Kindness. Knowledge. Trustworthiness.

Caring Professionals is built around these three principles. You’ll notice our difference as soon as you sit down with one of our caregivers. Our Customized Care Planning Process provides the right amount of daily assistance for any need level, and we carefully select our caregivers to best match your loved one’s personality and situation.

We wouldn’t hire anyone that we wouldn’t invite into our own home—in fact, we did just that when our own parents started needing more daily care! Tell us more about your needs! We can’t wait to learn how we can help.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Is the agency bonded and insured?2020-11-02T15:12:36-05:00

Hiring a bonded caregiver protects your loved one against losses or damages.

What is the hourly cost of care?2020-11-02T15:12:54-05:00

With Caring Professionals, you will know your total upfront costs and will receive no surprise charges throughout the process.

What is the hiring process for staff? Are the staff W-2 employees of the agency?2020-11-02T15:13:24-05:00

W-2 employees are protected by the Fair Labor Standards Acts, such as OSHA and Workers’ Compensation. If an aide is not a W-2 employee, and represents themselves as independent contractors, it becomes your responsibility, if you hire them, to be sure that the person truly is an independent contractor and is therefore paying their own taxes. If the aide does not meet the legal criteria as an independent contractor and has not met his or her tax obligations, this responsibility falls to you–the employer. Potential private employers should seek the advice of a labor lawyer to assure appropriate hiring practices with respect to federal tax laws.

Before a decision is made, will I meet the potential caregiver, and will that caregiver be provided on a consistent basis?2020-11-02T15:14:05-05:00

At Caring Professionals, we will only send workers to your home that we would trust to take care of our own family. In fact, we prefer to schedule a face-to-face meeting to discuss your care needs before you ever hire us.

What is the communication process between family and agency?2020-11-02T15:14:30-05:00

Good communication is the first step toward a good relationship. We schedule regular times to meet, review the care plan and ensure we are meeting all of your expectations. Changes in care needs are to be expected so if there are added responsibilities or changes, these need to be discussed. It is important to make expectations clear so your aide can meet those expectations.

Does the agency have the staffing to provide 24-hour care if necessary?2020-11-02T15:14:59-05:00

It’s not the case with every agency, but Caring Professionals can accommodate 24-hour care, 7 days a week. We provide you with a dedicated, consistent team of caregivers. Given the COVID-19 environment, we feel it is highly important to have the same staff members in your home, rather than having a “revolving door” of caregivers.

What services are provided?2020-11-02T15:15:23-05:00

Making sure an agency fits all of your needs is one of the most important initial questions to ask. If you have an aging or disabled loved one, you realize all too well how seemingly simple daily activities can become overwhelming. Our staff is here to offer private duty care services to help your loved one age in place. Caring Professionals offers help with getting dressed, grooming and hygiene, medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, shopping and errands and bathing. We understand that it can be hard to invite someone new into your home, which is why we offer plans that are 100% customizable to your needs and can change as your needs change.

Does the agency provide a free in-home assessment?2020-11-02T15:15:50-05:00

Beginning all services with a free, in-home assessment is imperative to understanding your needs. An assessment should identify all support services essential to living comfortably at home.

Will the agency be available after hours? Is there an on-call contact or is the on-call service an answering service? Is there a clinical person available on-call?2020-11-02T15:16:44-05:00

We provide a case manager for on-call as well as the availability of a Nurse Practitioner.

Who do you contact if there is a problem or concern with care?2020-11-02T15:17:33-05:00

We provide a case manager for on-call as well as the availability of a Nurse Practitioner.
