Compassionate and Sensitive Care
Promedcare is dedicated to enhancing quality of life by delivering compassionate non-medical care to clients of all ages at home by utilizing trained and dedicated staff who continuously strive for excellence. We support your choice to stay at home, and we achieve this by being our clients’ aid for the following:
Bathing, Grooming, Dressing and Hygiene
Promedcare care givers help clients look and feel their best. These services enhance clients’ mental as well as physical well-being, helping them feel positive about their appearance. Bathing not only cleanses the skin, but goes deeper to refresh the spirit, provide relaxation and stimulate circulation.
Promedcare assist clients as needed with mobility to help them maintain as active a lifestyle as possible. Being able to get out and about offers both physical and mental health benefits to seniors. Physical health benefits of activity include increased stamina and energy, a strengthened heart, lower blood pressure and improved digestion and sleep. In addition, activity improves mood, releases stress and increases mental alertness.
Transferring and Positioning
Promedcare personnel are trained to move and place clients in correct posture position to promote health and safety and proper functioning of the body’s many systems. Proper transferring and positioning from or into beds and chairs eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce weakening and stiffening of muscles, and encourage proper breathing, digestion and elimination.
Toileting and Incontinence Care
Promedcare care givers compassionately and sensitively care for seniors and other adults, helping them maintain dignity and self-esteem as they receive help with the activities of daily living. Through this caring approach, Promedcare help to lessen clients’ embarrassment associated with the loss of independence related to incontinence and need for toileting assistance.
Feeding and Special Diet
For a number of reasons, adults may need help feeding themselves. This loss of independence can be difficult to accept. Promedcare personnel understand this and make the extra effort to turn mealtime into an enjoyable social time.
In addition, Promedcare care givers help make certain that seniors and other clients stay on prescribed diets to prevent or control a wide variety of medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis. And in general, Promedcare enable clients to eat a well balanced diet that provides the energy needed for active living and nutrients for disease prevention, healing and healthful living.
Walking and Exercise
Regular exercise is necessary to improve endurance, strengthen body muscles including the heart. Assistance will be provided to help the clients obtain their daily exercise.
Although Promedcare personnel cannot administer medications, they can help ensure that clients take their own medication as prescribed. Promedcare can assist with opening medication containers, reading labels, and reminding the client when it is time to take a dose.

Respite Care or Relief for Family
Care giving can be rewarding and often strengthens bonds within a family. At the same time, care giving can be demanding amidst life’s other responsibilities.
Family caregivers and those in their care can benefit from a little time off now and then. That is why Promedcare offers respite care giving. This service can be scheduled as needed to provide family caregivers time to run errands, go shopping or get some much-needed rest.
