Caring for Your Aging Parents in Their Own Boynton Beach Home.
Home Care Aides for Boynton Beach
In the last few years, Boynton Beach has grown into a huge retirement destination in the heart of Palm Beach county. Although not actually on the beach it boasts many exquisite Senior Communities on its western side. Huge homes, golf courses and clubhouses are hallmarks for active living retirees. Members of this aging population may need a bit of extra help, which is why Paradise Home Health Care matches fully screened home care aides with Boynton Beach seniors.
Where there are seniors, the services tend to follow. Bethesda Hospital has now opened in the west to compliment the longstanding main hospital. JFK Medical Center is also nearby. They have the beautiful Mandel JCC which has an intriguing Adult Education program. The Boynton Beach Senior Center is usually hopping with activities and programming. The Boynton Beach YMCA offers the Surf & Turf exercise program ( Mon/Wed/Fri 10:00 a.m. Tues/Thurs. at the JCC)) through the South Palm Beach County Chapter of the National Parkinson Foundation. Coinciding with the exercises are Caregiver Support Groups on Mondays at 10:00 a.m. facilitated by Paradise Home Health Care’s Social Worker.
Paradise Home Health Care matches caregivers, both male and female with folks needing care with bathing, dressing, walking and other care needs. Additionally, all caregivers drive, cook and will keep the home tidy and safe. Aides live in the area and are familiar with the medical offices, shopping centers and restaurants which make the city so appealing.
Our commitment to you is “to be with you every step of the way”. Whether your loved one needs help with physical care or has dementia, trained, certified, screened and experienced caregivers will assist your parent with both compassion and ability. Our professional expertise, whether a Social Worker or Licensed nurse are at your service to support you and your family through the medical maze, Long Term Care Insurance forms and Governmental or community benefits and resources.
Short term help when returning home from the hospital or a Rehab stay due to an illness or surgery (hip or knee fracture or replacements) is one area of our service. Longer term and Live In care is available to folks whose specific medical condition is worsening as the disease progresses (Demetria, Alzheimer’s M.S. and Parkinson Disease). It is your choice as to your schedule and a Social Worker will meet with you and your family to help create a sensible Care Plan. Often, people will start with more hours or days and as their health improves and strength returns, they reduce the schedule. All schedules are flexible and designed by you.
We are particularly concerned with safety – preventing falls, medication compliance, and encouraging walking/ exercise.. Until you or your loved one is feeling stronger and back on their feet, a home care aide will assist you as needed with hygiene and grooming and tend to household chores. They will also drive and accompany you to doctor appointments and social outings.
Hiring in-home help for yourself, or your older, senior parents and other loved ones is a big step. We understand it is difficult to have someone new come into where you live. Getting the “match” right the first time is our goal. To do this, we listen to your requests and concerns and we ask many questions. The magic begins with the best match and it is magical how quickly an aide/caregiver becomes an appreciate part of your health care team.
Believing strongly in “quality of life” for our Boomers, aging adults and elder seniors, PHHC consistently offers educational programming throughout Boynton Beach. Our popular “Grandma Online” series is presented at the Boynton Beach Senior Center and the Jewish Community Center as well as several Retirement communities; Leisureville, Palm Chase, Valencia Lakes. “Health Forums” and discussion groups are offered at Temple Torah Emet, Shaarei Shalom and Beit Tikva. Our Social Worker facilitates a Discharge Group at the Rehab Center in Barrington Terrace.
As you can see, we approach home care in a holistic way. Education, information and referrals are as much a part of “Elder Care” as is introducing a caregiver into the home. We encourage social activity along with exercise and safety as part of our services and care for the personal well-being of all clients and their families.
