In Home Care

Let A Place At Home help you or a loved one keep their independence and stay in the home they love.

We believe aging doesn’t have to mean moving away from the place where you feel safe and comfortable–there are ways to make everyday living easier.  From companionship, to providing help with activities of daily living, to providing medication reminders, our In Home Care options allow seniors to live happy and independent lives in the comfort of their own home.

Our caregivers are passionate professionals who serve with compassion. Caregivers receive continuous training on current healthcare trends, professional excellence and communication.  And, all caregivers have access to an office staff member by phone at all times so that you nor the caregiver are ever alone. Our services include:

Companion Care

Companions provide assistance to seniors with everyday things such as transportation, hobby maintenance, stimulating mental awareness, errands, mail, help with social media interaction with family, and any other non medical need.  Seniors look forward to the visits from their new friends and we find that these relationships established between the companion and senior are mutually satisfying.

Home Care Services

Caregivers provide help around the house with such things as dusting, laundry, bed making, meal preparation, and other household chores. Much like the other in-home services, seniors know they can rely on a friendly face to come visit and take care of household tasks. Caregivers receive the same reliable training as the other in home services, and the services can be combined to assure that the senior is being taken care of according to their individual care plan.

Personal Care

Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) have specialized training for personal and restorative care.  They provide assistance with activities of daily living, Alzheimer’s/dementia care, grooming and personal care, as well as serving as a reliable senior care companion. This level of care is ideal for seniors who need a higher level of help due to injuries or health that limits them from everyday functions. Seniors still enjoy the company of our caregivers but know that they can rely on them for the things that can make day-to-day living difficult.

Medication Administration

Certified Medication Aides (CMAs) administer medications via various routes ensuring seniors are taking their medications according to doctor’s orders. The service is especially beneficial to those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and provides families with the peace of mind that their loved one’s medication is safely and correctly administered.

Personal Care and Medication Administration services are guided by a professional.  In these roles, the medical professional performs an initial assessment and creates a care plan for the client.  The CNA or CMA is then trained on the specifics for that client to ensure consistent and accurate care.

Care Coordination

Our care coordination services were developed to assist seniors and families with a higher level of understanding and experience in navigating the sometimes complex and confusing healthcare system. This service differentiates A Place at Home from other home care companies by offering a professional level suite of services that includes healthcare advocacy and navigation, benefit assistance and interpretation, transition assistance, and medication management.

Healthcare Navigation

This service can encompass as much or as little help that is needed, including attending doctor’s appointments; coordinating specialists and surgeries; working with families to interpret results and recommendations; reviewing and discussing treatment options; and creating a healthcare portfolio to ensure a senior’s needs are understood and can be incorporated as part of the day-to-day care. With concierge nursing care, our professionals also can review and assist with interpreting long term care insurance and veteran benefits.

Transition Assistance

After a surgery or release from a hospital or rehabilitation, our professionals assist families with getting back to their daily lives.  Performing an assessment of the types of help a senior may need from grab bars, to specialized medical equipment, to needs for daily care and the everyday function of the household, seniors are assured that their return home will incorporate physician’s orders to allow for the highest level of health and wellness.

Medication Management

Numerous medications and administration times can become confusing and cumbersome. Our professionals work with pharmacists to pick up the medications, ensure they are correct, and fill medication sets.  The company professionals provides set-up visits to ensure seniors receive the correct medications per doctor’s orders and that medications are safely secured.

Staffing Solutions

We understand that changes in the healthcare industry have left many health care offices short staffed.

A fully staffed office or community is critical to the overall care of the patients or residents and to the proper functioning of a facility or medical office. A Place at Home offers our CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants) and CMA (Certified Medication Aides) to health care offices and communities who are in need of help.  Whether it is long- or short- term, A Place at Home can provide a passionate professional in a professional setting.   These services can range from assisting the office nurses and managers to working independently providing various cares to clients including checking vitals, running medication carts, clothing or bedding changes, dementia care, or bathing.

The cost is affordable and actionable and our rates are variable depending on the severity of tasks to perform. Our full-service CNA/CMA Staffing service provides you with additional staff and saves costs in multiple areas including:

  1. Human Resources: Hiring and turnover can be costly. APH Staffing does the recruiting, hiring, training, firing, and placing quality CNAs and CMAs.
  2. Employee costs: APH Staffing takes care of unemployment taxes, payroll fees and taxes, liability insurance, bonding, workers compensation, and all costs associated with managing, HR, and scheduling. Simply send us the shifts that can’t be filled and we will provide a professional CNA or CMA.
  3. The Call Out: When employees call out, APH staffing steps in. All you need to do is call us and we will do everything possible to get someone there in a reasonable amount of time.
  4. Maternity/Paternity, bereavement, sick leave, injury, etc: Why hire new employees to cover short-term issues? APH Staffing can fill in when you need the help.

Sometimes seniors need to find the next place to call home.
