Finding a reliable and compassionate caregiver does not have to be challanging. Hourly caregiving is an option instead of assisted living placement. At Accountable Home Care, we understand the ability to maintain independence at home is priceless. The decision to hire a caregiver for a family member can be challanging. As a licensed nurse registry in Florida, the caregivers we refer to family have level 2 background checks completed, professional liability insurance and have meet the standards in health and current certifications. Hiring a companion for an aging parent allows socialization, transportation and freedom to continue an active life – touching people’s personal lives and overall healthy lifestyle.
Assistance from Compassionate Caregivers
Before hiring a Homemaker or Companion, it is important to know that individuals referred by Accountable Home Care cannot perform any hands-on personal care health care services such as a Home Health Aide (HHA). Homemakers and companions cannot assist patients with self-administration of medication. They can only verbally remind the client to take their medication.

Paying for In-Home Care
Most families are not prepared when it comes to coordinating a caregiver in the home. Often times families do not know if services are covered by Medicare or secondary insurance. Private duty also known as custodial care is considered non medical home..
Private Duty Care versus Medicare Home Health Care Services
Private duty care is different from home health care. They vary in the level of care. Also the private duty care provides the long term-care while home health care provides the short term care.
