DISABILITIES AND SPECIAL NEEDS CARE

Even the most loving and dedicated family caregivers need a break to rest and recharge—whether it’s for a few hours, a few days, or overnight. Our Disabilities and Special Needs Care Plan is CareShield’s on-demand care service which provides access to our licensed Care Partners on an hourly or as needed basis. There is no minimum, no contract or hidden fees, just on-time, flexible assistance to ensure Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are met.

Surrounded by their possessions, pets, and a familiar environment, our clients receive whatever support they need to enjoy their regular activities and ensure their continued well-being at home.


DISABILITIES AND SPECIAL NEEDS

Assistance with activities of daily living (ADL) related to self care and maintaining good hygiene such as grooming, dressing, bathing, and toileting - always respectful and always professional.

Lifestyle Support

Assistance with instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) such as medication reminders, light housekeeping, home maintenance and help with communicating and managing personal affairs.

Grocery Shopping, Meal Prep and Nutrition

Assistance with grocery shopping, and ensuring nutritious meals are planned and prepared based on dietary needs or prescribed care plans. We can also motivate clients to find the desire necessary to eat and stay hydrated to promote disease prevention, healing, and healthy living.

Our Care Partners provide support and encouragement with doing favorite activities, connecting with friends and family or engaging in the community. We're also here to talk when you need us.

"Most companies hire based on experience. CareShield takes a completely different approach, we look for attitude first, and then we evaluate skills. We want people who like people - and are therefore more motivated to serve them. We can teach skills and competence; I believe that attitude is ingrained."
