While space is limited at the beautiful Vicar’s Landing Retirement community, those in the area of Ponte Vedra, Jacksonville can still reap the benefits of the exceptional care offered to its residents, with Vicar’s Landing Home Health Agency. Created in 2008, this extension offers several health services such as companion staff and home health aides. Seniors can be sure that their retirement is a time of comfort, leisure and wellbeing, where they can maintain their independence for as long as possible.
While for many retirement is a relaxing and low-stress time of life, some seniors can find it to be lonely, and boredom can start to set in. That’s why Vicar’s Landing offers Companion services, which pair residents with caring staff who not only keep them company, but also offer more practical services as well – from light housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation, and reminders to take medication, to transportation services to help with shopping and errands – companions make life a little easier for seniors while also providing stimulating conversation, or engaging in recreational activities like cards or board games. Companions can help seniors with sight difficulties to read the newspaper, their mail, or a favourite book, and also provide respite care, transitional care, and assistance with correspondence. Despite the name, companion services provide more than simple companionship, also offering practical assistance with daily tasks to ensure seniors have the structure needed to live their best life.
Vicar’s Landing also provides Home Health Aides, who assist seniors with a manner of personal upkeep such as dressing, bathing, skincare, personal and oral hygiene, toileting and incontinence care. These trained and caring staff can assist with medical needs such as taking and recording vital signs, ambulation, transfer and mobility assistance, and they can provide a helping hand with feeding and eating.
Many seniors prefer to remain in the familiar surroundings of the home they are used to. Whatever the care requirements might be, Vicar’s Landing Home Health Agency allows that possibility, ensuring that all needs are met right in the safety and comfort of their own home. Appointments are available to discuss specific needs and create a care plan, and meetings are free and no obligation – should you decide that care is not needed at the current time, the meeting costs you nothing yet provides you all the information you need in order to make use of the services at a later date.
