Many of the elderly's family members have had to move away from the community to find jobs and are not able to assist, but still want to make sure that mom or dad are being looked after. Unlike years ago, most of us do not really know our neighbors and do not want to burden them for even the smallest things. This is where Earth Angels helps to fill the gap. Family members can have peace of mind knowing that Earth Angels will be there, when they are not able to be. We are the eyes and ears for the family members. We can provide healthy meals, companionship, housekeeping, medication monitoring and transportation plus many other services.
Now that the senior population is growing (along with waiting lists) more and more seniors are looking for affordable and viable ways to remain in the comfort of their own homes, and have found this through the Earth Angels agency. We also provide care in hospitals or for anyone returning home from an operation. Some people just need a little assistance until they are back on their feet again. We also have developed a great rapport with the long term care facilities in the communities and are providing additional care for their clients.
To maintain independence, some clients may only need our services 3 hours a day once or a few days a week, while others may need companion sitters for overnights, or complete 24 hour care. Our clients determine the process of care. They have the choice when they want to eat, when they go to bed, or when they get out of bed. We work on their schedule. Our services are based entirely on our client's needs.
The name Earth Angels was chosen because it truly describes the type of caregivers that we employ with our agency. We realize that you or your loved one is counting on us to make the right choices and we use every avenue available to make sure we are making the best decisions when it comes to hiring our caregivers. All Earth Angels caregivers are thoroughly screened, bonded, insured, trained and supervised. We would never hire anyone that we felt we could not entrust with the care of our own loved ones. We also have on staff a Registered Nurse, as well as a Registered Nutritional Consultant, to answer any questions pertaining to our client's dietary and nutritional requirements.
