Questions Before Choosing Home Care
We know difficult it is when making a decision to hire personalized in-home care for your loved one.
Which is why we’ve put together a short list of our most Frequently Asked Questions from families seeking personalized, in-home care services.
When a loved one needs help, it is natural to seek friends and family to lend a helping hand. Your loved one’s health may deteriorate, which may lead you to needing 24/7 care.
This is a difficult task for any family member or friend to provide. Sometimes a private certified or non-certified caregiver is sought out to provide this care.
All too often, we have witnessed in local & national news, where the elderly is harmed and taken advantage of physically and/or financially by caregivers who claim to be helping.
- Those caregivers are not supervised or held accountable to an Agency that follows State laws and Federal regulations.
- Those caregivers are not insured or bonded.
- Those caregivers may not report the payments that you provide to them to the IRS. This is very risky to you and your loved one.
Therefore, the State Department of Health determined that a Home Care "Agency" must become licensed to provide "Private Duty" Home Care. This is intended to protect you and your loved one from harm and fraud.
- Grace Care provides Private Duty Home Care as deemed by the State.
- We are licensed, bonded and insured.
- We comply with the State of Oklahoma Department of Health and we follow Federal HIPPA regulations.
- Grace Care is an active member of the Oklahoma Partnership for Home Health.
- We hire Certified Long-Term Care Aides (CNAs) & train caregivers to become Home Care Assistants (HCAs) through Grace Care to provide Private Duty Home Care services.
This care is considered non-medical, personal care which we can provide to you or your loved one in their home or in a medical facility. Private Duty care can include housekeeping, meal preparation, grocery shopping assistance, help with dressing, bathing, grooming, and other tasks of active daily living.
Many Long-Term Insurance policies and VA Aid & Attendance programs may reimburse you or your loved one for the cost of these services. Private Duty Home Care is not covered by Medical Insurance or Medicare.
