Long Term Care Insurance/ LTC Documentation
CAREGivers MUST complete charting notes for each shift worked with Clients who have long term care insurance- our documentation determines how and when Clients receive benefits from their insurance.
Remember to complete your charting before you clock out of your shift, return the completed notes to the office or use the Home Instead Senior Care office envelopes in the front of the Client Journal to mail the completed notes back to the office.
If you do not complete your charting notes, you will be required to report to the office immediately to complete them.

I remember you
with my heart
And I do love you!
I can’t recall
where I knew you
Who you were, or
who I was
Maybe I grew up
Or maybe we worked
Or did we bowl
There is something
wrong with my memory
But I do know you,
I know you, I know you
And I do love you
I know how you
make me feel
I remember the
feelings we had together
My heart remembers
It cries out in
loneliness for you
For the feeling
you give me now
When you leave
My mind will not
remember that you were here
But my heart
feeling of friendship
And love returned
That I am less
lonely and happier today
Because you have
don’t forget me
And please don’t
Because of the way
my mind acts
I can still feel
I can remember you
with my heart
And heart memory
Is the most important memory of all
