Providing Companion Services for Seniors

We have being receiving a lot of calls lately, to provide companion services for individuals that need a bit of extra support when family can’t always be available.

We love to be able to serve families and help in this capacity.

With society the way it is, children of aging parents are often in a position where our parents (or loved ones) need extra help on the short term managing their day to day needs. We (the children) are not always able to manage the time required to provide this. Careers, life commitments, and our own children keep us from having as much time as we would like to be able to devote to helping our loved ones. It can be very stressful to try and manage all of our own commitments (that are often over taxing us already), as well as to provide adequate care for aging parents.

It is important to you to take care of your parents, and you likely feel a great pull and sense of responsibility toward making this happen.

This is where Sunshine Senior Services can help. We can provide that extra set of helping hands that you need to give you some peace of mind that your parents are being cared for.

Recently we have been working with families of clients that are in hospital or care facilities such as palliative care. We have clients who’s families live out of town, often out of province and are unable to be with them daily.

These clients have needed extra support and companionship to ensure they are eating and receiving adequate nutrition. Our team has been going in to help feed these sweet ladies, and spend time visiting and letting them know they are cared for on a daily basis. Unfortunately the nursing staff in these facilities are trying to tend to the medical needs of so many patients at one time they are not able to provide the one to one support that your loved one needs.

We come in and provide professional, compassionate care for your loved one. Our team provides families with peace of mind in knowing that their loved one is being care for on a daily basis when they can’t be with them. In many cases, we are also an advocate and liaison for your loved one on your behalf communicating needs to facility staff. We send family members daily updates so you are always aware of what is happening.

If you are in need of such support, please get in touch with Linda or Heather to discuss how we can help your family.

With Warmth and Respect,

Summer is a Time for Holidays and for Family

Isn’t summer the best time for making family memories?

 

Going on vacation, going camping, or to the lake with family and friends.  It is also such an important time to make those good memories with your own children.  But it can be difficult when you are in that “sandwich generation” where you are caring for both the needs of your children and your parents.

Sometimes it is hard to get away when you worry about your parents at home.  Especially if you are looking after many of their care needs for things like grocery shopping, errands, doctors appointments or just stopping by to visit with them and make sure everything is okay.

Door Through Door Service

We can help you with that.

We have several clients that are wanting to do just that, head out of town on vacation.  We are able to schedule times to stop by and check on your parents,  pick up groceries, run errands or whatever they need.

Let Sunshine Senior Services be an added support for you when occasionally you are not able to manage all of the care needs for your parents.  We can set up something that is exactly suited to meet your parents and your needs.  We are very flexible in the service delivery options that are available to you.

ServicesIn addition to being a “senior driving service” Sunshine Senior Services can provide companionship, and check-ins to help you ensure that your parents needs are being met.

Give us a call today.

 

With Warmth and Respect,

Linda and Heather
