Petaluma-based Sequoia Senior Solutions, the North Bay’s premier provider of in-home health care for seniors, began QuickCare, a very affordable service for those seniors who need just a little help in May,2011.
The first of its kind in this area, Sequoia Senior Solutions offers this quick assistance service to seniors living within the Petaluma city limits. QuickCare service can be provided for as little as 15 minutes and can cost as little as $7.50. Such services can include unloading the groceries from the car after shopping or even just dropping in for a quick medication reminder or a wellness check while a family member is out of town. It provides peace of mind for the family and is a great back-up for seniors beginning to find it difficult to perform one or more of their daily chores.
“Sometimes seniors know they need help, but are uncomfortable having someone in their home for long periods of time” says owner and CFO Stanton Lawson. “They may prefer to have someone drop by and help them with a specific chore or two, without committing to a four hour service, which is the minimum required by most home care agencies. QuickCare offers a convenient way to provide assistance to those who don’t yet have a great need but could certainly benefit from a little help.”
Lawson also points out that some seniors aren’t yet ready to admit they need help, and with just a quick “drop-in,” this is a great way to introduce them to the advantage, freedom, and reassurance that such assistance can provide in their lives.
Available currently to seniors living within the Petaluma city limits, QuickCare services can include: help moving things around the house, driving to appointments and incidental transportation, bathing assistance, light grooming, meal preparation, shopping, sorting and filing bills, and more.
QuickCare is also an ideal service also for seniors living in Independent or Assisted Living Facilities, who may need one-on-one assistance with bathing, getting to and from the dining area, or even just getting out of the facility to do some shopping or taking a drive in the country.
