2023 | Edition 4
We hope your holiday season is off to a good start. We recently enjoyed hosting our bi-annual caregiver meetings in which all caregivers come into the office to review company updates and news. It’s always great to see everyone!
We are also excited to begin offering several new services, which we will spend this newsletter reviewing. If you are interested in utilizing or learning more about any of the services covered, please call the office. We would love to discuss these new ways of serving you (and possibly learn of other needs that we might be able to meet).
We wish everyone a happy and healthy holiday season!
Yours in Service,
Gretchen & Ryan Whittington
Introducing SHC Supportive Services
Sometimes, needs arise that fall outside the realm of our typical caregiver services. To meet those needs, we’re excited to introduce our new SHC Supportive Services designed to assist in unique areas of need.
These are membership services to help individuals thrive at home. Current support services being offered include:
Medication & Case Management
Medication management is designed to reduce adverse reactions and hospitalization by ensuring the right medicines are taken at the right times. This Includes reviewing and setting up medications, monitoring vital signs, reordering medications as needed, and contacting your doctor if medical concerns arise.
Professional Personal Assistant
Retirement does not always mean slowing down. A professional personal assistant can help sort sensitive mail, organize your calendar, or plan special events or trips.
In-Home Personal Training & Healthy Habits Coach
An in-home coach who specializes in working at your level can help you maintain mobility and strength, and achieve your goals.
Housing Placement Consultation
There may come a time when you consider moving from your home. Our professionals are available to recommend options and arrange tours based on your unique needs.
In-Home Tech Support – “The Basics”
Staying connected, and adjusting to changing technology, is difficult at any age. Our tech support can help set up email accounts, manage passwords, configure and trouble shoot wi-fi connections, help with steaming and television support (including figuring out confusing TV remotes!), and other areas in the technology realm.
Home Organizing, Downsizing & Decluttering
Improve your living space, develop a plan, and stay motivated with a positive coach. Organizing and downsizing can be overwhelming. We can help identify heirlooms to be passed along to family members, as well as arrange for items to be donated, recycled or thrown away. Improve safety and peace of mind through a clean living space.
Peace of Mind Monthly Membership
This is designed for independent individuals who are not seeking traditional in-home personal care services, but may need occasional engagement from a professional. Scheduled monthly consultation helps provide peace of mind and proactively solve concerns before they turn into bigger issues.
If you are interested in learning more about any of these new services, please call the office. We’d love to provide more information and discuss how we may be able to further benefit you!
