Care during & after surgery or injury
If you are scheduled for surgery, have already had surgery, or are injured and need extra help during your recovery- I offer short term care services. Oftentimes we need extra support and help both during and after surgery. I offer support at the hospital and/or at home. I provide physical and emotional support: advocating for you in the hospital, supplying extra comfort measures and healthy food, assisting with physical therapy and exercise. I provide support for the entire family, as often spouses, children and parents are effected by their loved one's injury or illness.
CARE DURING PREGNANCY, BIRTH & POSTPARTUM DOULA SERVICES
If you need support during pregnancy, birth and after birth, I provide doula services. I meet with you before birth for whatever you might need: nutritional support, making a birth plan, understanding what questions to ask your doctor, or answering general questions your doctor has not answered. Basically, I tailor care to each person/family and their individual needs. I also attend hospital births, advocating in the hospital while providing physical and emotional support. And finally, I provide postpartum services including: breast feeding support, nutritional support, comfort measures and general supportive care for the family.
home Care for aging
I offer short term home care services for all stages of the aging process. If you yourself are aging and need a little extra help, I provide basic practical care services tailored to your individual needs. If you have an aging family member living with you and you need to take a day off, or your regular care giver is unavailable, I can fill in. I provide care across the spectrum: from the healthy in need of a little extra help to those receiving hospice care.
