The first thought of most people when they hear about home care services is that it is a program for frail, older patients. While it is true that most patients fit this category of home care patients. Younger patients, even children may need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, and dressing. These patients need about a half-hour of personal, non-medical home care. However, most home health services have a 4 to 6-hour minimum daily requirement.
But, 24HR HomeCare has no such requirement, and can easily schedule a caregiver for as little as 30 minutes a visit. This is important as most health care policies do not cover non-medical home care visits. By having visits for as little as 30 minutes budgeting for home care, becomes much easier. From helping a kid in the morning to making lunch for your mother who lives with you, to all day or 24-hour care, 24HR HomeCare meets your needs in the most cost-conscience manner available.
The decision for finding a home care provider is challenging, but, most people thrive in a home setting despite chronic illness or general frailty. Inviting people into your home or the home of a loved one is not a small decision. However, home caregivers arranged by 24HR Homecare offers caregivers that specialize in assisting clients with non-medical home care. These professional home caregivers are screened by us and are insured, bonded and CPR certified. Services offered include,

The reason for the creation of the American Board of Home Care (ABHC) was that a number health care providers’ were actually nothing more than matchmaking services. A client calls for someone to help with meals and an independent contractor is given the assignment. There is no supervision of the independent contractor, no insurance provided, sketchy or no background checks and a number of other issues with the independent contractor model of providing in home care.
Membership in ABHC is only available to companies that employ, supervise, and insure their employees. ABHC members, including 24HR Homecare, are the best in home care companies in the United States. ABHC has three main goals,
1. Education – educate governments, businesses, families and seniors about the benefits of hiring home care companies that do business legally and ethically.
2. To promote legal and ethical business in the home care industry, thereby improving both industry standards and consumer confidence.
3. To serve as a platform for unified action and the development of common, lawful standards of professional conduct among in home care companies.
