Finding the right homecare provider
It all begins with our detailed application and face to face interview process. Less than 4% of all the homecare givers we interview will meet the high
quality standards we set. AmeriHome healthcare chooses a CNA or HHA with the highest regard for your loved one in mind. This is the final question our interviewers always ask themselves before hiring a homecare giver. “Would I want this person with my Mom or Dad?”
Once a homecare giver is chosen they are fingerprinted to undergo a federal criminal background check. Additionally, a Motor Vehicle driving record report is obtained as well as a Social Security verification. We also require a minimum of 2 professional references all prior to their hiring.
We then categorize each caregiver based on their years of experience and training with specific illnesses or injuries. Such as working with stroke patients, Alzheimer and Dementia patients, Hospice patients etc. We focus on their specialty and then assign them accordingly. Our home caregivers carry their own liability insurance, and auto insurance. This is an extremely important issue to consider before hiring a homecare giver. As you do not want to be held responsible for any unforeseen circumstance.

10 Reasons Why Home Care is Better
Many people prefer home care before any other option, and for good reason. Who wouldn’t want to stay home if they could? Home is a place of emotional and physical associations, memories and comfort. Although many people can be happy in assisted living facilities, such as retirement communities or nursing homes. For many people these are better options. Some people leaving their home find it can be disruptive and depressing.
Home care is one of the fastest growing segments of the elder care market. There are also a variety of different home care options to choose from. Offering everything from light housekeeping to skilled nursing. Because of the options in home care available, people in all situations can now make it their first choice. Here are ten reasons why home care is a popular choice:
FASTER RELEASE FROM THE HOSPITAL
With home care, patients can come home sooner from the hospital. Since the services of nurses, doctors, therapists and social workers can follow patients home, hospital stays can be shorter.
SUBSTITUTE FOR HOSPITAL OR NURSING HOME
In some cases, depending on the severity of an illness or disability, home care is the answer. It can substitute for other forms of institutionalized care, including hospitals and nursing homes.
INVOLVEMENT WITH TREATMENT
Both the patient and family members can also be more intimately involved with the patient’s treatment at home. In addition to helping administer medications, and working with the patient on physical therapy. They can help by coaching them on their recovery.
We all want and need to preserve our independence. This is, perhaps, the greatest plus for receiving care in one’s own home.
Being at home is more comfortable for people than being in an unfamiliar place. They have their photographs, books, bed, bath, kitchen, telephone, television; everything is in its place, which in studies has proven to be an effective emotional healer.
FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Unlike the restricted visiting hours at hospitals and nursing homes, home provides a place where family and friends can be close to the person at all hours, whenever needed.
Patients also tend to have a greater sense of well-being and overall morale when they are in the comfortable surroundings of their own home.
In addition research has shown that recovery can be faster at home than in the hospital. Particularly if there is good quality, skilled home health care available to the patient.
Depending on the hours needed, home care can be much more affordable than nursing homes or other institutions.
Certified CNA or HHA have formal and practical training in personal care services for seniors. Hands-on personal care services for Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are provided by a CNA and HHA.
