Coordination of Care
At Assisting Hands Home Care, we make sure everyone is “in the loop” regarding a client’s care plan. We start with a detailed initial assessment to determine what services are needed; then we identify any available resources like VA benefits or Medicare. Only then do we create and implement a care plan that suits the individual and their physical, mental, and social needs. Family members and physicians are appraised of any changes to the client’s condition as needed.
Home Care Agency vs. Direct Hires
When searching for a caregiver for a loved one, it can be confusing to know which way to go. If you directly hire a caregiver, you are responsible for placing the ad, sifting through and interviewing candidates, checking references and credentials, doing payroll, managing sick and vacation time (including covering for emergencies), and dealing with personnel issues. When you work with an agency like Assisting Hands Home Care, we take care of all of this and more for you. All of our caregivers are carefully screened, bonded, insured, and trained in CPR and first aid before they ever enter a client’s home. We take care of any scheduling issues and send a qualified substitute if the regular caregiver is ill.
