Be sure the company…
Does Not Upcharge Nights or Weekends
Affordable HomeCare works hard to keep our rates low! We understand that nobody should have to pay more for care just because it is needed outside of normal business hours.
Has Lots of Experience
You would never want a home care company experimenting on your loved one. We have been providing quality home care services since 1989. With an estimated 70% of home care companies lasting less than 5 years you can put your trust in the experience and wisdom of Affordable HomeCare.
Does Not Refer Independent Contractors
We directly hire all of our Personal Assistants, which means we take care of all the taxes, insurance, benefits and government reporting. Independent contract caregivers often fail to obtain proper insurance or pay their required taxes, putting those they serve at considerable risk.
Utilizes Registered Nurses
Companies who have a real passion for providing quality care will make sure a Registered Nurse helps develop a customized care plan and oversees periodic quality visits for their Clients.
Has a Rigorous Caregiver Selection Process
For any home care company the Caregiver Selection Process is what can make or break a company. Those who spend a great deal of effort and are willing to explain their Selection Process are focused on delivering quality home care services.
Is Available 24 Hours
Life does not just happen during regular business hours. You want a home care company who has management level staff you can reach 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
