Dare to Dream Attendant Services would like to keep people in their homes and out of institutions and Hospitals.
Institutionalized from home??
“Nearly 11.9 % of 1,304,810 people in nursing facilities were admitted directly from their home or apartments. Despite the common misconception, these people were not admitted from an acute care hospital, a rehabilitation hospital, another nursing home, or either a board and care, assisted living or group home.” — the news from Attorney Steve Gold ADA regarding institutions and Independent living:”
Message from the President
Conceptualized in 2005, Dare to Dream Attendant Services strives to keep people with disabilities and seniors comfortable in their homes. So often in today’s world, we isolate the elderly and disabled by putting people into facilities, where they are often prevented from a life of choice and stripped of dignities. Every human being deserves the right live by their own choices and if need be, let the persons care be done by a personal assistant or a registered nurse. As the owner of Dare to Dream Attendant Services and a person with a disability myself, I know what it is like having to depend on people and trust people coming into my home and seeing the very intimate details of my life. I feel, as the president of this company, it is my highest regard to expect nothing less than the best from my staff.
Community – is a place for everyone. People with disabilities and seniors deserve the right to live at home with quality care, consumer choice and maximum independence. Due to my own disability, I use a wheelchair, and have started this business to make sure that people with disabilities and seniors alike, get to participate in the universal dream of a life of as much freedom and independence as possible.
Ability – We believe that everyone has the ability to live their own lives and make their own decisions. Our providers help facilitate the abilities of the individual. The disability is put aside when there is above average care that can be provided on a personal or non-personal care level.
Respect – Our providers understand that everyone has different needs and different capabilities. We respect the right of the individual to be involved in the process of care. We also respect the array of different cultures that exist in our world. The people who Dare to Dream Attendant Services employs are people who we demand respect and integrity from, from the time they walk in the door. There is a strict application and fingerprinting process from the Department of Justice. I, myself, if you haven’t already figured it out from the front cover, require assistance 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, so I understand the real meaning of respect from many different levels. Part of respect means having to be on-time; to be a hard worker, but most importantly, love what you do and who you work with.
Empowerment – To be empowered means, to someone with a disability, the right to be able to live life the same way everyone does. We empower people with disabilities and seniors by giving them choices in everything they do. Everyone deserves to feel good about their mind, body, and spirit. Our caregivers understand this and do their job well the first time. Dare to Dream Attendant Services hopes to empower more and more seniors and people with disabilities.
Knowing the difference
Nursing care vs. Personal Care
A client will often request nursing care for in home medical treatment, monitoring, safety, and recovery of acutely or chronically ill or injured people, the health maintenance of healthy individuals, and the on-going treatment and assessment of life-threatening medical emergencies in a wide range of health care settings.
A client will often ask for personal care when non-invasive care is needed. This may include a wide range of activities including dressing, bathing, grooming, feeding, transfers, repositioning, companionship, assistance with toileting, mobility assistance, running errands, and laundry.
