Choosing someone to enter your home to provide care for a loved one is a big decision. You must trust not only that person’s professional skills but also their compassion. They will be assisting your loved one in a variety of ways and must be able to deal effectively with he/she no matter the situation.
It’s widely understood that most seniors would rather be cared for in their own homes, rather than in a retirement or assisted living home. After all, why would they want to leave a place they’re so comfortable in? The first step is having a conversation with your loved one to decide what the best plan of action is. If it’s decided that Home Care is the right choice, the next step is to figure out who you trust to provide care for your loved one.
So why choose Chesapeake Home Care?
Chesapeake Home Care is dedicated to providing comfort and peace of mind, for both you and your loved one. Whether you’re looking for companionship, specialized care, transportation services, skilled nursing, or more – we’re here to provide you with the best clinicians possible. Our hiring process consists of a thorough screening and a class that every applicant is required to complete. Every Wednesday we bring in applicants that wish to work for us so we can explain to them the different aspects of the patients they could be dealing with, the complexity of certain cases, and how important it is to the families of patients that their loved one is in the care of a compassionate person. But beyond that, we bring in applicants so we have one-on-one time with them. By sitting down and talking to them about their past experiences, we can gauge whether they would be a good fit with our cases. Plus, we’re able to bring them to our training facility where they demonstrate proper techniques while working with patients.
Our training facility is a great place for Home Health Aides to show that they are capable of safely transporting patients in and out of bed, in and out of wheelchairs, and other important practices. This allows our administrative staff to gain an understanding of the clinicians practical skills and potentially correct anything they may be doing wrong. This is something that truly differentiates Chesapeake Home Care from all other Home Care providers.
