Orange County’s Coral Tree In Home Care is a family-owned caregiving agency located in Newport Beach, California, run by Donald, Cassidy and Kate Macdonald.
We provide caregivers and in home care support for individuals and families throughout Orange County. Home is where you thrive, and where our caregiving can enhance your contentedness and provide peace of mind.
As a family, we have caregiving in our genes. Donald’s mother Agnes and aunt Jean were nurses, as is his sister Julia, who works for a hospice in Cape Town. Cassidy’s parents moved with their children into her maternal grandparents’ home when her grandfather died so that they could care for her grandmother Katie. Our move to Newport Beach from South Africa over twenty years ago enabled us to care for Cassidy’s parents and uncle as they aged.
The coral tree, Erythrina, is not only the official tree of Newport Beach (as well as Los Angeles) and a royal tree to the Zulus, but is believed by many, particularly in Africa, to have medicinal, healing and magical properties. The coral tree bark applied as a poultice is used to treat wounds and arthritis. Coral tree seeds are considered lucky charms.
The coral tree represents healing to us and we hope to bring that to you in your home. If home is where the heart is, let it stay there.
Why Choose In Home Care?
Caring for elderly, disabled and injured loved ones can be a time-consuming and overwhelming labor of love. With busy lives, family and work commitments, for most of us it’s simply not possible to be there physically, on a day-to-day basis, in every aspect that our aging parents and grandparents require. It’s also rarely possible to have our elderly loved ones move into our own homes — and most often not what they would want! Aging in place, in their own homes, is the ideal — and one of kindest choices we can make in regards to our loved one’s long-term health and well-being. Assisted living facilities often do not provide the one-on-one care that frail seniors require. And being able to continue to live amongst familiar surroundings and memories, provides immeasurable psychological and physical comfort.
In home care is comfortable and promotes healing and well-being. Staying at home in a familiar environment and routine can make the world of difference for those affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia, and is the preferred option for those with memory and cognitive disorders as facilities and new environments can be stressful and confusing.
In home care is flexible. You can always increase or decrease the amount of care as your family member’s health changes.
Freedom & Independence
In home care allows your loved one the greatest sense of independence, freedom, and control. Changing bodies and cognitive struggles can lead to great physical and psychological stress, and a sense of losing one’s independence is often a cause of deep frustration for seniors. Being able to receive care in the comfort of one’s own home can help soften the difficulties of aging, allowing seniors a continued sense of control in their lives.
Safety & Peace of Mind
In home care with Coral Tree is safe. Our loving caregivers are experienced, carefully screened, bonded and covered by workers compensation. Both Kate & Cassidy make regular visits to our clients, and are available around the clock for any needs that might arise. You can rest-assured, knowing that your loved one is receiving the best possible care. And with our team looking after your loved one’s day-to-day care, you can really enjoy the time you spend with your loved one.
