Golden Independence® provides help and support for family caregivers.
With our busy lives caring for a loved one although rewarding can be very stressful. With demanding workloads and children to raise it can be hard to find time for yourself. Family caregivers are not alone, though. It is estimated that nearly 44 million Americans (predominately Baby Boomers) regularly care for an elderly relative.
With so many people depending on them, it is crucial that caregivers take the time to care for themselves. No matter how much they love the people they are caring for, caregivers need regular breaks to perform at their best. That is where Golden Independence Respite Care, can help. We offer a wide range of in-home services so you can find time to rest and recharge. Whether you need an hour of care a week, or 24 hour round the clock care for a short duration our care team is here to help. You can rest assured that your loved one will be safe and comfortable at home while you are away.
Respite care gives caregivers a unique opportunity to leave home for a few hours with the peace of mind that comes with knowing their loved ones are in capable hands. With Golden Independence respite care, caregivers can schedule as much or as little time away as they need. Arranging for respite care is easy, just give our office a call and one of our Care Coordinators can help get you started.
On-Call Nurse Services
We begin every client relationship with a comprehensive in-home evaluation by a nurse who then develops a customized care plan. Our on-call nurse will visit the home to gather all pertinent medical and personal information, create a customized care plan based on this information, and perform a fall risk assessment.
Our nurse will educate you, your loved one, and any other caregivers on managing chronic conditions. During the evaluation, our nurse will review the proposed schedule of service and answer any further questions that you or your loved one may have. Throughout the case, the nurse oversees the caregiver and performs reassessments, as needed.
Golden Independence will address the physical and social needs of every client, taking into account family members who are acting as caregivers as well. Every client’s situation is different. Our individualized approach allows us to deliver a care plan that best meets the needs of you and your loved one.
Feel free to call our Intake Specialist to schedule an in-home Nurse Evaluation.
