Compassion Is Our Mission
There will always come a time in our lives when our role in caring for an older parent or relative becomes a major part of our lives. For many adults across the country, this becomes a heavy responsibility and pressure. At Specialized Senior Care, we see caring for seniors as a privilege not a burden and definitely not just an obligation. So, when there comes a time where you can’t be there, you can rest assure that we will provide the best home care along with a genuine, compassionate smile in a place that’s near and dear to their hearts—home.
Needing Time To Recover?
Recovering from an illness or injury—even surgery or childbirth—can make it difficult to perform daily household tasks or, in some cases, manage personal care. We offer a helping hand that makes regaining or maintaining independence easier with personalized support and sincere encouragement from experienced caregivers.
Living with a disability presents unique challenges, but dignity and quality of life should never be compromised. We understand how to help people with disabilities and their families face their own personal challenges in ways that promote independence and offer reassurance; always mindful that a person is not defined by his or her disability.

Maintaining Your Dignity
Specialized Care Services provides a variety of personal care services to assist with the activities of daily living—giving you additional peace of mind and your family member the dignity and comfort he or she deserves.
Bathing and Hygiene
For many health and social reasons, good personal hygiene is very important. Our in home personal caregivers are specially trained in bathing, personal hygiene and other personal care services, and always focus on preserving the dignity, comfort, and health of each client.
Walking and Mobility Assistance
We recognize that our clients can benefit from regular movement both physically and mentally. Our personal caregivers carefully consider the physical limitations and comfort of each client’s ability to walk, climb stairs, get in and out of vehicles, and make other routine movements as they assist them.
Transfer and Posture Positioning
In addition to helping our clients with regular movement around the home or around town, our personal care services also concentrate on making sure each client maintains proper posture for eating or while sitting and reading or watching television. This helps with digestion and circulation. We can also assist with helping clients get in and out of bed or the bathroom.
Continence and Toileting Care
Our caregivers are trained and experienced in assisting with urinary and bowel care. We understand the role that toileting care can play in a client’s comfort, self-esteem, and social life.
Special Diets and Meal Preparation
We work with clients, families, and nutrition professionals to plan and prepare meals according to the specific needs of our clients. This can include shopping for special diets (diabetic, low-sodium, low-trans fat, etc.) and working to fix favorite dishes just right.
Some of our clients may have physical and emotional challenges in the ability to perform basic functions. Our personal care services provide exceptional sensitivity, care, and safety for clients with these challenges.
Our caregivers can help our clients with mouth, gum, and denture care to encourage better overall oral hygiene.
Dementia Care Services: Truly Personal, Truly Unique
At Specialized Senior Care, we have developed dementia care plans to help people who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s cope with the anxiety, depression, confusion and isolation that is often associated with the disease. Our unique programs for dementia care services at home help not only the dementia sufferer, but the family as a whole.
If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person. That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.
That’s why we’ve developed a unique Dementia Program—building dementia care services around the individual, not the disease—incorpocertified who they were, not just who we see today. It’s a personalized and engaging dementia home care approach, where our goal is to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose. Many people with dementia want at home care, to keep at least their surroundings familiar in a world suddenly filled with uncertainties.
We want to understand the intangible things that make your mom or dad who they are. We ask questions like:
What makes you happy?
What makes you laugh?
What makes you feel accomplished?
What distresses or frustrates you?
Our long term dementia care coordinators and caregivers use this information to build specific and individualized dementia care plans for daily care. To help you throughout the process, we make you a part of our rigorous caregiver selection process and one-on-one consultations. And to ensure that our dementia care services are always evolving to provide the best possible family experiences, we continually evaluate its effectiveness with client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils.
