How do we attract the best caregivers in the home health care industry? Caregiving is a rewarding choice. While our rates for clients are on par with those of our competitors, caregivers at Private Home Care earn 20% more per hour than the industry average. Both factors- competitive rates for clients, competitive pay for caregivers- are possible because PHC is locally owned and operated and also because we made a conscious decision to profit less and give back more. Also, since Private Home Care is not a part of a franchise, we do not have additional overhead expenses, like monthly franchise fees or buy-in costs.
As a family run company, we understand the importance of delivering the highest quality home health care to our clients. Our staff consists of reliable, experienced, and compassionate care providers who share our dedication to exceptional service. All of our team members are skill-assessed and matched to clients based on their level of experience, education, and certifications. The majority of our caregivers are CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants) or PCAs (Patient Care Assistants), while some are LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurses) or personal companions. Their goal is to enrich our client’s lives by providing care that prolongs independence, brings joy to daily living, and relieves safety concerns.
What has set PHC apart from our inception is our commitment to communication and transparency. All clients have a team that consists of a caregiver or a group of caregivers and a Care Coordinator. Coordinators are available to clients, their families, and caregivers at all times. Their role is to communicate with caregivers on a consistent-sometimes daily-basis. They also ensure that clients are comfortable and that care plans are followed.
Caregivers are enrolled in conferences, seminars, and various gathers offered by hospitals, local universities, and other institutions. All caregivers are required to attend periodic trainings at our office. From Alzheimer’s disease to coping with arthritis, these educational gatherings, combined with ongoing training, help ensure our caregivers stay on top of the most current information available.
