Home Helpers Orange Coast
Whether a health-related concern is due to aging, illness or incapacity, the fact remains, an overwhelming majority of people simply do not know when to take a more active role in a loved one’s life.
As the name suggests, ‘Activities of Daily Living’ are the things which people engage in on a day-to-day basis. These activities are fundamental to caring for one’s self and maintaining independence. ‘Activities of Daily Living’ (ADL’s) are classified into two distinct areas: personal care and independent living.
Activities of Daily Living are everyday personal care activities such as bathing – sponge, bath or shower, getting dressed, getting in or out of bed or chair (also called transferring), using the toilet, eating, and getting around or walking.
INSTRUMENTAL Activities of Daily Living are activities related to independent living and include preparing meals, managing money (writing checks, paying bills), shopping for groceries or personal items, maintaining a residence/performing housework (e.g. laundry cleaning), taking medications, using a telephone, handling mail, and traveling via car or public transportation.
If your loved one has a medical condition that is impacting their daily living, should not be driving, is not eating properly, is lacking in hygiene, is having trouble with daily tasks. It may be time to call in a little help.
Your loved one can remain independent and safe with a little help from a qualified caregiver.
Hiring Home Helpers is the Best Option for You and Your Loved One.
Avoid being a Private Employer!
Services: We do a thorough assessment of our client’s needs and provide them with the services they ask for. Our invoices are detailed and document hours and services provided.
Hiring: We hire compassionate, experienced caregivers. We interview and screen many and only hire people we would send to our own family.
Employees: All of our caregivers are employees of Home Helpers. We pay their taxes and contribute to Medicare, UI, and Social Security. Privately hired caregivers are solely the responsibility of the client. You become the employer of record which has legal implications.
Liability Insurance and Worker’s Compensation: We have General and Professional Liability Insurance, as well as a Worker’s Compensation policy. This removes liability from the family and the client.
Scheduling: We are responsible for scheduling our caregivers and will find replacements if necessary. Should a caregiver call in sick or need to be replaced, we will handle the change for you. This becomes a crucial issue for families who have a private caregiver who suddenly calls in sick or quits.
Supervision: We provide ongoing supervision of our caregivers to ensure that the client is satisfied and the caregiver understands their responsibilities. We visit our clients regularly.
Our Caregivers are professional and are the most compassionate people you will meet.
We know that you would not open your home to just anyone to care for your loved one. Our caregivers are background screened, covered by workers compensation and bonded for your safety. We take great pride in hiring the best caregivers in the field. We will assess your situation and match your needs and personality with a qualified caregiver that you can rely on and trust.
