One in four adults is a home caregiver to a loved one.
We all become a caregiver at some point in our lives. We may care for our parents, spouse, children, neighbors or other loved ones. As we age we find that we have to make choices and decisions on caregiving needs as well as medical or physical needs.
Sometimes an immediate need arises or we are caught off-guard by an accident or sudden illness. We know that if families plan ahead and discuss in home care needs, it is much easier to make the transition than when a sudden change happens unexpectedly.
If you or a loved one desires to continue to live independently and can remain healthy and active at home with some limited assistance, then an in home caregiver skilled in home health care is a very viable alternative.
Why wouldn't I just hire a private in home caregiver?
Families seeking to hire a home care provider may sometimes turn to a private individual rather than paying to hire a professional, licensed home care agency. While at first glance this seems reasonable, it can cause numerous problems and create unexpected liabilities - which can include workman's compensation, payroll taxes, screening issues, need for supervision and backup at times when your person may not show up.
Alliance Home Health Care's In Home Care staff is employed by us and are not contractors. Our care team is made up of trained professionals who have hands-on training in infection control, nutrition, risk management, taking vitals, use of equipment, safe transfers, bathing and grooming, legal issues, Alzheimer's/dementia care, hearing loss and much more.
We provide back-up when the primary home caregiver requires time off, gets ill, has a scheduled vacation or simply cannot be there on a specific day.
A professionally trained in home caregiver can come into your home and make caring for your spouse or family member much easier. You can have the peace of mind and time off to better take care of yourself.
