August 5, 2008:
Petaluma, August 5, 2008 Sequoia Senior Solutions, Inc. the North Bay’s largest In-Home Care Provider, today announced the introduction of a new service aimed at assisting seniors in the transition home from hospital stays or out-patient surgery.
The new service, called “Welcome Home” provides professionally trained caregivers to accompany the senior home and provide up to a total of six hours of assisted care. This may include picking up prescriptions, providing a warm meal, light housekeeping, and companionship during this delicate time.
“People are often discharged from hospitals with the recommendation that they also obtain assisted care, either from family members or from professionals, for the first few days that they are home” said Gabriella Ambrosi, President and CEO of Sequoia Senior Solutions. “Many time, however, they are reluctant to do so because they feel uncomfortable committing to a long-term relationship. Our Welcome Home program should relieve this concern as the commitment is only for a fixed six-hour period.”
Of course, should the senior then determine that more assistance is needed, Sequoia Senior Solutions is able to provide care for as long as is needed. The Welcome Home Service is available for $160 for the initial six hour assignment.
For more information, contact Stanton Lawson, CFO of Sequoia Senior Solutions, at 707-763-6600.
