Time

Understanding the different types of services available for home care can be confusing to say the least. The following list is designed to clear up some of the confusion.
Hourly: Hourly care can be provided by a companion/homemaker, CNA/HHA, LPN or RN. The caregiver can provide care available under their licensure/certification, as well as companion/homemaker services. A minimum of five hours of care is required. RN, LPN and bed and bath visits are also available.
Live-In: 24-hour live-in care can be provided by a companion/homemaker, CNA/HHA, LPN or RN. The caregiver can provide care available under their licensure, as well as companion/homemaker services. A live-in caregiver must be able to have eight hours of uninterrupted sleep, in contract (for clients that need full 24-hour attention, we provide shift-work care).
24-Hour Care: The level of care and service is when a home health professional is awake and ready to attend to a patient's needs 24 hours a day. The level of service usually, with rare exception, applies to home health aide care. Two home health aides, each working a 12-hour shift, provide the care. Provision of this service is via private pay and use of long-term care insurance.
Visits: A visit is when the health professional, aide or nurse, comes into a patient's home or residence and performs certain specific tasks or duties. A visit can last up to an hour, but is defined, time-wise, by the completion of the required duties. When the tasks have been performed and completed, the visit is over. Skilled Nurse Visit Example: remove a dressing on a wound, document the wound, treat the wound, put a new dressing on the wound and to monitor the general health of the patient. Home Health Aide Visit Example: help the patient undress, help patient bathe or give patient sponge bath, help patient get dressed and change bed linens.

CNAs (Certified Nursing Assistants)/HHAs (Home Health Aides): Our CNAs and HHAs have a nursing assistant certificate. A person receiving care from a CNA/HHA should be under the care of a physician and/or supervised by a registered nurse. Nurse's aides assist with bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming, eating, physical transfer, and those normal daily routines the client/patient could perform for himself or herself were he or she physically capable. Nurse's aides can also perform all the services of a companion or homemaker and are available hourly, for shift-work or on a live-in basis.
LPNs (Licensed Practical Nurses): LPNs have practical nurse licenses and are under the supervision of our registered nurse or a physician. An LPN maintains the medical plan of treatment created by the registered nurse and approved by the physician. An LPN can also perform the services of a CNA, homemaker and companion.
RNs (Registered Nurses): RNs are licensed and maintain clinical records for clients receiving nursing care. An RN develops medical plans for treatment and can maintain them or supervise their maintenance. An RN supervises LPN’s and CNAs/HHAs. An RN can manage client medications and is available on an hourly, shift, visit or live-in basis.
Home Care One: Our bonded, insured and certified caregivers are residents of the community in which they serve. These professional caregivers can offer service from five to 24 hours every day and these services are ideal for the senior or disabled person who is unable to attend to the basics of life. Without us, our clients would live diminished and impaired lifestyles or would be confined to a nursing home or live-in facility. Our variety of services consists of personal care, companion services and medical services.
