What is hourly home health care in Palm Beach County?
We provide care givers for different types of services from 4 to 24 hours in Palm Beach County. If you require less than 4 hours we offer less than 2 hours bathing & meal prep visits to help with personal care. Based on the expertise we have in this particular field, our staff is able to provide you with quality home health care aides. For patients with long term care insurance, we design a care plan for your doctor.
The in home care plan will clearly state the amount of hours necessary for surgery recovery or ultimately long term care service. Our main priority is to give you the help and support you require while focusing on gaining and preserving your freedom.
Are there specific requirements for senior home health care at the residence?
If the house is safe for quality living, the care givers will only be responsible for coming up with their own meals unless other home health care services plans have been made earlier.
The difference between 24 hour care and a live-in care giver:
A live-in care giver stays at home 24/7 and they have their own rooms where they can get sleep for at least 7 hours a night. If care givers are needed to help patients more than twice at night, we have to offer 24 hour care and provide two care givers who will alternate shifts. As safety is one of our biggest priorities, alternating shifts between care givers will ensure they get enough rest and as such remain more attentive during working hours.
Do the hourly care givers drive?
In case you need your home health care provider to be a licensed driver in order to drive to run errands, driving you to doctor’s appointments, or taking you to shop for groceries simply ask for a licensed driver once at the time you sign for services. Home health care providers will drive you on your own or their car depending on your preferences. In case they drive you on their own vehicles you will be charged extra costs monthly.
How do we match senior home health care providers with clients?
We have many years of experience with supplying clients with the perfect home health care aides that meet their needs.
There are many factors that we consider while matching a home health care agency with a client:
- The level of attention needed based on your level of freedom
- Types of activities you prefer
- Common hobbies and interests
- If care givers are at ease with pets
- Family concern and preferences
We keep in touch with our care givers on daily basis and we expect them to alert us once they arrive at your home and start offering care. In case you ever have a problem with the kind of care you’re getting feel free to call as any time and any day.
Can I use my long term care insurance for home care?
If you have long term care insurance, we will design a plan of care depending on needs established by a physician. The care plan made will be sent to your insurance company and they will pay directly to us for the services you need. The home health care plan is updated after every three months to adjust to the needs you have. We will arrange any plan of care modifications with the help of your care provider. Should you need additional care than your long term insurance is offering it will be available at an extra cost.
