Services and Offerings
As noted above, Golden Heart Senior Care offers a full range of home care services, and its companion care services include meal preparation, “deep cleaning” of the household, help with grooming and hygiene, transportation, and social support, along with other offerings. The company also offers respite care for family caregivers who need a break.
Golden Heart also offers help for seniors with more complex care needs, including those with Alzheimer’s and other neurological impairments, chronic diseases such as arthritis, COPD, and MS, and a variety of other serious conditions, making them a good choice for those needing higher level care at home.
Golden Heart Home Safe
This program involves Golden Heart employees coming into the home, making an assessment of the safety risks there, and—if they’re providing care—making an action plan to eliminate common threats to safety in the home by incorporating home safety interventions into the plan of care. The Home Safe program also provides advice on overall safety practices, and can help with installation of medical alert systems.
Household Management Assistance
Many home care agencies offer organizational help, but Golden Heart offers a full range of services aimed at helping seniors stay on top of all the complexities of managing a household. Golden Heart caregivers can help with bill paying, periodic and seasonal tasks, inventory control for food and medicine, pet care, and organizing social events and celebrations.
Golden Heart also offers a unique approach to helping seniors succeed in areas beyond the home. Their senior advocacy program provides accompaniment to medical appointments and close coordination with medical providers. In addition, they will also provide lifestyle support by helping clients socialize, and look out for signs of confidence scams and senior abuse.
Senior Housing Consultation
For those who have decided to move out of their homes into assisted living or other senior housing arrangements, Golden Heart provides a needs assessment and can advise on the best local housing options, going so far as to tour facilities with clients and follow up to make sure the living arrangements are satisfactory. Since Golden Heart receives payment for this service from their pre-screened housing providers, their consultations are offered free of charge.
