On both occasions I used their service, the caregivers either left minimal or no notes while visiting my elderly parents (no eating, sleeping or bathroom data). After the first visit, I contacted a supervisor at Around the Clock and asked specifically that the caregivers leave notes on eating, sleeping patterns, etc. Instead of improving, on the 2nd visit I only received notes from 1 of 3 caregivers...I paid for 16 hours of caregiving for people who may or may not have even showed up for all I know. Their medical staff is also hit and miss. On my father's post-hospital rehab, one of the 3 nurses missed appts at the house repeatedly...only making 1 of 5 scheduled appointments. After this, I contacted Around the Clock and asked them to send out a more reliable nurse. In the 5 weeks that have passed since, we have received 1 visit from a nurse...nobody makes their scheduled appointments. Is this the care you want for your elderly parents??
According to the National Stroke Association, strokes are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. Even if an individual survives a stroke, it can lead to permanent impairment. Depending on the extent of damage to the brain, a stroke may leave a person with deficits such as vision loss, memory problems and/or paralysis or weakness on one side of the body.
D’après François René Germain, Directeur de la Direction Accessibilité du Groupe : « La gestion et prévention des risques de la personne tout comme la gestion domotique du domicile, sont au cœur du dispositif que nous avons mis sur pied. Nous avons de fait construit un écosystème complet permettant d’enregistrer, via des algorithmes auto-apprenants, l’activité normale d’une personne à son domicile, puis permettant de comparer les flux enregistrés par les capteurs, à la situation initiale : des capteurs d’ouverture de porte, de mouvement, mais aussi liés à la nutrition, au sommeil ou à l’hydratation. ».

I go to an assigned clients house. I begin the day by making breakfast and starting laundry, after breakfast I wash the dishes. I usually sit with the client for awhile after that set up medicine and remind them to take it then ask what the plan for the day is. Go to grocery or run errands for the client if needed, I hang up laundry , vacuum, clean bathroom and take out trash. Every client has different needs. My days aren't the same all the time.
