“Just emailing to let you know we’ve decided to go ahead with your company! We both felt comfortable and I like that you do all your hiring and interviews yourself. I’ll be back with my grandmother Wed-Sat and would love to meet an aid or two that you have in mind. Please let me know your availability those days. I look forward to working with you.”

At Hopkinton Home Care, it’s important for the owner and all CNA’s (Certified Nursing Assistant) that we not only manage your expectations, but that you are 110% comfortable with our services. Our job requires many different responsibilities, but care for patients on a daily basis provides us some of the greatest rewards any profession could offer.
Taking a closer look at the daily tasks at Hopkinton Home Care, we can narrow down our top 5 services in the list below. If you require a service not mentioned on our website, please don’t hesitate to ask!
- Feed, bathe and dress patients
Care from Hopkinton Home Care helps patients with their basic needs. Generally, this means helping them bathe, dress and feed themselves. These patients might include stroke victims, elderly residents or love ones, or individuals recovering from an accident, injuries or surgeries at home.
- Take patient vital signs and escort to doctor appointments
From temperature to blood pressure, we are responsible for taking and recording patient vital signs. Routine tasks such as these are typically the initial steps of a patient’s visit to a physician’s office or hospital, which means we may also have the responsibility of transportation to and from an office visit.
- Serve meals, make beds and keep rooms clean
In line with meeting patients’ basic needs, our duties may include serving meals to patients, making beds and helping clean rooms. This can mean light cleaning or changing soiled sheets. It also means getting the chance to have regular, one-on-one contact with patients—the compassionate relationships that can help people make it through times of illness with dignity.
- Set up medical equipment, medication management and assisting with some medical needs
Storing and setting up medical equipment might involve medication management and assisting with other medical needs. Please discuss with us any and all medical needs to make sure they are in line with our capabilities.
- Offer companionship, answer questions and observe changes in a patient’s condition or behavior
Working so closely with patients on a daily or weekly basis, we observe not only the obvious changes in a patient’s physical condition but the subtleties of their emotional state. That intuition can have immeasurable impact on helping patients make it through a trying recovery or come to terms with a long-term condition.
Whether we offer support with medication management, bring them breakfast in the morning or simply listen, Hopkinton Home Care makes a significant difference to the quality of care of your loved ones.Hopkinton Home Care wants to answer your personal and confidential questions. Only after we learn what you need can we let you know how we can meet those needs. Give us a call: 508-544-4650.
