HOURLY SERVICES

Your loved one now needs more hands-on assistance than you can realistically and consistently provide. Both of you acknowledge outside help is needed to maintain their cherished quality of life.

WHY HIRE US

Our clients stay with us because of what we value:

  • We pride ourselves on communication among client, family, aide and agency. This ensures appropriate
    care for our clients as their condition can change rapidly and a higher level of care may be needed
    (i.e., skilled nursing).
  • Devon and I are Certified Nursing Assistants and jump in when helped is needed.
  • Once we match a client and aide, we consistently send the same aide.
  • We hire experienced aides for whom this is a calling not just a job.
  • Our aides are our employees covered by insurances (liability, workers’ compensation and unemployment).

 

INSPIRED BY WHAT WE DO

Most of our employees are Certified Nursing Assistants or Home Health Aides with a hospital or nursing home background. We also look for these personality characteristics:

  • Gentleness & watchfulness
  • Sensitivity to non-verbal needs
  • Active listening
  • Proactive problem solving
  • Regard for personal boundaries
  • Attentiveness to the client’s right to be treated with dignity and respect

Our employee screening is rigorous. Each aide is interviewed in his or her home or ours. We work hard to ensure we hire only experienced, ethical and dependable aides. Our employment process involves pre-screenings, psychological assessment, application, interviews, reference checks, abuse registry checks, certification checks, motor vehicle record reviews, criminal background checks, drug screening, orientation, ongoing training and continuous monitoring by our Care Managers.

The importance of matching clients with aides. We evaluate our caregivers’ skills, strengths and personality when matching them with clients, and continue to monitor the relationship to make certain it remains a good fit. If we don’t have the right aide, we’ll find one or refer you to another agency because the foundation of a trusting relationship is finding a aider that fits the client’s unique needs. Our Caregiver Quality Assessment helps us create a match by providing information on the dependability, integrity, personality and cognitive abilities of each aide. It’s a bit like a blind date, sometimes we are immediately successful but it can also be tricky, depending on family dynamics and other factors not apparent until a case begins.
