All of our caregivers are among the best in the industry. One of our top priorities at Always Best Care when it concerns home care in St. Paul is to ensure that our staff members are thoroughly trained and educated to expect any eventuality. Combined with their world-class compassionate care, this makes our caregivers better than the rest! Rest assured, they are all insured, bonded, and covered by worker's compensation. You're never going to have a worry in the world when one of our caregivers is providing assistance to your loved one.
What do you think of first, whenever you think of in-home care in St. Paul? If you're like most people, then you're going to be wondering how caregivers are properly vetted. Well, when it comes to Always Best Care and our caregivers, you can be assured that our vetting process is one of the most intensive and accurate in the St. Paul area. Let's take a look at how our process works.
First of all, when a potential candidate applies to be a caregiver with Always Best Care, we will take a look at their background and criminal record to make sure everything is alright there. Then, we'll bring them through an interview process where we can review their professional history and ask various questions to get a better understanding of them. Finally, we'll contact any references to ensure that everything adds up. By then, we should have a solid understanding of the quality of care they would provide to any senior.
Senior care in St. Paul isn't something that can be done simply from 9 to 5 every day. That's why we have caregivers available24 hours a day and 7 days a week to help out your loved one whenever he or she needs assistance. This is because we know that things can happen at odd hours and your senior might desperately need someone. We never want your loved one to be left in want because we didn't have a caregiver available to help out.
We know how important it is to you that your senior has the same caregiver providing elderly care in St. Paul during every visit. So, that's one of our top priorities, too! We want to ensure that the same scheduled caregiver is working with your senior during every single visit. However, like most of us, our caregivers need to take scheduled time off eventually or they may come down with an illness.
But this doesn't mean that your senior will be left without a caregiver during those short periods of time. We will have someone else from our highly-qualified team out to help your senior until their regularly scheduled caregiver returns. However, we want those times to be few and far between. At Always Best Care, we know how long it takes for a trusting and positive relationship to grow between a senior and their caregiver. So our incredible caregivers strive to be there for your senior whenever possible to build that relationship.
Like our vetting process, this is probably one of the second thoughts you have when you start looking into elderly care in St. Paul. The matching process between a senior and their caregiver is crucial for the success of their time together.
That's why our matching process is intended to remove any doubt. We first take the preferences of your senior and match them with the personalities and qualities of our professional caregivers. Once we find a match, you will be notified and your senior can start receiving care immediately. For some reason, if we don't find a match, we'll continue re-matching until one is found.
Senior care isn't something that just anyone can pick up as a hobby and start doing. We understand that caregiving takes compassion and expertise. That's why our training program for future caregivers is one of the most intensive and thorough in the area. For our caregivers who are going to provide home care in St. Paul, they go through various training topics, such as communication methods and safety procedures. Once they are finished with their training, they are free to work with seniors. Every now and then, we'll update them on their training and education to ensure they're up-to-speed on the latest information.
Great question! Independent providers abound when it concerns in-home care in St. Paul. You've probably been wondering what makes Always Best Care different from these providers. Well, we can't speak for every single independent provider out there in St. Paul, but we can tell you that we set rigorous standardsfor our professional caregivers. As you've read in previous questions & answers, our vetting and training processes are unmatched when it comes to having the highest quality caregivers possible. We can assure you that you're never going to be disappointed with the care we provide to your loved one.
One of the things you're wondering about as you look into elderly care in St. Paul is probably the timeline, right? Well, with Always Best Care, you have no worries here. Our timeline is a short one week from your first contact with us to the time your senior is matched with a caregiver. We want the process to be as efficient as possible!
Family members can have as much of a role or as little of a role as possible in the care of their seniors once a caregiver is brought on-board. Any of our caregivers providing in-home care in St. Paul will work with you to design a system that works best for each family member, in the interest of their loved one.

So, all of our caregivers receive world-class safety training as soon as they are brought onto our team. This ensures they are ready for pretty much anything that comes their way when on the job assisting your senior.

You will never have to sign one or agree to a certain number of hours in order for your senior to qualify for our services.
