Home Care & Staffing

Helping people stay at home & healthier longer

A home health aide can act as a campanion to a
lonely senior.

"Home care can also delay the need
for assisted living or nursing home
care, saving money in the long run and
allowing your parent to age in their own
home," Zorbo says. "But home care
isn't just for the elderly. It can benefit
Arcadia's clients range from new
mothers recovering from childbirth to
those recovering from elective surgeries
who just need help for a few days until
they get back on their feet.
Professionals from Arcadia meet
patients at their homes to check for
safety risks and to discuss options —
creating a plan of care that addresses
the specific needs of the individual.
The state of Michigan currently has
no licensure requirements for home
care providers, so you will want to look
for an agency that is accredited by an
organization such as the Accreditation
Commission for Health Care. Arcadia has
held that accreditation since 2010.
"We have rigorous hiring standards for
our employees," Zorbo says. All Arcadia
employees are high school graduates
with one year of home care experience
who must pass a qualifying exam and
three levels of background checks.
Employees undergo monthly training
to make sure their skills are up to date
and are regularly observed in the home
by a supervisor.
Whether you want to get away for
a weekend without worrying if your
aging parent is taking his medicine
and eating properly, wish there was
someone who could keep your mom
company while you work or just
want a few hours of help each week
in preparing meals and doing light
housekeeping, home care might be an
affordable answer for you. ❑
