Complete Home Assessment and Follow-Up Care Coordination
Amada Senior Care of Birmingham is pleased to offer the services of our Geriatric Care Manager, who is one of only five certified GCMs in the state of Alabama. Our Geriatric Care Manager conducts a thorough and complimentary in-home assessment for each Amada Birmingham client. As a senior care specialist, our Geriatric Care Manager can make recommendations for any needed home modifications or durable medical equipment. The Geriatric Care Manager also helps clients and their families with medication management and collaborates closely with our healthcare referral partners to maintain continuity of care.
The Caregiver Manager on the Amada Birmingham care team reviews all client assessments and ensures that caregivers are fully informed and have everything necessary to meet all client needs during each shift. We invest heavily in continuing education for and mentoring of our caregivers since it is always our goal at Amada Birmingham to exceed your expectations in receiving the highest quality in-home care.
To that end, our dedicated Client Coordinator routinely follows up on every Amada Birmingham client to confirm that exceptional care has been provided. The Client Coordinator also is in regular communication with clients and their families to keep care needs records updated as circumstances evolve. As a client and thus member of the Amada Family, you can consider Amada Birmingham as your one-call resource with an entire caregiving team whenever you need us.
Diet and Nutrition Assessment
As part of our commitment to helping seniors manage their health, the care team at Amada Birmingham seeks to join efforts with a senior’s nutritionist or healthcare professional. Because of their training, Amada caregivers understand the importance of following the nutrition plan set forth by the senior client’s doctor or healthcare professional. As an example, they understand that helping a senior client diagnosed with diabetes follow a prescribed diet may reduce the senior’s risk of experiencing a hypoglycemic crisis.
The Amada caregiving team will take the initiative to check what kinds of foods are in the refrigerator and cupboards, then assist the senior client in stocking up on healthy foodstuff as outlined in the diet plan. Amada caregivers also are skilled in helping seniors prepare and eat meals at scheduled times in adherence to the senior’s nutrition plan.
Outside-the-Home Assistance and Transportation
Senior clients and their families can depend on Amada Birmingham for support and assistance outside the home, including transportation, errands and shopping. We can help senior clients get to their doctor’s appointment, dialysis treatment or physical therapy session. We’re also available to assist clients who need a hand with picking out their own groceries, running errands, visiting the beauty parlor, or enjoying a restaurant meal.
Amada Birmingham caregivers carry a valid driver’s license, possess a stellar driving record, have their own personal car insurance as well as Amada Senior Care liability insurance. Our senior clients have the option to let an Amada caregiver drive the client’s vehicle or the caregiver’s own vehicle – either way, they are covered and in safe hands. With the support of a trained and compassionate Amada caregiver, seniors can enjoy time outside their home, participate in outdoor activities and get the services and home goods they need.
Depend on Amada Birmingham’s home care expertise and let us help with all the little things that make life easier to manage. Please call 205-208-9466 today to speak to one of our senior care advisors.
