Would I always be able to get the same caregiver?
Loyal Care strives to provide a consistent caregiver to our clients. Our caregivers are trained to watch, identify and report changes in the client’s condition. Care givers form a bond with their clients based on trust and dependability. If a caregiver is ill or can’t make it to an assignment for any reason, a substitute caregiver will be provided. If you are in need of 12 or 24 hour care, we will provide a team of caregivers. Our caregivers, office staff and client/family members are 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. Loyal Care employs approximately 40 trained care givers who 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.
