When a loved one is diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s, it can be really scary for the family. How will your family respond? How many things will change? How will you provide adequate care?
At Bluebird Homecare, we realize that this phase of life can be overwhelming. That’s why we can offer a team of specially-trained and certified staff dedicated to providing non-medical assistance specifically for families and clients experiencing dementia and Alzheimer’s.
When faced with the early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia, your parent or loved one may experience confusion, difficulty remembering or performing simple tasks, or trouble with daily activities. Because you know home is the best place for your family and is where they want to be, the Bluebird staff is available to provide non-medical assistance with common daily challenges.
Our trained staff offer assistance with meaningful Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), as well as companionship, help with simple tasks like housekeeping and meal preparation, and other more in-depth care needs associated with the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Contact us today to learn more about Bluebird and how we can help with dementia and Alzheimer’s care. We’ll reply in 60 minutes (during normal business hours) or we’ll give you a $100 credit on services.
If you send us an inquiry via our website during business hours you should expect a rapid response. If you haven’t heard from one of our trained professionals within 60 minutes, we will give you a $100 credit on your first bill with us.
We bill by the hour for most of our services. On average, the regular hourly rate is approximately $20. That number will be higher or lower depending on a variety of factors including the type, volume and frequency of services we provide for you. Most scheduled visits require a three-hour minimum.
Schedule your free, in-home consultation to discuss your specific needs, and we will gladly provide you with detailed pricing information.
Bluebird Homecare only serves private pay clients and families who pay directly for their own services. We can work with you if you have long term care insurance. We do not bill or accept payment from any government agencies, including state Medicaid programs, Medicare, or the VA.
We bill for our services on a weekly basis. We do not require a deposit. We do, however, require that you pay for our services via a credit card or ACH payment using our secure, automated online payment system. You will always receive a detailed, weekly invoice. For families who are sharing the cost of home care, we can accommodate splitting bill payments.
We can design an appropriate, customized plan of care for you or your loved one. We work with you to conduct a comprehensive initial assessment and then use that information to design and recommend a proposed plan of care. We review the plan with you on a regular basis and adjust it as necessary. With your permission, we will gladly coordinate with other professionals on your care team to make sure you are receiving the level of care that is most appropriate.
We can provide services whenever and wherever you need us. For many people, that is their own home or the home of a family member. For others, it may be an assisted living facility, nursing home, retirement community, or a hospital.
Yes, we provide services that are complementary to the kinds of services provided by home health and hospice agencies. We can easily work with them to coordinate care in a way that is most beneficial to you.
All of our caregivers are W-2 employees. Before we hire them we engage in a very thorough screening and interviewing process. Our philosophy can be summed up this way: we wouldn’t send anyone into your home that we wouldn’t send into our own homes to care for own loved ones.
All of our caregivers undergo drug screenings and a thorough background check. Unlike most agencies, we also conduct recurring, follow-up background checks on our entire team on a monthly basis. Each employee is covered by general liability and worker’s compensation insurance, for your benefit and theirs. We pay industry-leading wages and offer an attractive benefit package to attract the very best caregivers for our clients.
Our staff are trained and experienced when we hire them, but we also provide continuing education opportunities and specialty-training for the caregivers who care for our clients with special needs or conditions.
No. We work for you and are responsive to your needs. We can adjust your care plan as needed and as appropriate. You can discontinue our services at any time.
