Gauthier Family Home Care exists to provide options for our clients to retain their independence in their own homes, improve their quality of life and support their extended families. We will accomplish that by providing compassionate, professional caregivers who will nurture, stimulate, and cater to each client’s specific needs without fail.

Client-centric Home Care Focused on Your Specific Needs
Assist with activities of daily living (ADLs)
These are the essential personal functions that we are used to performing every day. They can include bathing, oral care, and hair care along with toileting and dressing/undressing.
Provide medication reminder and queues
We can remind the client to take their medications as prescribed and watch for any unwanted or even dangerous side effects. We CAN NOT administer any medications.
We can assist by doing laundry, making the bed, cleaning out the refrigerator, and putting away groceries and other “light duty” chores. This does not include any climbing, lifting or moving of heavy objects, any yard work, or home repairs.
Light meal assistance and preparation
Our Caregivers can assist with healthy meal planning, grocery shopping, and preparation of meals as well as provide clean up after meals.
Ambulation and transferring assistance
We can safely assist clients with walks outside for exercise and fresh air, including wheel-chair bound clients being safely transferred from bed to chair, chair to wheel-chair, and wheel-chair to car.
This can include accompanying the Client on doctor visits, to the bank, post office, hair or nail salon, or to the library or local senior center to visit with friends.
Help the Client keep in touch with family and friends via phone, email, or even video chat. Caregivers can engage in conversation, read aloud from a newspaper or books, or enjoy a classic or newly released movie with client. We can also suggest new activities which may bring the Client enjoyment. And sometimes just being there helps and provides a sense of security.
