Home Care Assistance specializes in continuous care. Our founders researched, studied and authored a series of health and wellness books focusing on different topics related to aging. Their Handbook for Live-In Care serves as a resource for members of the senior care industry as well as families. A Home Care Assistance live-in caregiver will stay with your loved one 24 hours a day so that he or she is never alone. We typically assign a primary caregiver who provides care for four to five days a week and then a secondary caregiver who covers the remainder of the week.
Home Care Assistance live-in caregivers must maintain a separate residence and are permitted on the client's premises only during their assigned shifts. They are strictly forbidden from using the client's property, such as phone, television, or car for their personal use. They may neither have visitors nor invite family to the home while they are working.
Our caregivers can also provide companionship and monitoring for safety during hospital stays. We can even accompany older adults on vacations, enabling them to travel in safety and freedom.
A dedicated Care Manager and Care Coordinator who personally know your case and the intricacies involved are available around the clock and constantly in touch for continued care. Our caregivers keep care binders with notes in every client's home so any updates or progress notes are recorded and accessible for you, your other family members, and doctors. We also offer complimentary quality assurance visits, updating you as often as you wish so you can rest assured that your loved one is in the best hands.
Home Care Assistance performs rigorous screening to find the most reliable and compassionate caregivers available. Before we even consider a caregiver for employment, they must prove prior in-home, senior care experience. In addition, to ensure the safety of your loved one, we run background checks through the Department of Justice on all our potential employees, including local and national criminal records, DMV checks and eligibility of employment verification. We even administer a psychological examination, developed by our founding Ph.D. psychologists, to test each caregiver for honesty and conscientiousness. All of our caregivers are bonded and insured and they are employees of Home Care Assistance, not independent contractors.
