Touching Angels in home care assures that your loved one's current symptoms are monitored and any new complications are identified immediately.
Whether in the home or in a facility, Touching Angels caregivers can provide your loved one with the one-on-one attention they deserve. A gentle touch and a soft voice offer reassurance to dementia and Alzheimer's patients. Our staff is specially trained to recognize the challenges that are presented to clients and families dealing with these conditions.
We work with clients and families to develop end of life plans that include the wishes of your loved one, such as: being surrounded by family photos, listening to their favorite music, and scheduling quiet visits with family and friends. Many clients appreciate having someone there to relive their favorite memories with.
Trustworthy companionship can be key to living a full life when challenged with mental health issues. Compassionate assistance from and understanding caregiver can give an extra degree of comfort and confidence to clients dealing with depression or other mental health issues.
Clients stay active and engaged in their environment with the helping of a Touching Angels caregiver.

We can assist with daily hygiene and medication maintenance.
Parkinson's is the result of damage, deterioration, or loss of nerve cells in the part of the brain called the substantia nigra, which produces dopamine. A reduction in dopamine production can result in slow or abnormal movement in the body, such as tremors. Symptoms appear when about 80% of the nerve cells in the substantia nigra have been damaged, and include:
- rigid muscles
- slow movement
- difficulty writing
- poor balance
- difficulty speaking
There are ways to make life with Parkinson's more manageable, though, and Touching Angels can help. Our caregivers can assist with:
- paying bills
- communicating with family and doctors
Having help with daily activity reduces stress and improves the quality of life for those with Parkinson's. Family members gain peace of mind when they know their loved ones are watched over and cared for.
Touching Angels caregivers can provide extra support for temporary needs such as:
- transitioning from hospital to home
- rehabilitation from falls and accidents that temporarily impact mobility
- recovery from stroke
- regaining wellness after cancer treatments
Strokes occur when there has been an interruption of the flow of oxygen to the brain. Those recovering from stroke face a multitude of challenges when they return home:
- partial paralysis
- difficulty with speech
- muscle weakness
- memory loss
- mood change
- loss of fine motor skills
Proper care following a stroke is essential to recovery. Stroke patients can return home and begin to resume their lives with a specially trained Touching Angels caregiver. Our caregivers are experienced in the specific needs of stroke survivors, including:
- assistance with bathing and dressing
- medication management
- identifying and obtaining any specialized equipment
- recovering mobility
- watch for signs that will help prevent another stroke from occurring.
We work with family caregivers on strategies to implement between Touching Angels visits and together we help the survivor rebuild their function and regain their joy in life.
