Learn more about the process of finding a caregiver in partnership with our organization.
What Is a Caregiver?
A caregiver assists in the daily needs of another person, such as an aging adult or someone with a disability. They also may assist a patient at home who is recovering from an injury or illness. While many family members consider themselves caregivers to their loved ones, professional caregivers are paid for their services and are trained to provide a wide range of support. Common types of professional caregivers include:
- Personal care attendants
- Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs)
- Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs)
Depending on the caregiver’s level of expertise and what the individual needs, one professional may suit a family better than another. Finding the right match is important in cultivating the relationship.
Liberty Resources Home Choices, a division of Liberty Resources, Inc., the Center for Independent Living in Philadelphia, PA, can connect you or a loved one with caregivers and other essential services. A caregiver should meet the person’s immediate needs while helping them feel comfortable. Many of our referrals come from word of mouth from other satisfied members, but we’re always screening caregivers beyond current demand to ensure people throughout our community can receive the help they need quickly.
Our caregivers provide non-medical home care services, including:
- Personal care
- Lifestyle support
- Homemaking assistance
- Respite care
Our team strives to make finding a caregiver feel as quick and simple as possible. After connecting with our Enrollment Team, we will conduct a brief telephone interview to better understand your needs. Next, we arrange an in-person consultation. This meeting should include anyone involved in selecting a caregiver and paying for in-home care. In many cases, Liberty Resources Home Choices can assign a caregiver within just 24 hours of the in-home visit.
Scheduling In-Home Care
The caregivers from Liberty Resources Home Choices are accessible when you need them most. Our team is always available to help you create a personalized schedule that works best for you or your loved one. Some of the benefits of working with our organization include:
- 24/7 support access: We work around your schedule, whether it’s on a part-time or full-time basis.
- Fast, flexible scheduling: We know that sometimes unexpected circumstances arise, and your needs may evolve in the future. If adjustments to the current schedule need to be made, we’re only a telephone call away.
- Quality assurance: Our caregivers are carefully selected for competency, compassion, and integrity. All our employees must complete screenings, such as a criminal background check and child abuse clearance, to help ensure the safety of you or your family member.
Our caregivers typically are scheduled on an hourly or as-needed basis to suit a broad range of needs. They are trained to help you with a variety of activities and enable you to maintain your daily routine in your home surrounded by our pets and personal belongings.
