Myth No. 1: Agency don't care about their patients. A professional from Gentle Hearts will establish a rapport, make the client feel at ease, understand their hesitations and will make their experience as comfortable as possible. In order to accomplish this, one of our agency staff will analyze the needs before placing a caregiver in the home to ensure the caregiver is prepared and suited to meet your need. Myth No. 2: Caregivers will steal from the elderly and abuse them. Family member should ask about criminal background checks on caregivers before hiring. In addition, having protection is to make sure the company is licensed and bonded, procedures which are required of all agencies that receive payment from Medicaid/Medicare. It is important to ask if the agency provides a supervisor to evaluate the quality of care on a regularly. Myth No. 3: Hiring a caregiver is only for people who are very sick. Nonmedical care often revolves around activities of daily living (ADLs) such as eating, dressing, bathing, housework, driving and shopping. Depending on the situation, your loved one may benefit from both types of services (medical/non-medical). Myth No. 4: Only old people need home care. Although many seniors who utilize home care are 65 years old or older, it can also be used for younger people who are recovering from an injury or dealing with a chronic illness (18 yrs and above). Myth No. 5: I have no say about who comes into my loved one home. Gentle Hearts will try to match similar interests/ personalities with a caregiver and your loved ones. The client will always have a say in which caregivers they choose.
