When a parent or loved one becomes ill or frail, suffers from a chronic condition, or is recovering from an injury, illness or surgical procedure, there is no better place for them to receive the care they need than in the comfort of their own home. Home health care allows your loved one to remain in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own home, close to the ones they love and close to the things they cherish, while maintaining independence and dignity. Simply put, the advantages of in-home care over institutional care are:
Comfort. Control. Continuity. Safety. Dignity.

How Does Expert Home Care Help?
The biggest benefit of Live In home care is the continuity of care. This allows for a relationship of trust to form between caregiver and client/family, which more than anything else, makes for a successful home care arrangement. Depending on the level of home care required, we can place either a certified home health aide or a home care companion into the comfort of the patient's home. They can help with daily living activities and needs such as walking, bathing, dressing, meal preparation and light housekeeping. The caregiver, working under RN ( Registered Nurse ) supervision becomes a much needed companion and provides peace of mind for the entire family.
At Expert Home Care we are now offering a 48 Hour Caregiver Guarantee, which gives your loved one the opportunity to try out one of our caregivers risk-free. If at anytime within the first 48 hours of care you are not satisfied with your caregiver for any reason, just call us and your care will be absolutely FREE... It's an offer that's unheard of in our industry. At Expert Home Care we're so confident we can match your needs with one of our qualified caregivers that we guarantee it!

Caregiving For Alzheimer’s Disease Patients
Questions To Ask Your Alzheimer’s Care Home Care Provider
Once you decide to hire Expert Home Care for Alzheimer’s care, there are some questions that you will want to ask the person or team that will taking care of your loved one. By gaining helpful information by asking these questions, you will know what to expect from the medical professionals and how they will be supporting the patient. Read on to learn about some of the things you may want to ask when getting to know the health care provider.
1. How much experience do you have with Alzheimer’s patients? It is helpful to know just how much experience that the person coming into your home to take care of the special person in your life has. Alzheimers can be quite complex and making sure that whoever will be helping care for the patient knows exactly how to deal with them and the different situations that may arise.
2. How will you keep the patient entertained? While the home care provider is not there to entertain your loved one, they should help make their life better in the time that they are there. If the medical personnel isn’t sure what your loved one likes and like to do, you can share this information with them so they are able to share familiar things with the patient. For example, they may like a certain type of music or listening to books on tape. Helping your loved one feel comfortable and providing some sort of entertainment will be helpful in many ways.
3. What hours will you be caring for my loved one? Unless you have specifically told the home care provider when they should come and care for your loved one, you will want to discuss this so you are aware of when the personnel will arrive and when they will be leaving. This will allow you to know when you can leave your home if necessary and when you should return.
4. What tasks will you be helping my loved one with? Understanding what the care provider will be doing with your loved one will also help you plan and prepare for the day. For instance, if they will be helping them bathe and dress, you can do something else and forgo this task the days they come and provide their support.
5. What will you do in an emergency situation? While you may not always be at your home when the caregiver is there, it is important to know what the medical personnel will do if an emergency arises. Will they contact the ambulance? Will they let you know? Are there others that they will notify?
When you are planning to leave your loved one in the care of Expert Home Care personnel, you and the special person in your life are in good hands. However, we understand that knowledge is important so we want you to ask any questions that you may have so you are fully aware of what is going on or what will occur while we are helping you care for the special person in your life.
