Bringing a caregiver into your home is an important decision for you, and for our organization. Whether you’re caring for a loved one locally, or from a distance, we know you want the best possible quality of life for them. Elder Life Home Care works with you, and your loved one, to understand what type of assistance is needed to create a positive care and home situation. Understanding the unique needs of each client, and their family, and how to successfully match caregivers to those needs is at the heart of our success.
Lack of sufficient assistance at home following a hospital discharge is a leading cause of a readmission to the hospital. The first 72 hours following a procedure or hospital stay represent a critical and vulnerable time for the patient and family, often involving a new diagnosis, changes in daily habits, required medications, meal regimens, rehab exercises and more. Medicare-covered care is typically not enough to maintain safety in the home during this time.
Elder Life Home Care staff are fully insured, certified, and licensed, so they can transport you or a loved one home from the care facility or hospital, providing essential support during an often stressful time. Once home, caregivers provide monitoring, reminders and emotional support to help the individual recover successfully.
We invest time and effort in our hiring and training process. We get to know our caregivers so that we can make the best possible match for each client. A good fit, and staffing consistency contribute greatly to a successful outcome for all. Each of our caregivers go through an extensive screening and hiring process, resulting in our ability to provide licensed, bonded, and insured caregivers to all of our clients.
