For many of us, our home is our sanctuary. During a person’s life, especially a senior, we know that certain events and circumstances will challenge their ability to live at home independently, without any assistance. Perhaps you or your loved one is in need of assistance with meal planning, companion care, or transportation services – Alleva Home Care is the perfect senior care solution! Whether you or a loved one requires in-home care for a few hours a day or 24/7 around-the-clock care, Alleva Home Care can provide the right elder care so you or your loved one can maintain independence in the comfort of their own home.
Our Caregivers specialize in assisting clients with non-medical services. They can assist with bathing, dressing, ambulation, and transfers from chair to bed, bed to bath, or from one room to the next. Our staff is also equipped and trained to take vital signs, medication management and reminders, prepare healthy meals, do laundry, provide basic house cleaning, and much more!
We perform an in-depth assessment to determine the appropriate level of care, and create a customized care plan based on your health, domestic and emotional needs, as well as personality requirements.
Trust is earned with good, reliable service and consistency. Therefore, we've removed the risk of trying our services. Use Alleva for as long as YOU like!
As part of our total wellness approach, you can count on us to continue providing solutions as your or your loved ones' needs change.
Caregivers are the heart of our organization. All are licensed, bonded, and insured. All are carefully screened, rigorously Interviewed, and have passed background checks. We value caregivers who exhibit kindness and compassion towards others, demonstrate personal integrity, and have a true commitment to providing assistance to anyone in need. We also employ caregivers with the credentials to perform Nurse-Delegated Care, as they can perform certain routine nursing tasks at home and thereby saving our clients’ time, money, and travel. Staff and caregivers work together with families, as a team, to ensure that every individual need is met. Your loved ones, as well as their homes and personal possessions, are treated with respect.
Everyone benefits when a senior is able to keep their independence as long as possible.
Keepingactive and participating in daily functions help an elder to maintain physical and
mental abilities. Even then, there are steps to take that promote senior home safety.
Senior home safety is increasingly on your mind as your loved ones age. You know that falls
and other injuries are especially harmful to elders. Making basic changes in a senior’s home
increases safety, provides peace of mind, and limits indoor and outdoor risk of injury.
Explore options for investing in senior home care services and devices. These promote safety and independence for as long as possible.
The years are passing by too quickly. You’re not sure of what the future holds. One thing you
do know is your desire to stay at home for as long as possible. Whether you are reading this
for yourself, a spouse, or a senior parent, you are doing so for your family’s best interests.
You and your loved ones are learning that aging in place has challenges as well as
advantages. One of the challenges is juggling responsibilities for homes and the needs of
two, three, or four generations.
At the same time, everyone benefits by preserving an elder’s independence as long as possible.
Being active and taking part in daily functions helps a senior to keep physical and
mental abilities. Older people are grateful and feel respected when others listen to their
concerns about loss and how much they value independence.
Fortunately, we are here to help. An Alleva Home Care representative will consult with you about service options and signs that it is time to plan for home care.
Health changes often indicate the need for home care to help with personal care, appointments, and chores. These changes happen:
Another sign of the need for home care is when you or your loved one loses the ability to fully engage in activities of daily living (ADLs). This occurs because of increased weakness and/or changes in thinking ability. Signs that caregiver assistance is needed include:
You or your beloved family member may show subtle changes, including behavioral and sensory concerns, that bear watching. These are cause for concern because they cause safety risks at home and outdoors. Watch for:
Being informed about changes that can occur with age promotes safety awareness. Age limitations create risks.
Some medications can have side effects that limit safety, such as causing dizziness.
Remember the importance of planning ahead for your whole family’s well-being and peace of mind.
Alleva Home Care is available to help you or your senior family member when special care circumstances arise. These occur when a person has short term needs, generally during a period of recuperation. We work with you to select a care option that promotes safety and comfort during recovery. These scenarios offer an idea of some special care circumstances.
Post-operative Home Care
A frequent example of post-operative care is following joint replacement surgery. Although a senior is up and moving before hospital discharge, special care is needed for patients who immediately return home. There are appointments to keep, exercise routines, and support needed with hygiene and dressing. Assuming the responsibility for all of these can be stressful and fatiguing for a spouse or family caregiver. Home care promotes everyone’s well-being, providing help when most needed.
Cancer Treatment Home Care
Most of us know someone who is or has experienced the side effects of cancer treatment. It is even a challenge knowing exactly what to expect after a chemo appointment. Feeling ill or living with extreme weakness interferes with life quality and daily routines. Waves of nausea and headaches limit one’s ability to work or prepare a simple meal. Driving becomes a hazard for some who are in treatment. Having home care support at these times means the world to your loved one.
Recovery from an Episode of Illness
Have you ever had pneumonia, influenza, or a never-ending gastro-intestinal infection? One of these, or an extended bout of bronchitis, leaves a senior exhausted for days or weeks. A continuing episode of illness can weaken one’s immune system, requiring special care and attention to regain health. This is another time when home care services are available to help you or a loved one during recuperation.
Respite for Caregivers
Are you the family member with primary care responsibility for a senior parent? If so, you know how important it is to have time away from caregiving. It is good for your parents, too! Whether you wish to have an afternoon outing with a friend, or holiday time with your spouse, Alleva Home Care is here to support your special plans.
Alleva Home Care has service options that offer extra help during these or other special circumstances. Whether you choose hourly care, short-term live-in care, or one of our other choices, we are here to support you with quality home care.
We were really happy to work with your company! We still recommend you to all of our friends who need help. My family and I thank you for all of your great help! God bless you always.
Farideh K. Client's Spouse
I was very happy to know that I could save money by hiring a private caregiver, but with the assurance that Alleva would always be there to help me if I needed help with staffing or handling any changes to my Dad's condition. Their staff has been terrific!
Stephen B. Client's Son
Thank you again for helping with care for my mom while I was away on a much-needed vacation!
Eva C. Client's Daughter
I was very impressed with the professionalism, cheerfulness and hard work I received from my caregiver following my operation. She advocated for me when an infection developed so that I could get right in to see a doctor. From multiple doctor appointments, housework, daily shopping, she helped with everything, even an outing on a sunny day to raise my spirits!
Frank B. Client
The care I received was excellent! Being stubborn, I thought I could care for myself after my surgery -- was I wrong! You and your caregiver were so helpful, compassionate and professional. My caregiver, Annie, kept me safe, monitored my medications, and worked to keep me comfortable. She helped me wrap my dressings when I could not do it myself. Annie was like a good friend. I don’t know what I would have done without your help.
Clara P. Client
Our family thanks you for the wonderful care given our mother. The special attention to detail was superb.
Robert P. Client's Son
It took my family a long time to select the right agency. We had our reservations at first because Alleva wasn't a part of a well-known franchise, but those reservations immediately dissipated as soon as we saw the professional and compassionate care that was provided to my Dad. The folks at Alleva can be reached during all hours of the day and night, and work closely to ensure ongoing quality of care.
Sylvia B. Client's Daughter
Alleva Home Care brought great comfort to my father during his last days. It was very difficult for us to be with him 24 hours a day, so that’s when we decided to call Alleva Home Care. After meeting Carol, we immediately knew that Dad would be in capable hands – and we were right. The care, supervision, and coordination of services were excellent.
Thomas K. Client's Son
I’ll be honest, I’m very particular about the care I require, and it was difficult for me to stay with one single caregiver -- they couldn’t handle the work. Luckily, Alleva Home Care came to the rescue and set me up with a perfect caregiver. No task was too big for her, and she approached her duties with such dedication and compassion. If it wasn’t for Cindy, I don’t know what I would do.
Linda R. Client
On a day when I was feeling especially lonely for Mike, a beautiful and fragrant bouquet of flowers came to my door. I was reminded how very special it is to have wonderful friends and I thank you for being in my life as you were for Mike.
Daisy I. Client's Spouse
I thank God for you taking care of my mother during her illness. The love the girls gave her was touching, and I appreciate everything you've done from the bottom of my heart. Please stay in touch.
Karl L. Client's Son
Alleva Home Care is a life saver for me. The fact that I can instantly book a qualified, pre-screened caregiver saves me a lot of time and energy. Thank you!
Shara M. Client's Daughter
I would like to offer my most sincere gratitude to Alleva Home Care for the outstanding service they provided my Mother during her sickness. Your staff is dedicated, kind and very, very competent.
Jackie S. Client's Daughter
Thank you so much for assigning Margaret to care for our mother. My mother has been so alert and active as she was with Margaret. She gave her such great care. We knew Mom was in wonderful hands. The director of the facility was also greatly impressed with her. You have a gem in Margaret! Thanks again.
