live for as long as possible in the home of their choice. One of the ways we do this is with the skilled input of an occupational therapist.
Sometimes, when our physical needs change, the environment we live in also requires changes. Our occupational therapists meet with clients and assess their mobility, ability to transfer, and other basics of everyday activity. They then study the home environment and suggest changes where needed. These make it easier for the occupant to perform the basics of daily living in as safe a fashion as possible.
The importance of hygiene cannot be underestimated in the daily responsibility of maintaining a person’s health. Right at Home ensures that clients receive the help they need with bathing and showering, bed baths, grooming, shaving with an electric razor, oral hygiene, and toilet and incontinent care.
Everyone ages and science has yet to figure out a cure. Fortunately, it is possible to postpone the effects of aging with conscientious professional home health care. Right at Home helps clients reach the full potential of where they are at in life through such steps as the development of a light exercise program, meal planning, medication reminders, safety supervision, and cognitive stimulation. Let us work with you to determine what you need to stay active, healthy, and inspired.
A number of Right at Home locations include staff members with medical training, including visiting nurses. That means we can provide a level of expert in-home care that exceeds the capacity of many home care agencies. Our medical professionals can assist with such tasks as medication set-up and administration, I.V.-related therapies, insulin injections, wound care and dressing changes, catheter and ostomy/colostomy care, tube feeding assistance, and skilled hospice support.
