What is non-medical home care?

The non-medical home care is a service that helps assist those in need with activities of daily living (ADLs) so that they can continue living their life in comfort of their own home. Home care is a great alternative to assisted living or nursing home because it allows seniors to maintain their independence. By helping them meet their daily needs, non-medical home care brings peace of mind to the client and their family.​ When all of the daily tasks are completed by a professional, it allows family and friends to spend quality time with their loved ones. It also prevent seniors from having to move to senior housing earlier than necessary, since their daily needs are being met at home.

How does Caring Grace Home Care Agency assign the caregivers?

We do Free in-home consultation, and provide a written “Service Plan” for each client based on an assessment of their needs. The service plan is developed in cooperation and agreement with the client / client’s representative. Based on the individual’s needs, we assign the best fit caregiver after matching the needs to the caregiver skills. If the client wants to choose someone else, we try our best to accommodate their needs.

 

Will the client receive care from the same caregiver?

We aim to build a long-term relationship with our clients. Therefore, we assign the same caregiver to the client in order for the client to get to know their caregiver and bond with them. Sometimes, the client needs a caregiver for many hours a day, or in different times during the day; in those cases, we might assign more than one caregiver in order to satisfy the client needs in the best way possible. We also perform regular assessments by management to monitor client’s satisfaction.

 

Are Caring Grace Home Care Agency caregivers insured and bonded?

All our caregivers are trained, competent, and licensed professionals. They are insured and bonded. All of our caregivers are employees of Caring Grace, and not sub-contracted or hired through an independent contractor. We perform stringent background screening for all our employees to guarantee excellent services for our clients.

 

Can the client discontinue the services?

Yes. We provide short-term and long-term services. In fact, we provide services in hourly basis based on the individual’s needs.

Yes. One of our personal care services is taking your loved ones to and from their doctor appointments.

 

What will it cost me?

If you contact us today, we can help you set up an in-home consultation at no cost to you. We can assess which services would work best for you and set up an affordable rate accordingly. Since every client has different levels of needs, the cost may vary. After meeting with you, we provide a written "service plan" which is created with you and based off of your needs.

 

Are you Medicaid waiver approved?

Yes, we are Medicaid waiver approved.

 

Are we locked into a long-term service contract?

Kemah , CNA


Kemah has a great passion for helping others and providing care. She enjoys helping her clients perform everyday tasks that they are no longer be able to perform like laundry or preparing meals ... whatever is needed. She recalls using the computer for online shopping by helping an elderly lady that was no longer able to go on shopping trip.

 




Marvoi , CNA


Marvoi loves helping others, especially children and the elderly. She recalls recently helping an 104 year old elderly gentleman that didn’t want to eat or bathe. Things changed for the positive when she entered the household, providing a positive, compassionate and friendly level of care, convincing her client to eat and bathe. She felt “lifted” when she was able to help someone.

 




Carinsy, HHA


Carinsky has always liked helping others, especially seniors and the disabled. Sometimes her clients live alone. Sometimes they live with a child or a spouse. She begins her visit by tending to whatever is in the plan for them (meals, housekeeping, wash). The remainder of her visit is spent playing games or whatever they enjoy.

 




Nereida, CNA


Nereida enjoys caring for people, learning all about their lives and making them feel loved. She wants them to feel comfortable and happy. They'll sometimes perform daily activities together, often things they can no longer do for themselves like cooking or light housekeeping. She feels two of the most important things in providing homecare are patience and understanding.

 




Taylor, HHA


A family member of Taylor's with disabilities exposed her to caregiving at an early age. She knew at that time she wanted to make a lifetime commitment to helping others in need. Over the years she has worked with a multitude of clients including children, seniors and others with medical and emotional problems. She believes it's a beautiful thing when she sees how appreciative those are that receive her care.

 




Brooke, RMA


Brooke loves people and loves being able to help people. She's always ready to brighten their day anyway she can, often putting a smile on their face. She likes to think of herself as an extended part of their family rather than just a caregiver. She enjoys helping make her clients lives better any way she can. Whether it be performing daily activities, an occasional shopping trip, a visit to the park or just a nice chat.

 

 

We're always looking for individuals that share our passion for bringing a true sense of dignity to home care. You can become a member of our family. Join us now.

 

 

 

 

Testimonials

 

At Caring Grace Home Care Agency we appreciate feedback from our clients. Please contact us and share your experiences.

 

 

"She was wonderful to my father Charles."

 

My father was a great man. He was kind and sweet. He was hospitalized due to the flu and the doctor refused to discharge him unless he would be living with someone instead of by himself. He moved into our house. My husband and I took care of him. There were times he refused to accept our help & he also became weaker. Therefore, we hired Caring Grace. Marvoi was the assigned caregiver. She was wonderful to my father Charles. She was able to do things for him that he wouldn’t allow others to do. Thank you Caring Grace!

"Caring Grace provided transportation for my father ..."

 

My father had congestive heart failure. He couldn’t drive his own car or perform the tasks he was used to performing; he needed assistance. Caring Grace provided transportation for my father for his medical appointments, errands, and to socially meet with his friends. Also, because of the assistance provided by Caring Grace, my father was able to maintain his quality of life during his last six months.

"I’m grateful that Caring Grace was such a help."

 

I loved having the time to spend with my grandfather. I was able to get closer to him. During the last couple weeks of his life, I slept in his room with him. Those days were priceless! It was nice having him around. I was able to talk to him and help him. My grandfather and I wouldn’t have had that experience if he was not at home with us. I’m grateful that Caring Grace was such a help.

 

Eric

 

 

"Thank you so much for the flowers you sent to me ..."

 

Thank you so much for the flowers you sent to me at the passings of my husband, brother, and friend. How very kind of you. Your employee, Rose Brewer, was a wonderful companion and caretaker to Pat, my husband, when he was alive. She did a great job.
