Our senior care in Richmond is provided by caregivers who are fully insured, bonded and covered by Worker's Compensation. We are confident in the care we provide and we are always careful that that is officially recognized by ensuring that our people are always fully covered for any eventuality.
The vetting process for caregivers is vital and we at Always Best Care attach the highest importance to it. Our caregivers undergo scrupulous checks into their background and all references that are provided are up to date and extensively checked. Our process also includes criminal record and drug testing.
We only employ the best caregivers to provide home care in Richmond which is why we insist on full employment histories, previous employers are checked and contacted to provide further references. Our caregivers are the best available and we can be 100% confident in stating that as we have taken the process of vetting them so carefully.
Our caregivers provide in-home care in Richmond at any time of the day or night it is needed. Always Best Care can provide professional people to care for your loved one twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
We realize that caring is not a nine-to-five process as the range of tasks that we undertake can be required at any time. During the day we provide a range of help that can start with waking up, right through to help with going to bed. During the night we can also provide help with any requirements you may have.
We believe that a strong bond between a caregiver and the person receiving care is important to ensure that the overall process is a success. To this end we feel that providing the same caregiver for every visit wherever possible is vital in creating trust and ultimately cementing this bond. Consistency is an important element in providing elderly care in Richmond.
We of course understand that even with the best will, situations arise which necessitate that alternative caregivers are sometimes required. This may be to cover sickness and vacations for example. In these situations you can rest assured that we will provide caregivers that are of the same standard and have been carefully matched to your loved one as your regular caregiver.
If you have care requirements that need a caregiver for extended periods during the day, or at times during the day and again at night, then it may be necessary to provide more than one caregiver. In these situations we will again make every effort to make sure that the people involved are consistently the same.
As mentioned above, we attach the utmost importance to providing the same caregiver to your loved one on a consistent basis, in order to create a bond between them. In order to achieve this we ensure that the matching process is a careful and diligent one.
Always Best Care provide senior care in Richmond of a consistent quality. We achieve this by recognizing that our individual caregivers are unique and have different personalities, different skills and will provide the best possible care when matched carefully with the right people. We get to know everything about our caregivers in advance so that when it comes to the matching process we are ahead of the game and can quickly match your loved one to their best possible caregiver.
This matching process is meticulous but also transparent. If you have any preferences for the kind of caregiver you would like to see matched to your loved one then please let us know. If we provide a caregiver that you are not happy with, for whatever reason, then we will replace them as soon as possible after you let us know.
Our caregivers are extensively trained in the latest requirements and techniques in care before they are allowed to provide care to your loved one, regardless of their background and experience. This training is ongoing in order for them to be on top of the requirements of a complex and ever changing profession.
You will find our caregivers approachable and knowledgeable, communication skills are a key requirement for everybody who provides home care in Richmond for us.
Independent providers can provide quality care, but they cannot always provide you with peace of mind that you are giving your loved ones the safest possible care.
At Always Best Care we ensure that all of our caregivers have undergone an extensive vetting process before they are allowed to represent us. They have received up to date training and are fully insured and bonded for any situation that may arise.
