You could be the best person to be caring for your loved one.

When you think of home care, usually what comes to mind is another person who comes to your elderly loved one’s home and cares for them daily, or hourly. However, you can be the person who cares for your loved one! You are probably already assisting with some tasks, and you can be trained alongside our professional Caregivers to gain the skills and compensation you need to continue providing excellent care to your family member.

If you are currently caring for your aging loved one, and wish to continue assisting them in this stage of life, we believe that you are the best person for the job. Did you know that you might be eligible to receive compensation for this service? Between taking the loved one to appointments, caring for their needs at home, administering medication, and providing companionship, you probably have had to take time off work already, or altogether quit your job. You can now take time off work and still maintain a stable income while caring for your aging family member.

We know that proximity is usually the driving factor behind Family Caregiving. Maybe your siblings live across the country, and now you have to quit your day-job to take care of Mom. On average, Family Caregivers spend 40 hours, or the equivalent to a fulltime job, a week caring for their loved one. All of this responsibility landed on you, and you might not have been ready for it! Maybe it’s been a lonely road so far, but you can have a professional Home Care Agency help you from now on. Caring for a loved one affects every part of your life, including:

 

  • Stress levels

Two in five Family Caregivers report that the process has been emotionally taxing. Let us connect you to resources to provide you with respite, and stress-managing habits that are effective in any Caregiver’s life.

 

  • Self-care habits

The more time spent on Caregiving, the easier it is to get burnt out. 22% of Family Caregivers report that their health has declined since taking on caring for their Loved One. Don’t care for your loved one alone – join a network of specialized home care professionals that understand what you’re going through and let us connect you with resources that help you take care of yourself while you take care of your family member.

 

  • Professional Trajectory

Caring for your Loved One might have put your career on-hold. But did you know that you can be professionally trained as a Caregiver? On average, Family Caregivers are able to keep their loved ones at home for 2 years longer when they receive formal training. We excel in equipping Family Caregivers and we can help equip you as you navigate this road.

 

  • Finances

Most Family Caregivers are spending their own resources on their family member. Half of Family Caregivers report that they have begun to use savings or taken on debt to cover Caregiving expenses. This doesn’t need to continue! You can provide care while being compensated for your time away from work to ease the financial burden on your family at this time.

We aren’t your typical Home Care Agency. We have adapted over time to fit our Clients’ needs, and we incorporate interactive Tablets and state-of-the-art Electronic Visit Verification software to ensure State compliance in a user-friendly manner. We know that out of the 40 million adults in America caring for a loved one, around 1 in 4 caregivers are Millennials, and are using technology as a part of daily tasks already.
