Hygiene Care

CareTown offers bathing and grooming assistance for your elderly or disabled loved ones. We understand the difficulties that seniors face as they get older and cannot perform everyday tasks such as bathing, grooming, shaving, etc. Our caregivers ensure your loved ones’ hygiene is in check. It all starts with good practice. If a bathtub is present, then CareTown professionals will always recommend this option over a shower stall. However, if your loved one prefers a shower experience, then we can accommodate the request. Our caregivers make sure that the water temperatures are appropriate, not too hot or cold.  Privacy concerns? You’ll never have to worry! We understand that every human in the world has their own special privacy needs. Our caregivers can wrap a towel over any necessary areas so clients feel their most comfortable during the process. We will honor any special requests or preferences.  


Meal Preparation

A healthy but delicious meal can boost the health of your loved ones. As your parents get older, they may lose interest in food or proper nutrition. While you are working away from home, dinner times may be lonely and bland. This can worsen their quality of life. We care for your mother and/or your father because we know how it feels to see them change as they age. This is why we have trained our caregivers on how to prepare healthy but delicious meals. Our caregivers can help you with meal preparation by:

  • Assisting with menu planning
  • Taking into consideration dietary restrictions and other limitations
  • Monitoring food and fluid intake
  • Motivate meal preparation
  • We’ll even do the shopping

CareTown professionals understand that not everyone will be able to eat the same things. We understand that your loved one may have dietary restrictions. If they have for example, diabetes, we know that adjusting their diet to include healthier foods can often improve their conditions and lessen their symptoms. 


Medication Monitoring

Medication monitoring and reminders include the following tasks to help your loved one remain healthy and safe:

  • Complete inventory of medications
  • Maintain and track medication schedule
  • Report any side effects to family members and medical personnel
  • Reminders to take medications on time and in the proper dosage

Around 1.3 million Americans are injured each year due to medication errors. Confused packaging, lack of communication, overdosing, and dangerous interactions with other medications or foods is the most common reason of these faults in elderly persons. Let us help you avoid this situation for your loved one’s.


Transportation Services

As seniors grow older, their driving abilities may decline due to vision problems. Our senior clients will feel at ease in the passenger’s seat as CareTown caregivers transport them to hospital visits, run errands, and visit friends and family members. Some of the senior transportation services we provide are:

  • Escort to hospital appointments, check-ups, or follow-ups.
  • Walking them through the door of their home which includes accompanying them until they feel comfortable.
  • Transportation from point A to point B (grocery shopping, family visits, banking, pharmacy pickup, etc).
  • Being your loved one’s Travel Companion, for vacations and family visits within or outside Texas (helping your loved one check in and out, carry luggage, track medication and diet, and renting a vehicle).


Walking And Mobility Services


Changes in life situations can be hard to handle. Some of the changes we face when we age can be life-threatening. Muscle weakness, joint problems, back pains, and neurological disease can all contribute to mobility problems that an elderly is facing. These problems are more serious than what others might think. Imagine your father going upstairs and suddenly, he feels this reeling pain in his joints – which ends up causing him to trip or worse, fall.  Nobody wants that to happen to any of our family members. You may not always be available to look after them, but for sure, you want them to be safe. No worries, CareTown knows what can be done to lower the risks. Our professional caregivers encourage them to do strength and mobility exercises. Our trained caregivers make note of the prescriptions given by doctors or over-the-counter medicines that can cause drowsiness or distractions. Our caregivers are also trained to detect misdiagnosed eye conditions or other common diseases like arthritis which can often increase the risk of dangerous falls.


Dementia & Alzheimer's Care

Do you have a loved one who has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s? It can be incredibly overwhelming to accept a diagnosis, let alone look towards Alzheimer’s care for your family member. Many families assume the only options for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s are to place them in a nursing home or assisted living facility. But with CareTown, you can provide your loved one with Alzheimer’s care in their very own home. Familiar surroundings and daily routines are appealing to those living with Alzheimer’s. With Alzheimer’s care from CareTown, your loved one can maintain their independence, freedom, and daily routines. 


Parkinson's Care


Caring for a family with a Parkinson’s Disease can be difficult at times, especially as the disease progresses.
This occurs when the dopamine in the brain lessens. No one really knows what causes this neurodegenerative disorder and why it has such a debilitating effect on the movement of muscles. There is no cure for PD; that is why the objective treatment is to manage the symptoms and allow the patient to enjoy life.

CareTown offers you HELP to maintain the quality of life for your loved one:

  • Nutrition and meal planning is necessary, it is vital that the patient eat foods that strengthen his bones and muscles.
  • The steadiness of the patient’s bones and muscles are starting to weaken; which causes him to trip or fall. As a solution, our professionals will give them personal supervision and home safety.
  • A person with PD also needs help on his daily activities like bathing, eating, dressing, and using the bathroom. Our caregivers are professionals which will help the patient to do what the patient needs, without compromising his privacy.
  • Driving can be difficult or restricted for a Parkinson’s patient. CareTown provides rides to appointments, therapy, etc.
