Services and Benefits | Home Care

Wexner Home Care provides an array of services to meet the individual needs of our clients and families, enhancing life through a focus on safety, nutrition and fitness. Our services make it possible for those needing post-hospital care and older adults to stay safely at home, where they are in familiar surroundings and near family, friends and meaningful activities.

We will customize a plan to help you or someone you love achieve and maintain optimal health at home, and coordinate with other medical providers if needed.

The Right Fit

We know how important finding the right home care company is to your successful recovery and long-term well-being. That’s why we take the time to carefully screen and match each of our aides to your preferences for personality, skills, communication style, sense of humor and more.

 
We believe there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to home care. Every one of our clients is a unique individual with his or her own unique set of circumstances and sometimes getting along is simply a matter of “chemistry.”  Our focus is — and will always be — on finding the right help to meet your and your family’s individual needs.

Post-Hospital Care

Recovering from a hospitalization, illness or surgery can be challenging, especially if you live alone or will be on your own during the day. You might find you need help with everyday activities like getting dressed, fixing lunch or running a load of laundry. Wexner Home Care’s help allows you to focus on your recovery and get back to work and the things you enjoy.

 
We will coordinate with your skilled home care agency to support your physical therapy regimen and help you meet your goals. And our aides can assist with active range-of-motion activities.
 
Wexner Home Care can help when:
  • Your spouse works, you live alone or your family lives far away.
  • You can’t drive yourself to the supermarket or doctor appointments.
  • Housekeeping, including light cleaning and laundry, is too much of a challenge.
  • Planning and preparing meals is too physically demanding.
  • Properly caring for your pet becomes too difficult.

Benefits

Older adults who continue to live independently at home as they age – and out of institutional residential facilities – experience a number of health, social and financial benefits for themselves and their families. These benefits include:
 
The comforts of home: We all feel better when we are in familiar surroundings – relaxing in a favorite recliner, digging in the garden, drinking tea at the kitchen table, knowing every title on the bookcase. And being surrounded by family photos, vacation mementos and long-time neighbors and friends can help preserve memories and ward off loneliness.
 
One-on-one care: When a Wexner Home Care aide arrives at the door, he or she has only one goal – that you or your loved one receives 100 percent of his or her attention and quality care. Whether it is for just a few hours a day or around-the-clock care, your Wexner Home Care aide is completely focused on you and your needs.
 
Independence, confidence and comfort: Not only does the recovery process tend to be easier and faster in the calming familiarity of the home environment, with the help of Wexner Home Care you or your loved one has the control and ability to lead a meaningful, independent lifestyle. Our Home Care Team can help with everything from managing medications and supporting a physical therapy regimen to daily chores, meal preparation and grocery shopping.
 
Family support and participation: As a quality home care provider, Wexner Home Care is dedicated to more than providing professional caregiving for you or your loved one. Our Home Care Team is committed to keeping your family well informed and engaged in the decision making process.

Priority access: As a Wexner Home Care client, you automatically receive priority access to Wexner Heritage Village’s comprehensive network of senior healthcare and housing services – should the need arise. Wexner Heritage Village is central Ohio’s oldest and most trusted care provider and is backed by more than 60 years’ of proven success in caring for seniors.
 
Peace of mind: To open the door to Wexner Home Care is to welcome peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Even if you have the time, most people don’t have the training or physical ability to safely care for an older adult. Using a professional caregiver means you and your loved ones can feel secure in the home and are free to relax and enjoy your time together.
