We know you want your loved ones to stay home as long as possible, so we work to make that happen. Our caregivers can come to their home on a part–time, full–time, or even live-in basis to provide your loved one with whatever level of care they need, without making you leave the comfort of their own home.
The Benefits of Private Home Care
The main benefit we pride ourselves on is customization. Our care plan starts with getting know all about your loved one so we can match them with the perfect Care Coodinator and primary caregiver for your specific needs.
Even more important to us is the idea that our caregivers should be more than just a caregiver – they should also be a companion. Of course they should be there to help out around the house and provide reminders to take medications, but they should provide your loved one with someone with whom they can watch movies, go for walks, and have meaningful conversations.
Avoiding Caregiver Burnout
One of the best parts of private home care is avoiding caregiver burnout. Too often, as loved ones age, a family member takes over all the caregiving responsibilities, but that’s not always in their best interests, or the best interests of their loved one. Not only is it a recipe for burnout, but because they’re not trained professionals, it also increases the chance a mistake will be made. By hiring a professional caregiver, friends and family members can remain active participants in the lives of their loved one without sacrificing their own health.
As a provider of home care services, we strive to keep the caseloads of our care coordinators as low as possible so they can get to know everyone they’re providing care for on a personal level. This has the added benefit of providing care that is consistent and transparent.
Once our caretakers have been assigned to a client, their success is evaluated based on their ability to form a bond with the person for whom they’re caring. Because that bond is such an important part of the care we provide, we make sure our clients have the same primary caregiver and Care Coordinator for as long as possible. This makes things easier for everyone because it gives you and your family a chance to know and trust them, but it also gives them a chance to get to know everything about you and your loved one from their favorite meal to how they like their coffee.
As we age and/or our diseases progress, we tend to need higher levels of care. Private home care gives you the option of starting with just a part-time caregiver, but if your loved one end up needing a higher level of care later on down the road, their caregiver can monitor their progress and adjust the level of the care they receive accordingly. We offer everything from part-time caregivers to live-in caregivers who can provide 24/7 care. Even caregivers who don’t live with their patients are available to them and their families 24/7 if they have any questions or concerns.
