Senior Care

(3)
I have 20 plus years of experience caring for individuals of all ages. I'm a kind, compassionate caregiver with a personality that does not ruffle easily. Dependable and reliable, you can be assured that your loved one will truly be cared for while you are gone. I am a certified medical assistant and have completed 4 years of nursing school. I have 2 years experience working in hospital, rehab, and extended care. I also have home health care experience. I am proficient, professional, and conscientious with ostemy, drains, and other personal care and hygiene issues. I have worked with Alzheimer's/dementia, diabetes, stroke, post surgery, limited mobility, mobility recovery, MS, thyroid, seizures, open and closed head trauma, and much more. I am willing to transport to and sit in on medical appointments to help with continuity of care. I'm honest and trustworthy, a non-smoker, a good cook, a smiling face, and a friendly spirit. Let's talk about your care needs!

Lisa is wonderful! I hired her from my couch in South Carolina to help with my mother who is house bound. Lisa went above and beyond- nor only did she help make sure her health issues were addressed but she cleaned and helped my mother with doctor's appointments and important issues like her phone not working. Lisa would check in on her when I couldn't get ahold of my mom by phone. I felt much more at ease knowing that someone like Lisa was close by to assist with my mom. She even snapped pics of mom to forward to me so I could actually see how she was doing. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants quality care for someone they love.

FAQs for finding senior care

What are my senior care options?

When it comes to creating a care plan for an elder loved one, there are different alternatives to explore depending on the wishes of the senior and their family, and the level of care needed. Some of the options are:

  • In-home senior care is a great option for seniors who want to stay at home and just need a companion for daily activities.
  • Nursing assistants can provide medical assistance for seniors in the comfort of their own home.
  • Dementia care is a suitable choice for elders with Alzheimer's or dementia who need specialized care at home.
  • Senior transportation is an option for finding caregivers who can drive your loved ones as needed for errands or doctor appointments.
  • Assisted living facilities are helpful when it's more convenient to move the senior person into a monitored residence where they can receive assistance with their daily activities and socialize with other residents.
  • Nursing homes can provide long-term medical and personal care for an elder loved one who can't be cared for at home.
  • How much does in-home senior care cost?
    The average senior care rate charged by caregivers on Care.com as of February, 2021 is $14.75 per hour. This rate may vary depending on the services required when caring for the elderly at home. The hourly rate will also be impacted by your location, the caregiver's years of experience, level of education, and if they have any credentials or nursing degrees.
    Are senior care providers background checked?
    Yes, senior care providers on Care.com are asked to complete an annual background check called a CareCheck. Senior care providers who complete this background check will have a badge on their profile displaying the date it was run. While CareCheck is a good start, we strongly recommend that you follow some additional steps for hiring a caregiver safely, which include interviewing candidates, checking references, and running your own background check. Visit our Safety Center to learn more.
    What services are included for senior care at home?
    Besides companionship, most in-home caregivers for seniors can help with their daily activities, such as getting around the house safely, meal prep, light housekeeping, and medication reminders, as well as taking them for walks and driving them to medical appointments or errands. In addition to general home help for seniors, there are also caregivers who can assist with bathing, dressing, feeding, overnight watch, and dementia care.
    How can I find an in-home senior care provider?
    After creating an account, you will have the option to either post a job that can be seen by our large pool of senior caregivers, or you can also search caregivers from our platform, based on years of experience, hourly rate, availability, distance from your location, etc. After you have selected your candidates, you can schedule interviews, check references, request additional background checks, and hire the caregiver who best meets your needs.
