Ask the Caregiver Expert: Penny Bandy

Ask the Caregiver Expert in the Knoxville Focus What is the difference between Non Medical Personal Care/Caregiver Services and Home Health Services?  Personal Care/Caregiver Services is a service that you pay per hour to come to your home. They offer nurses, CNAs, caregivers, housekeepers, etc. Personal Care/Caregiver Services can provide companionship, transportation to physician appointments or for errands such as trips to the grocery store, housekeeping, medication reminders, meal preparation, etc.  Every company offers a little different type of service. Some things to consider when choosing this type of service are: Are they licensed and bonded? What is the minimum number of hours they require? Who do I call if my caregiver does not show up? Do they offer replacement caregivers? Do they carry worker’s comp insurance? Does the Company do a National Background Check (Beyond State of Tn) on your Caregivers? Our services are available on an acute or long term basis anytime seven days a week up to 24 hours per day. “Personalized care for specific needs” is our promise to you to develop a customized plan of care for you or your loved one and provide compassionate caregivers to meet those needs.
