Ready Hands strives to be the best home care company in Northern Virginia.
Here are some of the FREE, value-added services that we provide to all of our clients:
Want to meet your senior home care worker before committing to services? We’re happy to arrange for clients and family members to meet their Ready Hands Home Care Aide to discuss in-home care in Northern Virginia. We arrange the meeting at our expense, before you commit to receiving in home care services. If the match doesn’t look right, we’ll work hard to find an alternative.
Individualized Care Plans
The team at Ready Hands prepares an individualized Care Plan for each client. This is to inform our aides of their assigned tasks and any special circumstances. Each Care Plan covers all duties the aide is to perform, as well as any safety precautions that need to be remembered. We will discuss your needs with you at length before creating the best Care Plan for you.
First Day Introductions
Whenever we start providing home care services to a new client, a Ready Hands manager meets our Home Care Aide at the home on the very first day, to be sure that things get off to a good start. That initial introduction helps to reduce apprehensions a client may have about meeting his or her aide for the first time.
Actively Involved RN Supervisors
Our clients appreciate the ongoing supervisory visits by our Registered Nurse supervisors, who’ll visit at least every 120 days or as needed, at no cost. Between visits, our RN Supervisors are directly reachable, 24/7, for unlimited telephone consultation and communication with clients and families. You will never deal with a time-wasting answering service at Ready Hands.
The Ready Hands Client Notebook
Good communication is at the heart of a successful experience with in home care. We leave a binder in each client’s home with note paper where the client, family members and the home care aide communicate with each other in writing. This is especially useful when a concerned family member needs to exchange messages with their caregiver about special instructions, progress reports, etc.
We can be the “eyes and ears” for you. Should your loved one have an acute problem while receiving home care services from us in Virginia, and you’re across the country, we can help ensure that you know what’s going on. A Ready Hands manager will visit the home promptly to investigate, then report on the situation and help decide what additional action, if any, should be taken. (For true medical emergencies, our personnel are trained to call 9-1-1 unless instructed otherwise.)
