If given the choice, your loved one would prefer to age gracefully at home. Yet, the changing needs of aging parents can pose a challenge that adult children and spouses are unable to manage. CaraVita Home Care’s “Healthy Balance” program was designed by our founder, healthcare leader Beth Cayce, to support individuals and families needing professional personal care services at home.
The Healthy Balance Program maximizes functional independence for clients through the following four key elements:
1. Restorative Care
Building on the clients strengths, caregivers maximize function through daily activity programs inlcuding mobility exercises, deep breathing, and relaxation. For those with dementia, we learn their Life Story and use past memories to stimulate cognitive engagement to create “Joy in the Moment” activities.
2. Psychosocial Independence
Honoring independence allows the client to remain securely in charge of their environment. An emphasis is placed on the chemistry between the client and caregiver. Our caregivers are sensitized to the needs for our clients to direct as much of their daily plan as possible while ensuring their safety.
3. Wellness Principles
The principles addressed in the service plan include proper nutrition and hydration, medication oversight, promotion of good sleeping habits, bowel and bladder protocols, regular personal care, and behavioral observation with appropriate interactions and documented responsiveness.
4. Technology and Equipment
CaraVita’s “Smart House” demonstrates how technology and equipment can be used to foster independence at home. The Smart House showcases behavioral and activity monitoring technology, medication dispensing equipment, safe transfer devices, and adaptive equipment.
Our commitment to successful outcomes and interactions drives every aspect of the service we deliver in order to keep people in their homes as safely and comfortably as possible. Our mission is to provide and manage superior care in order for families to enjoy Quality Time with their loved ones. Utilizing our services promotes a Healthy Balance and an enhanced fulfilling Quality of Life.
