Geriatric Care

All Metro’s Geriatric Care Program was designed to create a safe and comfortable environment for our senior clients so they can reside in the familiar setting of their own homes.  The foundation of the program includes a focus on the following areas: (i) safety and supervision; (ii) personal care; (iii) meal preparation; (iv) light housekeeping; and (v) companionship.

Safety and Supervision
At the start of services, our Nursing Supervisor (a Registered Nurse) will visit the client at home.  The purpose of the visit is to evaluate the client’s condition and develop a plan of care for the caregiver to follow.  In addition, the Nursing Supervisor evaluates the home environment to ensure that the client can be safely cared for at home.  The Nursing Supervisor will contact the appropriate individual to inform them of any potential safety issues.  Our Nursing Supervisors are available to consult with family members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Our Nursing Supervisors will make periodic home visits to ensure that all of the client’s needs are being met in a safe manner.  Nursing Supervisors will also make home visits should there be any changes in the client’s condition or requirements.

Personal Care
Our caregivers assist clients with all activities of daily living.  Caregivers will help the client with many activities including the following: (i) dressing and undressing; (ii) assistance with bathing, including washing and shampooing; (iii) personal hygiene including oral care and shaving; (iv) assistance getting in and out of bed, chairs, wheelchairs, and cars; (v) redirect the client from unsafe activities; (vi) assist with and encourage prescribed exercise (vii) remind client to use cane or walker correctly; (viii) remind the client to take medicine as prescribed; (ix) care of an incontinent client; (x) routine skin care; and (xi) accompany client outside the home for walks and errands.

Meal Preparation
Proper nutrition is an important component of a comprehensive home care plan. Our caregivers work with the client and/or family to plan meals, make grocery lists, shop (if appropriate) and prepare meals that meet the client’s dietary needs.  After meals, the caregiver will wash the dishes and properly store them away.

Light Housekeeping
Our caregivers provide light housekeeping services for our clients.  These housekeeping services include, but are not limited to, the following: (i) sweep, dust and vacuum; (ii) keep kitchen, bathroom and client’s living area clean; (iii) make the bed; (iv) provide laundry and ironing service; (v) change and wash linens; and (vi) take out the garbage. 

Companionship
Our caregivers will engage in conversation, assist in maintaining routines, revive interests and try new activities (if appropriate). Caregivers will help the client stay in touch with friends, family and the community. They can also read to the client from newspapers, magazines, books, mail and e-mail.
