Our Senior Support Services begin with a thorough evaluation to identify the client’s social, health, financial, and legal conditions. This also includes an evaluation of the home environment for safety and risk factors.
Thriving at Home will personalize all services to the individual needs for each of our clients. Our goal is to ease the burden of the daily non-medical tasks so that the family is able to spend quality time with their parent. This program is designed to provide a level of comfort to families, knowing the well-being and safety of your parent is our top priority. And, this program is particularly beneficial for long-distance caregivers.
We will provide a plan of action advising the client of the following possible services that are available, empowering them to remain independent in their own home.
Senior support services coordination
It is very difficult and time consuming to navigate through all the services that are available to older adults wanting to age in place.
Thriving at Home has developed relationships with trusted services and can coordinate a wide range of services that specifically fit the individual needs of our clients.
We also offer ongoing coordination and management of these senior services to ensure your loved one is healthy, happy and safe at home. Some of those services include:
For seniors who do not wish to drive at night or can no longer drive we can help connect our client with transportation services to medical appointments, shopping, errands or other trips from home in the Portland area.
Social and Community Services
Social interaction is important for us to stay happy and healthy. We can connect our clients with social activities in and around Portland, including outings that can accommodate your parent’s specific needs, such as wheelchairs, walkers or canes.
The goal is to create a home environment that is not only easier to use, but safer for everyone. Some modifications could be: first floor living re-design, widened doorways, no-step entryways, walk-in tubs and showers with seating, adding handrails and grab bars for safety and support, and installing fixtures such as faucets and doorknobs with levers. Thriving at Home will refer only CAPS (Certification for In Home Aging Services) designated contractors that specialize in home remodeling for aging in place.
Medical Alert Devices help an older adult and their family connect to certified response agents who will identify them and their location and provide emergency services if needed. Medication Management Systems remind, dispense, alert, and post information on compliance, inventory, and other health information that is accessible from any Internet capable device. In addition, New Home Monitoring Systems will let you know whether your parent is sleeping well, eating properly, and taking their medicine.
For the hearing impaired, there are devices that connect to televisions and Bluetooth-enabled smartphones. With this technology, users can set their own headset volume and tone while others around them set the television volume to their preferred level so users can watch their favorite show, listen to music or even take a phone call. Caption phones have also been developed to provide voice over or screen display of what the caller is saying for those that are hearing impaired.
