As a clinically-based agency, our program takes the unique needs of our clients into account. We educate our caregivers, who in turn give family members the tools they need to provide quality care.
Supporting family caregivers is part of a comprehensive, holistic care program. If you are taking care of a loved one, The Perfect Companion will include you in our follow-up calls and care planning (provided the client consents to share information with you).
The Perfect Companion provides personalized care plans for all levels of care: from companions, to caregivers, to hospice caregivers.
The EIPPO System
Jon Siegel, the founder of The Perfect Companion, created the proprietary EIPPO system to better serve clients and their loved ones.
EIPPO stands for Education + Intervention + Prevention = Preferred Outcome. We all prefer to spend as little time in the hospital as possible, to feel safe and secure in our homes, and to enjoy an optimum quality of life. Preferred outcomes also give family caregivers peace of mind. In addition to the activities of daily living, our care plan includes:
Fall Prevention: Home safety improvements, proper use of medical/ambulatory devices, and how to transfer clients safely
Medication management: Thorough inventory of all prescription and over-the-counter medications, identifying harmful contraindications, and how to manage meds to avoid adverse side effects
TIA/Mini-strokes: Recognizing the signs that could be symptoms of TIA (Transient Ischemic Attacks or mini-strokes), which can lead to falls and to memory problems
Cardiac Heart Failure
Urinary Tract Infections: Identifying UTIs, which can be misdiagnosed as dementia
Dementia and Alzheimer’s: Seeking a proper exam to confirm the diagnosis, assessing treatment options, and adjusting to changes caused by the condition
