Hourly home care is best suited for seniors with low to medium care needs who want to age in their homes. A carefully matched PSW or caregiver visits the senior for a few hours on required days to provide care and assistance with activities of daily living.
We first work with families to identify their elderly care needs and build a detailed senior care plan for their loved ones
We then use our platform to find the best matched caregivers from our pool of caregivers based on the loved ones' specific needs and personality. All of our caregivers are thoroguhly screened and vetted, are insured and get regular training to improve their caregiving skills. They are also equipped with state of the art caregiving tools to organize and deliver daily care tasks and monitor the seniors' mood and vitals.
We engage with the families and the caregivers regularly to review and update the senior care plans and the daily tasks lists for the caregivers .
Families use the ConsidraCare client portal, and the caregivers use the ConsidraCare caregiver app to coordinate the senior care plan, daily tasks and timesheets.
We provide ongoing advice and support to families about their care needs and advocate for their loved one if and as needed.
