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.
Expert Home Care of New Jersey understands how difficult it is for both a patient and their family to find good in home assistance. We recognize that there are many choices for families today and that this can be a stressful time for everyone involved, which is why we created our risk-free, 48 Hour Caregiver Guarantee. We have been providing Home Health Care to New Jersey families since 1985, and have grown to become one of the largest licensed providers of Live-In Home Care in the upper New Jersey area. Our many years of New Jersey home care experience has produced a company that over 8,000 clients have come to rely on confidently, for help.
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 Elders
Working With Expert Home Care’s Elderly Caregivers
Taking care of our elderly loved ones alone can be a little overwhelming. Luckily, Expert Home Care can provide support when it is needed. If you have decided or maybe you are still trying to decide if hiring a caregiver is a good choice, there are some tips that can help you form a good relationship with the person caring for your loved one. Read on for information that will help when you are working with Expert Home Care’s elderly caregivers.
1. Know What To Expect. In order to have a good working relationship with the caregiver that will be helping you support your loved one, it is important that you know what to expect of them. You should discuss how they will be helping your loved one and exactly what tasks they plan to do. Also, you will want to know what days they will be coming and the times they will be there. The more you know about what to expect of the caregiver, the more you can plan for your time with your loved one and make sure they are properly taken care of amongst those who spend time taking care of their needs.
2. Be Open And Honest. Also, you will want to talk with the caregiver and be open and honest with them. You may want to share your loved one’s normal schedule with the caregiver so they know what they are most familiar with. You may also share some favorite foods and activities. And if there is anything that you want to address, be sure that you do so in a kind manner. For example, if the caregiver has been feeding your elderly mom oatmeal for breakfast, but your mom prefers eggs and bacon, it is good to have this conversation with the caregiver and come up with a happy medium. By being open and honest with the caregiver, they are able to better take care of your elderly loved one in a way that makes them and you happier.
3. Share Any Concerns You May Have. As the caregiver takes care of your elderly loved one, you may have concerns about certain things. If you do, it is important to bring these up and share them with the caregiver. For instance, your elderly dad may not like the type of television programs the caregiver is putting on and would prefer to watch something else. While this may not be a big deal, you and the caregiver no doubt want your dad to be as comfortable as possible and this small concern can provide that comfort he desires.
To conclude, when you want to have a good working relationship with your elderly loved one’s caregiver, there are certain things that can help you do just that. Start by knowing what to expect of the caregiver. Then, you should be open and honest with them and share any concerns that you may have. By working together, you and the Expert Home Care caregiver can provide the excellent care that your loved one needs.
