Family Caregivers

Caring for a family member can be demanding and stressful, but entrusting that care to another can be difficult as well. We understand what you’re going through. We’ve helped many family members in your position; in fact, it is often a family member who arranges for Ready Hands to provide residential home care for an older parent or relative with functional limitations. We try to be especially attentive to the particular concerns and needs of family caregivers when we provide home care in Fairfax, VA, Manassas, and the surrounding counties.

Communication

A Ready Hands manager or Registered Nurse Supervisor is accessible directly by phone 24 hours a day for any problems.  After hours, you won’t have to leave a message with an answering service.  We keep in touch often to be sure our services are meeting your expectations.

We understand that family caregivers want to be sure their loved one is faring well in their absence, and to give guidance and feedback to home care personnel. To help facilitate this kind of communication, our caregivers for seniors keep progress folders in every home. These folders ensure that the lines of communication remain open and that the information you need is recorded and available whenever you want it.

Flexibility

Needs change from time to time. We do everything we can to accommodate changes in scheduled times of service. We are also happy to modify the types of assistance we provide to your loved one, whenever you require it. We are also flexible when it comes to the caregiving setting. Many of our clients retain their Home Care Aides during temporary stays in rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes and hospitals throughout our area.  We’re happy to offer home care in Fairfax, VA, Manassas, the counties of Fairfax, Arlington, Prince William, and the surrounding areas.

Security

With Ready Hands, you have the confidence that your loved one will be cared for safely, compassionately and reliably.  Besides being carefully screened, each of our caregivers for seniors is handpicked to have the personal qualities necessary for relating well to seniors and individuals with functional limitations.

Time

The demands of residential home care for family members can impinge upon all aspects of one’s life, including job responsibilities and inter-personal relationships. Ready Hands makes it possible for family caregivers to give themselves the precious gift of time–time for work, for a well-deserved break or for other personal priorities.
