Frequently Asked Questions About Home Care Services & GlenCare

Hopefully, you now have a basic understanding of home health care and have been introduced to the various levels of home care services offered at GlenCare.

 

Here are a few more questions we are commonly asked.

 

How do you know the level of care needed?

We encourage you to understand the different care level options, and hopefully, the descriptions above will be helpful when it comes to GlenCare. If you’re just starting to realize that more help is needed, keep in mind that these needs will only increase. Unless you and your family are willing to take on more caregiving roles yourself in the future, it would be best to begin looking for alternatives through research and talking to professionals and friends. Our team at GlenCare can also assist you with health assessments, home safety tests, and offer recommendations for care levels.

 

Who benefits from home health care services?

Both the aging individual and their family benefit from home health care services. The individual benefits from the care, support, and attention. The family benefits from the peace of mind of knowing a professional is caring for their loved one.

 

Given our current national health crisis, isn’t it best to avoid healthcare workers in my home?

As GlenCare’s director best explains, “Of course there are risks in continuing to have a home health worker come and go from your home, but that doesn’t mean you should not get the help you need. Just as getting groceries or even ordering them online has slight risks, the benefits far outweigh the potential risks. Pandemics cause worries of exposure to germs and the coronavirus, but home health workers are some of the best people to interact with because they’re already trained in minimizing risk for the people they care for.”

 

Do I have to live at The Glenview in order to take advantage of the home care services of GlenCare?

No! GlenCare serves clients who live in The Glenview, of course, but also clients throughout Collier and Lee counties and in the Naples area.

 

What costs can I expect for home health care services?

As a general rule, the cost of home care services is specific to what the client needs and wants. At GlenCare, experienced and professional case managers work closely with clients to help determine needs and develop a home care plan. Consultation and resources are available upon contact.

The Impact of FTRI Specialized Phones: Enhancing Communication for Floridians

Since 1991, Florida Telecommunications Relay, Inc. (FTRI) has improved the lives of Floridians experiencing hearing loss and speech impairments, through its specialized telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program (EDP). Established by Floridas Telecommunications Access Systems Act (TASA) in response to the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, FTRIs EDP oers an array of devices designed to bridge communication gaps.  Per TASA, a monthly 7-cent surcharge on landline phone bills covers the cost of FTRI distributed equipment, and the Florida Relay Service.  By providing equipment at no cost to consumers, FTRI is empowering individuals to lead more independent lives while remaining connected to the world. Let's take a look at several FTRI specialized devices and explore some heartwarming client stories that illustrate their profound impact on everyday lives.   Understanding FTRI Specialized Phones   FTRI specialized equipment caters to a range of communication needs. The devices include amplified phones, cell phone amplifiers, captioned telephones, text telephones (TTYs), and alerting devices. Each type is engineered to address specific needs:   1.     Amplified Phones: These phones are equipped with volume controls that can amplify sound significantly, up to 50 decibels, making it easier for individuals with hearing loss to understand conversations. They also feature tone settings, loud speakerphones, back-lit buttons, and loud ringers.2.     Cell Phone Amplifiers: Amplifiers use Bluetooth technology to wirelessly   pair with smart phones (Android, iPhone).  These portable, rechargeable devices allow a user to enjoy many of the same features found on standard amplified phones, such as volume and tone controls, hearing aid compatibility, and loud speakerphones.   3.     Captioned Telephones:  These devices display real-time captions of the conversation on a large screen, helping those with severe hearing loss to  read what the other party is saying.  Screens can be customized to a users preference, and call transcripts can be saved for future review.   4.     Text Telephones (TTYs): TTYs allow individuals with hearing or speech impairments to communicate via typed messages.   5.     Alerting Devices: These include flashing lights and loud ringers to alert individuals to incoming calls.   Transformative Client Stories   Jack and His Amplified Phone   Jack, a 75-year-old retired teacher, began experiencing hearing loss a few years ago. As his hearing deteriorated, he found it increasingly difficult to keep up with phone conversations, particularly with his grandchildren who live out of state. The frustration of missing out on these precious interactions led him to seek help from FTRI.   Upon receiving the Clarity XLC8, John noticed an immediate improvement. The adjustable volume and tone controls allowed him to customize each call. For the first time in years, he could clearly hear his grandchildren's voices. The device not only restored his ability to communicate, but also brought immense joy back into his life, through an improved connection with his loved ones.   Dave and his Cell Phone Amplifier   Like so many other Floridians, Dave disconnected his landline years ago.  He relied on his iPhone to make all his phone calls. Over time, however, he found himself using texting to avoid making calls whenever possible, because the iPhones volume was simply not loud enough for him to hear conversations clearly.   Daves daughter reached out to FTRI with questions about the Clarity XLCgo Cell Phone Amplifier, hoping it might be easy enough for her father to operate.  Both father and daughter were delighted to learn that the XLCgo connects to smart phones by Bluetooth quite easily, and is designed to be used both at home and on the go.  Once Dave had paired his iPhone to the XLCgo and realized he could once again enjoy conversations over the phone, there was no looking back for him.   Maria and Her Captioned Telephone   Maria, a 62-year-old librarian, was diagnosed with profound hearing loss, which made phone conversations nearly impossible.  This posed a significant challenge in her life, where communicating over the phone was essential for both personal and professional reasons.  Feeling isolated and frustrated, Maria turned to FTRI for a solution.   FTRI provided Maria with a captioned telephone.  This device transformed her ability to communicate. The real-time captions allowed her to read conversations, ensuring she could understand every word spoken.  Saving call transcripts for future reference became routine for her, especially for calls with her doctor to discuss medications. The captioned phone improved her life by restoring her sense of independence, safety, and competence.   Sam and His TTY Device   Sam, a 45-year-old software developer, was born with a severe speech impairment. Communicating over the phone was always a daunting task for him, often requiring the assistance of a family member or colleague. This dependency made Sam feel self-conscious and restricted his ability to handle personal and professional matters independently.   FTRI introduced Sam to a TTY device and the Florida Relay Service, which revolutionized his communication experience.  The TTY allowed Sam to type his messages, which were then converted into voice for the person on the other end of the line by the Relay Service.  Likewise, he received typed responses that he could read. This device gave Sam the autonomy he craved, enabling him to manage personal communications without assistance. The TTY device empowered   Sam, boosting his confidence and fostering a greater sense of independence. The Broader Impact of FTRIThe stories of Jack, Dave, Maria, and Sam are just a few examples of how FTRI specialized phones are transforming lives across Florida. By providing these devices at no cost, FTRI is removing financial barriers that might otherwise prevent individuals from accessing essential communication tools. This initiative is fostering inclusivity, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their impairments, can stay connected with the world around them. Moreover, FTRI's eorts extend beyond just providing devices. The organization also oers training and support to help users get the most out of their specialized phones. This comprehensive approach ensures that individuals are not only equipped with the necessary tools but are also confident in using them eectively. To learn more about FTRIs Equipment Distribution Program, visit www.ftri.org, or call 800-222-3448.

As someone new to the profession, you are embarking on an exciting career journey to make a meaningful impact on the lives of others. However, the first 100 days for new professional caregivers can be demanding, making it essential for them to find ways to manage workplace challenges as they present. What follows are survival tips and strategies every new professional caregiver should include in their 100-day strategy.New Professional Caregivers Face These ChallengesWhile even the most experienced caregivers face challenges that include physical ailments, compassion fatigue, and maintaining a work-life balance, those new to the profession are more likely to struggle with these issues:Emotional StressOne of the most significant challenges for new caregivers is coping with the emotional stress that comes with the job. Providing care for individuals who are sick, elderly, or disabled can be emotionally taxing, especially when faced with their pain, suffering, or deteriorating health.Lack of ExperienceMany new caregivers enter the profession with limited or no prior experience. This lack of experience can make it challenging to handle the various tasks and responsibilities that the job requires, from administering medications to providing personal care.Time ManagementProfessional caregivers must often juggle multiple tasks and responsibilities within a limited timeframe. Managing time effectively isnt always easy for new caregivers, especially when they are still learning the ropes.MiscommunicationWhile effective communication is essential in any profession, new caregivers often struggle to communicate effectively with patients, their families, and other healthcare professionals. Miscommunication can lead to misunderstandings, mistakes, and conflicts that can impact the quality of care provided.BurnoutCaregiving is a demanding profession that requires physical, emotional, and mental stamina. New caregivers may be at risk of burnout if they do not prioritize self-care and find healthy ways to cope with the stresses of the job.Survival Tips for New Professional Caregivers in Cape CoralFortunately, navigating caregiving challenges during the first three to four months on the job is possible by taking the right steps. As a new caregiver, heres what to include in your 100-day strategy:Find a MentorOne of the best ways to overcome the challenges of being a new caregiver is to seek mentorship from experienced colleagues. Once under their watchful eye, a mentor can provide guidance, support, and valuable insights to help you grow and develop in your role.Prioritize Self-CareTaking care of yourself is essential for providing quality care to others. Prioritize self-care by getting plenty of sleep, eating healthy, exercising regularly, and participating in activities that help you relax and recharge.Stick to a RoutineFollowing a daily routine can help you stay organized and manage your time effectively. Creating a schedule for tasks like medication administration, personal care, and meal preparation will help ensure you can meet your clients needs efficiently.Polish Your Communication SkillsEffective communication is a prerequisite for providing quality care.

Show empathy, respect, and compassion in your interactions, and be open to feedback and collaboration.Practice Self-ReflectionTake time to reflect on your recent experiences, challenges, and successes as a caregiver. Self-reflection can help you identify areas for improvement, set growth and development goals, and celebrate your achievements along the way.In conclusion, the first 100 days as a new professional caregiver can be both demanding and rewarding, with growth and learning opportunities galore.

As a fresh career alternative, these are some of the advantages of working in the rapidly growing home care field:Scheduling FlexibilityJob flexibility is one of the primary advantages of working in home care. Unlike traditional caregiving settings, in-home caregivers have more control over their schedules. This scheduling flexibility can help minimize stress by allowing caregivers to balance their personal and professional lives more effectively. While choosing between part-time, full-time, or flex hours, caregivers can work shifts that best suit their needs, promoting a better work-life balance.Meaningful RelationshipsAnother significant benefit is the one-on-one nature of home care. While assisting clients in the comfortable surroundings of home, caregivers can build a strong rapport and develop a deep connection with clients and their families. This long-term care approach helps alleviate stress by fostering a heightened sense of purpose and fulfillment as caregivers witness firsthand the positive impact they have on their clients lives.Personalized CareAdditionally, being an in-home caregiver typically involves a more specialized and focused approach to caregiving. Unlike other settings where caregivers tend to have a wide range of responsibilities, home care allows caregivers to focus on specific tasks tailored to each clients unique needs. This care specialization can help minimize stress by allowing caregivers to develop expertise in specific areas and feel more confident in their abilities.Professional Growth and DevelopmentThere are many opportunities for in-home caregivers to enhance their skills and knowledge. Home care providers offer training programs, workshops, and certifications that help caregivers stay updated on best practices and improve their caregiving techniques. Caregivers can also choose to specialize in different areas, including dementia care, hospice care, and geriatrics.Job SecurityFinding a job when youre a new caregiver can be stressful. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the demand for home care workers will remain high for at least the next 7 to 8 years, making it a virtually recession-proof occupation.While it still has challenges, many caregivers are now choosing to work in the dynamic home care field while supporting the needs of clients and their family caregivers for these reasons.

Foolproof your Home: Senior Safe Strategies

As our loved ones age, ensuring their safety and well-being becomes a top priority. For many seniors, the desire to age gracefully in the comfort of their own homes is strong. However, as homes age with them, they may pose various risks and challenges. In this comprehensive guide, we'll explore foolproof strategies to make your home safe for seniors, enhancing their independence and well-being.Understanding the Importance of Senior SafetyAging comes with its own set of challenges, including decreased mobility, vision impairments, and other health concerns. It's essential to create a safe living environment that addresses these challenges and minimizes the risk of accidents and injuries. By prioritizing senior safety, we can help our loved ones maintain their independence and quality of life.Introducing Aging in PlaceAging in Place is a concept that emphasizes the ability for seniors to remain in their own homes as they age, rather than moving to assisted living facilities or nursing homes. This approach allows seniors to maintain their sense of independence and familiarity with their surroundings, promoting overall well-being and happiness.Identifying Home HazardsBefore implementing safety measures, it's crucial to identify potential hazards in the home. Common hazards for seniors include slippery floors, poor lighting, cluttered walkways, and inaccessible bathrooms. By conducting a thorough home safety assessment, we can pinpoint areas that require attention and make necessary modifications to improve safety.Essential Home ModificationsOnce hazards have been identified, it's time to implement modifications to enhance senior safety. These modifications may include:Installing grab bars in bathrooms and near stairs to prevent fallsAdding non-slip flooring and mats in high-traffic areasImproving lighting throughout the home to reduce the risk of trips and fallsInstalling handrails and ramps for easier mobilityLowering countertops and cabinets to make them more accessibleUpgrading bathroom fixtures to include features such as walk-in showers and raised toiletsBy making these modifications, we can create a safer and more accessible living environment for seniors, allowing them to navigate their homes with confidence and ease.Leveraging Technology for SafetyIn addition to physical modifications, technology can also play a crucial role in enhancing senior safety. Smart home devices such as motion sensors, doorbell cameras, and medical alert systems can provide added security and peace of mind for both seniors and their caregivers. These technologies can help monitor for potential emergencies, provide assistance in case of falls or accidents, and allow for remote monitoring of the home.TruBlues Senior Safe SolutionsAt TruBlue, we understand the importance of senior safety and independence. That's why we offer a range of services specifically designed to make homes safer and more accessible for seniors. From home assessments and modifications to ongoing maintenance and support, we're here to help seniors age in place with confidence and peace of mind.Taking Action for Senior SafetyEnsuring senior safety in the home requires careful planning, assessment, and implementation of foolproof strategies. By identifying hazards, making necessary modifications, leveraging technology, and partnering with trusted experts like TruBlue, we can create a safe and supportive environment that allows seniors to age in place with dignity and independence. With the right approach and support, we can make our homes safer and more comfortable for our aging loved ones, ensuring their well-being and happiness for years to come.
