What We Do

Independence at Home

We believe in accessible communities and the importance of living a life of dignity focused on need and preference. Every day we are reminded of the value of this work; providing the option to remain at-home.

In Your Home

Our in-home personal care is nonmedical and can be tailored to fit any needs. Whether you’re looking for assistance with preparing meals, housekeeping, dressing, bathing, or simply with medication reminders, our caregivers are available as companions, supporters, coaches, or simply a shoulder to lean on.

Whether it’s one hour a day, three days a week, or 24/7 care, our caregivers are highly trained to meet all state and federal requirements, providing services based on the needs and preferences of you or your loved one.

Activities of Daily Living

Activities of Daily Living

Activities of Daily Living or ADLs is a term used by healthcare professionals to refer to the basic self-care tasks an individual does on a day-to-day basis.

These activities are fundamental in caring for oneself and maintaining independence. An individual’s ability or inability to perform ADLs is often used by health professionals as a way of measuring an individual’s functional status, especially that of older adults or those with disabilities. Basic ADLs, sometimes referred to as BADLs, are self-care activities routinely performed which include, but are not limited to:

  • Functional mobility, which includes the ability to walk and transfer in and out of a chair or bed. Essentially, it’s the ability to move from one place to another as a person goes through their daily routines.
  • Personal hygiene, oral care and grooming, including skin and hair care
    Showering and/or bathing
  • Toileting, which includes getting on/off toilet and cleaning oneself
  • Dressing, which includes selecting appropriate attire and putting it on
  • Self-feeding

Unlimited Care strives to reinforce the idea of “Every Day Lives” as developed by the state Office of Developmental Programs.

Instrumental Activities of Daily Living

Instrumental Activities - Daily Living

Instrumental Activities of Daily Living or IADLs are not essential for basic functioning; however, they enable a person to live independently within a community.

They’re generally more complex than basic ADLs. IADLs are made up of activities which include, but are not limited to:

  • Housekeeping, laundry and other home care chores
  • Money management
  • Meal preparation
  • Moving/changing residences
  • Shopping for groceries and other necessities
  • Medication management
  • Using the telephone or computer
