Caregiving Redefined

CareProvide is designed by clients and caregivers for clients and caregivers.

Co-founders, Jennifer Cua, and Jill Kidwell have been in their clients’ and caregivers’ shoes. As a caregiver, Founder Jennifer Cua, RN worked for several home care agencies before deciding to start her own. As a client, co-Founder Jill Kidwell hired several agencies and private caregivers before deciding to partner with Jennifer to create a new kind of agency with a focus on healthy living, independence, well-being, fulfillment, and choice.

Together they designed the I-N-S-P-I-R-E-D™ framework their agency is built on.

Our goal is to help seniors age in place with as much vitality, good health, happiness and dignity as possible. There is no question that seniors who exercise regularly, eat healthy meals, focus on mental agility and sustain social ties are more likely to age successfully. And there is growing evidence that even when seniors do encounter physical and mental challenges, they will benefit from inspired care designed to help them age well.

Inspired Care

Our mission is to provide inspired care for a meaningful life.

Our goal is to help all of our clients experience a stronger sense of personal fulfillment

We bring ideas to inspire each day’s activities

We engage the mind to support cognitive health

We do what brings your loved one joy—read, play cards, garden, bake, go fishing, call their grandchildren, participate in the arts, take a nature walk

We help your loved one sustain social ties—take them to lunch with friends, to church, or out to the movies

Our I-N-S-P-I-R-E-D™ Framework influences every aspect of our services.

INSPIRATION LAB. The best caregivers are empathetic, attentive, compassionate, trustworthy and dependable. Inspired caregivers take the profession to a higher level and help to make seniors’ everyday life more engaging, more comfortable, more satisfying.

CareProvide’s Caregiver Inspiration Lab equips our caregivers with strategies and methods to help their clients thrive using our I-N-S-P-I-R-E-D™ approach. The Lab provides monthly training sessions, creates a caregiver community to facilitate interaction among caregivers and publishes weekly caregiver tips and ideas for inspired care.

NUTRITION. Research tells us that eating the right diet is an important aspect of positive aging. Diet, combined with exercise, has tremendous benefits and can even improve cognition.

We collaborate with our clients to create meal plans that incorporate their favorite foods into a nutritious diet taking into account special needs such as diabetes, hypertension, Parkinson’s Disease.

SAFETY. As more of us age-in-place, we need to focus on ways to improve the safety of our own homes. One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year, according to the National Council on Aging. Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency for a fall, every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall. And, seniors who suffer from Alzheimer’s require a safe and controlled environment as they become more disoriented and wander.

Creating a safe environment requires a holistic approach. Our caregivers proactively focus on keeping your loved one safe from falls, helping them move safely from chair to bed to shower, from one place in the home to another. And they will help to arrange the space in their homes to minimize safety hazards. We offer an in-home safety assessment and can propose strategies to improve the home environment with grab bars and other assistance devices and suggest installation of locks and alarms to create a controlled environment for seniors who are prone to wandering.

PERSONAL FULFILLMENT. Numerous studies show that seniors with a sense of purpose are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s, mild cognitive impairment, disabilities, heart attacks and stroke. And, it’s not too late for seniors to find meaning in life. According to Patricia Bolye, a leading researcher in the area of aging, “Meaning can come from very simple things like taking care of a pet, working in the garden, being kind to a neighbor. A purpose in life can arise from learning a new thing, accomplishing a new goal, working together with other people or making new social connections when others are lost.”

Our caregivers, keenly aware of the positive impact of personal fulfillment on your loved one’s well-being, work with them to discover what fulfills them and then help them to do the things that are most meaningful to them.

INDEPENDENT. For many seniors maintaining independence and control over their daily lives is essential to their sense of self and quality of life. Staying at home, keeping community connections and being in a familiar place make all the difference.

To help your loved one retain their independence, our caregivers are trained to do things “with” instead of “for” them.

RESILIENT. Happiness, joy and contentment are key ingredients in your loved one’s resiliency, their ability to handle stress and age well. Scientific studies have been finding that happiness can make our hearts healthier, our immune systems stronger, and our lives longer. And happiness is a skill that can be learned. The science-backed Happier Method, created by Nataly Kogan, is based on three principles:
• Happiness and emotional well-being are not extras — they are the foundation for being your best self and doing your best work while navigating life’s ups and downs.
• To truly thrive, you need to learn to embrace the full range of human emotions, both negative and positive.
• Happiness is a skill, not just a feeling, and you can strengthen that skill with practice!

We train our caregivers on strategies to help your loved one hone their ‘happiness skills.’. They take the time to learn their clients’ passions and help them do more things that bring them joy.

EXERCISE. Exercise and movement are vital for everyone and especially for seniors. It improves your balance. This prevents falls. It gives you more energy. It prevents or delays diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, or osteoporosis. It can improve your mood and fight off depression. It may improve how your brain works.

If the client’s doctors approve them for exercise, our caregivers help with light exercise designed to help with endurance, strength, balance and flexibility. And, we offer in-home assessment and instruction from a highly trained restorative and movement yoga instructor.

DIGNITY. Among the most important human needs is the desire for respect and dignity. That need doesn’t change when a person becomes ill or disabled. In fact, having a sense of pride in oneself, self-esteem, self-worth may even grow stronger as your loved one faces the challenges of aging.

Our caregivers demonstrate core values of empathy, compassion, trustworthiness and dependability and dedication. Importantly, they understand how critical it is to listen to your loved one’s concerns, ask them for their opinions and let them know they are important. They involve your loved one in as many decisions as possible. They include your loved one in the conversation and do not talk about them as though they are not there.

Getting Started

At CareProvide, we recognize that no two clients are the same and that no single client’s needs remain the same. Needs change. Our clients may need less help, more assistance or different care altogether.

We take the time, upfront, to learn as much as we can about our clients’ needs. After our initial interview we craft a customized care plan and select the caregiver that best meets their needs.

Choice

Finding the right fit between you and our caregiver is paramount. We select our caregivers carefully. You have the opportunity to interview the caregivers we identify and assess them for fit.

Day one orientation

We introduce our caregivers to your loved one and orient them to your situation. We go the extra mile to help establish a strong relationship between you and our caregivers.

Hands-on

We remain involved. Each day for the first week, we will visit your loved one to review our caregiver’s relationship with them. And, we don’t stop there. We remained actively involved and touch base weekly.

Inspired care plan

Each day, we record our activities and note successes, opportunities and challenges and suggest ideas to inspire the next day’s activities
