Beacon Homecare Services

Elder Care and Caregiver Support in Aurora, Colorado

At Beacon Homecare we offer a wide variety of services to people who are in need of our assistance. All of our patients receive a consultation from us and sign a contract detailing exactly what is required of our caregivers. Many of our care providers are bi-lingual or multi-lingual which allows us greater scope. Most of our elderly patients need help with bathing, dressing, and general hygiene issues. They also require assistance with planning and preparing meals and with light housekeeping tasks such as vacuuming, dusting, changing the beds, and cleaning the bathrooms.

We also provide laundry services and we will always make sure your loved one has a clean bed every night. Medication reminders and transportation to a doctor’s surgery are valuable services many older people need. We offer respite care for family caregivers to allow them to take a break or run errands. And one of the most important aspects of our job is the companionship and socialization we offer elderly people who often live alone.

Bathing

Bathing

We find that personal hygiene for all our patients helps them enormously. We believe it cleanses the body and soothes the mind. Our home caregivers will assist your loved ones with bathing, which makes them feel clean and refreshed, and with washing, however many times a day it is required.

Dressing

For many elderly people, getting dressed in the morning and for other occasions such as going out for a walk, can be difficult. The caregivers at Beacon Homecare will provide all the help needed to pick out suitable clothing and help the individuals get dressed if necessary. Fresh clothing and other forms of personal care can help seniors feel better and more confident.

Light Housekeeping

Light Housekeeping

At Beacon Homecare we are happy to undertake a variety of light housekeeping tasks for our patients, including vacuuming, dusting, mopping, changing the beds and cleaning the bathrooms. We will also keep the living space that they use most often clean and tidy, and assist them with any cleaning if they want. We will always ask the client how they like the housekeeping done and put together a schedule.

Meal Planning

Our caregivers will make meals for all the patients they are looking after, as well as prepare the food and do the grocery shopping. We always assist with menu planning by making a list of the food they like or don’t like, or even meals they would like to try but never have. That way we can help them plan a proper weekly menu and shop accordingly.

Meal Preparation

Meal Preparation

As a part of our home care meal service we prepare balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner meals with the right portion sizes for good health. It is important for elderly people that they eat good, nourishing food that agrees with them and they feel comfortable eating. Most do not have large appetites and portion control is an important element in their meal times.

Companionship and Socialization

We always encourage elderly people living alone to go out for a walk with our caregivers or to attend some sort of social activity. Light exercise such as a short walk promotes good health and it helps to have a family member there too. As part of our companionship service we encourage participation in games and activities to keep them stimulated.

Socialization
Laundry Services

Laundry Services

At Beacon Homecare we firmly believe that a clean and neat personal appearance is very important for your loved one. Our laundry service includes laundry loads, folding and ironing, and the changing of linens and bed linens. Our caregivers will always make sure that your loved one has a clean bed every night.

Medication Reminders

We do not distribute medication to our clients. That is not part of our service. However, we will remind them to take medication that has been prescribed to them by the doctor. Elderly clients can sometimes be forgetful so what we do is simply give them a gentle reminder, according to what the doctor has prescribed.

Medication Reminders
Respite Care for Families

Respite Care for Families

If you are a family member looking after an elderly relative, it can often be a stressful and difficult task. So why not take advantage of the respite care service we offer, even if it is just to enable you to take a break or run an errand? We offer skilled and personal respite care so there is no need to worry. And the less stressed you are, the better a family caregiver you will be.

Appointment Transportation

Getting to and from doctors’ appointments can sometimes be problematic for elderly people. At Beacon Homecare we provide transportation to surgeries and we always stress that mileage is not an issue. We will go wherever the patient needs to go. Part of our job is to make sure your loved one gets transported to and from their doctors’ appointments safely and on time.
