Home Care

Quality Elder Care Sacramento Seniors Need

In-home care support services assist those in need to continue living and celebrating life from the comfort of their own home.

Considering Your Options

When selecting an in-home care support services company, you will have many questions. The first thing to understand is that home care services vary from facility-based options. Chances are if you are researching elder care in Sacramento you have heard a lot about senior housing options such as a nursing home, assisted living community, adult day care, retirement community, or continuing care retirement community (or CCRC). These Sacramento elder care options all have unique benefits; however, in home care is often the preferred choice for seniors who wish to age in place in their own home. Your financial, social, and health situation will often determine which environment you choose. Depending on your loved ones needs, you may choose for him or her to receive non-medical home care to provide them with companionship and supervision throughout the day when you are unable to attend to their needs. A non-medical private in-home caregiver is as thoroughly vetted as a caregiver with Registered Nurse or Licensed Nurse Practioner experience, but may be a better fit for your budget and loved one’s needs.

FREE In-Home Care Assessment

An in-home care assessment allows you to sit down with a professional Care Navigator in your home to gain a better understanding of how our caregivers may assist you. We take this opportunity to learn more about you and what you are looking for in a home care provider. There are six main functions to a home assessment:

  1. A Comprehensive Needs Assessment. Activities of daily living, cognitive function, and mobility that fit among our list of in-home care services and includes most of the needs we come across
  2. Preferences and Daily Routines. We help create or uphold daily routines by customizing our services to each individual
  3. Health and Medication. We assist with doctors visits and help with medication reminders. Our caregivers have knowledge, skills and experiences that cover a variety of health conditions common in older adults
  4. Home Safety Inspection. A home safety assessment is designed to enable seniors to live independently and enjoy their accustomed quality of life without danger due to potential injury causing hospitalization
  5. Cost of home care. Every family we serve receives a Custom Care Plan specific to their needs and budget. Several factors help determine the exact cost:
    • Number of hours of care per week
    • Level of home care services received (companion, companion/homemaker/personal care)
    • Our home care services are billed on an hourly basis. This makes it easy to make a Custom Care Plan for you. To discuss the exact rates for the services you may need, contact our office. We will set up an in-home consultation to begin discussing a Custom Care Plan that meets your needs. We always provide a written rate sheet prior to initiating care services.
  6. Initial Customized Care Plan. The Care Plan is the important part that breaks down the in-home care support services and activities you would expect our caregivers to provide and help facilitate.

How We Work

The Live Well at Home difference is found in our people and our process. Our Care Navigator’s are able to assess and understand your loved one’s unique situation and recommend a custom plan for their particular needs. Our goal is to get your family member the right care as soon as they need it.

The Initial Call and Meeting

  • From the moment you call our office, we begin considering you and your loved one’s specific needs. On the initial call, we ask questions to form a basic needs assessment.
  • After the call, we set up a free in-home visit with you and the rest of your family – including the family member who may ultimately benefit from our care. This visit allows us to gather even more information, answer questions and let you understand how Live Well at Home can help.

The Custom Care Plan

  • With Live Well at Home, you will always know what in-home care support services are being provided to your loved one. After our initial meeting, we develop a Custom Care Plan. This plan is tailored to your loved one’s specific needs.

Private In-Home Caregiver Matching

  • Once we complete the Custom Care Plan, we begin our search for the most appropriate person to implement care. Our system of matching private in-home caregivers to clients takes numerous factors into consideration: services needed, your loved one’s interests and the personalities of both your loved one and the caregiver.

Care Supervision

  • Our caregivers keep extensive notes about the care they provide. The notes are returned to our office weekly, reviewed by our Care Coordinator, and are available at any time for your review. Our billing system also provides a detailed description of services and care so you never receive an invoice that does not include a line-item cost of care. The members of our Care Team make regular unannounced visits to the homes of our clients to ensure that our caregivers are following the specifics of the Custom Care Plan.

Live Well at Home can also provide care for your loved one even if they no longer live in their home. In fact, our caregivers routinely provide care in a variety of settings:

  • Independent Living Communities

  • Nursing Homes
  • Rehabilitation Centers
  • Hospitals (sitter services in addition to other care)

We also provide discharge services if your loved one is leaving a hospital, skilled nursing care center or rehabilitation center.
