What is an In-Home Care Plan?
Caregiving for a loved one can change the dynamics of your family. Perhaps you are considering getting assistance to help your loved one with everyday tasks, but you aren’t sure whether an in-home care company can provide the care your loved one needs. At Right at Home, we understand your loved one’s situation is special and their care should be as unique as their needs; that is why each client we work with receives a Custom Care Plan.
Developing Your Custom Home Care Plan
From the moment you call, we begin considering you and your loved one’s particular needs. During your first call with our office, we will ask questions to help us form a basic needs assessment.
Following the call, we will set up an in-home visit with you and the rest of your family – including the family member for whom you are seeking care. This in-person visit allows us to learn more about your loved one’s needs and wishes, to answer questions you may have and to help you understand how Right at Home Marin can help.
The Right Care from Right at Home Marin
Following our initial in-person meeting, we develop a Custom Care Plan. This plan is tailored to your loved one’s specific needs. With Right at Home Marin, you will always know what services are being provided to your loved one.
We pride ourselves on delivering detailed recommendations on the kinds of services we believe will be the most beneficial to your loved one. We will arrange a follow-up meeting with you to go over the Custom Care Plan, line by line, and modify it as you see fit.
Making a Match – Finding the Right Caregiver for Your Loved One
We know the most intimidating part of selecting an in-home care company is trusting a stranger to come into your home and care for your loved one.
"They're very responsive and reacted very quickly. It was only one night, but it was needed right then and there. It was given right away. We needed a body to help him get to the restroom and watch him through the night. They were very responsive and came quickly. I looked for physical strength, knowledge, and empathy." - John R.
With Right at Home Marin, you can rest assured we do everything possible to ensure the beginning of your loved one’s care is a pleasant experience. Our system of matching clients to caregivers takes numerous factors into consideration: services needed, your loved one’s interest, and the personalities of both your loved one and the Right at Home caregiver.
By looking at the whole situation, we’re better able to provide your loved one with the best caregiver possible. Of course, if there are ever any concerns about a specific caregiver, we can search for and provide a replacement in very little time.
Providing Consistently High Quality In-Home Care
To ensure your loved one always receives the highest level of care possible, and is treated with dignity and respect, Right at Home Marin managers make regular unannounced visits to your loved one’s home. To provide you with additional peace of mind, our caregivers keep extensive notes about the care they provide. Those notes are kept on a secure on-line portal and are available to you at any time.
What to do Next?
If you are considering in-home care for the first time, you likely have questions about whether or not in-home care is the right choice for you and your loved one. To help you, we have created an adult caregiving guide which offers practical advice, information and support. Or if you would prefer, please give us a call and one of our in-home care specialists would be happy to speak with you.
We look forward to serving you and your loved one.
