Your parents live together in their own home and until recently they’ve been managing to help each other and get by…but lately, they’re not doing so well and you’re quite concerned.
 

Your father-in-law is very attached to his home.  He’s lived there for decades—he built the home himself 50 years ago—and he has sworn that he will never willingly leave the house.  He loves his home, but he is unable to cope with the upkeep and his faltering health.  You need the help of a Warm Embrace caregiver who can provide the necessary help to keep your loved ones safe and well-cared for in the comfort of their own homes.
 

Warm Embrace can provide all the non-medical help that your loved ones require to remain living at home.  You probably find that your mother doesn’t need constant medical attention—in fact, she doesn’t even really need medical help outside of her doctor’s appointments.  What she really needs is someone to cook nutritious meals, stay on top of the housekeeping, and help with the laundry.  Your mother doesn’t need nursing attention, so placing her in a nursing home may not suit her current needs.  What she really needs is a Warm Embrace caregiver.
 

Caregivers are able to help with all the tasks of daily living, from personal care right through to household tasks.  As our company name says, we focus on the client first—the Warm Embrace.  Companionship and social interaction are the cornerstone of what we offer.  Rather than losing independence, your loved one is gaining a new friend.  This new caregiver is a friend first, and a helper second. 
 

Our goal is to provide the help that your loved one needs to remain living at home. We can help with many household things; following is a list of some of those tasks.  It is certainly not an exhaustive list but rather, the most frequently requested tasks.  If you have unique requests, just ask us!
