Our Community of Home Caregivers, Senior Helpers, & Home Health Care Aides
A Better Living Home Care has already screened thousands of professional personal caregivers, senior helpers, and home health care aides. We’ve selected the best qualified and most experienced to join our community of caregivers. They include: certified nurse’s aides, certified home health care aides, personal care attendants, companion homemakers and senior helpers who are ready, willing and able to help at home.
We are dedicated to expertly matching our clients’ needs and preferences with the right home caregiver and will arrange a temporary or permanent replacement if one is needed. We back up our dedication with our Compatibility Guarantee. Providing our friends and neighbors with an alternative to nursing home care, our community of in-home care aides and senior home caregivers are reliable, qualified, compassionate and ready to help at home when you need them.
To ensure we can provide highly compatible caregivers, senior helpers, & home health care aides for our discerning clients and their families, we maintain an extensive roster of professional in-home caregivers with the range skills and personalities sure to meet their needs.
- Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) – trained in acute, and chronic care situations, and certified by the state of California. CNA’s provide the hands on personal care to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, home health care agencies, and home care agency clients. CNA’s have the skills to manage challenging care situations.
- Certified Home Health Aides (CHHA) – trained to care for acute, and chronic care patients in the home and certified by the state of California. CHHA’s provide the hands on personal care to patients of home health care agencies, and home care agency clients. Like CNA’s they have the skills to provide higher levels of care.
- Personal Care Aides & Attendants – Many have been CNA’s or CHHA’s and chose to focus on one-on-one care in the home, rather than institutional care settings. Others have gained their skills through prior work experience and training. Ideal when a balanced approach between moderate levels of care, housekeeping & household assistance, companionship, and safety monitoring is needed.
- Companion Homemakers – Also called “Senior Helpers” they offer companionship, housekeeping & household assistance, safety monitoring, and less challenging levels of care.
