If you are considering a local non-medical facility, give Village Caregiving LLC a call.
Greg Duke, whose father Nathan Duke is a client of Village Caregiving, said he highly recommends the service.
“I’m happy with the program,” Duke said. “I take care of my father full time and having someone come in is helpful to me,” he said.
Duke’s father is a Vietnam Veteran. Village Caregiving is a locally owned and operated non-medical home health care agency with locations in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.
It was founded in 2013, opened an office in Clarksburg in 2018, and one in Morgantown in April.
Steven Staffileno, executive director of Village Caregiving, said in-home care is an option that allows individuals to stay in their own homes longer than they could do otherwise.
“People want to stay in their homes. That’s where they’re most comfortable,” Staffileno said. “We get a lot of concerned calls from people asking if we can be there for an elderly relative. It helps family members to know their relative is receiving good care and living a happy and healthy life.”
He said the daily living services provided by the caregivers include help with activities such as eating, bathing, toileting, dressing, getting up and down and moving around, light cleaning and housework, transportation to appointments, errands and medication reminders.
Other services range from hands-on personal care to simple companionship care.
“Our caregivers are very caring people. I believe choosing this type of work speaks volumes about the type of people they are,” Staffileno said.
