Companion Care

Completing everyday tasks can be difficult to complete as people age. We promote independence and only step in to help with daily tasks when they are needed. Our goal is to assist your loved one in aging in place as long as they desire to do so.

Our Lutra caregivers have a passion for helping and a talent for providing care with empathy and compassion. For example, they can help your loved one with these activities (among many):

  • Connecting with family and friends through email and social media
  • Letter writing and mailing
  • Their favorite hobbies
  • Healthy exercise (both home programs from therapist and informal activities, such as walking or swimming)
  • Brain games, such as crosswords, word finds, etc.
  • Running errands and providing transportation to and from their medical appointments and social events.
  • Cooking meals
  • Light housekeeping

Our caregivers build a connection with their clients and learn their interests and preferences. This builds a wonderful partnership, allowing us to support your loved one physically, mentally, and emotionally.


Personal Care

Each client is at a different point of needing assistance with personal hygiene. Our personal care services emphasize dignity, privacy, and respect as we assist them with their hygiene, ambulation, and safety.

Our caregivers are trained to handle these everyday tasks:

  • Bathing
  • Dressing
  • Grooming
  • Feeding
  • Toileting
  • Incontinence care
  • Transfer equipment (hoyer or sit-to-stand)
  • Ambulation aids (walker, cane, wheelchair)

We understand the challenges of personal care at different functional levels, and will cater to these needs with respect, empathy, and compassion.


Lutra Home Care also provides professional nursing services for your loved one’s medical needs, as directed by a physician, such as:

  • Managing medications (refills and medication reminders)
  • General monitoring of health status
  • Wound care
  • Management of indwelling catheters (Foley, suprapubic)
  • Changing PICC line dressings
  • Administer and maintain feeding tubes (g-tube, NG tube, peg tube)
  • Preparing and administering intravenous drug therapy
  • End of life care in partnership with hospice services

Our nursing centers around compassion. We are able to deliver this with exemplary service and professional skills.


Case Management Services

When something changes with your loved one’s health, there are many moving pieces to manage. Our team can coordinate care during transitions such as hospital discharge planning.

Monthly Medication Management

A nurse will make weekly visits to fill medi-planner, manage refills, and coordinate between physicians regarding changes. As loved ones need change, alternative medication delivery systems can be assessed, such as automatic dispensers.

Lisa Borders Ott


“An aging parent is something nobody looks forward to having to manage. Believe me when I tell you, stop calling other agencies, you’ve found the best home care service possible right here in Elgin. I’ve never worked with a more compassionate, caring and approachable group of women. Their empathy for my mom and willingness to help anywhere they could was impressive. We’ve had to move my mom back to Mass because of the COVID-19 scare, and I am struggling to find a viable service that will just answer their phone! [They have] set the bar very high!”
