“Caring for our seniors is perhaps the greatest responsibility we have. Those who walked before us have given so much and made possible the life we all enjoy.” – John Hoeven

At Magnolia Home Care Service, the safety, comfort, and overall welfare of our clients are our top priorities. We recognize that most people prefer to age, heal, and recover in the comfort of their own home—with our help, we can make that possible. With our compassionate, highly trained caregivers and a wide array of home care services in Savannah, Georgia, we endeavor to improve our client’s quality of life.

Our services include:

Post-Surgical Assistance

Recovering after surgery in your home can limit you from doing your daily activities. Whether you are recovering from major surgery, childbirth, or plastic surgery, our compassionate caregivers can assist you on a healthy and complete recovery.

Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalized degeneration of the brain. It is the most common cause of premature senility and while a cure has yet to be found, there is care that exists to make the challenges a little easier. At MAGHCS we believe that with the right care and approach we can help your loved one maintain a high quality of life even in the face of memory loss.

When choosing between in-home care and a nursing home facility, the right choice is the one that lets you do the activities you enjoy and be with the people you love. In-Home care is an affordable option that preserves your independence, and enables you to stay connected to what matters most.

Staying in the familiar surroundings of home can keep seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia feeling safe, loved and cared for.

This relationship centered approach enables us to provide care that is tailored to their individual needs which foster:

  • Creative social interaction
  • Mind-stimulating activities
  • Minimal changes in behavioral & cognitive symptoms
  • Who the senior was earlier in life
  • Family support

When should you call us?
When an individual has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, memory impairment and disorientation is the most concerning aspect of the disease. Once they pose a risk to themselves and others, consider obtaining the services of a qualified professional caregiver since they can often times lose track of what they are doing. They will need in-home care and supervision to ensure their safety and your peace of mind.

Our team of highly experienced caregivers means you can trust Magnolia Home Care Service to make your loved one’s life and yours much easier and more enjoyable!

Respite Care

Autistic Children, Special Needs and Sick Babies
At Magnolia Home Care Service we know just how hard it is to care for children. Many parents sacrifice their own needs to juggle the needs of the family. Sleep deprivation, time away from work, missed social opportunities and loss of personal time are just a few of the challenges parents experience.

Many parents feel guilty for sharing their complaints despite being completely worn out! It is especially difficult for parents to balance their own needs and responsibilities when also caring for a sick infant, for children with special needs, or caring for an autistic child.​

Research has demonstrated that respite care services can make a significant positive difference in the lives of families. Our in-home respite care services give you the break you deserve to increase your social and emotional well-being.

Our skilled and compassionate workers understand the unique challenges you face when caring for children with autism, special needs or even sick babies. That’s why respite care may be the perfect solution to help you get the balance you deserve.

​Caregivers of Cancer Patients
As the primary caregiver of a loved one with cancer, at times, you may feel overwhelmed and stressed. Since most cancer treatment is given at outpatient treatment centers — not in hospitals, someone is needed to be part of the day-to-day care of the person with cancer.

Caregivers serve many roles often serving as home health aides and companions as well as being an important part of the cancer care team. The busy schedule can leave you with no time to care for yourself since you’re focused on meeting the demands of being a caregiver.

At Magnolia Home Care Service, we believe that good, reliable caregiver support is crucial to the physical and emotional well-being of people with cancer. That’s why we offer respite care to give you the break you deserve!

Our in-home respite care allows you to take a break from your duties to relax, run errands or even take a vacation. We want to help you avoid caregiver burnout. That’s why it’s important that you spend time outside of the caregiver environment.

​Post-Operative Respite Care
Caring for a loved one after surgery can be overwhelming, as patients are often discharged before they are fully recovered. Patients released from a hospital often require help moving about the house, special attention to surgical sites and personal care assistance.

Caregivers are often stressed from caring for their loved one, and managing employment, finances and transportation. That’s why we offer in home respite care so that you can avoid caregiver burnout!

Magnolia Home Care Service can work with you to make sure that a skilled and compassionate caregiver will be present when you need post operative caregiver support. Some of the post-operative care services we provide include:

  • Moving about the house
  • Bathing and toiletry help
  • Medication management (Registered nurses provide medication management and our CNA’s assist with reminders)
  • Assistance with ADLs (Activities of Daily Living ) which include bathing, grooming, dressing, etc
