WHAT IS PRIVATE CARE?
When you need home assistance, there is an alternative to asking friends or family to help you – Care Plus Home Care.
We provide in-home care to fit your schedule, whether it’s part-time, full-time, hourly, or overnight. Our experienced caregivers are CPR and first-aid trained and available 24/7. For family members, this is a great solution that supplements and / or alleviates your responsibilities at home, allowing you to work or even travel when you wish.
It also serves as a great complement to home health or hospice when you need additional assistance. Services include in-home and respite care, nursing home or hospital sitting, and additional assistance to those receiving home health or hospice care.
Our approach to Home care...
We provide a preliminary visit by our Care Manager to determine the general needs and the personal needs of the client. The General Needs and Personal Needs assessment forms are prepared, as well as the Home Safety Assessment.
As a result of the above needs assessment, a Care Plan is developed. These is the basis on which our homecare will be offered.
Once the needs of the client are evaluated, a caregiver(s) will be assigned by matching caregiver skills and experience to client needs. Other pertinent considerations, such as language, male or female caregiver, or caregiver experience and skill level, will be considered when caregivers are assigned.
The Caregiver(s) will provide service based on the Care Plan. This activity will be subject to on-going supervision by the Care Manager, as required. The Caregiver(s) will maintain a log book, kept at the client’s residence, which tracks daily activities and caregiver observations. Elements of the log book will be transferred at the end of each caregiver’s shift to the Client Medication Record and Personal Care Flow Sheet, which will be maintained as part of the client’s log book until completed, and then transferred to the client’s file at CARE PLUS Nursing Services, Inc.
On a regular basis (monthly or bimonthly, as required), a Care Manager will visit the client by appointment to review the client’s current condition and needs, the records kept by the caregiver(s), and the performance of the caregiver(s). Caregivers may be re-assigned as needs evolve. We are always receptive to the inputs of both our clients and our caregivers.
