What to Expect

CARE, Inc. makes sure to give you a sense of peace in knowing that your loved one is very well cared for.

Resolve My Care Needs

It all starts with a simple consultation.

Aside from providing Louisiana families with premium in-home care, many people wonder what they can expect from hiring a care provider who comes to their home. Meeting someone new in this situation can be an anxious time for both for the families and the individual who needs care, so our goal is to take the anxiety away and leave you with a sense of peace in knowing that your loved one is very well cared for.

CARE, Inc. will come to your home and meet with you and your family members, or you can come to one of our offices if you feel more comfortable. At that time, we will discuss your needs and concerns, and answer any questions you have. We will also talk about the financial assistance options that may be available to you and how we can help your receive them. Many people don’t realize there are a number of state-sponsored and government waiver programs that can benefit them greatly if they qualify. Take a look at the financial options page to learn more.

Meeting Your Care Attendant

Then, after an assessment of your unique circumstances, we will match you with a Care Attendant who best suits the needs and personality of your loved one. Most often, we try to send the same person so that your Care Attendant becomes familiar with the routine, which also puts your family member at ease, as they come to know each other better over time. However, if ever your assigned Care Attendant is unavailable, rest assured we will be able to send someone to fill their shoes and who will maintain the normal routine to the best of their ability. All of our staff are rigorously trained and have completed background checks, screenings and extensive hiring qualifications. Most of all, they all sincerely care about people.

We have a service agreement that will be signed by both parties to ensure that all of the parameters discussed have been formally met on paper. However, should you wish to cancel the services with CARE, Inc. there is nothing to prevent you from doing so as long as we have at least 48 hours’ notice.

Getting Adjusted

For the first week or two, you can expect a “getting to know each other” adjustment period between our Care Attendant and the family member who receives care. Our supervisors work with this adjustment to ensure that everyone is satisfied and at that time we will do our best to maintain your family member’s comfort and his or her normal routine. We know that changes can be upsetting, so we like to ease into the adjustment phases gracefully and will accommodate and respect your loved one as if they were our own family. We are there for support and to help in any way we can.

We work out a schedule that is convenient to your needs.

The Help You Need

Having an in-home care assistant can be truly rewarding, as it benefits both the family member who needs help, as well as those who are unable to provide constant assistance or who need respite from care services.
