Description Of Services
These are the services currently offered by CJPS Home Care trained, responsible, professional, respectful, and experienced caregivers:
1. Activities of Daily Living
(ADLs) entails the most intimate and immediate needs of our clients, and require a high level of dignity, respect, and professionalism. We will assist with bathing, dressing, grooming, using the toilet, incontinence care, eating, walking, and transferring (moving into and out of a bed, a chair or a wheelchair).
2. Our caregivers are trained to gently motivate you to take care of your health
through medication reminders, monitoring your weight, monitoring your vital signs, and doing light exercises, if your physical condition allows it, such as walking and stretching to keep you active, fit and flexible. We can also handle cognitive impairment, as our caregivers are trained to specifically address challenging conditions such as dementia, memory impairments, and Alzheimer’s disease to ensure that you are safe, well cared for, and enjoy life. They understand that sometimes symptoms such as confusion, stress or anxiety can be the result of infections or medications and are not always initiated by long-term cognitive dysfunction. Our care attendants remain alerts and note changes in behaviors, so that actions may be taken, based on the Plan of Care. We have a team of compassionate individuals reviewing any issues, so that we can contact a loved one or your physician if required.
3. Meal preparation, delivery and administration
. We prepare meals with the assistance of the best caterers in Arizona to be nutritious, respectful of medical, dietary, religious or other preferences. In other words, your meals are 100% tailored to your needs and desires. We think of meals as an enjoyable time that brighten your day, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner. Once again, we cater 100% to your needs by having you choose from an extensive menu, and a calendar of which days and times you wish to get your meal. If you require assistance in taking these meals, our caregivers are able and willing to help with this, sometimes challenging, task. Individualized menus are created as part of your Plan of Care and delivered to you whenever needed. Our caregivers are also able to join you during these culinary experiences if that is your wish, for some added companionship. You can even invite your friends or family members over!
4. Active companionship
includes activities such as conversation, reading, playing card or board games, doing crafts, and even reminiscing about fond memories through pictures or home movies. Companionship has been proven to be a very important part of home care, for your intellectual, emotional, and psychological well-being, as well as reducing a feeling of isolation. These activities are customized to your background, and interests. Our caregivers are trained to understand the type of activities, conversation, books, magazines, hobbies or entertainment that you enjoy most, and which are most beneficial to your well-being. Perhaps going with your caregiver outside the home is not always possible or comfortable for you. So, having a high quality meal at home, or doing homey activities are great options, and our caregivers are just terrific at providing such enjoyable entertainment. However, home care does not mean that you are stuck at home either. Whenever possible or appropriate, the Plans of Care often include outdoor activities, such as walking in the park, meeting a friend for lunch, going to a movie, or attending a religious service. Being able to attend special interest events, your grand-daughter’s birthday party, your grand-son’s graduation or weddings can have a huge positive impact on your life.

7. Respite Care
is care that is provided to relieve family caregivers for a few hours to several days to give them an occasional break from daily caregiving responsibilities. If you are a caregiver yourself, for a friend, a spouse or another family member, we are happy to be your backup. Whether you need some time off, are sick, or have to go out of town, you can have the peace of mind that we will take very good care of your loved one during this time. We try to be very responsive to short notice assignments, and we understand that respite care is often temporary. Regardless, the quality of care remains the same so that you do not worry about who is stepping in your shoes – even if it is just for meal preparation, cleaning, or companionship.
8. Post Hospital Discharge Care
after surgery, a disease, a heart attack, a stroke, a broken hip, or the birth of a child is often a challenge. Coming home is such a reward – yet, the daily activities can be overwhelming at first, and we can make your recovery better and quicker by removing the stress of day-to-day chores and activities by lending you a hand. All our programs are customized to your specific needs. Whether you need to be driven to the hospital for follow-up visits, need help with paperwork or prescriptions, taking care of other family members, feeding or walking your pet, or cleaning your home, you can always count on us.

A Plan of Care is developed with each and every client, and in these instances when chronic care is needed, we emphasize the medical needs aspect of the care.
