What makes us different?
Not all home care companies offer the same services that we do at Helpers at Home. With our hourly in-home care services we do things that most local companies cannot or will not do. Below you will find a list of some of our differences. But to go into further detail as to what sets us apart visit Why choose us.
Most home care companies in our area require a minimum of 3-4 hours per visit. Maybe you don’t require that much time with a caregiver and you only need help with preparing a meal or a bath? Helpers at Home is one of the only home care companies in Michigan who charges only for the time you need a caregiver. You will not have to pay for extra time that you don’t need!
Advanced Illness Prevention
Our objective is to safely keep our Clients at home and independent as long as possible. Hospitalizations, although sometimes necessary, can be the beginning of an endless cycle of health problems. All of our caregivers are specially trained on how to identify and report the early warning signs that someone may be headed to the hospital if intervention is not made soon. Along with this and our proprietary software, we are able to greatly reduce the chance of an unnecessary hospitalization.
Customized Care Plans
Helpers at Home focuses our services around your needs. Utilizing our exclusive care planning system, we design and implement services for each person’s specific needs and preferences. Our services include an individualized care plan, prepared by a Registered Nurse that is also available for you to view online with our client portal, which focuses on the specific needs of each person. This allows our caregiver to offer superior personalized care. With our customized hourly in-home care services, you can rest assured that all your in-home care needs are met.
Many home care services still rely on paper timekeeping systems that often result in billing errors. Helpers at Home utilizes a state of the art computerized time keeping system. This assures that only services that were truly provided are billed for. You can also opt to receive your invoice online. Just another reason you can trust Helpers at Home for your home care services.
