How do I determine what level of care I need?
We always encourage a phone call so we can ask questions to better match your care level needs. However, Care Connections At Home provides three levels of hands-on care: skilled, personal care and companion. When you meet with a Registered Nurse, you’ll learn the appropriate level and frequency of care you need.
Our skilled caregivers are either Registered Nurses (RNs) or Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). They provide physical environmental and cognitive assessments and report their observations to you, your family, and your physician, if warranted. Skilled nurses provide hands-on care for adults and children which includes wound care, tracheostomy care and infusion therapy. We are willing to accompany you to a physician appointment and ensure you have up-to-date medical information. Our skilled nurses also educate you and your family about the medications you’re taking and can help you administer them. Perhaps you need assistance setting up your daily medications, a skilled nurse can do that for you.
Our personal caregivers are Home Health Aides (HHAs) and Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) who provide hands-on care that includes assistance with bathing, toileting, ambulating, range-of-motion, and transfers.
Do you find doing errands and grocery shopping exhausting? Let an HHA or CNA caregiver review your shopping list with you, shop for you, and return to fully stock your pantry. They can even run errands, prepare meals and do light housekeeping.
Perhaps you love to join friends for social gatherings, but you’re finding it more challenging to get in and out of your car safely or navigate traffic as easily as you used to. Let an HHA or CNA help you into your car, they can drive you safely to your lunch engagement, and get you back home safely.
Companions visit our clients in their homes as often as necessary; for short visits or 24 hours a day. They provide emotional support, caregiver assistance, light housekeeping and companionship to help clients function independently in their own home environments.
What payers do we accept?
We accept payments from the following private insurers:
- Florida Blue
These policies offer a variety of benefits that can be used to pay for care you might need at home, in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. These policies pay a daily or monthly reimbursement amount for the cost of care up to a daily or monthly maximum.
Also known as paying “out-of-pocket,” private pay means your loved one or their family will use existing savings and assets to cover the cost of care services. A majority of our clients utilize this option.
APD (Agency for Persons with Disabilities) is tasked with serving the needs of Floridians with developmental disabilities. APD works in partnership with local communities and private providers to assist people who have developmental disabilities and their families. APD also provides assistance in identifying the needs of people with developmental disabilities for supports and services.
A work injury can cause major disruptions to your life—not only to your health, but also to your career, finances, and overall well-being. The Florida workers’ compensation system is designed to compensate you for some of those losses. Care Connections At Home offers skilled services to help you get back to work as soon as possible.
