Home Care Without The Stress
We know your emotions. Many experience some of the worst stress and strain caused from feeling like they are not adequately taking care of a loved one. Life is full of overwhelming twists and turns that make it hard for you to care for yourself and your family, much less a parent or loved one who is aging.
OUR MISSION, CORE VALUES, ACTIONS AND PILLARS
One Mission: to change the face of aging.
Two Core Values: Love and Serve. These core values are drawn from Scripture. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (“…faith, hope, and love. And the greatest of these is love.”) and Mark 10:45 (…the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve…”).
Three Actions: We love and serve our clients, we love and serve our staff, and we love and serve with innovation.
Four Pillars: We have “Four Pillars” that AKOTA Home Care is built upon.
- We allow a senior adult to live as independently as possible for as long as possible wherever they live
- We let daughters be daughters again…instead of caregivers
- We provide a career path for international workers to serve in the health care system
- We feed families all across the globe
A FAMILY AFFAIR
AKOTA Home Care is family owned and operated company and is NOT a franchise. The company is wholly owned by the Lindsay family. When you contact us, you are able to talk directly to the owners! Jim and his son, Casey, have been working together in the home care industry together to bring stress relief to you and dignity to your loved one. Read a little more about our background and experience.
HOME CARE MANAGEMENT: Oversight of care for a loved one is often difficult. That is where we can help. Our AKOTA team specializes in case management oversight, in which we strive to remain cutting edge on all best practices, national trends, regulations, and new technology that is shaping the home care market. Our case management would allow you to take advantage of the following services;
- Scheduling physical therapy, prescription refills, and doctor appointments
- Screening, arranging and monitoring in-home caregivers
- Referring to specialists in all areas as needed for help and advice.
- Coordinating a move to or from an assisted living, retirement or acute care facility
- Provide counseling, educational materials, advocacy and support
- Recommending and arranging safety upgrades in your loved one’s home
LIGHT HOUSEKEEPING: We make sure that a loved one can keep their house in good order. We do not offer a cleaning service, but our caregivers are more than willing to help clean the house in small ways that allow your loved one to remain in a tidy and clutter-free home. These items include:
DEMENTIA CARE: Our caregivers are specialized in taking care of patients with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Each one of our caregivers has received an extensive amount education in order to better care for a patient who may no longer be able to perform daily functions as well.
TRANSPORTATION: Transportation is often a challenge. Additionally, many find it hard to find a home care provider that is willing to offer transportation services. We believe at AKOTA Home Care that extending our patient’s independence and freedom is vital. This is why we offer transportation services. This transportation can include taking patients to events, performing errands, and even just going out to enjoy a beautiful day at the park.
FOOD PREPARATION: We believe that customizing the care of your loved one to meet their deepest needs is important. We collect favorite recipes and other preferences of you and your loved one in order to fit a caregiver to help with cooking some of your favorite meals.
PERSONAL HYGIENE: Personal hygiene strongly correlates to a person’s dignity. We want to make sure that a person never loses their dignity. AKOTA Home Care employees are glad to help with bathing, grooming, and dressing of patients who require this assistance.
COMPANIONSHIP: Sometimes a loved one can be fully functional but still require someone just to be with them. We recognize your busy schedule doesn’t allow you to always be around. Therefore, we offer the ability for you to rest assured that your loved one has someone who is there to talk to them and keep them company, even if they don’t need the other services listed above.
