GlenCare Home Care Agency Offers More Than Just In-Home Care

All Levels of Care—Whenever and Wherever It’s Needed

The Glenview at Pelican Bay has offered convenient services, resort-inspired amenities, and exceptional 5-star care for discerning seniors in the Naples area for more than 20 years. It has always been our pleasure and privilege to serve seniors and their families by supporting their choices and enhancing individual independence and well-being. In keeping with this important mission, we continue to further evolve our GlenCare Home Care Agency services. For instance, this includes offering customized personal assistance and in-home care that comes to you.

Help and Support in Your Own Home

Could you or your loved one use a helping hand from time to time? GlenCare now offers trusted in-home personalized assistance and care from our fully licensed Home Health Agency team. It is a unique choice for all residents of Collier and Lee Counties. Our Personally Yours Assistant™ Program helps you fulfill your to-do list, so you have more time and energy to spend on your favorite pastimes.

From meal planning and light housekeeping to driving you to appointments, Personally Yours Assistant™ offers a helping hand whenever and however you need it. Think of us as a trusted companion with an extra set of eyes, ears, and hands to ensure the day goes smoothly. Whether it’s more confidence on a daily walk, a swimming buddy, or someone to go shopping with, we’ll provide companionship for whatever you love to do.

“Intelligent, polite, punctual, and patient. My family has peace of mind knowing that I am well cared for.” — Mrs. C.D., GlenCare client

Additionally, this service is a great choice when you don’t need full-time assistance but could use a helping hand a few hours a day or week. Our assistants are as flexible as you need them to be. Above all, they adapt to your schedule and tailor a service just for you.

Potential needs or services might include:

  • Personal companionship
  • Grocery shopping and errands
  • Meal planning and preparation
  • Transportation and/or escort to activities and medical appointments
  • Medication reminders

When More Help is Needed

Sometimes you need professional nursing care and support beyond personalized assistance. Our highly trained and skilled GlenCare Home Care is ready to help with your needs. We go wherever you are, whenever you need us. That means to your home, hospital, skilled nursing center, anywhere.

Starting at just four hours a day, you can request the services you desire. Maybe you need help a few hours each day following surgery, regular nurse visits, or even around-the-clock care seven days a week.

Our Heartfelt Connections—A Memory Care Program™ affirms life and views aging as a natural process. The staff has specialized memory care training that provides strategies for a continuum of care to dementia residents, clients, and their families. Designed to enhance well-being and safety for those with cognitive concerns, the program enables the resident to achieve the highest quality of life and the highest level of functioning, while maintaining dignity.

Further, GlenCare’s expert clinicians—case managers, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses—can help you navigate the healthcare system. This includes talking with doctors, scheduling lab tests and medical appointments, as well as managing medications and performing wound care and breathing therapy.

How Do you Know the Level of Care You Need?

Only you can really decide which care services are needed for you or your loved one. We encourage you to understand your options. If you’re just starting to realize that more help is needed, keep in mind that these needs will only increase. Unless you and your family are willing to personally take on more caregiving roles in the future, it would beneficial to begin looking for alternatives through research and talking to professionals and friends.

At The Glenview at Pelican Bay, we know what you’re going through. When the time is right for you, consult with your family doctor, and then confer with a geriatric care manager for an initial assessment and evaluation. In all cases, be sure to communicate with other family members. The GlenCare Home Healthcare Team would be pleased to assist you with these initial services and provide you with a professional care plan. In summary, as outlined above, GlenCare offers the following levels of care each with a full menu of services for you or your loved one:

  • Personally Yours Assistant™ Program
  • GlenCare Home Care Agency—Nurses and Home Health Aides
  • Heartfelt Connections—A Memory Care Program™

Are You a Personal Caregiver Looking for Resources?

Moreover, research shows that personal caregivers are at risk for illness, exhaustion, isolation, and depression. For your sake and the health and well-being of your loved one, we have smart strategies that can help. We have resources personally designed for caregivers and their family members.
