Brennan, the founder of Brennan Care Services, has lived and
worked in elder care services in the Lake Oswego and surrounding
communities for over a decade. He determined to form Brennan
Care Services over three years ago after handing off the Directorship
of the Pastoral Care Ministry for Our Lady of the Lake Church.
In addition to his own leadership and training in Elder Care
Services, he has trained scores of volunteers and employees
and spent thousands of personal hours in assessment, direct
care, and services planning for hundreds of clients.
More than any business-related missions, BCS is
driven by a core philosophy of kinship care:
believe that each individual, regardless of their age or health
conditions, has the right to their exclusive dignity and safe
independence. Our approach is to treat each client as we would
members of our own families. We frequently act as surrogates
family for those who are unable to match the demands of in-home
or facility care for aging family on their own. Tom
focuses on safety in the home as a top priority. At times,
simple changes, such as the addition of grab bars, can make
all the difference. Other clients have movement, nutritional
or other rehabilitative needs to be met. We thoroughly assess
each individual and/or couple and devise a service plan which
is an action "road map" for our caregivers and clients
and client families. From this snapshot starting point, BCS
becomes an active participant in providing defined and required
care and can adjust each plan as new needs arise.
BCS Caregivers Team
Tom Brennan has extensive experiences in matching client care
needs with compassionate caregivers. He deliberately creates
an atmosphere of mutual respect for clients and caregivers
which make turnovers a remote risk:
engaging caring and dedicated staff who understand that this
very special care work is as much an avocation as it is a
vocation, I know I can begin each case with a care team advantage.
I personally screen caregivers to be certain they possess
the three most important BCS standards for care: recent and
certified care training, high moral standards, and compassion.
These last two qualities cannot be taught and are what give
BCS an edge in direct and individual care. Tom Brennan.
BCS Care Goals
BCS has developed distinct goals for client care and caregivers
which are determined to be service-oriented:
are dedicated to helping BCS client individuals and families
in word and action. Our agile size is an advantage in directing
and shaping elder care goals and working with all medical
and family care team members. BCS is completely devoted to
our client's care and we can back our claims with a proven
care track record. Tom Brennan.
