Each year tens of thousands of people around the world choose at home healthcare, such as that provided by PrivaCare, for a number of reasons including:
- Home care is the most cost-effective health care delivery offered as there are no room and board costs compared to nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and other institutional care settings.
- Home care promotes healing, as studies have shown that patients recover faster in the comfort of their home.
- Home care offers individualized services that are tailored to the client’s health care needs and finances.
- Home care reinforces and supplements care from the client’s family and friends.
PrivaCare’s staff has great expertise in assessing client needs and developing care plans, at no cost to the client. The professional staff at a PrivaCare can help clients navigate through the web of health care resources and effectively communicate your needs and goals to physicians, hospital staff, and nursing home staff. Our staff can also assist clients and their family with any emotional barriers and concerns about accepting home care services.
After deciding that home care is the right option, consumers weigh their options of hiring a home care agency or contract directly with a home health aide or nurse. However, consumers should be aware of the following benefits of working with a home care agency such as PrivaCare versus the risks of a direct hire:
Peace of Mind: Unless the consumer does a criminal background check at their own expense, the consumer does not really know who is providing care in their home. PrivaCare conducts thorough criminal background checks, skill & training checks, and education checks that provide more comprehensive data than available to the public prior to any home care agency employee stepping foot into a client’s home.
Ongoing Training and Supervision: PrivaCare and its highly skilled staff have the experience, knowledge, training, resources, and licensure to ensure that our employees are thoroughly trained in all services performed, including safe infection control, falls prevention, emergency preparation, and personal care tasks.
Qualified Hiring: PrivaCare staff members are carefully selected and screened. They undergo background checks with law enforcement institutions and are medically screened for communicable diseases. Our nurses often have many years of experience in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) settings. In addition, our staff members take part in our exclusive multi-phase training program. Our training program includes an overview of what services our care providers can perform, how to safeguard clients from potential safety hazards as well as how to communicate with the patient and family members.
Convenience and affordability: Privacare takes the hassle and time out of visiting a hospital by offering affordable hospital-quality care at home. Need a quick blood test or lab exam? Recovering from a procedure that requires extra at home attention? Let PrivaCare bring all this to your doorstep with our affordable customized packages.
Partnerships you can trust: PrivaCare works with leading hospitals, experienced doctors, nurses, diagnostic centers and others to improve health outcomes for patients. We are the official home healthcare provider for Doctors Hospital Lahore & Doctors Hospital Pathology Lab and are exploring new opportunities on a regular basis to expand our network.
