As seniors get older the mind and body tend to slow down and an illness or medical procedure can make it even tougher. Physical exercise and social contact can help improve one's overall well being and recuperative capabilities. Care Providers referred by Whitsyms, friends and relatives play an important support role by providing the basic human need of social contact, whether it be eating together, sharing the events of the day or by guiding them through gentle or passive exercise routines. A change of scenery by walking outside in the fresh air can enhance the positive effects of exercise. 1-877-382-6089 http://www.whitsyms.com

Getting in and out of a chair can be hard for individuals with a disability, depending on age, strength and flexibility. Assistance techniques for transfers can vary. Some people require a lot of assistance and assistive devices, such as a gait belt or a mechanical lift. Others need less assistance, but having a properly trained care provider is essential.
To promote the health, safety and proper functioning of the body's many systems, care providers are trained to move and place clients in the correct posture position. The results of proper transfer and positioning into beds and chairs helps to eliminate pressure areas on the skin, reduce muscle weakening and stiffening, and promotes proper breathing, digestion and elimination.

Care providers referred by Whitsyms are trained to help patients in and out of bed, chairs, cars, bathtubs and showers using safe transfer techniques.

Alzheimers and Dementia Care

As experts in senior care Whitsyms’ referred care providers improve the quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia while also helping their loved ones understand how the disease affects the patient’s behavior.
Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias can cause a person to act in different and unpredictable ways. Some individuals with Alzheimer’s become anxious or aggressive while others repeat certain questions and gestures. Many misinterpret what they see or hear. These types of reactions can lead to misunderstanding, frustration and tension, particularly between the person with dementia and the caregiver. It is important to understand that the person is not acting that way on purpose.

How are care providers screened?

Our pool of care providers are comprised of a diverse group of well trained, experienced, licensed and insured care providers, all of whom speak English. All referred care providers are screened according to Florida state law and the Agency for Healthcare Administration. We comply with the August 2010 Florida State Law (Florida Statute (F.S.), Chapter 435 and s. 408.809) requiring care providers to submit to a Level 2 FBI screening.
