Is there a written plan of care for each client? Is it modified and if so, how often?

Our Director of Nursing or Nurse Supervisor will assess the client. From the assessment, we develop an individualized and completely confidential Plan of Care for each client. The purpose is to document the type of care services needed and when the client would like to initiate care. Once the client, and family members, and local office agrees on the Plan of Care, the office staff will use that information to recommend the Caretaker who will be delivering the service, establishes the schedule and agrees to the monitoring and communication.

Plans of Care are reviewed with the client and family at least every three months, but may be more frequent based on state regulations. The review is an important process to ensure the client is receiving the appropriate level of care and is pleased with the Caregiver providing the care.

Will I have the same caregiver all the time? How will I meet my caregiver?

During the initial conversation and the in-home visit, the Director of Nursing or Nurse Supervisor will document the services required as well as important information and preferences in order for us to have enough information to ensure the best caregiver match. This process is called “intake”. After intake, a Care Coordinator is assigned to the client/family. At this point, the Care Coordinator will act as your account manager handling the client account for the life of the account.

The Director of Nursing/Nurse Supervisor reviews the intake profile with the Care Coordinator and they work together to select the best caregiver fit for the client. The Care Coordinator will then arrange an introduction between the client and caregiver to introduce each member of this new team. During that meeting, all of the involved parties review the Plan of Care to ensure that everyone agrees and understands what services are to be provided.

What if my Caregiver is sick or on vacation?

At Care Right There LLC we employ a team of caregivers so that your care service will not be interrupted if someone gets sick or goes on vacation.

The Care Coordinator will also introduce the interim caregiver to you and review your Plan of Care with the interim caregiver prior to service. Our goal is to ensure that services are provided as expected. Your safety and security are a top priority.

What are ADLs and IADLs?

Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) include the basic tasks essential for day-to-day functioning, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, mobility and toileting. Many seniors who require help with such activities are largely independent, but may require help with one or two ADLs. In some cases, intermittent help from a family member or friend may be all that is needed. However, in many cases, particularly when family or friends are unavailable and the importance of scheduling these activities is critical, informal care arrangements may not be adequate.

Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs) are considered those activities which are less basic than the traditional ADLs. IADLs, nevertheless, are important in enhancing a client’s quality of life. IADLs include such activities as shopping, paying bills, cleaning, doing the laundry and meal preparation. Many seniors require assistance with IADLs rather than ADLs. Some seniors want someone to escort them when they are shopping and help them avoid situations that might cause them to fall. Other seniors may welcome assistance with their bill paying and medical appointments. Care Right There LLC offers an array of companionship, homemaking and personal services to assist our clients with the IADLs. Please contact us at 856-244-7722 for more information.
