Helping a Loved One
As the founder and owner of BethCare Senior Services Inc., I truly understand the challenges faced by family caregivers. It began with my mother’s Dementia diagnosis which had originally propelled me into the uncharted territory of navigating the many physical and emotional challenges that had just begun.
The initial vulnerability and uncertainty that I experienced at the onset of my mother’s diagnosis has provided me with a profound connection for that same vulnerability in others, so I have a deep understanding, tremendous insight and immediate compassion. I also became acutely aware of the stress involved when children do not live locally as my own siblings live far away and depended on me to care for our mother.
As a passionate advocate and compassionate caregiver for my mother as I guided her along her difficult journey, I have followed that same dedication and commitment to build my BethCare team. Whatever the setting and regardless of the situation you and your loved one are facing, our team will provide the kindest and best quality care to both the individual requiring assistance and the family members involved in decision making.
When caring for the elderly, unexpected concerns can often arise; issues that need specific attention. Sometimes they are obvious and require specialized intervention, but sometimes there is a nuanced problem that is cause for attention. When these present themselves, it is so important to have an advocate who is informed about what to do, who to call and how to secure the required assistance or services. I am better able to consult, advocate and navigate the system for those who are new to the experience and I understand the importance of doing this efficiently, respectfully and in confidence.
Knowing how to ask the right questions of the caregivers in order to assess where there is a problem and what is needed to find a solution is one of my exceptional strengths. Having been a caregiver in my own right and a manager who critically oversees the provision of care for others, I have profound hands-on expertise with front line care and effectively managing the compassionate and competent resources who provide it.
We are committed to supporting the health care, social requirements and personal needs of the individual whatever capacity your situation calls for. Providing care is what BethCare does best!
BethCare Care Managers
Providing unparalleled non-medical care is the underpinning of BethCare Services. We have expertise in the orchestration of issues that so often arise and are at times unexpected. Beyond the caregiver’s responsibilities, we are able to ensure the structure of ancillary care of special services that may be required.
With strong communications, we are able to better manage client safety and wellbeing, more successful in organizing hospital to home discharges and better in assisting families with relocation services. Communication, coordination and structuring all health, social and personal needs of each client is the role of the management team at BethCare. A focused, tailor-made approach is developed for both the client and the family. Care Managers provide guidance and direction with the myriad of details involved in helping with decision making and creating solutions together.
The Caregiving team at BethCare is fully insured, bonded, and of course rigorously vetted and trained. Their backgrounds include certified nurse’s aides, retired nurses, certified companions, and/or demonstrate other highly relevant credentials and experience. BethCare further evaluates each individual on judgement, motivation, reliability, initiative and communication skills to ensure the highest levels of professionalism.
In addition to these exacting screening standards, BethCare is cognizant of ensuring a sound fit between the selected caregiver and the individual to whom they will be providing close support and comfort. This is why the BethCare team takes the time to get to know the individual and their family members while assessing their interests, personalities, and needs. It is important to partner the right caregiver with the right client in association not only with decisions about the type of care and level of associated services, but to ensure that the personalities mesh well. Client satisfaction is paramount. The range of services and provision of support is vast, and BethCare patiently explains all options.
