An Outstanding Care Management Team
Assured In-Home Care’s executive staff also includes experienced Care Managers who get to know our clients and their families personally. They work with families, friends, and professionals to oversee all aspects of our clients’ care. This may include coordinating with social workers, case managers, discharge planners, doctors, long-term care insurance, worker’s compensation insurance, trust officers, attorneys, and fiduciaries. First, they visit with clients and/or their family members at home to assess and evaluate each individual’s needs and environment in order to ensure the best caregiver is provided. After a caregiver is placed, they keep in touch on a regular basis with both client and caregiver to make sure our clients are receiving the best possible care. Let our highly reputable staff make a difference in your life today!
Our Caregivers are Employees, not Independent Contractors
We are proud of our care staff, and recognize our caregivers are the heart and soul of Assured In-Home Care. Please click here to read testimonials about our outstanding caregivers! We specialize in hiring caregivers who are dedicated to long-term service and carefully matched with you and your needs. This fosters deeper companionship, enhances safety, ensures reliability and eliminates confusion. Proudly we can say our caregivers are Assured In-Home Care employees, not independent contractors. In order for us to provide you with only the highest-quality caregivers, we invest much time and hard work into the recruitment and training process. Before being hired and placed in a client’s home, all of our caregivers have to pass a comprehensive criminal history background check through the Department of Justice, a DMV record check and provide verification of current car insurance. We continually educate our caregivers on various aspects of senior care, particularly concerning Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Our caregivers are licensed and bonded W-2 employees, relieving you from the inconvenience of managing taxes, Worker’s Compensation insurance and everything else involved in being an employer. Many of our competitors hire their healthcare workers as independent contractors or act as a referral agency only. Compatibility between the personalities of our clients and their caregivers is guaranteed. We tailor our services to meet each client’s individual needs and wants. If adjustments are necessary, we gladly make changes to ensure that the client is happy and comfortable with the caregiver.
