Julie is CPR certified, an avid gardner, and musically inclined. She enjoys sharing her talents with others and is a resident of the Como Park Falcon Heights Neighborhood.
Cost for Homemaker/Companion Care is $25.00 per hour, with a minimum of a 1-hour visit. To find out more or to schedule Homemaker/Companion services, call us at (651) 642-1127. Homemaker Services can also be gifted in our Online Store.
Homemaker/Companion Services can include:
We can prepare hot, delicious, and nutritious meals, allowing the client to help with preparation according to their ability. Many do not have the opportunity to eat a well-balanced meal, so this service helps elders get the nutrition needed to enjoy healthier living.
These services can be done in the home or the laundromat and include washing, drying, ironing, and putting clothes away. We will involve the client to make sure laundry is done according to their preferences.
Light housekeeping services include vacuuming, dusting, sweeping, mopping floors, cleaning bathrooms (sinks, tubs, showers, and toilets), cleaning kitchens (sinks, appliances, counters, taking out trash), straightening all rooms, organizing closets and drawers, and cleaning any interior windows that can be reached without a ladder.
Let us shop for groceries at the stores of client preference or run errands, such as picking up prescriptions or going to the post office.
Respite Care or Relief for Family
Caregiving can be rewarding and often strengthens bonds within a family. At the same time, caregiving can be demanding amid life's other responsibilities. Family caregivers and those in their care can benefit from a little time off now and then. That is why Como Park/Falcon Heights Living-At-Home Block Nurse Program offers respite caregiving. This service can be scheduled as needed to provide family caregivers time to run errands, go shopping, or get some much-needed rest.
