Would I always be able to have the same care assistant?
Loyal Care strives to provide a consistent care assistant to our clients. Our care assistants are trained to watch, identify and report changes in the client’s condition. Care assistants form a bond with their clients based on trust and dependability. If a care assistant is ill or cannot make it to an assignment for any reason, a substitute care assistant will be provided. If you are in need of 12 or 24 hour care, we will provide a team of care assistants. Our care assistants, office staff and client/family members work together as a cooperative team ensuring care is optimized for the client.
Is there an option for one day a week visits? What about seven days a week?
Absolutely! There are no limited visits required. Visits can be established on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis based on the needs of the client. At times, we provide assistance for one week assignments once a year while family members have to travel out of town. Loyal Care care assistants are matched with a client for skills, compatibility and availability.
What does an agreement with Loyal Care include?
Our client agreements include information about the client-where they reside, their afflictions if any, transportation arrangement options selected, cost of care depending on client’s needs, emergency contacts, what payment options the client selects, and how to suspend or end care. Loyal Care is committed to flexibility as client needs change based on their current and changing conditions.
