Frequently asked questions
Does having home care result in a loss of independence?
No. Our belief is that independence is being in control of your decisions. Having in-home care services means being in control of your activities and retaining as much independence as each situation allows. Many of our clients just need a little help to continue living a safe and productive life, while others might be recovering from a fall, from surgery or from some other condition. Regardless of your situation, our goal is to enable the best possible outcome while leaving you in control of your care and daily decisions.
How can I trust a caregiver in my home?
Just like nurses and doctors, Professional Caregivers have chosen a career in compassionate care of those in need. Melos Home Care implements a proprietary CareAssure Screening System which includes a comprehensive background check and screening for compassion, identity, integrity, and competence. Less than 5% of all applicants meet our stringent screen and we rarely advertise for caregivers as most come from word of mouth referral from other happy clients.
How does Melos Home Care attract the best caregivers?
Our Golden Rule states ‘We will not refer a caregiver into your home that we would not welcome into our own home.’ This high bar was set by our founder in 2003 and is the backbone of our mission. Similar to any working professional, caregivers are attracted to organizations that have trust, compassion, stability, and hope.
What if we don’t like our caregiver?
Contact us and we’ll refer another caregiver quickly at no additional referral cost.
Will we have a choice in selecting the caregiver
Our CarePairing Process works with each family to understand what unique skills and personality are desired in a caregiver. Feedback from satisfied clients usually indicates that a personality match is the #1 factor in a caregiver match, so we highly encourage client input. We will then make a referral based on our experience and your input.
What is the process of finding a caregiver?
We make the process of finding a caregiver very simple and prompt. Give us a call and we’ll conduct a brief phone discussion to understand your needs. We then can meet anyone involved in selecting and paying for care at your home for an in-home needs consultation. Within 24 hours of that visit we are usually able to refer a professional caregiver to your home. Our team continuously screens caregivers beyond current demand to give you quick access to the best caregivers in our community.
