Why Choose ElderCare at Home
As the founders of two of the most well respected nurse registries in the State of Florida, the owners of ElderCare at Home, a licensed nurse registry, have spent the last 28 years referring qualified, independent caregivers, who have provided exceptional private duty home care services, to thousands of patients and families.
Year after year we have proven to be the most cost effective, professional, and safe way for families to keep their loved one at home, by successfully matching clients to thoroughly screened, independent caregivers who can provide them with “Better Care, at a Better Price with Better Value” than anyone else.
ElderCare at Home has always gone above and beyond the minimum standards as required by The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the State governing body that licenses and supervises Florida nurse registries and home health agencies.
Although as a licensed nurse registry we cannot train the independent contractors we refer to our clients, at the time of registration, we can and we do ask them to provide us with evidence of their experience and/or proof of specialized training from the Alzheimer’s Care Resource Center, Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, or other dementia specific organization.
This helps to ensure the independent contractors we refer to you have demonstrated their ability to meet the unique, and often complex care needs of the person with Alzheimer’s disease.
