Maintaining a Safe and Secure Environment

We consider client safety to be Job #1.

Grooming and Dressing

Confidence and well-being are enhanced when clients know that their outward appearance meets their personal standards. The staff at Encore Caregivers is serious about ensuring that clients look and feel their best.

Oral Hygiene

Providing regular dental care, including care with any dental apparatus, improves client confidence and comfort.

Bathing and Showering

Our caregivers assist or perform this important function while respecting the client’s dignity and privacy. Safety precautions are an important part of this activity to prevent shower or tub related accidents.

Toileting and/or Incontinence Care

Incontinence can be a source of embarrassment for clients. Often, simple reminders are adequate to maintain client continence. Encore Caregivers’ staff observes the highest degree of professionalism, and performs personal hygiene care discreetly and as often as needed to maintain optimum skin integrity and freshness. 

Ambulation and Transfer 

Encore Caregivers’ staff has demonstrated proficiency in transferring the client from bed, chair or wheelchair in a gentle and competent manner and attends regular in-service training to refine and reinforce accepted techniques.

Medication Reminders 

Serious complications can arise if clients do not take prescribed medications on a timely basis. Encore Caregivers’ staff members can assist and remind clients to self-administer their medications.

Transportation

Encore Caregivers can arrange, accompany, and/or provide transportation to or from doctor appointments, barber or beauty shop appointments, shopping outings or amusement venues. Safety and security is a primary focus for the caregiver during these activities. 

Alzheimer’s/Dementia/Stroke Special Needs

Encore Caregivers staff members are trained to provide care for clients with special needs. Conditions such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, stroke-related dementia and brain injuries present special challenges for these clients. Recognizing these special needs and providing the proper caregiver match is Encore Caregivers’ forté.
