As Calvert continually works to assist all patients across West Texas with their home health needs, we’re proud to announce great strides in our recently - added program to the agency: Personal Care Services.
As we continue to see skyrocketing Medicare costs and a growing demand for assistance in the home – even beyond traditional home health care services; we knew the time was right to begin this program.
One of the greatest long-term needs of older adults and those with chronic illnesses is for in-home, custodial care services. Those who provide such services are often referred to as home health aides, certified nursing assistants and custodial care workers. These in-home workers make it possible for people with functional limitations to remain at home in a comfortable, familiar environment. Home health aides provide a wide range of assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, assisting with ambulation or transferring, toileting, feeding and providing medication reminders. In addition, home health aides assist with instrumental activities of daily living, such as shopping, meal preparation, making medical appointments, transportation, laundry and companionship.
Sadly, many individuals who seek personal care often will choose private individuals over a bonded, licensed agency – and that can cause many problems in the long run.
This is another major reason we saw a huge need to develop our Personal Care Services program. We have been honored to serve the people of our region for so long. And, the need is great for clients and their families to have licensed, bonded individuals taking care of them in their homes.
An additional benefit with Calvert’s Personal Care Services Program is that no tax burden will fall to the patient. Pure and simple.
Through Calvert Personal Care Services, clients can have complete peace of mind knowing that their personal attendant is competent, trained and closely supervised. Part of our client commitment is that each of our attendants are fully bonded, licensed and receives a multitude of other training before ever being a part of the Personal Care Services team.
