Whatever the need, Cambridge has got you covered
Need help with in-home care for a loved one?
Our carefully selected, fully screened and vaccinated caregivers are all employees of the company (not contractors!). Each is selected based on their specific skills, background, and personality to perform the duties assigned to them. Caregivers may include not only companions but Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Licensed Vocational Nurses (LVN) or Registered Nurses (RN), as well as others who have extensive training in such areas as dementia,
Alzheimer’s, ALS and pre-op/post-op care needs.
When you need help, look to our compassionate, kind, and sensitive team of caregivers for the support you need to keep your loved one healthy, safe and independent. Services we offer include:
Meal Planning and Preparation
As people age, they are prone to malnourishment. This is compounded by the fact that age-related difficulties can make it hard for seniors to shop for groceries, prepare meals, and in some cases, even remember to eat.
We offer our clients meal planning and preparation to ensure they get the foods they want and make the healthy choices they need for brain and physical health. Below are some of the meal planning and preparation options available:
- Meal planning and grocery shopping for daily and future meals
- Clean up and put away dishes
- Monitor grocery and household needs
- Check food expiration dates and clean out the refrigerator
- Research, browse and arrange recipes or even clip coupons
- Monitor diet and nutritional intake
Personal Care Assistance
Good hygiene and grooming are essential elements of your loved one’s mental and physical health. Our caregivers are there to assist with assuring that your loved one feels like the best version of themselves. We will help with establishing routines and personal care based on their preferences.
Do they enjoy a shower in the morning or a bath in the evening? Need help with toileting, grooming, and dressing? Our caregivers can help with:
A safe and clean environment is an overall part of in-home care. People are generally healthier and happier when their homes are clean. However, for seniors or others with disabilities, simple housekeeping chores can be challenging and result in unsanitary conditions that lead to additional health concerns. A cluttered environment can also lead to slips and falls, one of the leading causes of hospital visits by the elderly.
Let our team help sort through the clutter and keep the home a neat, organized, and safe place. Typical duties include:
Personal Care Assistance
Human beings, by nature, desire social interaction with an inherent need for companionship and friendship. It is an integral part of living a meaningful, fulfilling, and happy life. Sadly, many seniors who are home-bound become increasingly isolated as their physical abilities and mobility decline. The result is intense feelings of isolation and loneliness which can dramatically affect their quality of life and lead to depression.
Companionship is a service where our caregivers can provide:
- Spirited, engaging conversation
- Recreational activities such as exercise, going for walks, and board games
- Assistance with getting and opening mail as well as responding
- Escort to social gatherings and appointments
- Finding and participating in movie marathons or television shows
- and much more
Transportation and Basic Errands
Driving provides independence. However, as we age, reflexes, memory, and decision-making skills decline and can cause safety concerns for your loved one and others. At some point, all of us will need to give up our licenses. Although reluctant, transportation support can help ease that decision.
The good news is that Cambridge can provide transport assistance and run basic errands. We can help with transportation for:
Medical Support Services
Compassion and kindness are not the only requirements for our staff. We employ caregivers with specialized backgrounds to meet the needs of our clients. In addition to standard caregivers, we employ CNAs, RNs, LVNs, and VN, who can handle basic medical needs.

Medical support services may include:
- Blood pressure and blood sugar monitoring
- Pre-op and post-op care
- Medication reminders
- Advocacy and assistance at doctor appointments
- Schedule doctor visits and accompany to doctors’ offices
- Exercise and physical therapy reinforcement
- Ambulation and transfer assistance
Support Designed For Your Loved One’s Needs
Our care plans are designed around your loved one, and you can count on our team of qualified professionals to help build a comprehensive home care plan covering all of their needs, both physical and emotional.
Our initial evaluation and consultation provides the discussion points we need to assess the care requirements of you or your loved one(s).
