Three essential questions to ask to ensure the company you choose has a strong set of core values:
1) Will I be able to easily communicate with the personal attendant and have continued access to my case manager? This is the core of our approach. We believe that you should never feel there is a lack of control or communication with your personal attendant. For this reason, you are assigned a case manager who is always available.
2) Has a sense of trust been established? We believe this is the key to a comfortable relationship and the well-being of the client. That's why we carefully screen all of our personal attendants. Keyes2Life is also a member of professional home care organizations, and we provide a written contract.
3) Am I confident that I will get the professional care promised and that there will be accountability and follow up? Home care is dynamic; a family's needs can change daily. You chose home care to allow your loved one to remain independent and retain their quality of life, not to have to deal with more paperwork and problem-solving. We make a simple promise: we will be there for your family. If you're not satisfied, we will work with you until you are.
More than 7.6 million Americans receive home care, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The actual number is much greater when you consider that it does not include informal care, which is care given by a friend or family member. Home care is generally defined as non-medical support services delivered at the home of the patient.The aim of homecare is to allow the person to remain at home longer, rather than enter an assisted-living community or nursing home. Home care may be appropriate if a person prefers to stay at home but needs assistance with the activities of daily living.
Activities of daily living include bathing, dressing, and meal preparation, but may also extend to assistance with transportation, paying bills, making appointments and simply being there to provide companionship and emotional support. Home care services are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and can be paid for directly by the client or through a variety of public and private funding sources such as Long Term Care Insurance, Workers' Compensation, and Medicaid.
We can provide quality and affordable care in the comfort of your own home. Our personal care attendants are English-speaking, reliable, fully screened, and bonded employees of our agency, with both liability and workers' compensation insurance coverage.
