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

Yes. Having fully insured and bonded staff assures that we can provide in-home care in Southbury that protects seniors against any theft or damage in their home in our care.
What's more, we also make sure that all of our staff are covered by Worker's Compensation so that if they do suffer an injury while caring for your loved one, the only person liable to cover the cost would be our insurance company.

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

We make sure that every employee that works on behalf of Always Best Care has been subjected to a criminal background check, a random drug test, and have had their references verified.
These precautionary steps are taken to ensure that the person responsible for looking after your loved one in home care in Southbury is someone you can trust and rely on at all times.

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

Unlike some independent providers, our caregiving team is available 24 hours a day, all year round.
This puts the power back into your hands, letting you pick and choose our in-home care in Southbury when you need it most.

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

Yes. Keeping the same caregiver for each visit allows time for a sense of friendship and trust to develop between the two parties, which is vital if the experience is going to be a positive one for all involved.
If your loved one's caregiver becomes ill, we will have to arrange a temporary replacement so that any bug isn't passed on.
In a scenario where a senior needs care at numerous points over a 24 hour period, two or three separate caregivers will be involved in their home care in Southbury on a daily basis. This is done to ensure that each caregiver has enough time to fully recuperate in between their shifts.

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

We'll match your loved one to the most appropriate caregiver based on three factors:
Location - does the caregiver live within a commutable distance to the senior's home?
Needs - does the senior need physical assistance getting out of their bed or up from a sitting position?
Personality - does the senior have any particular hobbies or interests?
Once we find out the answers to these questions, we can go about finding the perfect person to provide your loved one's home care in Southbury.

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

Each new recruit that we take on has to take part in a 5-day training course before they're allowed to start their caregiving duties.
We largely focus on three main subject areas (symptom spotting, communication, and risk assessment) so that each caregiver has a solid understanding of the most important topics involved in caregiving.
It's important to note that many of the employees we take on at Always Best Care have prior experience in the industry, so a lot of the time, the course is designed to ensure that their standards of care match up to our own.
Once they're performing senior care in Southbury on behalf of the company, they will have to take part in regular top-up training. This is designed so that our staff has the most up to date knowledge about any new equipment or technology that could soon be rolled out across the whole industry.

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

We're not here to criticize independent providers. For some families, they can provide a cheap solution to any gaps in a caregiving schedule.
What we are here to say, however, is why Always Best Care will always be a better choice when it comes choosing an in-home care provider in Southbury..
For starters, there's the matter of trust. All of our staff are fully vetted, bonded, insured, trained, and even continually monitored, so you never have to worry leaving your loved one in their care..
Then there's the issue of reliability. If an independent care provider becomes sick, finding someone to cover their care often leads to unwanted stress. With Always Best Care, we'll arrange a temporary substitute caregiver instantly.
And finally, there's the big issue of flexibility. Many independent providers like their working hours to be as normal as possible. We understand, however, that caregiving is a 24-hour job, so our services are available whenever you need them.

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

If you've finally made the decision that senior care in Southbury is the right choice for your loved one, there's nothing more frustrating than having to wait two to three weeks for their care to be set up and arranged.
Thankfully, because of our 20 years' worth of experience and range of resources, we can have your loved one receiving care within 168 hours of you first getting in contact with us. Over the space of a week, we'll carry out a risk assessment on your loved one's home, find the perfect caregiver, and create a full care plan of your loved one for the upcoming months.

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

We view every family member as part of our caregiving team here at Always Best Care, as your company is often the best form of medicine for any senior in home care in Southbury. Choosing a care provider can often take some of the weight from off of your shoulders, but it doesn't mean that you'll be any less a part of their lives. We'll always keep you updated about their health and behavior so even if you can't be there in person, you will be in spirit.

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

There's so many alternate facts and figures online that it can make choosing an in-home care provider in Southbury a rather confusing task.
The best way to cut through all of the noise is to come and speak to us in person. In as little as half an hour you can have a full understanding of our business and how we operate.
Our aim is to inform, rather than to sell, so you'll be free to go home and discuss with fellow family members as to whether we're the right care provider for your loved one moving forward.

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

Every single caregiver that works on behalf of Always Best Care has to take part in a five-day training course before they can begin working for the company.
During that time, we'll make sure that their knowledge regarding symptom spotting, communication, and removing potential dangers around the home are up to the high standards that we expect.
Before we begin your loved one's senior care in Southbury, we will carry out a risk assessment in their home. A final report will detail any areas that could be improved in any away to reduce the risk of a fall or accident.
Once they're in the role, all of our staff are subject to random monitoring at least once a year and also have to go for top-up training so that they're aware of any new equipment or technology entering into the industry.

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 Southbury?

No. When we say that we offer the most flexible home care in Southbury, we really mean it! None of our clients have to, or ever will have to, sign any long-term contracts or have to agree to a minimum number of hours of care per week or per month.

Do you provide elderly care in Southbury for individuals suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia?

Yes. Many families turn to in-home care in Southbury to help take care of their loved one that is living with dementia, as any change in their environment, such as moving them to a nursing home, can lead to confusion.
We have a team of caregivers that have been specially trained in how to react to certain characteristics of the condition, so you can feel confident that in our care, your loved one will be in patient and understanding hands.

If I choose your elderly care in Southbury, what type of services can my loved one expect on a day-to-day basis?

Caregivers all over the world have to perform a variety of tasks on a daily basis, and at Always Best Care, we're no different. To give you some idea of how we could help your loved one with our senior care in Southbury, here's a list of some of the duties we provide:
  • Medication assistance
