As a founder and owner of Interactive Care Agency, I bring to the agency my thirteen years of experience working in the medical field. I have worked in all areas in the hospital setting including rehabilitation and in the mental health setting. In all my years working with clients, I have always enjoyed taking care of the difficult and not so difficult ones. It has always brought me great satisfaction in taking care of someone that needs tender loving care and to take away that loneliness through companionship. My staff equally possesses the attributes and dreams that I have envisioned in taking care of clients that are in need. My agency believes with the cooperation of client’s family members and friends we can meet each and everyone’s needs, goals and desires.
The purpose of Interactive Care Agency is to meet the needs of seniors and to improve and promote their quality of care and independence. We are a family based agency where we just do not interact with our clients but also include others that are essential to promote optimal results. We plan, and are flexible to work with friends and families and around our client’s schedules. Our agency provides professional staff that is experienced in areas of activities of daily living, cognition, and psychosocial.
Goals of our agency
The goal of our agency is to provide assistance or help in areas of activities of daily living (ADL’s) and to minimize or avoid a greater loss to family members or friends due to injuries. Turning and lifting without the proper technique will cause injuries over a period of time. Furthermore, reducing stress from loved ones by taking a week or two off could be a tremendous help. Some of the areas that our agency could be a tremendous help or assistance will be the ADL’s which are grooming, bathing/showering, toilet hygiene, dressing, feeding and eating, etc. Another goal is that we focus on client safety and fall prevention. By having someone with them this can greatly reduce falls and other safety issues we can reduce the amount of hospital visits due to falls or even broken bones that may cause further complications. We assist with ADL’s – toilet hygiene, dressing, grooming, and bathing/showering, feeding, and eating, oral hygiene. Light home management tasks such as cleaning, meal preparation, laundry, and vacuuming.
