FAQs

Senior Care CAREGiving Q&A

A:  Caregivers are the backbone of our company and provide essential services in the community.  Our team provide one-on-one care with seniors in their homes, apartments and independent facilities in order to age in place and remain safe in the home they’ve grown to love.  We provide companionship, light housekeeping, meal and medication management, assist with dressing, personal care and transportation shifts.

A. The onboarding process here with the Lafayette Hill office provides hands on training so even the most novice caregiver can feel confident and safe when working with our clients. Our two day orientation introduces caregivers to Home Instead as a company and trains new hires on the necessary skills for caregiving. Following orientation, a caregiver mentor will provide support as you continue to grow in the company.

A. Caregivers spend a majority of their time out in the community. The tasks and expectations are different for each client, but in general prior to a shift a caregiver will re-read the clients assessments and notes for any updates. If your client is in a facility, you’ll check in with the front desk and go through the standard COVID protocol. For your first shifts, a Caregiver Mentor or the Client Coordinator will introduce you to the client, show you around the home and review any care needs! For our 24 hour clients, the caregiver you’re relieving will provide that introduction. No matter what, support is just a phone call away! If you have any questions or concerns during your shift, you can always call the office. Even after hours, our on-call service can put you in contact with a Key Player and resolve any conflict that comes up!

A. Home Instead is providing quality care to seniors in our community. We pride ourselves on professionalism and commitment to our clients while allowing caregivers flexible scheduling that fits into any season of life. We truly believe in our mission and create a culture to support our values!
