Thinking ahead for appropriate care for aging loved ones is not usually a common conversation that comes up in day to day discussion. Most people never even consider it until they’re forced to. Oftentimes, there is a sudden event that causes the need to look outside the family for help with a loved one’s care. Acti-Kare Responsive In-Home Care of Glendale is positioned to fulfill those needs, whether it’s something as simple as occasional transportation to appointments, companion and homemaking services, all the way up to full non-medical personal care attention. “The perception that many people have when they think about a caregiver coming into their home is that it’s only for people who need help with all aspects of daily living. Rarely is that the case,” says Johnathan Veal, Area Director. “Our caregivers at Acti-Kare know the importance of remaining as active and independent as long as possible and, to the extent that we can, help assist clients in maintaining their activities of daily living.” In many cases, that means starting care early while the client can still be an active part of their own care plan. This gives them time to get used to their caregiver and find comfort in knowing that Acti-Kare is a consistent and reliable part of their life if the time comes when more assistance is needed.
Veal states, “My vision is to provide the utmost personal care to seniors to ensure that they will have a better quality of life. I believe that everyone should have an opportunity to live life to the fullest, regardless of physical or mental limitations. I am completely focused on helping every individual maintain their independence and dignity.”
With a Bachelor’s degree in Social Work, Veal understands the challenges that seniors face in staying home. He has also served in the U.S. Air Force and has worked in IT, which have both served to help him create a focus on details. He is very compassionate toward others and receives personal satisfaction from helping others in need.
He understands the need for personal care first hand due to his parents having to care for his grandmother when she was no longer able to care for herself. He understands that it can definitely be a challenging time for those entrusted with the task of caring for a loved one. This inspired him to start his own business.
Acti-Kare has created Acti-Vate™, a revolutionary program that helps battle fatigue in many seniors. “Seeing clients enjoying hobbies or interests that they haven’t been able to in years because of a highly trained Acti-Kare caregiver assisting them is incredibly rewarding.” states Johnathan.
There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to home care, which is why great attention to detail and time goes into understanding and assessing an individual’s needs. It’s important to incorporate a customized care plan in a manner that is comfortable for the client, their family and the caregiver.
With 8,000 people turning 65 every single day in the United States there is a growing shift in the traditional aging model. Now, more than ever, seniors are choosing to “age in place,” and that usually means remaining in a private home or independent living community as long as possible. Acti-Kare plays a big role in helping people live the life they desire.
Johnathan’s location serves the Glendale, Peoria areas, and parts of northern Phoenix.
