There are many misconceptions about Hospice Care and end-of-life care. Due to these misconceptions, many who might benefit from the service may not receive it until the very end. Here are six things I wish everyone knew about hospice…
This month, CaraVita Home Care is highlighting Mary Miringu, one of our driven and compassionate employees! We’re excited to share her story, as well as an account from one of her clients! We appreciate her taking the time to speak with us, and we would like you to join us in highlighting her accomplishments.
This month, we would like to congratulate Mary Miringu, our CaraVita Home Care Caregiver of the Month!
We asked one of Mary's clients, Ken, to speak about how Mary cares for one of her clients!
Growing up in Kenya with two brothers and eight sisters, Mary Miringu first started caring for elders at an early age.
Our CaraVita Home Care Caregiver of the Month is Glory Uluocha!
Glory Uluocha is originally from Nigeria. She studied early childhood education and worked in that field before moving to the United States over twenty years ago.
Shortly after moving to America, she married her loving husband, and they now have three beautiful children: one boy who is 20-years old and two girls, now 23 and 17.
Seniors may face a multitude of changes at this stage in life, including changes in memory. It's perfectly reasonable for older adults to forget an appointment or medication now and then, but when is it considered memory impairment? At CaraVita, we know that it's not easy to always monitor your loved ones, but we want to emphasize the importance of maintaining a healthy body and mind.
Choosing our CaraVita Caregiver of the Year is always such a difficult task! We have so many fantastic care partners on our staff that truly put their heart and soul into what they do. So many of our team members are deserving of this honor.
Technology is a wonderful thing. Having the ability to guide you where you're going, remind you of something you've forgotten or being able to answer any questions you could have are a few of the perks of new technology today. When applied to seniors, technology takes on a whole new application.
It can be challenging to stay positive when your loved one is dealing with medical issues. CaraVita Home Care wants to share ways to remain positive when a loved one is going through a hospital to home program.
Congratulations, Balkiss Bochere, our December Caregiver of the Month! We are excited at the opportunity this month to spend some time with Balkiss to learn what makes her such an incredible caregiver!
The holidays always have a way of sneaking up on us, and if you are a last-minute shopper like some of us here at CaraVita Home Care, you may be frantically online shopping to get the job done before your family gathering.
The holiday season is upon us! If you are caring for a loved one living with dementia, the holiday season can be both wonderful and challenging. It is a great time of the year to engage with your loved one in favorite activities and memories from holidays past, but it can also be difficult to navigate these traditions in new ways that offer the proper support for them.
