Community Home Care
About this pro
9 years in business
CHC was a great help when I needed assistance with my Mother-in-law. They came on very short notice, were professional and friendly and very concerned about meeting our particular needs. They were also flexible in terms of scheduling which was very helpful for our family. The care was exceptional and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.Oct 24, 2011
The care and support provided by Community Home Care for my elderly relative was amazing. The caregivers were professional and also sensitive and caring. The office staff and owner were very involved and made sure every detail was looked after and were also extremely experienced and knowledgeable regarding elder care. I had a prior experience with a franchise home care agency but the level of care did not compare to what Community Home Care provided - the folks at CHC really care about making sure elderly clients are comfortable, happy and healthy. I would not hesitate recommend this agency to anyone looking for in home care!Aug 24, 2011
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have always been interested in eldercare since overseeing the care of my grandmother when I was younger and then my parents. My personality is such that I have a great deal of compassion and it was natural for me to enter this field. I feel fortunate to have experienced the interaction with the many wonderful elders I have met and also their caring family members.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Look for local, privately owned agencies with ties to the community. Check to see if the agency is licenced, insured and bonded and if they provides extensive caregiver background checks. How are the services monitored and how often are visits made by the social worker and RN. Will the caregiver schedule reflect the changing needs of the client.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?My entire career has been dedicated to elder care and it is where my heart has directed me. After many years of employment with the Department of Elder Affairs, it was a natural transition to start my own agency and to devote all my energy to the care of elders. Our caregivers are chosen for the same compassion and dedication tha I believe in as well as being highly experienced in the care of elders.
