Chronic Disease Management

Millions of people in Canada are living with a chronic disease that makes daily life more challenging. At Senior Helpers, we don’t believe a diagnosis should get in the way of joy, independence, and freedom. 

With a comprehensive in-home care plan and an experienced caregiver, managing a chronic condition is less overwhelming. Our services can include exercise routines, assistance with daily activities, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication management, and more, depending upon your loved one’s needs and preferences. Personalized care is essential to account for each person’s unique experience with a chronic condition, as well as their own preferences and capabilities.

Our non-medical in-home care is available for seniors with a variety of chronic conditions, such as:

  • COPD and other lung diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer’s and dementia
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cancer
  • Stroke

Senior Helpers can be an integral part of your support network. Whether you’re caring for someone who has recently been diagnosed or navigating the challenges of a disease that is progressing, our caregiving team works closely with your family and medical professionals to contribute the non-medical support that makes it possible for your loved one to remain at home.

Our Caregivers can provide one-on-one assistance with:

  • Client supervision to prevent wandering
  • Medication and toileting reminders
  • Incontinence care to prevent skin irritations and infection
  • Shopping and meal preparation to maintain nutrition
  • Transportation to errands and medical appointments
  • Respite for family members
  • Engaging or calming activities
  • Exercise routines to reduce depression and anxiety and maintain strength and balance
  • Emotional support and engaging conversation
  • Monitoring the condition of skin and lower extremities to prevent skin breakdown, ulcers, and related injuries
  • Proper oral hygiene to prevent gum disease (common in diabetics)

Chronic disease care can support independence and enjoyment in life while managing daily symptoms and the unique challenges of the condition. Learn more about Senior Helpers and our personalized approach to in-home care. Contact us today for your free consultation.
