Bee’s Knees Award
Starting in February 2018, one of our Managed Care Companions will be awarded the Bee’s Knees Award. This is a slang term used in the past to describe the awesomeness of a person. Home Care Managers will give this award to individuals who display a positive attitude, quality of care, willingness to pick up shifts, teamwork, attendance, problem-solving and professionalism.
The first recipient of this award is Pam! Pam brings a great attitude & smile with her to client visits. She regularly picks up extra shifts & helps out in variety of ways. Pam has been a part of the NAC pilot since it began last summer. She is always good at problem solving. Pam was awarded a certificate, lapel pin, flowers and four hours of vacation. Congrats, Pam!
Embrace is Excited to Announce our Innovative Pilot Program… Neighborhood Assisted Care (NAC)
Clients are able to remain in the comfort of their own home with 24-hour support from a group of “mobile” caregivers dedicated to an assigned “Neighborhood”. Depending on level of care, each client in the “Neighborhood” receives 4 – 8 short visits per day. NAC was started to meet client needs in the most economical way possible. Over the years, we have had many clients who did not need nor want a minimum 2-hour shift as provided in traditional hourly care (which we do still provide for those clients who need/prefer that service). We also understand that 24/7 in home care with traditional hourly caregivers is often cost prohibitive. NAC provides 24/7 care at a more affordable rate because the cost of care is spread over more than one client in the “Neighborhood”. We also recognize that the vast majority of seniors would prefer to stay in their owns; NAC gives them that option. The idea of doing some form of “Neighborhood” care, is something Embrace has been considering for several years. While attending a conference, Embrace’s owner learned of an out of state agency who has been successful in implementing this type of care. That was the encouragement needed to put Embrace’s pilot into motion! The Embrace Team has worked collaboratively for several months to work out the details of the pilot. The first pilot “Neighborhood” began receiving care in the Summer of 2017. Call Embrace today to learn more!
