Stories From Home

Every day, our home care heroes make a difference in the lives of patients and clients. Each one is a story waiting to be told. We would like to share some of those stories. They are about real people who may be recovering from an illness or injury, have a chronic illness such as heart failure or diabetes or maybe they just need a little extra help at home so they can remain independent. The stories are also about the very special people, our Care Professionals, who provide the caring help and support that makes a difference in the lives of our clients and their families. We’re glad to share just a few of our “Stories from Home.”

The Right Match

As is the case with most patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Mr. Stein’s physical condition has slowly deteriorated over time. Now in his late fifties, he finds it difficult to stand for extended periods of time, or perform certain household tasks. As his MS has advanced, Mr. Stein has been increasingly reliant on the kind of help traditionally associated with those of a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).

Maintaining Independence

Most of us take our ability to do everyday things – from driving to the grocery store to picking up around the house – for granted. But what happens when you can no longer do those simple things? And when there’s no one around to help?

"Are they ok at home?"

At Interim HealthCare, we know what to look for when it comes to whether a loved one can remain safe and independent in their own home. This simple and free quiz can help guide you when making that important decision.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.

Home Fall Prevention for Older Adults

Each year, thousands of older Americans fall at home. Many of them are seriously injured, and some are disabled. Falls are often due to hazards that are easy to overlook but many times they are easy to fix. In response to escalating concerns related to falls and fall related injuries among the aging population, Interim HealthCare has launched an interactive web program that helps people identify hazards in their home and shows them ways to help prevent falling.
