Are your staff that deliver in-home care in Manchester insured and bonded?

Yes. We'd advise any family considering home care in Manchester for their loved one to make sure that the person responsible for their care is fully insured and bonded. This will protect your loved one against any theft or damage to his or her home while they're receiving care.
On top of this, all of our staff also have Worker's Compensation, which is in place to protect your loved one from any claims of liability should one of our caregivers suffer an accident while carrying out their duties.

How are your staff that provide home care in Manchester vetted?

Our recruitment process involves several different stages and is designed to ensure that only the highest quality of candidates are granted the opportunity to provide in-home care in Manchester on behalf of Always Best Care.
Initially, a member of our recruitment department will study an applicant's resume. If they feel that their experience and personal characteristics seem to match to the role available, they will invite them in for an interview. Over the course of 45 minutes, they will assess whether the candidate possesses the right skills and integrity to excel in the role. If they're lucky enough, they will then be invited back for a final interview.
From this point on, our vetting team takes over. They'll run a criminal background check and get in touch with an applicant's references to assess whether the information they've provided on their resume and in their interview is accurate.
If the candidate does well in their final interview, they will also have to pass a random drug test that will be carried out without the candidate receiving any prior warning.

What hours do your staff provide in-home care in Manchester?

24/7. Thanks to being open every hour of every day of the year, we can offer the local community the most flexible in-home care in Manchester.
We do this so that seniors can receive care as and when they need it, as opposed to families having to work their schedule around the times that a caregiver is available.
If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to get in contact with our friendly scheduling department today.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver to provide them in-home care in Manchester on every visit?

Yes. In a lot of scenarios, caregiving is as much about companionship as it is about helping seniors overcome physical obstacles. That's why we give each senior and their caregiver the time to develop a friendly relationship that helps to make the whole process an enjoyable one for both the caregiver and your loved one.
On the odd occasion when your loved one's caregiver becomes ill or decides to book some time off, we will quickly arrange for a substitute to take their place until their usual caregiver returns.
Please bear in mind that if your loved one requires senior care in Manchester throughout the day and evening, a minimum of one other caregiver will be involved in their continual care. We generally only expect our staff to work around eight hours a day so that they have enough time to recuperate in between shifts.

How will my loved one be matched with their caregiver that's responsible for providing their in-home care in Manchester?

We take into consideration some important aspects, such as how far away a caregiver lives from your loved one's home, as well as some more trivial information, such as your loved one's favorite type of music, when we match them to a certain caregiver.
Our aim is that by matching based on personality as well as geography and experience, we can find a caregiver that your loved one enjoys spending time with.
If, however, you or your loved one doesn't feel like the match is just right, we'll be happy to keep on trying different caregivers until we find that special someone to deliver you loved one's home care in Manchester on a daily basis.

How are your caregivers trained to provide senior care in Manchester?

Any offer of employment that is made is subject to a person successfully completing a week's training course.
In that time they'll learn about how to communicate clearly, spot symptoms of illness, and assess a senior's home for any potential safety risks.
While your loved one is in their care, the person responsible for providing their home care in Manchester will also assist with their mobility and suggest any equipment that they feel could reduce the risk of your senior taking a fall.

Why should I choose your home care in Manchester instead of an independent provider?

It's simple: trust. Unless you carry out a detailed background check into an independent provider's history by yourself, you can't be 100% sure that they're a person you would trust to be in your loved one's home on their own.
Remember, all of our staff are also insured, bonded, trained, and even monitored, so you can be sure that our senior care in Manchester is something you can rely on 100% of the time.

How quickly can my loved one expect to begin receiving in-home care in Manchester?

If time is what you're worried about, don't worry. We can get your loved one's home care in Manchester up and running in less than a week.
During that time we'll carry out a safety assessment on their home, match them to an appropriate caregiver, and schedule the next 30 days of their care.

What role do family members play in their loved one's elderly care in Manchester once a caregiver has been hired?

We treat family like part of the team here at Always Best Care, as we know how much of a difference your company can make to the mood of your loved one.
At the end of the day, it's entirely up to you to decide how often you require our services, but you can be assured that we'll do all that we can to keep you in the loop about your loved one's condition at all times.
By choosing a provider of home care in Manchester to look after your loved one, it doesn't make you any less a part of their life. Come and go as you usually would and feel free to lean on us for support as and when you need it.

How do I know if Always Best Care is the right choice for in-home care in Manchester?

By talking. In an internet age where everything is done online, a little one on one communication seems somewhat outdated.
If, however, you want to learn everything about our elderly care in Manchester in as short a time frame as possible, the best option is to come and visit us for a chat.
We'll run you through every last detail about our care and answer any burning questions you might have. At the end, you'll have a better understanding of whether Always Best Care is the right choice or not for your loved one.

What steps are taken to ensure that my loved one's in-home care in Manchester is safe?

Even the slightest of falls can result in a senior breaking a bone, so we take a safety first approach to every aspect of our care so that we can offer the safest senior care in Manchester.
Along with their training in spotting symptoms of illness, our caregivers are also taught how to improve the safety around a senior's home.
They'll carry out a risk assessment on our behalf and provide a report detailing any suggested changes.
Furthermore, your loved one's caregiver will always keep a watchful eye over them, so if your loved one is struggling with their mobility, they'll always be on hand to provide support.

Do I need to sign a contract or agree to an hourly minimum for my loved one to be applicable for your home care in Manchester?

No. Our home care in Manchester is available to everyone that needs it, so you don't have to worry about signing any contracts or agreeing to a minimum number of hours of care per week.
As a result, if your loved one just needs a hand getting washed and dressed once a month, we'll be more than happy to help.

Do you provide in-home care in Manchester for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia?

Yes. Many families choose elderly care in Manchester over a nursing or residential home, as changing the environment that someone living with dementia is used to can lead to unnecessary confusion.
You should feel assured that our caregivers are well adept at quickly resolving any behavioral issues relating to the disease and will approach your loved one's care in a calm and patient manner.

If we choose your senior care in Manchester, what type of services can my loved one expect on a day-to-day basis?

Our clients often refer to our caregivers as living angels, as they will do literally everything in their power to make your loved one's life more comfortable. To give you some idea of what you can expect from our elderly care in Manchester, we've come up with a list of common duties, below:

  • Washing/bathing
  • Toilet assistance
  • Mobility assistance
  • Cooking
  • Cleaning
  • Gardening
  • Laundry
  • Transport
  • Companionship
  • Much, much more

Do you provide respite in-home care in Manchester?

Yes. We're more than happy to provide respite elderly care in Manchester in situations where a family requires someone to take over their caring duties for a short period of time.
As we provide fully vetted, insured, and trained caregivers, you can relax safe in the knowledge that your loved one is in safe hands.
