In-Home Personal Care

Better Care Home Health Services is a family-owned agency dedicated to providing excellent and comprehensive home health care to individuals and families of Philadelphia, Delaware, Montgomery and Bucks counties. We are honored that God has blessed us with the opportunity to positively impact and change people’s lives. It is our mission to ensure that we provide the very best of care to our clients.

We offer an exceptional combination of home care and community-based social services. Our goal is to help your loved ones to continue to live safely and confidently in a familiar place they call home. Better Care provides care through caregivers who are trained and/or certified. We offer long-term, short-term, and live-in care.

As we age, those daily rituals like bathing, getting dressed, and keeping tidy become less manageable. You or your loved one may need more hands-on help to continue living life comfortably and independently. At Better Care Home Health Services, our personal care team provides seniors with customized assistance that meets their unique needs and preferences.

Going beyond just physical tasks, our caregivers offer emotional support and companionship. They understand the importance of respecting dignity and independence. Our goal is to make recipients feel cared for, empowered, and uplifted.

Tailored Care That Feels Like Family

At Better Care, you’re more than just a client – you’re part of our family. We take the time to truly understand each senior’s personality, quirks, and needs. Then we match them with a compatible caregiver who feels like an old friend.

Our team asks thoughtful questions to learn your daily routines, challenges, pain points, and how you prefer things done. Do you like listening to music or watching TV news while getting ready in the morning? Do you have any mobility limitations we should know about? What gives you joy and comfort throughout the day?

Armed with this knowledge, we create a plan tailored just for you. The caregiver becomes familiar with your unique preferences, so you feel relaxed, listened to, and cared for. They know how you take your coffee, what clothes you prefer wearing, and how you like your hair styled. 

You can enjoy time together, whether chatting over breakfast or playing rounds of gin rummy.

At Better Care, your caregiver becomes an extension of your family. Their compassionate presence allows you to maintain your lifestyle and favorite daily rituals. You deserve to feel happy, secure, and independent as you receive assistance with personal care tasks.

Supporting Your Freedom

Receiving help with bathing, dressing, and grooming is deeply personal. We understand the vulnerability this can bring up. Our caregivers are deeply committed to upholding dignity and freedom of choice.

You guide all care decisions and routines. Your caregiver offers options, asks questions, and listens closely. They check in about your comfort level and let you set the pace. If you prefer a bath over a shower some days, or want to wear your blue trousers instead of gray, just say the word.

We emphasize you maintain autonomy over your schedule. If you’re an early riser or night owl, your caregiver accommodates your natural rhythm. You deserve care that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle, on your own terms.

At Better Care, we believe quality personal assistance should make you feel empowered, not limited. Our team works hard to nurture your independence in everyday tasks, so you can keep enjoying life’s simple pleasures.

Building Companionship

At Better Care, our goal isn’t just to assist you physically – it’s to uplift you emotionally too. Your caregiver isn’t only there to help you bathe and get dressed – they’re there to listen, laugh, and share in the simple joys of your day.

As you spend time together, you’ll develop a genuine bond beyond just caregiver and client. They’ll learn your life story and be eager to hear your pearls of wisdom. You’ll swap recipes as you cook dinner together and share amusing stories over games of checkers.

This meaningful companionship makes lonely days brighter. It fulfills our human need for connection. You’ll look forward to your caregiver’s visits and the lively chats you’ll share. Their caring presence in your home and life reminds you that you are never alone.

At Better Care, your well-being is cared for in body, mind, and spirit thanks to thoughtful caregivers who become trusted friends.

Assistance with Personal Hygiene

Proper personal hygiene contributes greatly to comfort, health, and self-esteem as we age. Our caregivers provide friendly, dignified assistance with:

Bathing and Grooming

A relaxing bath or shower is a daily delight. Your caregiver provides hands-on help getting in and out of the tub safely, washing hard-to-reach spots, shampooing hair, trimming nails, and more. They ensure you feel refreshed.

Oral Care

From brushing teeth to cleaning dentures, your caregiver helps maintain your oral health. This prevents issues like tooth decay and promotes fresh breath.

Skin Care

Your caregiver checks for any concerning skin changes and helps apply lotions or medicated creams to keep skin healthy. This prevents painful irritations.

Incontinence Care

Managing incontinence can be challenging. Your caregiver discreetly assists with changing adult briefs, managing bladder catheters, and keeping you clean and dry. This maintains comfort and skin integrity.

Dressing and Grooming

Looking tidy boosts self-confidence. Your caregiver assists with getting dressed, styling your hair, and keeping you looking sharp. They know just how you like your outfits put together.

No matter your needs, your Better Care assistant provides personal care in a way that makes you feel respected, relaxed, and confident.

Supporting Family Caregivers

We understand eldercare can place huge burdens on family members too. At Better Care, we provide respite and peace of mind to loved ones caring from afar. You can relax knowing your elderly parent has attentive support each day.

While respecting privacy, we keep family members involved through regular check-ins and updates. We alert you right away about any emerging concerns or changes in your loved one’s health that require attention. You’re always included in major care decisions.

Our team handles urgent needs at any hour, allowing you to focus on your own family and job. With us assisting your parent with personal care, you avoid burnout and guilt from trying to do it all yourself. We’re here so you can focus on just being family.

At Better Care, compassionate support comes full circle – both for the seniors under our care and the families who trust us.

Personal Care for Diverse Needs

Seniors across the spectrum – whether it’s cultural background, language, sexual orientation, or ability level – deserve care tailored to their unique needs. At Better Care, we honor diversity and provide personalized assistance for all.

For non-native English speakers, we match clients with multilingual caregivers to make communication seamless and comfortable. We understand the nuances of delivering care respectfully across different cultural backgrounds. Our team aims to make each senior feel acknowledged in their identity.

For those with physical disabilities or dexterity challenges, our caregivers provide adaptive assistance – such as bathing seated or dressing from a wheelchair – to nurture independence. No matter their needs, we empower every senior to feel cared for in the way that suits them best.

Adapting Care as Needs Change

A major benefit of in-home care is its flexibility to adapt over time. At Better Care, we adjust our care plans as your needs evolve so you can always live life on your terms.

For seniors who are still quite independent, we provide minimal assistance – just periodic help with tasks like bathing or medication reminders. As abilities change, we seamlessly increase our support, while still encouraging you to do all you can on your own.

Our regular check-ins and open communication ensure care continues matching your capabilities. We might increase visits to help you with mobility or modify bathing to seated showers. If abilities decline, we’re there to take on more care tasks, while keeping you as engaged in your own self-care as possible.

No matter where you are on your elder care journey, Better Care provides the right level of support. Our flexibility means you can enjoy each season of life with dignity.
