There are many reasons why Home Care Assistance makes the best, most sensible choice for senior care:
89 percent of seniors want to live in their own homes. Home Care Assistance helps seniors do so by assisting with ADLs (Activities of Daily Living).
Unlike facilities where one caregiver must divide attention between or more residents, Home Care Assistance provides personal, one-on-one care right in your own home. We even bring one-on-one care to seniors living in assisted living or other facilities.
We specialize in bringing you caregivers who are dedicated to long-term service. You can choose a caregiver from among those who are best matched to your needs and desires, fostering deeper companionship, enhancing safety, ensuring reliability and eliminating confusion.
Only about one in 25 applicants make the grade with us. For starters, we only interview caregivers who are certified by the State and have at least two years of relevant experience. Then we thoroughly check references, national criminal backgrounds, fingerprinting, driving records and legal right-to-work documentation. Finally, Home Care Assistance administers an exclusive caregiver screening exam developed by our on-staff PhD psychologist, to verify honesty, kindness, and conscientiousness.
In addition to initial training in our methods and procedures, we also provide our caregivers with continuous education around the latest developments in senior health and wellness.
Our exclusive Balanced Care™ training program is based on extensive research into nutrition, activity, and other factors that have been proven to help people age better, maximizing health and quality of life.
By delivering one-on-one care from a consistent caregiver in your own home, we greatly reduce the risk of falls, wandering, bed sores and kitchen injuries.
Taking on the role of primary caregiver for a loved one increases your risk of developing depression, sleep deprivation, job loss and even severe illness. The “role reversal” of caregiving for parents is equally stressful on Mom and Dad, especially when it comes to personal care like toileting. Home Care Assistance caregivers provide respite and relief for the whole family.
We only hire caregivers with a proven history of reliability. Our automated time reporting system requires the caregiver to check-in and check-out from your home phone–or the Care Manager is notified immediately. In the event a caregiver is delayed, your Home Care Assistance Care Manager will find a suitable replacement right away. You don’t have to do a thing.
By helping with daily activities, our caregivers enable seniors to maintain the lifestyle they are accustomed to living, surrounded by the familiarity of home, neighborhood, friends and pets. Having such comforts nearby improves mental and emotional well-being.
All of our caregivers are bonded and insured for your protection. We also take care of the responsibilities of taxes and workers compensation. All you need do is tell them what help you require.
A Home Care Assistance live-in caregiver stays in the adult’s home 24 hours a day and is available to assist morning, noon, and night. If we provide live-in care seven days a week, we typically assign a primary caregiver who provides care for four to five days a week and a backup caregiver who covers the remainder of the week. Live-in care also makes an affordable option for seniors who need long-term care around the clock.
Our helpful Care Manager will meet with you at the time and place that’s best for you to discuss your care options. Our care team will then select a caregiver who best matches your needs– You even have the option of meeting the caregiver before starting services. Then we create and confirm the plan of care and schedule. You have no obligation and no long-term contract to sign. Our Caregivers will serve you only as long as you are completely satisfied.
We’re always just a phone call away; we are standing by, ready to hear and respond to your needs at any time of the day or night. Even last-minute requests for in-home care, respite care, transportation assistance, hospital sitting or patient discharge cases are addressed quickly and professionally.
We specialize in selecting caregivers who best match the needs of our clients. We do our best to place a caregiver with a client for the long-term, ensuring consistency.
