Those of us who’ve called Lakewood home for any length of time can tell you: it’s bloomed into quite an impressive community, with such an incredible population growth that it was named by the 2010 Census as the fastest-growing town in NJ! And the senior population has represented quite a large chunk of that, with good reason: developing over the years from its previous beginnings as an iron foundry to its present bustling of shops, restaurants, and other fun, easily accessible venues.
At Hibernian Home Care, our Lakewood Home Care team knows the community inside out, and is always happy to provide the safe transportation and accompaniment services that allow seniors to fully explore the town. Many seniors love stopping in for a fresh-baked, kosher treat from Gelbstein’s Bakery, taking in a show at the beautiful Strand Theatre, or cheering on the Blue Claws at the ball field. We can leave the ideas completely up to the seniors in our care, or put together some suggestions for fun outing ideas. Either way, it’s guaranteed to be an adventure!
We also realize that many older adults in Lakewood are home bound or simply choose to remain at home over venturing out. Hibernian’s Lakewood Home Care services are customized to each senior’s particular needs and wishes, ensuring his or her comfort, safety and well-being. Below are just a few of the many ways we’re making life better for Lakewood seniors:
- Grocery shopping and running errands, such as picking up prescriptions
- Providing transportation to medical appointments and procedures, and ensuring the senior is settled back in at home afterwards
- Light housework, laundry and linens
- Cooking healthy meals according to each person’s tastes and prescribed dietary plan
- Personal care services, such as dressing, bathing, incontinence and toilet care, skin care, and more
- Assistance with ambulation and transfers
- Medication reminders
- Fall prevention
- Friendly companionship – playing cards and games, engaging in conversations, watching movies, working on puzzles, participating in exercise programs, etc.
- Helping care for pets and house plants
- And much, much more
Always respectful, warm and patient, the caregivers at Hibernian are available for as little as a few hours each day, to full-time, around-the-clock care, based on each senior’s particular needs; and we use that time fully to make sure life is enhanced to the fullest.
Meet the Hibernian Care Team
We understand that finding the perfectly matched caregiver is key to a senior’s comfort. That’s why we painstakingly screen, interview, background check, and get to know each caregiver well enough to feel confident in allowing them the privilege of serving our area’s older adults. We look for an innate quality of compassion – something that simply can’t be taught – and ensure that training and experience go hand in hand with their generous hearts, giving seniors and their families the trust and peace of mind they need and deserve.
