Every day thousands of Wisconsin residents are called upon to be the caregiver for their loved one with disabilities. As the caregiver, they may have to take time off from their jobs, cut back on their hours, or in some cases, are forced to go so far as to quit working outside of the home all together. These are the choices that thousands of Wisconsin residents face everyday in order to take care of a family member or close friend who is no longer able to do so themselves. Not only are caregivers struggling with the knowledge and stress that their loved ones need help, they are also facing their own personal and financial needs. What many Wisconsin residents don’t realize is that there is a huge light at the end of this tunnel of despair and worry. What if you, as a Wisconsin resident, had the ability to choose who took care of you in your own home? What if a caregiver, like you, had the ability to get paid for the care that you’re already giving to your loved one in need? Well, you do! Not only can caregivers get paid for taking care of a loved one, select Wisconsin residents have the right to choose their own personal caregiver! Individuals who receive Title 19 or Medicaid have the right to choose their own personal care aid. Heritage Health Services is here to help the residents of Milwaukee, Racine, Kenosha and all of Southeast Wisconsin to hire the caregiver they choose and in turn, giving them the peace of mind of no strangers in their home. This is a sure way for Wisconsin resident’s to know they are getting the best care possible by someone they know and trust. Are you taking care of a loved one with disabilities? Does a loved one count on you for their care? Did you know that you could be paid for the care you are already giving?

Personal Care Services
Help with Morning & Evening Routines
From help out of bed, to grooming and dressing assistance to a nutritious breakfast, a Personal Care Assistant can be there every step of the morning to get your day started off right. Need help in the afternoon? A Personal Care Assistant can be there to prepare a healthy lunch and assist with a much needed afternoon nap. A good night’s rest is essential to a healthy lifestyle.

If you or your loved one struggles with getting in and out of bed or a wheelchair, your personal care assistant has specialized training on how to safely provide this home care assistance. Why increase your risk of falling? Let Heritage Health Services provide you with the peace of mind that comes from having assistance during transfers.
Assistance with Dressing
If you or your loved one struggles with getting dressed and undressed, either in or out of bed, our personal care services include help with this task, ensuring you or your family member can look and feel their best. Our personal care assistants can help you, as needed, with your clothing, socks, shoes and outerwear to make sure you look your best and are ready for the day. At night they can help you undress and get into your pyjamas to ensure you’re comfortable while you sleep.
Personal Hygiene Assistance
Personal hygiene cleanses the body and increases confidence. Poor personal hygiene is directly related to an increase in skin breakdown and higher risks for infection. Poor hygiene can also lead to decreased self-confidence and affect the way we interact with others in the community. Heritage Health Services in-home caregivers offer the personal assistance you or your loved one needs to continue the self-care that makes them feel clean, refreshed and confident. No matter the number of years an individual has lived, they still take pride in their appearance. As part of our personal care services, we can help you or your loved ones look their best with hair care, nail care and other personal appearance cares.
Incontinence Care and Restroom Use Help
Heritage Health Services personal care assistants are trained to offer minimal to full assistance with restroom use, including incontinence care and catheter care, all with the utmost respect, professionalism and sensitivity to privacy. Our personal care assistants are specially trained on how to provide care for aging or disabled family members who suffer from occasional or frequent incontinence. For individuals who have problems controlling their urine or bowels, proper skin care and incontinence care is essential to decrease skin impairments that could lead to increased infection risks. Keeping skin dry and clean should be a high priority in your daily care. Heritage Health Services is here to assist you with your incontinence needs.
Bathing & Showering Assistance
Bathing and showering may be difficult or unsafe for you or your loved one to do alone. Bathtubs and showers have the potential to be dangerous places in the home. According to a study conducted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2011, 21.8 million persons aged ≥15 years sustained nonfatal, unintentional injuries related to falls in the shower or tub in the United States. The fear associated from bathroom falls shouldn’t be used as an excuse to neglect your personal hygiene. Don’t allow yourself or your loved one to become another statistic. Heritage Health Services can provide the help you or your family member need with bathing and showering assistance as part of our in home personal care.
