Why we are the right choice for your in-home care needs

"We are not a Franchise"

Via home care is owned and operated by Eda Anguiano, M.D. Throughout her 11 years living in the Bay Area she has selected top professionals within the healthcare industry to partner with in pursuit of her dream to enhance the lives of her clients by way of providing assistance in their daily routine. “My vision is to enhance life, without interruption to my client’s normal activities. By doing such, we then extend this comfort and security to their families. The number one benefit of working with a non-franchise care agency is that you, the client, have direct access with the final decision maker and owner at all times. Versus an owner that has to check-in with a long distance office.

ALZHEIMER'S & DEMENTIA CARE

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive disease that deteriorate memory and other important mental functions and is the most common cause of dementia. Dementia isn't a specific disease. Instead, dementia describes a group of symptoms affecting intellectual and social abilities severely enough to interfere with day-to-day life.

Our caregivers on the dementia team receive ongoing training to work with Alzheimer's and Dementia cases. People with Alzheimer's Disease cannot control what is happening to them. We strive to learn new ways to relate to the person with Alzheimer's.

Mental, social, and physical activities help maintain a person's health and well-being. Our caregivers engage with the individuals with mind-stimulating activities including taking walks, singing songs, reading, talking, telling stories, and doing puzzles.

LGBTQ

While many LGBT seniors have been out and vocal about their orientation, being placed in the care of individuals who may not be open to—or educated in dealing with—the LGBT community places them at greater risk for discrimination, isolation and abuse.

Home is often the only place that LGBT individuals feel comfortable.

The challenge in finding competent, compassionate, nondiscriminatory care lies in finding caregivers and agencies with the right attitude about caring for someone with a different sexual orientation.

“LGBT seniors have had to contend with home care agencies and caregivers that have refused care, provided substandard services, been abusive, or tried to convert them—a disrespectful and harmful action. They are less likely to report abuse to law enforcement or adult protective services agencies because they fear being “outed” by their caregivers.”

Via home care will

  • Provide staff training on how to engage with the LGBT community, including cultural competency courses.
  • Give seniors the opportunity to state their sexual orientation on applications.
  • Include “gender identity or expression” (or “gender identity”) and “sexual orientation” as protected classes, in addition to other federally-protected classes, in non-discrimination policies.

POST STROKE CARE

The transition home after a stroke can be a stressful one. Capabilities have diminished, sometimes quite substantially so that significant assistance is needed. Our goal is to assist our clients in regaining as much of those capabilities as possible. Our caregivers work in coordination with our clients' doctors and therapists to support consistent physical, mental, and nutritional programs prescribed. We can also recommend other professionals after our clients home health benefits have run out.

Give us a call and we can explain how we work with stroke clients to maintain and improve their quality of life.
