Pacific Senior Care has helped my elderly parents with wonderful ladies. They have taken into account personalities and individual requests about their caregivers. Scheduling the hours needed was easy, too… When more care was needed they upped their game by bringing someone in with lots of experience with my parents’ particular needs. My parents and I couldn’t be happier with their care.

When your loved one needs care for longer hours, it is preferable they stay at home; Pacific Senior Care can provide compassionate caregivers to stay overnight. Our caregivers are available to help throughout the night. This option offers the client familiar surroundings of their home, preventing the need for a nursing home or facility.
Normally, 24 hour care service is provided to clients who have difficulty with daily activities due to aging or disabilities. You or your loved one can stay in your own homes, in accustomed surroundings, rather than living in a nursing home or assisted living.
Around the clock, 24 hour care is provided by two or three caregivers depending upon the circumstances and requirement of the client. Please call our office at 805-777-7090 for a detailed outline of this service. Our expert Care Manager will design a Custom Care Plan (CCP) to the needs of you or your loved one.

It’s so important to keep on a continuous routine once therapy is prescribed.

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, which can eventually lead to the decreased ability to carry out the simplest of daily tasks, such as personal hygiene, medication or eating meals. The onset of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia can be troubling and challenging for both the individual who suffers and for the family members.
Caring for your loved ones who have Alzheimer’s disease can be overwhelming. Families search for options including in home options or specialized nursing care facilities. Whatever the decision, our caregivers are ready to help. We provide non-medical Alzheimer patient care by compassionate caregivers, ranging from Respite Care to around-the-clock care, to help in their homes or nursing home.
Alzheimer and dementia care often includes many of our other services:
Arthritis is a disease that affects tissues that surround joints and other connective tissue. Typically, rheumatic conditions are characterized by pain and stiffness in and around one or more joints. The symptoms can develop gradually or suddenly. Certain rheumatic conditions can also involve the immune system and various internal organs of the body.
According to the Center of Disease Control, physical activities such as walking, bicycling, and swimming have many benefits for people with arthritis. Moderate activity can lead to less pain, better physical function, mental health, and quality of life.
At Pacific Senior Care, we create a custom care plan for your loved one’s individual needs so that they may enjoy activities they love and lead a healthy lifestyle. Our caregivers are trained to get your loved ones involved with moderate, low-impact physical activities, (as recommended by their doctor) to minimize the symptoms of arthritis. Whatever activities your loved ones love the most, our goal is to help them enjoy these activities as much as possible.
When one suffers from the arthritis disease and has trouble doing daily activities such as cooking, housekeeping, and grooming, it may result in other problems, such as personal hygiene, nourishment, and staying active. We can help in these areas by providing:
Respite care means “a short period of rest or relief” to family members who have been providing care to their loved ones. Every caregiver needs some time-off. Though providing care to your loved one is emotionally fulfilling, it can also take a toll on you. You may feel isolated, exhausted or perhaps overwhelmed. At Pacific Senior Care, we will provide a temporary relief and respite so that you can recharge mentally, physically and spiritually.
Our Respite Care for Family Caregivers Program will give you peace of mind when you take a holiday trip, cruise, attend a family occasion, or just want some time-off. We will custom design a Respite Care for Family Caregivers Program for your loved one’s specific needs. We are here to help for either a few hours a week, few days in a week or for several weeks at a time.
Everyone ages differently, but as we grow older, reflexes may slow down or we may have trouble hearing, remembering or comprehending the instructions of the doctor. You may also notice anxiety before a doctor’s appointment and reluctance in driving to the doctor office.
If you have witnessed any of these symptoms, it may be time for your loved one to have assistance as they may not be able to handle this alone. At Pacific Senior Care, our experienced caregivers are trained to provide enormous assistance so your loved ones follow a healthy life-style – emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
We can help you with:
Effective Communication – For healthy and wholesome care, it is important to have effective communication and follow-up with our client’s medical professionals. At Pacific Senior Care, our experienced caregivers are trained to ask direct and relevant questions for any health issues. For example; if your loved one is having diarrhea, instead of making a general question, “She is having diarrhea?” Our caregiver will ask the doctor specific questions such as, ”She is having diarrhea, should the medicine be changed?” or “Should she be on a different diet?” In addition to this, our caregiver will compassionately communicate with your loved one and assist in following the medical professional’s instructions.
Transportation – Our caregivers will safely drive to doctor’s appointment and back. They are licensed and insured to drive, even if you prefer they use your loved ones vehicle. They will also pick up medicine from the pharmacy.
Safety is our main concern, and we ensure all of our caregiver’s driving records with the DMV are thoroughly checked before they are hired. All of our caregivers not only carry their own personal insurance at all times, but are also insured with our corporate umbrella policy.
