Sunlife's Specialty Care Programs are designed for those clients that need more customized care.
Chronic Disease Care
Millions of people throughout the United States struggle with the challenges of chronic disease management every day. From COPD and diabetes to congestive heart failure and cancer, chronic diseases and conditions can make even the simplest things in life seem difficult.
At Sunlife Home Care, we believe that a chronic disease diagnosis should not mean the end of your independence and freedom. Working with your primary care physician, our Chronic Disease Management team will help you to manage your disease and decrease hospitalizations so you can continue living your best life.
Our knowledgeable staff will help you with the knowledge and tools you need to manage your disease effectively. Our care giving staff can help with monitoring, taking vital signs, asking disease specific questions and reporting symptoms on a daily basis while you continue living your day-to-day life.
Find out how our patient-centered approach to Chronic Disease Management can help you manage your symptoms and maintain your independence and freedom.
Chronic Disease Care
In-home care includes a wide range of services provided in the home, rather than in a hospital or care facility. It can allow a person with Alzheimer's or other dementia to stay in his or her own home. It also can be of great assistance to caregivers. Our in-home services provide non-medical help, such as assistance with daily living.
Here is an example of in-home services we provide:
- Companion services: Help with supervision, recreational activities or visiting.
- Personal care services: Help with bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, exercising or other personal care.
- Homemaker services: Help with housekeeping, shopping or meal preparation.
Hospital Discharge & Emergency Services
Discharging patients from acute care is a complex process that is fraught with challenges and involves over 35 million hospital discharges annually in the United States. The cost of unplanned readmissions is 15 to 20 billion dollars annually (CMS). Preventing avoidable readmissions has the potential to profoundly improve both the quality of life for patients and the financial wellbeing of health care systems.
At Sunlife Home care, we can provide a caregiver within 24 hours of discharge, transport your loved one home, pick up medications, do grocery shopping for a healthy diet, and help with transfers, ambulation, housekeeping, meal prep and other activities of daily living.

Hospice Support Care
Learn how hospice support care from Sunlife Home Care can make the hospice period easier for you and your loved one. We can help by providing respite for the primary caregiver as well as provide 24 hour around the clock assistance for help with any non-medical needs like bathing, meals, transfers, ambulation, or just being there as a companion.

Private Duty Care Services
Looking for help in caring for a loved one? Or planning ahead for your own care after a hospital stay? In either case, Sunlife private duty care service can be just what you need. We help people live independently or keep a loved one safe in their own home.
Private duty caregivers can provide a wide range of services. For example, caregivers can give you a ride home from the hospital, help with bathing and dressing or prepare a meal.
Our goal is simply to provide whatever private home care services you or your loved one may need to continue living a full and independent life.
Our private duty home care services fall into three categories:
- Private Duty Care Services which help with daily tasks in your home
- Facility Discharge Service which takes care of getting a patient home from the hospital or rehab center
- Elite Care Service provided at independent living and other selected facilities.
Private duty visiting home care services
Many recuperating patients or seniors could stay in their own homes if they had just a bit of help. So Sunlife visiting home care services provide that help with quality private home health related care.
In-Home supportive services
If your loved one needs a hand with day-to-day activities, our private caregivers can be there, giving you the peace of mind you need.
On the other hand, if you need respite from your own caregiving duties, our visiting caregivers are trained to step in and help there as well.
A Sunlife caregiver can take over some or all caregiving duties. You will have time to handle other duties, connect with other family members, or simply get some much-needed rest.
In either case, Sunlife Home Care services can include help with most daily activities. For instance, services might include shopping, transportation, bathing and dressing, meal preparation, and even light housekeeping or pet walking. In addition, our skilled in-home caregivers can be on hand to help with transfers from wheelchair to bed or bath as well.

Short term care at home
A little extra care for seniors after illness or surgery can make all the difference.
Sunlife offers hospital discharge services to get you home safely from a hospital stay. Home care services can provide needed support like meal preparation, help moving about, or medication reminders until you are back on your feet. Call to talk with a care team member about short term care while you heal.
Respite care at home
Even the best family caregivers need an occasional break from caregiving. Respite care for caregivers can be arranged as needed.
Take a break – reconnect with other family members – get out of the house - or just take a nap. Whatever you need, we can give you time to do it without worry.
A few hours a week or month – or just now and then as needed. We arrange respite care to meet your needs and keep your loved one safe in your absence. Call now to learn more!
Learn how in home supportive services can help you.
If you are looking for help with a particular type of private home care services, we can help. Above all, you will find our in home care team listens to your needs and will tailor private duty home care and provide home caregivers to assist you in living independently.
Private duty facility discharge service
Sunlife hospital discharge assistance services can include picking a patient up from the hospital, filling their prescriptions, shopping for groceries, and getting the patient settled in for the night.
Need help getting home from hospital?
Now there is no need to rely on friends or family to get home after a hospital stay. Instead, call on Sunlife for facility discharge assistance.
Facility discharge services can be a huge help to individuals without family nearby.
And we also often provide hospital discharge help to single men and women who don’t want to bother working family members or friends to take them home from a hospital stay.
Elite independent living service
Our Elite service at independent living facilities helps our clients maintain their independent living as they age or go through a medical situation.
We know some people can face difficulty with daily living activities, so Sunlife’s Elite Independent Living Service offers help with daily living. Discover how our Elite services allow individuals to remain in an independent living facility rather than move to assisted living.
For example, Sunlife caregivers may provide help getting to the dining room for a client with a balance issue. Or we might help putting on TED hose when a client finds it difficult to bend down or lacks the strength to pull up those tight socks. Or a Sunlife Elite caregiver might deliver a tray of food to their room when they are too tired to get to the dining area. And we can make sure that clients remember to take their medications correctly and on time.
If a client goes to the hospital, Sunlife caregivers can follow their progress to make sure they come back to the home facility. In addition, we handle hospital discharge, and provide additional care during the transition from acute care at the hospital to post acute care and recovery.
Sunlife Elite Independent Living Service is available only at select Independent Living facilities. So contact us to find out if your independent living facility qualifies. Call us today or use our handy contact form here.
