Are your staff that deliver senior care in Monroe insured and bonded?

Yes. All of Always Best Care's staff are fully bonded and insured, which means your loved one is covered against any theft or damage in their home.
As we know trust is such an important aspect of your loved one's elderly care in Monroe, so we also provide full Worker's Compensation for all of our staff. As a result, if they are to suffer an injury while carrying out their work, your loved one won't be liable for any damages.

How are your staff that provide senior care in Monroe vetted?

As a caregiving position requires huge levels of trust, every applicant that applies for a position with Always Best Care has to undergo a criminal background check and pass a drugs test.
Not only that, they also have to pass two interviews and have at least three references to verify certain claims on their resume.
We take these precautionary steps to ensure that your loved one receives only the finest in-home care in Monroe.

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

Caregiving isn't a nine to five job, as many seniors require assistance throughout the day and evening. As a result, we offer a 24 hour service so that your loved one can receive senior care in Monroe at 11 o'clock at night as well as four o clock in the morning.
We fit our schedule to suit you, so no matter how bizarre your request is, we're sure we can help you out in some way.

Will my loved one have the same caregiver to provide them elderly care in Monroe on every visit?

Yes. One of the things we pride ourselves on is the relationship between our caregivers and seniors. The only way we can allow that relationship to grow is by letting them spend time in each other's company.
Once in a while, your loved one's caregiver may take a vacation or a few days off sick, in which case a substitute caregiver will be arranged. They'll provide exactly the same high level of senior care in Monroe that your loved one is used to.
It's also worth taking into consideration that if your loved one's needs care at several points throughout a 24 hour period, it's extremely likely that two or more caregivers will be scheduled on a daily basis. We do this so each caregiver has an appropriate amount of rest between shifts so that they can always provide attentive care.

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

Unlike some of our competitors, choosing your loved one's caregiver is a process we give a lot of time and thought to.
For starters, we have to take into consideration your loved one's physical needs. For example, do they need help being lifted out of bed in the morning? If so, they may require a caregiver with a certain amount of physical strength.
The other main part of our matching process is based on your loved one's personality. We'll ask you or them to fill out a survey so that we can get to know them a little better. Once we've found out some of their hobbies and interests, we'll match them against our existing team of caregivers to find the perfect match.
Having something in commonis a great starting point for any new relationship to develop, and it helps to make our elderly care in Monroe just that extra bit special.

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

Aside from the fact that many of the new employees we take on to provide senior care in Monroe already have experience in the industry, we also ask them to take part in a week's induction training.
Over the course of five days, we teach any recruits about the basics of symptom spotting and how to make a senior's home safer. We also touch on the standards of care we expect, with integrity, communication, and patience providing the backbone of our business.
Once providing care, our staff also have to take part in yearly top-up training courses, which are designed to keep them up to date with any technology or equipment that has recently made its way into the industry.

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

The obvious choice of why someone would pick an independent care provider over a company such as ourselves is cost, but with Always Best Care providing competitive rates and a range of additional benefits, we think our services represent excellent value for money. To give you some idea as to why our home care in Monroe is one of the best in the country, we've created a short list of benefits when compared to an independent provider, below:

  • Unlike independent providers, all of our staff are insured, bonded, vetted, trained, and monitored. That means less time worrying and more time getting on with the things you need to.
  • Our staff are available 24 hours. With Always Best Care, you'll never have to plan your schedule around a caregiver's working hours.
  • We're available 365 days a year. While an independent provider may require time off during the holidays or while they go on vacation, with Always Best Care you never have to worry. We have the resources to have a substitute caregiver available.

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

As we offer 24-hour care, you really are free to choose a caregiving schedule with Always Best Care that still lets you play a large role in your loved one's life.
In the event that you live far away from your loved one and need to be able to trust someone to look after them in your absence, please be assured that we'll provide you with daily updates about their condition.
Our senior care in Monroe is always a team effort between family members, caregivers, and our scheduling team.

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

You can spend hours reading about different providers of senior care in Monroe, so we say to almost every new family interested in our services to come in for a chat and a coffee.
We'll be happy to answer any lingering questions you might have about our services, and at the same time, we'll also run you through all of our transparent pricing so you can work out how it matches in regards to your budget.
Although it may seem like an ideal opportunity for us to sell you our services, we promise that our primary aim is just to provide you with the information that lets you make an informed decision on your loved one's future.

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

Safety is one of the fundamental aspects of our home care in Monroe. From the moment any new recruits step through our doors for the first time they are taught about the importance of spotting symptoms of illness and how to make a senior's home safer for them to live in.
We carry out a safety assessment on every senior's home before we begin our services so that the chances of them having an accident are greatly reduced. Our caregivers are also responsible for analyzing and helping out with your loved one's mobility at all times, and they'll be more than happy to suggest any equipment should they feel it could make your loved one's life easier.

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

No. We want every senior in the local area to be able to have access to elderly care in Monroe as and when they need it, so we don't ask you to sign up to any contracts or hourly minimums.
Simply get in touch with our scheduling team and let them know how often you'll require our services.

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

Yes. Due to the way the disease affects certain elements of a person's personality, it's important to have a caregiving team in place that knows the best way to respond to certain behavioral changes.
Thankfully, our specifically trained team of dementia caregivers can do just that, with their compassion and patience at the heart of everything they do.
Many families often choose non-medical In-home care in Monroe before a nursing or residential home as changing the environment of someone living with dementia can lead to huge confusion on a daily basis. If you want to find out more about our unique dementia care, get in touch with us today for a quick chat.

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

Our caregivers are there not only to help a senior in their times of need but also to make their life a lot easier. To give you some idea as to what you can expect from our senior car in Monroe, we've come up with a quick list, below:

  • Laundry
  • Ironing
  • Vacuuming
  • Pet care
  • Plant care
  • Transport
  • Cooking
  • Washing assistance
  • Bathroom assistance
  • Mobility assistance
  • Much, much more

Do you provide respite senior care in Monroe?

Yes. If you've got a vacation coming up and you need someone to provide in-home care in Monroe for your loved one, our respite service could be the perfect choice for you.
One or more of our fully trained and vetted caregivers will take over the mantle in your absence, providing your loved one with attentive and reliable care.
