Pasadena’s Resources

Resource Downloads

We strive to inform and educate. Here is a small sample of resources we have to offer to help you make the best decision for your family.

Caregiver for your loved ones in the comfort of their own house in Pasadena California

Many disabled or elderly individuals will eventually need home care assistance so that they're able to remain living in their own houses. Research demonstrates that these individuals do better emotionally if they can stay at home where they are emotionally comfortable, however, they may need ongoing assistance with medical care or their daily living tasks.

Senior Care

The elderly and disabled can stay in their own home, while obtaining the care that they need for their individual condition and symptoms.

Elderly Care

Whether they need daily care for their personal needs like dressing, bathing, and meal preparation, or they just need occasional help with light housekeeping, a service like this can go a long ways toward improving their daily quality of life. Read More

Alzheimer's Care

Patients with Alzheimer's often do much better if they're maintained in a familiar living situation. When a caregiver is involved, the patients are able to stay in their own home, comfortably, and still receive the supervision and care that they'll need for their own personal health and safety. Read More

Parkinson's Care

If a patient struggles with Parkinson's, they will likely need more care on an ongoing basis as their condition worsens. As a patient loses the ability to lose their hands reliably, a caregiver can assist them with a variety of their daily tasks. Read More

Dementia Care

Dementia is another condition in which an individual's mental capacity can decline with age, as symptoms worsen. The condition doesn't manifest precisely the same in any two patients, so the level of care can vary from one client to another.

Stroke Care

Strokes can cause serious physical and psychological changes. The individual may be left paralyzed or slightly paralyzed on one side of their body, or they may not be able to get around their home as easily as they used to be able to. A caregiver can help these individuals get around their home and complete their daily tasks. Read More

Cancer Care

A client who is going through cancer treatment may need help with light housekeeping tasks, meal preparation, and rides to and from their treatments. Caregivers can step in and handle many of these tasks for the individual while they are recuperating from their treatments. The caregiver can help support the client emotionally, as well as assisting them with basic tasks like shopping, meal planning, and even sitting with them through their many medical appointments. Read More

About Our Caregivers

Our caregivers are all highly skilled professionals who have been trained to treat a client with respect no matter the situation. Each has gone through an extensive background check and is certified in various types of caregiving. They can keep an eye out for signs that the client needs additional services due to medical issues or changes, and can report them back to us as required. Read More

A caregiver typically goes the extra mile to make sure that their patient is happy, safe, and comfortable. This can take more effort for some than for others. Individuals with Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, or dementia may need care that is more specialized than those who are just getting older or who can't get around their home as well due to a physical disability. Either way, a skilled caregiver will always watch out for ways to help their client with routines and their daily tasks.
