GLEN ELLYN, Ill., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- 1776 Home Care provides on-demand caregiving to help seniors remain in the comfort of their family home. They provide skilled caregivers to assist with activities of daily living (ADL's). The company has a strong focus on safety and utilizes the latest technology to include family members in the ongoing process of the care of their loved one.
1776 Home Care offers customized senior care on an hourly or live-in basis, including night, weekend, and respite care. Caregivers provide a range of services, individualized to fulfill each senior's specific needs. Services range from companionship, meal prep, and light housekeeping to running errands, medication reminders and set-up, and Alzheimer's and dementia care.
1776's care team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to meet a family's needs. All of the company's caregivers are nurse supervised. They adhere to ongoing training requirements and evaluation, ensuring strong supervision and compliance. 1776 Home Care places caregivers in the home with strict standards, hiring less than five percent of the caregivers that apply. All caregivers engage in an in-depth, multi-stage interview process, which includes compatibility screening, reference checks, competency testing, drug testing, DMV check, federal and local criminal background checks, and license and certification verification.
The company's strong focus on utilizing the latest technology is demonstrated by 1776 Home Care's Family Room. Available on all devices that connect to the internet, the Family Room ensures family members remain connected with the care process and informed of the care proceedings. Through the Family Room, family members can view upcoming schedules, caregiver details, medications, invoices, and even particulars down to the tasks that were completed during each shift. Family members can add to-do items, view the care calendar, and even pay or split a portion of the bill.
"Both Mark Heinz and I co-founded 1776 Home Care based on our own personal family experiences, so it's not just business for us, it's personal," says Nat Truitt, CEO and co-founder of 1776 Home Care. "We are passionate about helping older adults live their lives to the fullest. We have created 1776 Home Care to ensure that the safest, most transparent, highest quality care is available to those that need it."
In addition, the company offers a free home safety assessment to help seniors prevent falls in the home. The Home Safety Assessment provides certified home safety staff that meet the senior's loved ones at the home. Together they go through the home, inside and out, helping to identify potential hazards that lead to costly injuries. Using a proprietary 100 point check-list, backed by research to prevent falls, 1776 Home Care staff provides details on all hazards, along with photos and suggested changes. The completed report can be emailed to all family members.
