Nursing Assistant In-Home Care
Home Care is provided in any location that may be considered home, such as a private home, independent living facility and assisted living facilities. Private Duty Home Care is an exclusive service for the elderly. Often times, seniors are placed in facilities that are frightening and the care that is received can be less than adequate. Private Duty Home Care allows one provider to provide care. The senior, therefore, receives individualized attention by a caring individual that is only focused on the elderly client. Private Duty Home Care enables seniors that are becoming unsafe or afraid in their environment to remain in their home safely.
Care is provided by experienced, compassionate individuals who are certified or registered by the Arizona State Board of Nursing. All employees are required to pass the pre-employment screening, which includes a skills exam. Employees also undergo criminal and driving background clearances, must have completed a Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) course in the past two years, have a Tuberculosis clearance in the past one year, and compete orientation. Care may be provided on a visit basis (approximately one hour) or on a continuous basis, up to 24 hours a day. Documentation is completed after each visit or shift and available to family as requested.
Most agencies employee caregivers, who are generally non-skilled personnel who are not regulated by the Arizona State Board of Nursing. While these employees are less costly, they generally are not fully qualified to adequately care for a senior throughout their aging process. Senior Care Management Solutions' commitment to excellence acknowledges the importance of using the best and thus utilizes Certified Nursing Assistants, who are directly supervised by a Registered Nurse. Although our Certified Nursing Assistants are skilled in caring for the acutely and chronically ill, they have access to a Registered Nurse 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Services that Certified Nursing Assistants provide include, but are not limited to:
- Personal Care Assistance, which includes bathing, grooming and dressing assistance
- Meal Planning and Preparation, as well as encouragement of your loved one to eat and drink fluids
- Medication Reminders
- Light Housekeeping
- Grocery Shopping and Running Errands
- Transportation Services
- Peace of Mind
