Help! My Mom is being discharged from the hospital. Now what?
She will probably be set up with a Medicare agency for skilled services such as wound care, physical therapy and/or occupational therapy. Then you will want to decide on a practical schedule for her with a Home Health Aide. You will also want to make sure that the home is safe and accessible for her. Things to consider; stairs, carpets, grab bars, etc. We will meet with you to discuss it - at NO charge.

Our whole family is going out of town for a wedding and Grandma, who lives with me, is not well enough to travel. Do you provide Live-In Caregivers?
As long as Grandma is sleeping at night, she is the perfect candidate for a live-in scenario. A live-in caregiver provides one-on-one care and the security of someone always being there. It is a very economical option and the peace of mind it will give your family is priceless. Everyone will be able to relax and enjoy the trip knowing that Grandma is in the capable hands of JUST LIKE FAMILY HOME CARE.

Absolutely! For our regular hourly fee, we can provide someone to transport you to an appointment.
How do you find your caregivers?
We are fortunate enough to get most of our caregivers through personal referrals. Many of our caregivers refer family members, friends, and church members. We know every caregiver that we send out to your home PERSONALLY.
What happens if I don't like my caregiver?
While we make every effort to match patients with caregivers based on both skill and personality, this can happen. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your caregiver, please call us and we will make an immediate change.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Our preferred method of payment is credit card. For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards. Look for one that gives you points or rewards for purchases! We also accept check payments and assignment of benefits with insurance companies.
Do you charge extra for nights and weekends?
No we do not! The only time that we bill extra is on seven major holidays (New Years Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day) in order to compensate our caregivers for forfeiting their holiday to work.
Do you accept my Long Term Care Insurance?
JUST LIKE FAMILY HOME CARE accepts Long Term Care Insurance. If you are unsure about whether or not your insurance covers our services, please contact us. Our Insurance Department will be happy to call your company and inquire on your behalf. We will fill out any paperwork that we can to make this easier for you.

I am having an out patient procedure done. My doctor says I don't need an aide, but I am still nervous about remembering to take my pills, preparing meals, etc. What do you think?
If you are anxious about being home alone after a procedure, our suggestion would be to set up services before hand. It is always better to have something set up in advance, and you can cancel it if you decide you don't need it. As long as you give us at least one hour's notice, you can cancel with no penalties. This way you have the peace of mind that you will have a caregiver if you need one. As they say "Better safe than sorry".
