How do I know if my loved one needs in-home care?
There are a number of warning signs that can indicate the need for help at home for a senior to remain safe and thriving. First, assess the senior individually. Is he/she paying less attention to personal hygiene? Are his/her clothes dirty? Are there any bruises or other signs of an injury, such as a fall? Then check the home environment for unopened mail piled up, clutter and disarray, expired (or not enough) food, scorch marks on pans or countertops. We provide a free in-home consultation to go over these and other red flags, and to share ways that we can help. Contact us any time and we’ll be happy to schedule a consultation at your convenience.
What are my payment options for home care services?
We accept a variety of payment options for our non-medical in-home care services, including cash, checks, all major credit cards, Veterans Aid and Attendance Benefit (for war era veterans, spouses, and widows), and long-term care insurance.
Are your caregivers insured and bonded?
Yes, all of our caregivers are fully insured and bonded for your peace of mind. Additionally, our caregivers are employees of our agency, meaning you will never need to worry about payroll taxes, worker’s compensation insurance, or other obligations of those who hire a private caregiver independently.
How are your caregivers trained?
Each of our caregivers undergoes extensive, hands-on training to ensure each person is fully equipped to provide the highest possible level of care and to meet the unique needs of each senior we serve.
