Choosing to keep your elderly loved one at home rather than a nursing home or assisted living facility is a big decision. But with the assistance of Active Home Care, you can rely on our team of experienced and professional caregivers to provide the best possible care, no matter what your loved one’s individual needs may be.
We provide free consultations to anyone interested in high-quality home care for seniors in need of extra assistance. There’s no need to wait — our caregivers are ready whenever you are.
How to Get Started With Home Care in the Miami Area
The first step to receiving compassionate, quality home care is to contact us. For families living in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties, the sooner you reach out to us, the sooner we can match your loved one with an appropriate caregiver. We will also arrange a free home visit to get to know you and your loved one better.
Initial Meeting With the Family and Client
Our free at-home consultations are the way we learn about you and your loved one’s unique situation. This first meeting will involve you and possibly your loved one. You will be able to ask our coordinator questions, and they will get to know your loved one’s individual needs. We are there for you, so we want to ensure we address all your concerns during this initial consultation.
To match our senior clients with an appropriate caregiver, we have to fully understand the level of care they require. This could range from simple assistance with daily activities to more extensive care. Some of the topics we commonly discuss at this time include:
- Physical needs: Bathing, grooming, toileting and incontinence, dressing and mobility assistance
- Meals and dietary restrictions: Preparing meals that are specific to what your love one requires
- Specific schedule: Sleep, meal times and medicine
- Emotional well-being: Companionship and conversation, social interaction and outside activities
- Miscellaneous assistance: Driving to appointments, housekeeping, groceries, meal preparation and laundry
Matching Senior Clients With an Appropriate Caregiver
When you choose Active Home Care, we arrange our caregivers to begin providing services right away. But first, we match our senior clients with a caregiver we feel has the necessary skills to meet their needs. Not only do we guarantee the ability of our caregivers to provide both home care and healthcare assistance, but we understand how important it is that our clients feel comfortable with the person they’re matched with. After all, these caregivers will be by their side day in and day out.
Once your loved one is matched with a caregiver, we can arrange a meeting for them to get to know each other. We also work with you to organize the logistics of their care. This includes:
- Established schedule
- Finalized care plan
- Home access instructions
- Specific needs addressed
