While we strive to minimize the number of caregivers coming to your home, based on the amount of hours and days needed, we may schedule additional caregivers in order to provide quality care. Note that we will always follow labor laws covering overtime and domestic workers.
Many of our clients come to us for assistance after a hospitalization or rehab stay, from conditions like elective surgery, pneumonia, MI, or injuries from a fall. We care for clients with increased fall risk, memory loss, heart disease, COPD, lack of safety awareness, kidney disease, stroke, diabetes, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, and many more conditions. Our caregivers can also help to break social isolation as well as provide emotional support and respite during end-of-life care.
Our services are tailored to fit the needs of each individual client. The number of days and hours, and the scope of services, affect the final cost. An initial exploratory phone conversation will allow us to quote the respective costs so there are no surprises.
Our care is considered non-medical, therefore is not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or most health insurance. We accept private pay as well as long term care insurance, certain veterans benefits, BayPath ASAP hours, and reverse mortgage funds.
No. We are non-medical so authorization is not required.
No, our caregivers are employed and supervised by us. We have the responsibility of interviewing, performing background checks, acquiring references, ensuring labor law compliance, paying taxes and benefits, supervising, bonding/insuring, and training our caregivers.
We adhere to all applicable federal and state guidelines related to privacy of personal and healthcare information. We will share only information with the caregivers that is necessary for them to properly carry out the plan of care.
