Home Care Preserves Independence for Lincoln Seniors

Our caregivers tend to day-to-day activities that become difficult with age. 

  • Helping seniors bathe, dress, and move around gives them freedom that declining mobility can take away. 
  • Support with household chores, transportation, and social interaction also promotes independence.
  • We provide medication reminders on schedule. This is key for individuals dealing with multiple complex conditions. 
  • Our caregivers report new or changing health issues requiring medical attention. 
  • We also provide safety through fall prevention and creating hazard-free home environments.

Respite for Family Caregivers

Caring full-time for loved ones in declining health wears down even the most dedicated family caregiver. Respite care provides needed breaks so caregivers can rest and refuel.

AmanaCare In-Home Assistance supplies compassionate respite care on a one-time or routine basis. We give family caregivers peace of mind that their loved one is safe and happy, while they focus on self-care.

Our staff keeps routines consistent in the family caregiver’s absence to minimize anxiety. We also supply family members with regular status updates. Most importantly, we encourage open communication about specific respite care needs.

Respite care empowers family caregivers to take care of themselves. Maintaining physical and mental health helps them provide care longer-term. It also enhances patience, energy and moods when handling caregiving’s daily stress.
