4 Things to Know About Home Health Care Providers

Your health and the health of your loved ones is of the utmost importance. It’s difficult to have any real quality of life if your health is not well looked after. But knowing just how best to ensure your family receives proper health care is difficult. Do you know all your options? Do you know about home health care? No? Well, don’t worry; we’re here to help. Here are four things to know about home health care providers.

1. Home health care providers learn about you first

The first thing you should know about home health care is the process by which home health care agencies determine the kind and the frequency of care you require. A professional, successful home health care agency will offer potential clients a sit down, face-to-face meeting, free of charge. These consultations are designed to gather as much information as possible about the client and their family. What they want, what they need, what they expect, what they can afford. And this consultation should always be a no obligation one.

After the consultation, the home health care agency takes the information that they have gained to a Registered Nurse. Together, they hammer out a  plan and schedule that delivers all the necessary care as often as it is required. The home health care agency then assigns a caregiver (or caregivers) who can provide all the stipulated care and assistance and –voila!– you have an assigned caregiver to provide all the home health care you need.

2. Home health care providers must be credentialed and specially trained

Any home health care agency worth its salt will only hire credentialed and trained caregivers. There should be an intensive pre-employment screening process –including a criminal background check– and the caregivers will also be subject to all state and federal health requirements. All nurses and caregivers should also be bonded and insured.

3. Home health care is probably cheaper than you think

In our lives, we have grown accustomed to paying a little extra for convenience. Whether we’re paying for food to be delivered to us or paying for a television streaming service so we don’t have to find content online ourselves, we will pay a little extra for convenience. As such, you may well think that home health care is a little bit more expensive than moving to an assisted living facility. But this is not true. Home health care is generally cheaper, because there are no rents and fees to pay to the facility.

4. There are varieties of home health care

Because of its inherently personal nature, home health care providers never provide a one-size-fits all service. Home health care providers always deliver a customized service. So whether you need personal care (help with the tasks of daily living), homemaking services (help with taking care of your home), companion care (care focussed on emotional and mental wellbeing), or skilled care from a care provider who specializes in treating people with certain conditions, you can get what you need from a home health care provider.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
