When it comes time to finding a home care provider for your family member, chances are you have a lot of questions and concerns. How does home care work? What kind of companion or caregiver can you expect? Will he or she be able to handle all your loved one’s needs? With all the uncertainty surrounding this difficult transition, it helps to have a trusted, compassionate partner you can turn to for advice.
Assessing your needs with Alta
We offer prospective clients and their families our complimentary in-home care needs assessment. Over the course of this free consultation, one of our expert Care Coordinators meets with you and your family, gauging the level of assistance required to support the care recipient and help him or her maintain as much independence as possible.
After evaluating your family’s home care goals and getting a feel for the care recipient’s physical and cognitive needs, we work with you to create a Personalized Care Proposal. This proposal recommends the type of care and optimal number of hours required. Based on this information, we then recommend several specific caregiver profiles for you to choose from.
Why Choose Us
Ways we are different
We are proponents of Continuity of Care. It is important for our memory-care clients to have a regular caregiver—we know that new faces and unfamiliarity with the client’s routine are not conducive to a positive care environment. The client and caregiver develop a crucial working relationship, trust and imperative comfort level.
We typically invite our new clients and their families to interview several different caregivers that we feel would be a good fit and then make their own decision.
