Caregiver for your loved ones in the comfort of their own house in Oakland California

We provide home care assistance for the elderly. With the elderly living in their golden years, many of them will find it difficult to care for themselves. Furthermore, with their loved ones being extremely busy, they will find it difficult to give proper care to their elderly family members. These are considerations that we have in mind. We understand and appreciate the various facets of being in such situations. As such, we provide high-quality home care assistance services to the elderly, ensuring that they are well taken care of while giving family members the freedom to pursue economic advancements.

Senior Care Berkeley

We take pride in providing high-quality assistance care services to the elderly. Moreover, whilst providing our services, we appreciate the fact that many of the elderly love to have some sense of independence.

Elderly Care

As such, our caregivers strive to strike a balance between helping the elderly and giving them a sense of independence in doing tasks such as bathing, dressing and even cooking. Our caregivers are trained and experienced in providing care assistance services to a wide variety of seniors including:

Alzheimer’s Care

Unfortunately, some seniors suffer from this disorder. The progressive disorder causes them to lose their ability to comprehend things that they once did. This takes a toll on the patient as well as their families, as the individuals suffering from this disorder eventually loses their ability even recognize their family members. We understand the toll that this progressive disorder can cause to any family. We appreciate the difficulties involved and the complexity the disorder brings with regards to everyday activities. With this in mind, we are always at hand to help giving care to such elderlies. Our caregivers will be at hand to constantly supervise the seniors. Importantly, they will provide a wide range of activities including memory games for the senior to indulge in.

Parkinson’s Care

When a senior suffers from Parkinson’s disease, he or she will find moving around to be a daunting task. The same thing applies when it comes to using their hands. As such, they will not have the ability to take care of themselves in a normal way and, therefore, will find it difficult to cook, wash, eat meals, or even take a bath. Our caregivers offer high-quality assistance and care services for patients suffering from this ailment, improving their living conditions.

Dementia Care

With our dementia care services, our caregivers will keep an eye on the seniors in our care making sure that they do not wander off and get hurt. Importantly, they help in taking care of the seniors as well as helping with tasks such as housekeeping, bathing, and other tasks. In our facilities, you can be certain that your loved one will receive the best care possible.

Stroke Victim Care

If you have an elderly family who recently suffered from a stroke, you will appreciate that they need specialized care to recover well. While the road to recovery will be hard and challenging, with the best care assistance, we will help your family member work his or her way to improvements.

Cancer Care

As we age, we become more susceptible to cancer. As such, some elderlies in our country are diagnosed with different forms of cancer. Our caregivers are always trained, willing, ready to provide high-quality personalized care services to senior cancer patients. They will not only take them to different appointments but also help them keep track and take their medication.

About Our Caregivers

Our caregivers are compassionate, caring, hardworking, and understanding professionals. Importantly, they are passionate about taking care of our elderly. Our caregivers are trained professionals who are also experienced in a wide variety of services. They can work with seniors, providing assistance care in handling certain tasks. Furthermore, they can also work with elderly patients suffering from certain ailments such as cancer, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. You can rest assured that your elderly loved one is good hands when he or she is under our care, regardless of the situation they are in.
