Compassionate Care In The Comfort Of Your Own Home

Specialized Support & Recovery Care

Many times our loved ones require additional support as they deal with a chronic illness or disease.  Often these illnesses require special dietary/nutrition plans, specific and clear ways of communication, specialized exercise programs and special knowledge of the illness so issues or condition changes are recognized and immediately addressed.  Gentle Shepherd Home Care hires experienced caregivers with the knowledge and skill necessary to support your loved one.  Additionally, we provide our caregivers with on-going specialized training to support the conditions listed below:

Cancer Support Care
Dementia Support Care
Diabetes Support Care
Chronic Arthritis Support Care
Stroke and Heart Support Care
Post-Surgery Support Care
Post- Hospitalization and/or Surgery Care

Caring for your loved one after a hospital discharge often requires specialized care and home care services.  After a hospital stay, returning back home can be difficult and present new challenges for your elderly loved one.  Elderly individuals can face a roller coaster of emotions during the transition.  If a senior has become more frail or lost their independence, getting re-acclimated may require additional services, such as physical therapy, visiting nurses and increased assistance with daily activities.  Home Health Professionals such as visiting nurses, physical therapist, physicians, and social workers will assess the needs and how best to care for your loved one once they are back home.  Gentle Shepherd Home Care is there to ensure your loved ones caregivers are being proactive and communications among the care team is happening. Additionally, they will ensure the “care plan” is up to date and properly reflects post-hospitalization care requirements.
