Colorado Springs Personal Care
Beo Personal Care is dedicated to improving the quality of life for every patient and family we touch. Everyday activities are at times taken for granted – such as, bathing, eating, or dressing – and may be too difficult for the aging parent or disabled family member. Beo is committed to provide sensitive, confidential care services in a way that respects your loved one’s dignity and well-being. We will work with you to develop a customized home care plan that meets the needs of both patient and family.
Using Beo will help prevent patients who are confused over which medications to take, and when. Additional, knowledgeable support in “next-step” decision-making processes, scheduling follow-up appointments with doctors, and simple day-to-day reminders are all part of the service we provide.
Beo Companion Services
They say “Love” can be the best medicine and having someone to sit and visit with can help make for a happier life with meaning and something to look forward to. Beo’s caring companionship services cover anything from conversation, eating a meal together or just having someone in the home to visit and keep a safe eye on you or your loved one.
Reminding clients to take their medications, reporting/documenting side effects, and assisting with pre-measured medication packages are all ways in which we can help. Although our caretakers cannot administer medications, they can assist the individual who shares in the responsibility of taking their own medication. Where appropriate, we will coordinate the installation of medication dispensing devices at our discounted group rates.
A Beo caretaker will prepare a nutritious meal, including all the clean up. The opportunity to eat regular, healthy meals can maintain strength and hydration, promote recovery, and assure appropriate absorption of medications.
Shopping & Errand Services
A caretaker can run errands such as picking up prescriptions, dry cleaning, or supplies for social events. Some specific examples include:
- Grocery Shopping – this can be done with or without the client. The client can also specify particular stores and the caretaker can assure compliance with prescribed diets.
- Incidental Shopping – Caretakers can take clients wherever they need or want to go. More than just maintaining independence, social stimulation is therapeutic as well.
Vacuuming, dusting, cleaning floors, cleaning bathrooms, cleaning kitchens, taking out the trash, straightening rooms, organizing closets and drawers, are just some of the tasks that Beo can help with.
Washing clothes and linens can be a long and strenuous activity. Beo can wash, dry, fold, iron and put away a client’s laundry for them, alleviating physical stress.
Many times our elderly or disabled clients are capable of performing their own bathing and other personal care services. However, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that a trained Beo caregiver is standing by for assistance and safety supervision often gives the client/family some necessary reassurance.
Family Respite Care
In situations where we provide a respite for a primary family caregiver (e.g. a wife caring for a husband or a daughter caring for her mother), we find that with our help the family relationship can strengthen when one removes the considerable stress that the role of family caretaker can bring. We find that most often care for a client is a family situation, not just an individual client needing care. We are always mindful of this when advising families on care.
Beo can take the client out to enjoy their favorite activities or stay in the home and play a hand of cards or a board game. We want our clients to remain engaged and to maintain the hobbies and activities they’ve always enjoyed.
Personal Hygiene & Dressing Guidance
We can provide reminders and guide clients toward good hygiene. We can also help put together outfits and help button buttons, tie shoes, put on socks.
Incoming Mail Organization
Our clients need not worry about sorting through the myriad of junk mail we all seem to get these days. Our caretakers sit down with clients and assist in sorting the important mail such as bills, etc. Additionally, we can provide reminders for when bills are due.
Family Care Plan Review
Keeping the family informed of the caregiver plan and answering any questions is a cornerstone of our Beo services. We want everyone to feel comfortable with the caregiving situation and keeping the lines of communication open is key. Whether you live in the same town or are on the opposite coast, Beo will make sure to keep in touch with the family on a recurring basis.
Personal Emergency Response Systems & Fall Detection Devices
Beo can help you achieve a sense of ease knowing that with the touch of a button you or your loved one can have instant access to emergency services.
Personal Care Services
Bathing is essential to an individual’s personal hygiene and more importantly, to the way a person feels. Not only do our bathing services ensure that clients continue to feel comfortable in social situations, but they also maintain skin integrity, stimulate circulation, and reduce the potential for infection.
Aging and disabled clients may lack the fine motor skills required for something most people take for granted. Assisting with proper mouth, gum, and denture care can be vital in the prevention of tooth decay, gum disease, and other infection.
Keeping on the move is vital to both mental and physical well being. Beo makes sure that movement occurs on a regular basis and takes into account any physical limitations for each client.
Special Diet/Meal Preparation
Our caregivers and administrators will work with family and other healthcare professionals to plan meals according to clients’ specific needs. This could include specifications for diabetics, low sodium needs, puree, or others.
Positioning clients in the proper postures is something often overlooked in the caregiving regimen. However, proper posture encourages better digestion and circulation, and aides in the prevention of muscle atrophy and skin sores.
In some cases, clients are unable to feed themselves. Beo caregivers are sensitive to the emotional issues connected with the inability to perform this basic function and can provide caregivers trained in the appropriate safety precautions.
Assistance with urinary and bowel care can be vital to remaining socially active. Our caregivers and home health aides understand the sensitivity of this situation and are experienced with providing such care.
This is another basic life function, that when lost, is difficult to deal with emotionally. Beo caregivers know how to discreetly aid in this sensitive area, providing physical help and addressing all types of toileting needs.
Beo provides senior care services that range from companion services to personal care. Our home health care services provide support while maintaining independence and comfort. Contact us for your home care services needs today.
