Janine gets it Clean

As always, Linda and I are blessed and grateful to be able to serve the Lethbridge and surrounding community.  It brings us joy to find new and better ways to serve our current clients and be able to help new clients that may need us.

Saying that, we are pleased to Welcome a new member to our team.  Her name is Janine, and she is all about getting it clean!

Janine is available to do things such as:

  • Light house cleaning on a biweekly or as needed basis.
  • Laundry
  • Meal prep

 

Part of our mission at Sunshine Senior Services is to help seniors enjoy living life at home longer by providing assistance in areas where it is needed.   Many seniors are not able to physically do some of these tasks anymore.

Did you know there may be help available to you to get it done for you?

With the Alberta governments Special Needs Assistance for Seniors (SNA) Program, you may be eligible to apply for reimbursement for some of the costs of cleaning, and other house management tasks.

If you are a low income senior and have a medical note from a Health Professional specifying the mobility/health condition that does not allow you to perform these tasks, you can apply for this assistance.  The following image is information from the Alberta Seniors and Housing website that goes into greater detail:

 

 

Please contact us if there is anyway that we can help to answer your questions, or provide this service for you.

 

With Warmth and Respect,

Linda and Heather

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,
Linda and Heather
