"Dwell is a heart-powered, technology-driven collective of carers who aim to empower and enable seniors and their families to live their best life with security, top notch care, and autonomy. At Dwell we enable our parents and grandparents to dwell in their own homes!"
Care Pros: A cut above
We hire selectively, conduct extensive background checks and train above the norm. If this is just a job, you are not a good fit for Dwell. We are family who takes care of family. The best carers are those who are passionate about senior care and making a difference.
Empowering Lifestyle and Wellness
Rooted in a deep love for the senior community, Ally (our founder) spent years organizing high school and college students to visit Portland area senior homes and communities to visit, sing, and share meals. This is still an integral part of the Dwell story. We believe that the positive interactions, respect, and the empowering of autonomy is one of the most important ways we can empower seniors and their loved onesl
Transparency and Technology
At Dwell we are revolutionizing the industry with how we monitor and report care of our patients with their loved ones. We use our own developed interactive technology solutions to provide real-time videos, photos, and wellness tracking updates to ensure you are up to date and involved in care.
Non-Medical Disease Management
We know that disease can have a sudden impact on every aspect of life. That is why we provide Non-Medical Disease Management - a service intended to help clients stay on track with the many non-medical aspects of a disease at home. Diet, movement, and medications (to name a few) play a huge role in controlling disease and are often prescribed by medical professionals. We support our clients in implementing doctors orders and achieving the best health outcome.
Mobility and Fall Prevention
Everyday objects, homes and communities, not originally designed with longevity in mind, often become obstacles to movement, safety, independence and socializing. With safety and mobility continue to be top priorities for older adults, there is a need for products, programs and services that enable people to maximize their safety, strength, balance, fitness, independence and mobility as they age.
In 2015, the total medical costs of falls totaled more than $50 billion. Medicare and Medicaid shouldered 75% of these costs.
Meal Preparation and Diet Adherence
We can help you adhere to a healthy diet or a prescribed therapeutic diet because we know a healthy, nutritious diet is vital, especially when your body is battling an illness.
The evidence showing that physical activity can ward off chronic disease and restricted mobility continues to grow. However, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (the CDC), “Less than 5% of adults participate in 30 minutes of physical activity each day.”
Engagement & Purpose
Ageism and outdated social norms have led many older adults in both rural and urban communities to feel isolated and marginalized. Helping older adults get and stay meaningfully engaged is critical for their health and the health of our communities. New and creative ways are needed to not only tap into their wisdom but also provide opportunities for lifelong learning and meaningful engagement across their lifespans.
Daily Living & Lifestyle
Despite the majority of older adults stating a preference to “age in place,” one third of people over the age of 65 need assistance with at least one activity of daily living (e.g. eating, bathing, dressing). Products and services are needed to not only support older adults’ basic daily activities, but also to foster and support their ability to thrive, pursue their passions and engage with their chosen lifestyles.
Care for older adults is provided by informal (unpaid) and formal (paid) caregivers, both of which increasingly care for people with higher levels of acuity and complex conditions. Family caregivers— who are often juggling other family and work responsibilities while living remotely from the care recipient—need better support, training, resources and tools to support their loved ones and themselves. On the professional side, staff shortages and quality concerns require new solutions to help attract, train, develop and leverage scarce human capital.
The healthcare journey can be particularly complex and fragmented for older adults, two-thirds of whom have at least two chronic conditions. We help support care transitions from hospital-to-home, and collaborate with other care providers inside the home.
