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 Safe At Home?  Take our Quiz"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.

The Interim Health Care team provided home care services for my father. Dad had moderate dementia and the Interim caregivers visited each morning to be sure he had taken his medications, had clean clothes, and completed his basic personal hygiene.  

 

The Interim team may have saved my Dad's life at one point. A nurse on the team notified us when Dad took ill and needed hospitalization. Without daily monitoring, Dad may not have received the care he needed in time. After a four-day hospital stay, our family asked Interim to provide extra daily visits until Dad had recovered. The Interim team's knowledge and communication to us was especially helpful before, during, and after this time. It is comforting to know that someone was looking out for Dad on a daily basis.

 

The Interim caregivers provided excellent notes and other feedback so we knew how Dad was doing between our family visits. They also cared about Dad as a person, which meant a lot.  I would recommend Interim to any other family seeking an individually tailored senior home care solution for an elder parent's needs.
