Who We Care For
When facing illness or disease, decisions should be made as to what services, be it professional or otherwise, are needed. Some older persons may prefer to “Age in Place”- remaining in their own homes where familiarity, routines and memories can create a better structure and quality of life. AZA’s Caregivers provide comfort and safety at home by performing the simplest of needs such as food preparation, laundry and medication cuing to the more challenging duties of helping with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), transfers, hoyers and more complex needs.
For others, who may need or want to be moved to a residential facility, AZA’s Caregivers can likewise perform the same services. ADLs, transfers, assistance with eating and bathing and allowing them as much independence as desired assuming their safety and security remain intact.
Regardless of the environment, our Caregivers provide mental stimulation and socialization as needed, with the attempt to prevent our Clients from feeling isolated or disheartened.
AZA’s Caregivers not only perform the essentials of caregiving, they go beyond the essential in proactively understanding how to observe, redirect and nurture client behavior. They also have the confidence of Care Managed supervision on a regular basis.
Our staff of Caregivers can help chronically ill and disabled patients with continuous long-term care – or substitute for family or friend caregivers who are seeking a brief respite. We can also provide help on a short-term basis for those who are recuperating from an illness or surgery, as well as hospice services.
AZA Caregivers attend to the needs of Alzheimer’s patients and those suffering from related dementias and mental illness. They can help Clients avoid the lack of dignity often associated with more institutional environments or when caring for them in their own homes. Among those we help are people with diabetes, stroke and cardiac disease, cancer patients and those with neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. And, AZA can also lend a helping hand to those who are simply slowing down, feeling lonely or have recently suffered a loss.
Whatever the situation or need is, If AZA cannot help, we will likely be familiar with resources that can.
