When someone you love becomes ill or needs help taking care of themselves, you as the caregiver can expect a wide range of new responsibilities in your life. The process of managing all the different aspects of your loved one's health care can be daunting to say the least. JFK At Home understands that your needs as a caregiver are as unique and important as those of the person you care for. Our services are designed to help you understand and manage the added responsibilities of caring for a loved one while freeing you to enjoy quality time with your family.
Prior to the start of care, one of our registered nurses will conduct an in-home assessment, ensuring the care plan is a perfect fit. Our experts can answer your questions and create a customized plan that will allow your loved one to live well at home — while giving you peace of mind. Whether you're caring for a loved one around the corner, or across the country, we can help make this process easy for you.
Dealing With Stress
In order to care for others, you have to first take care of yourself. Eating right, getting enough exercise and sleep, and taking time for you are all important ways to stay healthy as a caregiver. When the stress becomes too much, our services can help you emotionally refuel. Our skilled professionals can help alleviate the pressure of caregiving by providing guidance and lending an understanding ear. In addition, the services they offer — from full-time or part-time care to home monitoring devices — can provide you with much needed relief.
Making Financial Decisions
In addition to the stresses of caring for a loved one, navigating financial issues can also be complex. JFK At Home's advisors can work with your insurance company or Medicare/Medicaid representatives and assist you with the billing and reimbursement process for home care services so that you can focus on what's most important - the health and well-being of your loved one.
Facing End of Life Issues
When a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, our caregivers understand that the family also needs emotional support. Our palliative care and hospice services are designed to ensure privacy and respect while providing comfort and compassion for both the patient and the family during this difficult time.
