What is Home Care?
Home Care is when you can get support and care from home from our trusted, experienced, and passionate caregivers. The services we provide are customized to fit your health-related needs.
What is the difference between Home Care and Home Health Care?
Home care is what we, Sweet Homemaker & Companion Agency, do. We go to our clients home and provide them with PCA (Personal Care Assistant) services that are non-medical but are health-related. Our caregivers and health aide workers make sure that our clients are in the right state of health, body and mind, through daily activities, such as exercising and going out into town, eating properly with meal plans, and daily medicine reminders. Home Health Care is when a certified, experienced health care worker, such as a nurse, comes to a client's home and helps them recover from an illness, surgery, injury, etc.
How much does Home Care cost?
Each Home Care plan is different. We recommend contacting us to see which customizable plan works for you!
How can I pay for Home Care services?
Typically, using insurance such as Medicare or Medicaid works the best, but there are programs and other ways to pay. These would include using a credit/debit card, using private health insurance (if applicable), or if you are a veteran you can go through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to apply for their VA Benefits. Contact us today to find out which one works for you!
Does your agency support and assist veterans?
Sweet Homemaker & Companion Agency gives 100% support to our veterans! We guarantee to treat them with the same respect, compassion, and care that we give our other clients.
Who needs Home Care?
Those who need Home Care usually have trouble with daily activities, such as getting around the house or going out. Most clients are elderly, but they can also be younger individuals who have underlying health problems. Our services really depend on the needs of the client!
Who qualifies for Home Care services?
Those who qualify for Home Care services will usually be approved by their insurances if there is a need. You can check out Medicare's guidelines to see if you qualify by clicking here.
Do you prepare a customized plan for each client?
We customize every plan for each client because everyone has different health needs. If you need home care, please do not hesitate to call us to see what plan works best for you!
Are there any specific services your business does not provide?
Sweet Homemaker & Companion Agency does not provide home health care at this time. This means we do not do bring in health care workers that are recommended by our client's physician. We have home health aides that will administer medicine, take temperatures, etc., but they are not qualified to do the job that a home health care worker can do for a client.
What are the advantages of Home Care?
The advantages of Home Care include: maintaining independence without interruptions from our client's daily life; personalized care and companionship by our dedicated home care workers; increased quality of life of our client's who can keep in contact with their family, friends, and pets; transportation that is available to take our client's to their doctor's appointment or to the grocery store; and assistance with medication and daily health care.
