Your 79-year old mother is living alone and lately you’ve become concerned. She called you the other morning and asked how you how to make coffee. She’s been making coffee for her entire adult life.
Your wife’s 65-year old uncle, who has always been outgoing, now seems to be afraid to go anywhere.
Your 82-year old neighbor, a retired bookkeeper, was always so proud that she balanced her check book out to the penny. Now she’s asking for your help.
What is going on?
These are just a few of the signs that someone you know or love may be developing Alzheimer’s.
Luxe Caregivers are Trained to Care for Alzheimer’s Clients
We are a professional caregiving agency that brings trained caregivers into your residence to help care for your needs and to give your family a better sense of peace of mind.
We are licensed by the California Department of Public Health, certified by the California Association of Health Services at Home (CAHSAH), certified and approved by Medicare, approved by the California Department of Social Services, accredited by the Joint Commission and are fully bonded. To make it easier for our clients we have also created partnership with insurers such as Blue Shield of California, HealthNet, SCAN Health Plan, United Healthcare and Aetna. Luxe also has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
We employ only trained personnel. Yes, we did say “employ.” Our dedicated in-home caregivers are not independent contractors. We hire thoroughly vetted caregivers, train them specific to the care you need, and provide supervision and check-in systems to make certain everyone is on the same page. That includes what time they arrive at your home, what they do while they are there and what time they leave.
We make it a point to match our employees with your family member both in personality and in their skills set. We have caregivers who have been specially trained in working with various types of dementia, including Alzheimer’s. Although our caregivers are non-medical personnel, they often observe behaviors that can point toward debilitating conditions.
Working with individuals who have a form of dementia is difficult in the best of circumstances. It takes a lot of patience, an understanding of their perspective of the world, and being focused on helping them live as independently as possible.
When Luxe Homecare comes to your Mom’s, Dad’s or Aunt Mary’s home we can provide a variety of services depending on your loved one’s needs. They include:
- Help with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring, continence
- Bathing and hygiene assistance
- Meal planning and preparation
- Diet monitoring
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- Medication reminders
- Driving or escorting to appointments, errands or shopping
Once you contact us we will set up an evaluation of your loved one so that we all can better understand their capabilities, wants and needs. Luxe honors these men and women who have fallen victim to dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease every day we are with them, but we wanted to make a special point of it as June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.
We provide this care and more in the following Southern California Communities: Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Long Beach, Malibu, Newport Beach, Pacific Palisades, Riverside and Santa Monica.
