Shannon Private Home Care provides a full range of personal services tailored to meet your specific needs.

 
Respite Care
Being a caregiver is a responsibility that can be rewarding but can also consume a great deal of physical, mental, and emotional energy. Respite offers a much needed time out for a family caregiver to have some "me time". We offer flexible respite care for family caregivers so they can get a good night's sleep and/or maybe a weekly day of two off.  Give yourself a break, call Shannon Private Home Care.
 

 
Out-patient/Post-op Services
Having an eye lasik or cataract surgery, cosmetic surgery or any other ambulatory procedure? Call Shannon Private Home Care. Our caregiver will drive you to and pick you up from the clinic, observe you for any complications, help you with your personal needs, cook for you, make sure you take your medications on time, and/or run errands for you to maintain a stress free balance in the recovery environment.
 

 
Hospital Sitter
Hospitals are constantly understaffed, and our caregivers give you the peace of mind that somebody is keeping an eye on your loved one around the clock. You deserve peace of mind.  Call Shannon Private Home Care!
 

 
Short Assistance care
A caregiver will come to the senior's residence for a flat fee at an agreed time. Available are 2 hour and 3 hour visits. This time can be used to assist the senior with transfers/ambulation, bathing/showering, shaving/oral hygiene, dressing, laundry/light housekeeping, medication reminders, prepare a meal, transportation to a doctor’s appointment, hairdresser, grocery shopping, run errands, etc.
 

 
24-hour Services
Shannon Private Home Care offers 24-hour service in which caregivers provide assistance whenever it is needed. However, it is important that the caregiver gets regular rest times and enough uninterrupted sleep at night. If we provide 24-hour care for 7 days a week, the primary caregiver works for 5 days and then a reliever will take over for the weekend. Twenty four hour care is the most cost effective care option available and ensures continuity of care for your loved one without disruption to the senior's daily routine.
 

 
Hourly Care
An hourly live-out caregiver will come to the senior's residence, hospital, nursing home or assisted living facility and assist her or him according to the personalized care plan and time frame agreed upon. The minimum is four hours per visit.
 

 
Medication Services - Clients who already receive personal care services may choose the services of a Licensed Nurse to pre-pour medication. A licensed nurse will pre-pour a client's medication in weekly pill containers for a 25-day period. A list of medications including over-the-counter medications will be provided to the physician for written authorization.
 

 
Shannon Private Home Care is flexible with your schedule. As you need more or less care, we will adjust your days and hours to accommodate you. Our services are available from just two hours a day up to twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. When you are having difficulty with your schedule, we have a staffing professional available twenty-four hours a day to assist you.
