Frequently asked questions
Does having home care result in a loss of independence?
No. Our belief is that independence is being in control of your decisions. Having in home care services means being in control of your activities and retaining as much independence as each situation allows. Many of our clients just need a little help to continue living a safe and productive life while some might be recovering from a fall or surgery, or other condition. Regardless of your situation, our goal is to enable you the best possible outcome while being in control of your care and daily decisions.
How can I trust a caregiver in my home?
Just like nurses and doctors, Professional Caregivers have chosen a career in compassionate care of those in need. United Family Home Health Care implements a proprietary CareAssure Screening System which includes a comprehensive background check and screening for compassion, identity, integrity, and competence. Less than 5% of all applicants meet our stringent screen and we rarely advertise for caregivers as most come from word of mouth referral from other happy clients.
How does United Family Home Health Care attract the best caregivers?
United Family is the only company that represents our Clients. By sitting on the same side of the table, we become an extension of their medical care team. This allows us to reduce stress while providing time-saving solutions for our Clients’ needs.
What if we don’t like our caregiver?
Contact us and we’ll refer another caregiver quickly at no additional referral cost.
Will we have a choice in selecting the caregiver
Our CarePairing Process works with each family to understand what unique skills and personality are desired in a caregiver. Feedback from satisfied clients usually indicates that a personality match is the #1 factor in a caregiver match, so we highly encourage client input. We will then make a referral based on our experience and your input.
What is the process of finding a caregiver?
We make the process of finding a caregiver very simple and prompt using our QuickCare Placement program. Give us a call and we’ll conduct a brief phone discussion to understand your needs. We then can meet anyone involved in selecting and paying for care at your home for an in-home needs consultation. Within 24 hours of that visit we are usually able to refer a professional caregiver to your home. Our team continuously screens caregivers beyond current demand to give you quick access to the best caregivers in our community.
