Non Senior Care Services
Before Mandy was born, Joe and Lois knew they had a special child with special needs. Mandy was diagnosed with Down Syndrome while Lois was still pregnant. But Mandy's condition has never affected her determined spirit and keen sense of independence. As she entered her twenties, it was this independence that allowed Joe and Lois to help their daughter to move into her own apartment a few blocks away. Mandy's parents knew that she needed a little more supervision and assistance than a typical young adult. They also knew that Mandy would become defiant if she felt her parents were checking on her too often. That's why Joe and Lois introduced Mandy to Erica.
Erica is a Right at Home caregiver that stops by Mandy's apartment to make sure that she doesn't need anything and that things are going well. Mandy loves Erica's visits. The two of them visit for a couple of hours every few days while Erica helps Mandy with things around the house or takes her shopping. The whole experience has strengthened the relationship between Mandy and her parents, as well.
Therapy Dog Program
The sight of a friendly dog visitor can make people smile. Most people love to pet a dog or visit with a cute little puppy. Not only are they a joy to see, their visits have some great benefits on the elderly. Research shows that therapy pets can help elderly who live in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, or short-term rehab to raise their spirits.
Reya Kuebler, Right at Home Somerset and Hunterdon Counties' certified therapy dog, and her handler Janet Kuebler are available for visits to seniors at home or in facilities upon request.
