Home Care FAQs

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

The symptoms associated with later-stage Alzheimer’s look different for everyone. For some, there is only a need for supervision and management of ADLs and IADLs; for others, there are more complex medical needs. Deciding whether your mother needs home care assistance, home health assistance, or both is easiest to accomplish by requesting and participating in Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County’s complimentary, no-obligation consultation.

Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County’s professional caregivers can provide your daughter with valuable respite time so she can take a break and attend to her own needs. Sometimes, our clients also find that they are more comfortable having a professional assist with some ADLs and IADLs rather than always asking a loved one for help. Since our services are flexible, you can hire us to assist only with the tasks you need help with, part-time or intermittently, to subsidize and support the care you are receiving from your daughter.

While Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County strives to provide consistent care to every client, having one consistent professional caregiver depends greatly on the individual’s needs and scheduling preferences.  Sometimes, even if you have one consistent caregiver, it becomes necessary to schedule backup care because that individual is sick or away on vacation. Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County will always manage this task to ensure you have consistent and reliable care when you need it most. Our care managers also remain on call 24 hours a day and seven days a week to manage emergency schedule changes or needs.

Our professional caregivers do not hold medical licenses or certifications, so they cannot administer medications. This rule is in place for your safety. Professional caregivers provide clients with medication reminders, often offering the perfect balance between independence and safety. If you do find that you require assistance specifically with medication administration, Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County can assist you with home health services.

No, Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County offers precisely the opposite. Our professional caregivers empower and encourage clients to maintain their highest possible level of independence but offer assistance or supervision whenever tasks are difficult or unsafe to complete independently due to the aging process, an injury or an illness. Our care plans can always be modified to add or remove services if you choose, and we will always respect your input and goals when providing professional caregiver services.

Salus Homecare of Los Angeles County never requires clients to sign a contract, and we do not assess additional fees for service changes or if a client no longer wishes to receive our services.

Salus Homecare is one of a select few agencies that the Joint Commission accredits. This governing body is respected in the healthcare and home care industries and sets rigorous standards for safety, quality of care, documentation and continuity of care. To maintain our accreditation, we voluntarily focus on these high standards and expect more from our employees. This offers many of our clients peace of mind and is a deciding factor when initiating services with us. As a result of this accreditation, many healthcare professionals also choose to refer clients to us first.

Salus Homecare of Orange County assigns each client to a care manager. If you ever feel it necessary to change the caregiver services you are receiving, please contact that individual. They remain on call 24 hours a day and seven days a week and can help by taking care of your concerns or assigning you a new professional caregiver.

Signing up for our services is as simple as making a phone call to our office. We will then schedule a free, no obligation consultation at a time that is convenient for you and assess your needs so we can make appropriate service recommendations.

Once you have completed the in-home consultation, services can typically begin as soon as needed.

What Our Patients & Their Families Say About Us

“I enjoy the support my in home caregiver provides with daily tasks. I’m treated with dignity and respect, and I feel safe and comfortable.”

If a higher level of care is ever necessary, our home health services help you better manage medical needs, or our Los Angeles hospice team offers holistic support for life-limiting health conditions.
