Yes. We understand that one of the most fundamental aspects of choosing a provider of in-home care in Jenkintown is a matter of trust. That's why all of our staff are fully insured, bonded, and are covered by Worker's Compensation. That way, your loved one is covered against any theft or damage to their home, and they're even protected if their caregiver does any damage to themselves!
Due to our flexible working hours and insurance, we're one of the most popular care providers to work for in the state. Therefore, we often have the pick of some of the best caregivers around.
The job of choosing the most suitable candidates to provide in-home care in Jenkintown falls on the shoulders of our recruitment team and boy are they hard to please. Their vetting process is one of the strictest in the industry. It involves drug screening, criminal background checks, social media observation, and the direct contact of at least three of an applicant's references.
This is all done to ensure the person responsible for your loved one's care has the right integrity and skills to do the job well.
You can't choose the time of the day that your loved one needs care, so we don't make you. That's right, our caregivers are available to supply home care in Jenkintown 24-hours a day, 365 days a year.
Our scheduling team will work alongside you to work out a schedule that puts your loved one's needs first.
Yes. It's vital that a caregiver and a senior get the chance to build a bond, otherwise, the whole process can become stressful for the person receiving the care.
It's worth noting, however, that your love one's caregiver is able to take up to four weeks' vacation per year, so there may be times throughout the 12 months when a substitute caregiver will have to take their place. When this does happen, you don't need to worry - they will be briefed in every element of your loved one's care, so they'll be fully aware of any special treatment that is required.
If your loved one requires elderly care in Jenkintown at sporadic periods over 24 hours, at least one other caregiver will also be responsible for looking after them on a daily basis. As we offer our services every minute of every day, it's impossible for the same caregiver to work over a 24-hour period without any break.
The matching process to find your loved one the most suitable caregiver to provide them with home care in Jenkintown is a simple one. We just ask you or your loved one to fill in a short Q&A to give us a better understanding of what your loved one's favorite things are.
We'll then try and match those interests against our own database of caregivers to see if there are any suitable matches. You'd be amazed at how much of a difference it can make on the first day of your loved one's new care regime when they realize that they have more than one thing in common with their new friend.
Although we find this is generally the best way to match caregivers and seniors, we're aware that it isn't foolproof. If you or your loved one aren't 100% happy with your caregiver, just say. We'll instantly pick out another suitable option.
Many of the staff we take on at Always Best Care already have some prior experience or training of caregiving, but to make sure that their standards of care match up to ours, we ask them to take part in a week's worth of training before they begin working for us.
During that time, we'll help them to improve their ability to spot common signs of illness and work on improving their communication skills. These steps are all taken so that our staff are able to provide the best senior care in Jenkintown from day one.
We also ask every member of our team to take up additional training at least once a year while they work for the company. In these sessions, our caregivers are taught about any technology making its way into the industry and how to spot any potential hazards around the home.
Any decision on who you pick to provide senior care in Jenkintown for your loved one is entirely up to you, but we'd advise you to look at the facts, rather than the figures.
FACT - we provide fully vetted, insured, bonded, trained, and monitored staff caregivers
FACT - our services are available every minute of every day
FACT - if your caregiver becomes ill, we can provide an immediate replacement
FACT - we have no minimum number of hours of care per week

By taking care of all the minute details, from a nutritional plan all the way through to a risk assessment of your loved one's home, you and your family are free to concentrate on the things that matter.
We don't feel like it's our place to say what a family member's role is in their loved one's care. All we can do is reassure you that your input and your presence are always welcome. We'll do all that we can to keep open lines of communication so that wherever you are in the world, you'll always be kept up to date on your loved one's condition.
Remember, one of the best parts of our in-home care in Jenkintown is that it's completely flexible, so you can pick and choose a plan that still makes you feel very much a part of your loved one's life and still helps to take some of the weight from off of your shoulders.

Your loved one's safety should take precedence above all else when it comes to in-home care in Jenkintown.
We take this strong stance because once seniors reach a certain age, the chance of them developing osteoporosis greatly increases. That means if they are to take a fall, it's likely that they will break a bone, which can obviously have devastating a effect on their quality of life.
Before we begin any of our caregiving services, we always carry out a risk assessment of your loved one's home to see if there are any simple and quick ways to make it a safer place for them to live in.
During their care, your loved one's mobility will also be constantly monitored, with our caregivers more than happy to provide assistance so that they can get from pointA to b safely.
No. We believe that to be able to offer truly flexible in-home care in Jenkintown, you should always have the choice of how often you require our services. We understand that every family's needs are different and we want to do our best to be able to help every senior in local community, not just the privileged few.
Yes. We now have a team of dementia-trained caregivers that know how to respond to specific situations so that your loved one is never under any unnecessary stress.
