Welcome to our blog at OC In Home Care! Our caregivers will use this space to share helpful information, tips, and guides to help you learn about the benefits of home care as an alternative to assisted living for your loved one. As the Top Rated Local® home care agency serving families throughout Orange County and the surrounding areas, we consider it our duty to ensure that seniors are getting the elderly care services they need to live happy, peaceful lives. But before we dive into the non-medical home care services we provide, let us introduce ourselves!

About Our Orange County Home Care Agency

Since 2008, OC In Home Care has been helping the elderly live their daily lives in the comfort of their own home by providing non-medical home care services and genuine companionship. Our caregivers have years of experience providing non-medical home care services and are passionate about their role in improving the lives of seniors who prefer to live their remaining years at home. For us, home care isn’t just about helping clients bathe, dress, cook, run errands, and clean the house — it is about providing a helping hand and genuine companionship with the goal of helping others live a happy, fulfilling life. We love what we do at OC In Home Care, and that passion shows in the quality elderly care services we provide for each and every one of our clients.

When you choose OC In Home Care as your preferred home care agency in Orange County, we will provide you with a free initial assessment, during which we will meet with you and your loved one at their home to determine their unique needs. Our home care company is all about providing specialized home care for each of our clients, and this is our chance to get to know your family on a personal level before providing any in-home care services. Upon meeting you and your loved one, we will determine what kind of senior care services they require, what their ideal home care schedule is, and which of our caregivers is the best fit for them. OC In Home Care is licensed through the California Department of Social Services’ Home Care Services Bureau, so you can bet that we take all the steps necessary to provide the best services possible, beginning with the free in-person meeting and assessment.

Part of what makes our non-medical caregiver agency different from others in Orange County is that we provide this assessment before assigning a caregiver, whereas other home care companies do not always do this and sometimes don’t even allow your loved one to meet their caregiver before beginning the service. At OC In Home Care, we believe that it is incredibly important for clients to feel comfortable with their caregiver, so we do everything in our power to choose the right one, then make sure it is a good fit when we introduce them in person. The same goes for substitute caregivers — if your loved one’s caregiver is sick or goes on vacation, we will be in contact with you and your loved one to ensure that the substitute is a good fit as well before having them provide any home care services.

Assistance With Activities Of Daily Living

As a non-medical home care agency, we do not prescribe or administer medication for clients — rather, our caregivers provide assistance with regular activities of daily living. These include bathing and dressing, grooming and personal care, using the restroom, grocery shopping and meal preparation, house cleaning and laundry, and many other day-to-day tasks. Our caregivers also provide mobility and transfer assistance, such as helping them exercise, go up and down the stairs, and get to medical appointments. Though we do not administer medication, our caregivers help their clients remember when to take any prescribed medications and can provide individualized services like incontinence care and family respite care.

Genuine Companionship

At OC In Home Care, compassion and quality of service are at the heart of everything we do. Each of our caregivers has been carefully vetted through background checks, Home Care Aide registry checks, FBI clearance, and more. Once they have passed these checks and demonstrated their qualifications, we then select them based on their passion for helping others and their ability to provide genuine companionship. Our caregivers do more than help your loved one bathe, cook food, and use the restroom — they also engage in fun activities with them, such as doing puzzles, reading books, sharing life stories, and being a good listener. Genuine companionship is critical for a healthy caregiver-client relationship, as well as the client’s overall quality of life during their elderly years.

Alzheimer’s And Dementia Care

In addition to regular, non-medical home care services, our caregivers are also certified to provide dementia and Alzheimer’s care for elderly clients who are on the spectrum of memory disorders. We understand that it can be difficult to find a caregiver who is equipped to handle these kinds of clients, which is why we fill this void with a team of caregivers who specialize in these areas of senior care. Not only are our dementia caregivers educated in the stages of the disease and how it manifests itself in the daily lives of clients, but they are also trained on how to deal with the behaviors and create individualized dementia care plans. These plans are based on the unique personality of the client and consist of activities to help stimulate and enhance their memory.
