Life Home Care is located in Livingston, NJ at 70 South Orange Ave, Suite 220. The firm works to promote the safety and independence of seniors in their homes, as well as assisting clients in local facilities with their care needs. Life Home Care provides certified home health aides to seniors and those in need in Livingston and the surrounding areas to assist with their personal care needs, as well as chores and errands.
During these past several months, many seniors have been isolated in their homes or in local nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. Due to COVID 19, restrictions were placed on having visitors come to facilities and clients are afraid to have family members in their own homes. This has been a struggle for both clients and loved ones, as losing contact with the outside world can sometimes lead to increased confusion and loneliness.
Life Home Care has strenuously worked to put systems in to place for family members to check in frequently with our Administrator and Social worker, Michelle Werner. These include a systematic communication of the needs of the clients to avoid risk of infection to an at-risk population. Having caregivers take pictures of pantries or medicine cabinets to determine what groceries are needed, the nurse checking in frequently to monitor medications, and facetime visits are just some of the ways that Life Home Care is working to ensure that their clients stay safe and healthy in their own homes, as well as maintain a positive mental and psychological state of being.
Innovative proprietary technology created by in-house programmers have also allowed for real time scheduling to take place in an effort to ensure that caregivers are available and ready to assist clients at a moment’s notice. While other agencies are struggling to maintain staff during the crisis, Life Home Care’s technology has assisted their care coordinators in determining the needs of each individual client, as well as the schedule of the caregiver, to create an immediate and suitable match.
Life Ride is also another division in the company that provides assistive transportation to doctor’s appointments, medical procedures, errands and more. Taking the necessary precautions, Life Ride is ensuring that clients do not neglect their physical and psychosocial needs due to the fear of exposure to the virus. In addition, the firm has a Durable Medical Equipment division that provides items such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, and more in order to ensure safety in the client’s home.
