We’re committed to providing the HIGHEST quality care!

At Home Caregivers, LLC we use training programs developed by the Institute for Professional Care Education® to ensure that every employee has the skills and knowledge needed to provide high quality care.

 

We pride ourselves on hiring people for their compassion, experience, and flexibility. But we know this isn’t all it takes to provide the best care possible. Caregivers also need excellent skills and competency in care — and that comes from excellent training.

 

Our care staff undergoes formal training and continuing education programs developed by the Institute for Professional Care Education,
the national leader in senior care training.

 

Why does training matter?

  • Trained caregivers provide the highest quality of care to you or your loved one
  • Trained caregivers know how to recognize when medical care is needed
  • Trained caregivers can help their clients avoid injury around the home

A caregiver who is specifically trained in his or her job will provide a consistent, higher level of quality care.  Our staff is our most important asset. We’ve chosen to invest in a training program that will provide you with the highest possible level of care available.

Personal Health Supporters Program™

The Personal Health Supporters Program is an optional program that places a strong emphasis on the progression of care with setting individualized goals, putting a plan to action, and evaluating the outcomes. It allows you to stay with the basic program or choose a stronger, more interactive approach with your caregiver.

Care plan goals will be individualized for each client during a free, complimentary RN assessment. Home Caregivers will then formulate your own personalized health goals that we would support by encouragement and assistance from your caregiver.

A strong emphasis is placed on addressing specific disease processes and conditions by a specially-trained caregiver for CHF, Diabetes, COPD, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Mental health, Post-surgical/Post-partum, and Pediatric Care.

Dad had a recent Hip Replacement and is having trouble getting out of bed and around the house
