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

Of course. Having fully insured and bonded staff that provide in-home care in Louisville and the surrounding community helps to protect vulnerable seniors against any theft or damage.
We also provide Worker's Compensation to our caregivers as well so that if they injure themselves while working, the person they're looking after is never liable for any damages.

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

Our vetting process takes place over a number of weeks where our recruitment team assesses whether an applicant's character and past experiences make them a suitable candidate to provide home care in Louisville.
We know how important it is to provide staff that families can trust to look after their loved one, so every applicant is drug screened, referenced checked, and interviewed to provide added peace of mind.
Finally, please be assured that if a candidate has any kind of criminal record, no matter how petty the crime, they will immediately be rejected due to the sensitive nature of the position.

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

Monday to Sunday, 12 am to 12 pm. Yes, we provide 24-hour in-home care in Louisville, as we understand that every senior's needs are different. One senior may need assistance going to the bathroom at two o'clock in the morning, while another may need some help making their lunch 12 hours later. Whatever the time, our team of reliable caregivers will always be there to help out your loved one when they most need it.

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

Yes. We always try to provide your loved one with the same caregiver so that they have the best chance of developing a positive relationship. The only occasion when this will not be the case is when your assigned caregiver is ill or on vacation. During these scenarios, a substitute caregiver that has been versed in your loved one's needs will take over.
If your loved one requires senior care in Louisville throughout the day and evening, a second or third caregiver will be involved in their daily care. This is to give each caregiver adequate time to rest in between shifts so that your loved one receives the attentive care they deserve.

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

Unlike some of our competitors, we believe in matching seniors to caregivers based on joint interests and physical requirements.
To find out a senior's hobbies or passions, we ask them or a family member to fill out a quick questionnaire before their care begins. From their answers, we will match them to the most appropriate caregiver, taking into account the physical capabilities of each caregiver.
We find that relationships between caregivers and seniors develop much more quickly when they have things in common. For example, if a senior is particularly keen making arts and crafts, it's fantastic to have someone that can help them to explore that passion further through learning new skills or trying out different bits of DIY. Our role as caregivers isn't just to help seniors in home care in Louisville with their physical needs: it's to help bring joy to their lives as well.
Finally, our matching process isn't perfect, so if at any point you or your loved one aren't 100% happy with your caregiver, just say. We can either work together to try and rectify any areas you feel like your current caregiver could improve on or try out an entirely new caregiver altogether.

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

Any new member of staff has to undergo a weeklong training course before they begin delivering senior care in Louisville for Always Best Care. During the week, they'll be expected to work on their communication skills and their ability to spot symptoms of illness.
Although this isn't a course you can pass or fail, if the teacher leading the week doesn't feel like an applicant is applying themselves correctly, they will be dismissed and their offer of work terminated.
Furthermore, once in the role, every employ of Always Best Care that delivers in-home care in Louisville has to undergo regular top-up training. This is just to ensure that they're aware of any new equipment or technology in the industry that could be of direct benefit to the person they're caring for.

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

While independent providers can initially seem attractive due to their lower costs, there are a couple of things to take into consideration.
Firstly, it's rare to find independent providers that have been vetted, bonded, insured, and trained. Trust is such an important aspect of elderly care in Louisville, but it's entirely up to you to decide whether you value it above cost.
It's also important to remember that our services are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. That means instead of worrying about whether your independent provider can cover a certain shift when you're away, you'll know that Always Best Care will always be a service you can rely on.

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

Family plays a much bigger role in a person's care than they often tend to realize. That's because care isn't just about helping someone get dressed in the morning – it's about making them smile as well. Your company provides a senior with the best medicine possible: joy, so we want you to be involved in their life as much as your time allows.
We understand that you can't always be there when you want to be, so we'll make sure we always have open lines of communication so that you're always aware of how your loved one is getting on with their home care in Louisville.

How do I know if Always Best Care is the right choice for elderly care in Louisville?

You can always get a good idea of what to expect from a company from reading their website and online reviews, but we really believe the best way to choose a provider of elderly care in Louisville is to meet them in person.
That's why we offer a free, no obligation consultation service, where families can come in for a chat and a cup of coffee and discuss their loved one's needs. We'll run you through everything we offer along with our pricing so you can come away with the knowledge of whether Always Best Care is the right choice for you and your family.

What steps are taken to ensure that my loved one's elderly care in Louisville is safe?

Every element of our care is based on a safety-first approach. We know how fragile seniors can be once they reach older age, so we train all of our caregivers to take a patient and gentle approach.
We always carry out a risk assessment of a senior's home before we begin our services so that we can advise on any areas that we feel could be made more safety conscious. Some common examples include:

  • The removal of rugs
  • The rearranging of furniture
  • The addition of grab handles in hallways and bathrooms
  • The addition of fall alarms around the home
  • Much, much more

We're also aware that our senior care in Louisville doesn't always end in the home, so if your loved one requires help with their food shopping or getting somewhere to meet a friend, their caregiver will be on hand to provide mobility assistance if required.

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

No. As we touched upon earlier, we want families to play as large a role in their loved one's care as possible. To make that a reality, we offer home care in Louisville that comes with no hourly minimum requirements and no long contracts. You simply pick and choose the time and place that suits you and your loved one and we will be there.

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

Yes. Our specially trained dementia caregiving team would love the opportunity to provide in-home care in Louisville for your loved one that lives with the condition. They've been trained in how to best respond to deal with certain behavioral traits of the disease. Their aim is always to provide comfort and reassurance so that a person living with dementia can live as normal a lifestyle as possible.

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

Ask almost any caregiver and they'll tell you that no two days are ever the same providing senior care in Louisville. Each senior's needs are different, so a caregiver has to be ready to provide a range of duties. Some examples include:

  • Washing
  • Cleaning
  • Cooking
  • Laundry
  • Bathroom assistance
  • Dressing assistance
  • Transport
  • Much more…

Do you provide respite senior care in Louisville?

Yes. Many families choose to provide full-time care for their loved one, but there may be odd occasions where they can't cover a certain day or two due to other commitments.
If this is the case and you're worried about your loved one's care, just give us a call. We provide respite in-home care in Louisville to hundreds of families who can't always be there when they want to for their loved one.
