What is our caregiver selection process?
Great caregivers are challenging to find, so we assess your spouse's caregivers to ensure they have integrity, compassion, dedication, and are resourceful. Every caregiver who walks through your front door must undergo a rigorous eight-step hiring process, including reviewing skills, experience, work-related values, background, substance abuse, and a physical check. Throughout the hiring process, we assess their verbal and writing skills to ensure they can immediately relate to your spouse when they walk through their front door. Additionally, they are supervised and trained by our nursing staff to help them further develop their skills.
How often do we evaluate and update your spouse’s plan of care?
We continuously refine your spouse's care plan to ensure they are receiving the best care possible. Our caregivers document the activities they perform at every visit and alert us to any changes regarding your spouse's care. Additionally, we conduct field supervision visits during which we review and update the care plan as needed.
Can we provide care for your spouse on a short term basis?
Yes, we can! Our care is always determined by what your spouse needs. We have a respite care program designed specifically for short term care needs.
Can we care for your spouse if they are in a facility (hospital, nursing home, or assisted living)?
Yes, we can. We provide care services to almost anywhere they call home.
How will you know what care your spouse received from our caregivers?
Our caregivers document the care they provide in our mobile app to enhance the service we provide your spouse. They write daily notes, activities, observations, and other pertinent information. This information is shared with your spouse's caregiving team to promote transparency and the sharing of best practices for your spouse's benefit. This information is also shared with you through our online family portal. Families who use our service love this feature because it lets them know how their spouse's day went and the care they received.
How soon can we start?
Once you have met with our care navigator for a home safety evaluation and assessment to determine your spouse's care needs, we will develop a comprehensive care plan and train and orient your caregivers to start providing care immediately. This process typically takes 36 to 48 hours and is the best way to ensure a smooth start.
If you use our services, who would you contact if you had questions or concerns?
We provide you with office support staff who are available 24/7. Field supervisors regularly visit to evaluate your spouse's caregivers and answer any questions or concerns you may have. Lastly, we provide an online family portal that lets you view your spouse's weekly schedule and the caregivers coming to care for them.
Your not sure if your spouse's long-term care insurance covers non-medical home care.
If you are struggling to review and understand your spouse's long term care policy, we can assist you with the process. We have experience working with the nine major long-term care insurance carriers and can help you understand what your spouse's contract covers and, if needed, coach you through the process of getting qualified. Once your spouse is approved, we will submit the required paperwork for you every week to ensure you are reimbursed promptly for the services we provide to your spouse. We do all this as an added value at no additional cost to you.
