Our office refers caregiver for non-medical home care services. Most of the day to day needs of home care patients can be met with this type of care. Non-medical refers to activities of daily living such as homemaking, companionship, and personal care.
Homemaking – Activities such as housecleaning, laundry, cooking, tidying, organization, pet care, etc.
Companionship – Activities such as safety supervision, chatting, shopping, errands, orientation assistance, games, outings, and generally spending time together.
Personal Care – Activities such as bathing assistance, medication reminders, grooming, continence care/toileting, ambulation assistance, exercises, oral hygiene, skin care, etc. There are also different types of arrangements which are meant to allow clients to get all of the care they need, at as low of a cost as possible.
Hourly Care – Simply put, with hourly care, a caregiver is referred to work with the client at a fixed hourly rate. There is not generally a change in cost depending on what types of activities and services the caregiver is providing. Hourly care can be performed for as little as 4 hour shifts or less, all the way up to 24 hours a day.
Live-In Care – This unique and cost-effective care arrangement is a great option for clients who need a caregiver in their home 24 hours a day, but don’t require constant, 24 hour hands on care. Rather than an hourly fee, Live-In is a daily fixed rate, and is much less expensive. Caregivers referred for Live-In care will sleep in the client’s home in their own designated space, prepare meals for and eat with the client, and provide all the standard non-medical care services that the client needs. This is achieved for less than half of the cost of 24 hours of hourly care. This very popular service allows clients to have somebody in home at all hours of the day and night for peace of mind and security. Live-In is also an excellent option for clients with memory problems. Often times, only one single caregiver is referred to provide all of the client’s care. We pride ourselves with referring the very minimum number of caregivers in all situations, but it is especially simple with Live-In care.
