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

Yes. Having fully insured and bonded staff protects your loved one against any theft or damage to their home while they receive senior care in Herndon.
We also provide our staff with Worker's Compensation so that if they are to suffer an injury whilst working, your loved one will never be liable for any damages.
These actions are taken by us to provide all our clients with the reassurance that Always Best Care provide a service that they can trust.

How are Always Best Care's staff that provide home care in Herndon vetted?

Our vetting is one of the main reasons why we're able to provide the most reliable elderly care in Herndon. Each applicant that applies for a caregiving position has to undergo a vigorous vetting process that involves drug testing and criminal background checks.
All of our applicants also have to undergo a two-stage interview process that is designed by our recruiters to assess whether they have the right character and integrity for the role.
Finally, before an applicant is offered a position, a minimum of three character references will be directly contacted to assess whether the information provided on their resume is accurate or not.

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

Working hours is a concept that goes out of the window when it comes to providing care for seniors, as everyone's circumstances are different. As a result, we offer around the clock care, 365 days a year.
We firmly believe that a senior that needs help with the washroom in the middle of the night, for example, deserves to have access to senior care in Herndon just as much as the next person.
Our scheduling team will work alongside you to pinpoint the moments in the day or evening where your loved one could do with a helping hand.

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

On the whole, yes, although there are one or two things to take into consideration.
If for example, your loved one required help getting out of bed at seven o'clock in the morning and assistance with cooking their dinner at six o'clock in the evening, two separate caregivers would be responsible for their care. This is because we like our caregivers to work as normal a working pattern (eight hours) as possible to avoid any burnout. It also helps to ensure that no mistakes are made in your loved one's care as a result of fatigue.
There may also be times throughout the year when your loved one's caregiver becomes ill or requests to go on vacation. During these periods, a substitute caregiver will become responsible for your loved one's elderly care in Herndon. They will always be fully briefed on your loved one's needs, so any changeover is rarely noticeable.

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

We never just match our caregivers to your loved one on a whim and just hope for the best. Instead, we arrange for either you or your loved one to fill in a quick survey so we can find out a bit more about their likes and dislikes.
Once we feel we've got to know them a little better, we can match them to the most suitable caregiver. We've found that by having shared interests, such as a love of gospel music, caregivers and seniors can easily get off on the right foot.
While this process usually delivers fantastic results, we're aware that it isn't foolproof. Therefore, if you or your loved one aren't entirely satisfied with the caregiver you've been provided with, we'll happily keep on switching until we find the perfect match. This free service is just one of the reasons why we're regarded as one of the most flexible providers of elderly care in Herndon.

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

Any applicant that is offered a position with Always Best Care to supply in-home care in Herndon has to take part in a week's training course.
During this time, they will brush up on their ability to spot symptoms of illness and their communication skills so they're ready to provide the finest care to your loved one from day one.
We also ask all of our staff, however long they have been with us, to undergo yearly top-up training courses that take place over a two-day period. These courses are usually based around new technology and equipment coming into the industry so that our caregivers can always supply the most up-to-date advice to the family of the senior they are responsible for taking care of.

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

While a bargain always looks good on paper, the actual reality can be somewhat different. Elderly care in Herndon is much like this, with some independent providers offering rock bottom prices and claiming to offer the same quality of care. Truthfully, however, they cannot come close to providing the same reassurances that a company like ourselves can. Are they vetted, bonded, insured, trained, and monitored? Are they able to provide 24-hour care? Can they deliver a substitute caregiver instantly in case they get sick? Do they require you to sign a contract to guarantee their care? Do they have a minimum number of hours they charge per week? These are all the sorts of questions you should be asking, and if they can't provide the answers you're hoping for, you can be sure that Always Best Care can.

How quickly can my loved one expect to begin receiving in-home care in Herndon?

We have an industry leading, seven-day turnaround time for delivering home care in Herndon to seniors that need it most.
During that time, we'll arrange all elements of your loved one's care, from their schedule all the way through to all of the necessary paperwork, so you can concentrate on the things that matter most.

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

We'd love for you to play as large a role in your loved one's care as possible. Why? Well, however fantastic our senior care in Herndon is, there's nothing quite like family. Your company is the best form of medicine, so we'll do all that we can to make you feel like a part of your loved one's care team. That means constant communication, honesty, and support whenever you need it.

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

By coming to see us in person. We offer a free consolation service that has been designed to help give families all the information they need to decide whether Always Best Care is the right choice for them and their loved one.
No question is off limits, and we'll be completely transparent about our prices so you'll know where you stand from day one.
We've been delivering home care in Herndon for a number of decades now, so if you're still a little unsure, we'd implore you to take a look at our online reviews.

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

Safety is a paramount aspect of your loved one's senior care in Herndon, as any sort of accident or fall can have serious repercussions.
We carry out a full safety assessment of your loved one's home before we even begin our caregiving services so that we inform you of any areas that we think can be improved. This can be little touches, such as rearranging the furniture to make pathways clearer, or something larger, such as the installation of handrails in hallways.
Your loved one's caregiver will also constantly assess their mobility so that they can advise on any equipment, such as a wheelchair, which may make it safer for them to travel in and outside of their home.

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

No. Home care in Herndon should be available for everyone that needs it, whether if that's for one hour a month or 40-hours a week. As a result, we don't ask you to agree to a minimum number of hours or ask you to sign a contract agreeing to a certain length of care. Our duty to the local community is to always put people above profits.

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

Yes. Our specially trained dementia team will not only be able to respond to certain behavioral aspects of the disease but also provide you with any emotional support you might need during your time with us.
It's also worth noting that we believe that in-home care in Herndon is the best option for people living with dementia, as any changes to their environment can lead to unnecessary confusion.

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

Our team of staff that provide home care in Herndon are responsible for carrying out a wide variety of duties. Some of them include:

  • Washing
  • Bathing
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Cooking
  • Ironing
  • Mobility assistance
  • Toilet assistance
  • Much, much more

Do you provide respite in-home care in Herndon?

We provide elderly care in Herndon for anybody that needs it, so if you have a vacation booked or have some other responsibilities you need to tend to for a few days, don't panic. One of our team of fully vetted and trained caregivers can step in and take care of your loved one in your absence.
