Diabetic Management by Our Nurses
Diabetes is the 8th leading cause of death in the U.S. It is also the number 1 leading cause of kidney failure, lower limb amputations, and adult blindness.
TLC Private Home Care Nurses offer diabetic management within the assisted living facility and/or in the home.
Poor dexterity and poor eyesight make it very difficult for someone to monitor blood sugar and administer their own insulin. Our nurses can be available to take this over daily or as needed. This can allow the family peace of mind.

- Weekly skin assessment

Alzheimer's & Dementia Care
Day to day support for families and clients facing this most difficult disease and its challenges.
As Alzheimer's and Dementia progresses, the role of providing care for them changes as well. It can be one of the most difficult times a family may experience in their lives. Early on as the symptoms are mild, the primary caregiver may only need support. As the disease progresses and symptoms are more advanced the care can be demanding and overwhelming.
Our caregivers are trained in providing redirection, health changes, and necessary skills to preserve the dignity and quality of the life of your loved one.
Respite & Hospice Support
When a patient has transitioned to hospice, it is often a time of sadness and anxiety.
A chance to take a step back as a primary caregiver and enjoy the remaining time with loved ones is vital for both parties to feel safe and supported.
TLC Private Home Care specializes in the care of patients at the end of life from 4 hours up to 24 hours a day. Our CNAs and HHAs are experienced in hospice. They are the most caring, compassionate, and empathetic individuals. All our staff will show family members grace, humanity, and kindness until the end.
Our commitment is to make your experience with us the easiest and most comforting.
Sometimes all you need is company and a coffee companion. Let us be your friends to keep you company.
Companionship is the lifeblood of the human experience. It is joy shared in laughter and support during life's trials. Genuine companionship offers comfort, understanding and a sense of belongings. We could be sitting watching the boats together, going for coffee or shopping but, you will have someone with you to keep you company.
