Home is Where the Heart Is

The vast majority of today’s healthcare consumers, particularly seniors, want to stay in their home as they age, and why not? Living in the comfort of your own home can make a huge difference to your quality of life, but sometimes independence needs a helping hand. We know how important it is to be in a comfortable, familiar environment, and that’s where our in-home personal care and support services (PCSS) come in.

Personal Care & Support Services in Mercer County

 

Live with Dignity, Purpose and Self-Worth

It makes perfect sense that you or your aging loved one would rather remain in familiar surroundings than move to assisted living or a skilled nursing facility. Home is where the heart thrives and the place your loved one will feel most in control of their destiny.

Interim HealthCare of Duluth provides personal care and support services to fill the gaps in whatever way each patient needs, creating a whole-person, individualized plan that helps them lead a more empowered and enriched life. Our paraprofessionals and clinicians are trained, skilled, competent and personable. Committed to providing the best possible level of care, they will open the way for your loved one to lead a more joyous and engaged existence at home.

And for your family?

No more worrying about a loved one’s safety, about whether they’re eating right (or at all), or about whether they’re taking their medications on time. With our in-home services, we can provide the boost they need to be independent, safe and healthy.

So What’s the Difference Between Personal Care and Support Services?

Personal care typically addresses activities of daily living, or ADLs, that are essential for independent living. This includes:

  • Personal hygiene (bathing, grooming and oral care)
  • Dressing
  • Eating
  • Toileting and continence
  • Transferring and mobility (standing, sitting, getting in and out of bed or the car)

Support services take care further, providing assistance with tasks such as:

  • Light housework
  • Laundry
  • Shopping
  • Transportation to the doctor’s (or the beauty salon)
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Writing letters or making appointments
  • Reminding Mom when to take her medications

Valuing Companionship

Do you have a pet? No wonder you want to remain at home! Our compassionate, friendly team is happy to lend a hand with pet care, or better still, offer some often-needed human companionship and conversation. Locally owned and operated, we have a vested interest in serving the community we love, employing qualified professionals who live amongst us. 

Help for Family Caregivers

Spouses and adult children are usually the first to step in and help their loved one with certain tasks. You do it from the heart, but it can wear you down. In-home personal care and supportive services can provide respite from looking after a loved one, so you can recharge your inner strength and be your best self to the person who needs you most right now.

  • 24/7 Support Available
  • Meal Prep and Light Chores
  • Help Bathing and Grooming
  • Medication Reminders
  • Transportation
  • Companionship
