Companion Care and Personal Care services are available for as little as 2 hours a day and up to 24 hours a day. In addition, there are no limitations as to the number of days per week that we can be hired for.

Here is how some families typically hire ABSOLUTE:

  1. 2 to 6 hours a day: we are hired for these schedules (from 2 to 6 hours a day, several days a week), when our client is self-sufficient and just needs an extra pair of hands for general help, or to help the client get up in the morning and get ready for the day.
  2. 8 to 10-hours a day: schedules a day usually imply that the care recipient lives with a family member, for example a daughter, who goes to work each day. In those schedules we expect to be asked to tend to grooming and bathing issues, meal preparation and assistance with other activities of daily living.
  3. 12-hour day or night shifts: these night shifts could be for someone who doesn’t like to be by themselves at night, and the 12-hour day shifts could again be for someone who lives with a family member who goes out to work during the daytime.
  4. Shifts around the clock: 24-hour care would be for care recipients who cannot be left unattended, either for medical or for other reasons. These can consist of 2 x 12-hour shifts or 3 x 8-hour shifts each day. Because such arrangements can get costly, we might talk to the family about live-in arrangements instead.

4- Live-in Services (by the day)
Many care recipients benefit from the presence of their preferred Aide with them day and night. This avoids the commotion of Aides checking in and out, and it enhances the tranquility and convalescence at home.

Live-in arrangements also provide peace of mind for the rest of the family who can relax to the knowledge that their loved one is with their companion at all times. In addition, live-in schedules offer a cost saving since they are charged by the day and not by the hour.

Please check with our office for rates and availability of live-in staff.

When you get a caregiver as a live-in, you would expect her to undertake all tasks listed in the personal care section above. In other words, whether live-out or live-in, the duties of a caregiver would be the same.

You may hire ABSOLUTE for live-in schedules (by the day), as follows:

  • 2 consecutive live-in days (our minimum)
  • 5 live-in days (any 5 days of the week)
  • 7-day live-in services (ongoing and non-stop services)*

* 7-day live-in schedules involve one primary caregiver and a fill-in live-in caregiver for the weekends.

5- Memory Care (Dementia) Services
Above all, you want to know that your loved one is cared for in a respectful and compassionate way. Towards that mutual objective, we provide an individually customized quality service that respects each patient’s dignity and preserves their distinctiveness in a caring-rich environment. Our caregivers are coached against stereotyping anyone or indulging in condescending behaviors.

In addition, we maintain a breather rotation system that ensures that our on-the-job staff remain alert and considerate. We also mentor our Memory Care staff and ensure that they have all the tools to keep their clients physically active and mentally stimulated.

Putting on Nice Clothes

Confidence and wellbeing are enhanced when a client knows that their outward appearance is “looking good!” ABSOLUTE caregivers go out of their way to ensure that their clients look and feel at their best.

Nicely Prepared Meals

Many of our caregivers are excellent cooks, and they would love to prepare one of their special dishes for you. They would combine health ingredients with what they know that you like. Just ask!

Shopping & Errands

Want to go for a stroll at the Mall, or to church? ABSOLUTE caregivers can make this happen –easily- using their own cars if need be. Just let us know at the office, for we have a simple process for that. Once you’re set up, you and your caregiver can do the rest..

  • That you can terminate services at any time with no monetary or other restrictions . . .
  • That our office staff are available to you and your loved one day and night...
