Spanish for ‘A Life’
Avida Home Care is dedicated to helping seniors with in home care needs
If you’re looking for in home care for an elderly parent or other family member, facing the need for assistance can be difficult. We can help.
Change is inevitable. Tasks that were once easy to perform by Oakland seniors become more difficult. This should be acknowledged as the natural course of life. Our goal at Avida is to define our clients’ needs, and allow them to choose where to live while we provide in home care. Most seniors want to stay home as long as they can. This may become difficult, perhaps impossible without in-home assistance from qualified and compassionate caregivers.
Avida offers a solution: assistance with bathing, dressing, shopping, light housekeeping, meal preparation, companionship and more. Our clients and their families in the Oakland area and throughout the East Bay have peace of mind in knowing that our caregivers provide these services and A VIDA is dignified.
Every in home care situation is different. First and foremost, not all assistance is for seniors. Sometimes parents find themselves being caregivers for senior parents who need help in bathing, dressing, or being assisted in and out of a wheelchair. Whether caring for a senior or other circumstances, in home care can spell a caregiver or provide whatever care is needed. We can help you decide what level of care is needed and find the right caregiver for you.
In Home Senior Care Serving Oakland and the East Bay Area
Seniors frequently find themselves at a crossroads when they lose a spouse or find it increasingly difficult to care for themselves. They often know that an assisted living situation is not for them. They may have raised their children in their Oakland home, and do not want to give up all those memories. But there is a good solution. Many seniors can stay at home while Avida Home Care provides help when and where needed.
Caring for seniors in home can mean different things, but it typically involves personal needs: cooking, light housekeeping, care with bathing and dressing, grooming, medication reminders, running errands, companionship, and/or a variety of other daily tasks. The senior might also need transportation to and from Doctors appointments. In home care can even help with outings to go shopping or get a haircut. Short of in home medical care, Avida Home Care can provide the answer.
Finding the a good fit with a caregiver can sometimes be difficult for you or for the senior themselves. If your parent has a lifelong love of gardening, finding someone who can help with this task can be a match made in heaven. If your senior loves cooking, the match would be different but could be equally satisfying. Even a simple language match can be vitally important. Spanish speakers should have Spanish speaking aides. The experience you will find at Avida Home Care can make all the difference for your loved one.

Oakland, CA is the eighth largest city in the state, and was incorporated in 1852. It is also the county seat for Alameda County, and regarded as the heart of the East Bay.
The path to population for the area went straight through the forest lands that helped build San Francisco. The area’s fertile ground helped it become established as farmland, and the growth from the California Gold Rush helped establish Oakland as a main stop for passengers and cargo from the Bay area to the foothills of the Sierras. The building of a railroad in the area by the late 1860’s saw even greater growth for the city. The San Francisco Earthquake in 1906 led to the exodus from that destroyed city with wealthy families looking for another area to rebuild their grand mansions. The addition of streetcars connecting to inter-city rail lines helped move the population, as did extensive bus lines and the ferry fleet that connects the city to San Francisco.
The population continued to grow, and led to the Oakland of today, regarded by many as one of the most diverse populations in the United States.
