What is a provider?
A provider is a caring individual who will be available (up to 7 days a week) to the elderly or disabled person providing assistance with all activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming, meal preparation, household chores, laundry, etc. This service will enable the elderly or disabled to continue living in the community, in the least restrictive environment, with dignity and quality of life.
Who can be a provider?
An individual who is compassionate, is committed to assisting others in need, and has passes all required background checks. The agency screens these individuals and does reference checks to. In certain situations, a family member, living in the same household, may become the provider. Regardless of the situation, the agency will attempt to arrange the best service possible so that the client is comfortable and content with the person providing the care.
