“It was much easier for me to be at work each day knowing that my mother was in such good hands.”
Helping our patients stay in their own homes with maximum independence, security and optimal health is Trimark’s goal. Unlike institutional care, where dignity and self-determination may seem threatened, at-home care offers psychological benefits that can help patients improve and even thrive. With proper medical attention, many problems can be managed or resolved more effectively and less expensively at home. Even in the case of Alzheimer’s disease, providing daily structure can extend the early, less debilitating stage for a longer period of time to keep the patient out of a nursing home.
Trimark’s flexible services are designed to meet the full range of at-home healthcare and personal needs- from a few minutes a day or a few hours a week to round-the clock assistance and total care management.
Some patients need temporary assistance as they recover from an illness, fracture or stroke. Or perhaps a family caregiver wants time away without worry or guilt. Others need a longer term approach for managing permanent disabilities or chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer or heart disease. More intensive services and regular monitoring may be required to cope with Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases in the home setting.
When home is in a retirement community, Trimark’s Shared Services enhance the programs of the community itself. Residents can maintain their active life styles with the assistance of Trimark’s on-site nursing assistants.
