Personal Care SERVICES
Signal Health Group's aides, companions, homemakers, and personal care attendants work in the places our clients call home. They are also available as private duty sitters to provide attentive care while you are in the hospital. Our home care staff see to the daily needs that keep people healthy, independent, and socially engaged. This can include assistance with transportation, important cleaning around the home, hands-on care such as assistance bathing, companionship, or supervision for parents with dementia. Signal Health Group clients have widely varied health and mental statuses and widely varying needs, but they all have one need in common: someone who is skilled, hard-working, and reliable.
Programs within Signal Health Group can include:
Companion Services include keeping the client comfortable and engaging the client in any number of activities, such as conversation, reading, writing, games, crafts, playing cards, walking, assist with entertaining, medication & appointment reminders, escort to appointments, visiting friends & neighbors, shopping, events, plays, and religious services.

We work with you to establish safe and more comfortable environments, trusting relationships and techniques to maximize independence for as long as possible for those with Alzheimer’s disease. Our specialized approach of encouragement and assistance helps family members cope with the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia illnesses.
HOME SUPPORT SERVICES
Signal Health Group is dedicated to your health, happiness, and peace of mind. Many of the services we include in ‘home support services’ are what other agencies would qualify as “heavy cleaning” and simply refuse to do. Others agencies also refuse to take care of your pets and plants. Signal Health Group knows all of these activities are important to your health and well-being, and that’s why we are happy to handle all of these tasks well.
Home Support Services include planning, cooking, and serving meals; baking for holidays and special occasions; general cleaning; vacuuming; dusting; washing floors; washing dishes; laundry; ironing; changing beds; defrosting refrigerators / freezers; cleaning ovens / stoves and china cabinets; caring for house plants; taking out garbage; oversee home deliveries and home maintenance; caring for pets including feeding, exercising, and cleaning.
