The Homecare By Design teams, made up of nurses, those with social work backgrounds and highly trained and experienced managers as well as over 60 in home care providers, are passionate.
When associates are considered for hire by Homecare By Design, besides having a high degree of proven integrity, they must be passionate about seniors and the disabled. Passion is the driving force behind this agency. It was built not overnight, but by year after year of dedicated care to seniors. Born out of a desire to meet the unique and ever changing needs of the senior, Homecare By Design focuses intentionally and purposefully on bettering the lives of our beloved clients and their family.
Taking best practices from years of experience, the Homecare By Design team is an industry leader setting high standards for care and customer service. And, it doesn't stop there. Homecare By Design continues to stay on the cutting edge of programs, training and technologies to make life better for those we serve while maintaining our traditional tried and true root practices that have earned the trust and respect of those we have or are currently serving.
This dedication and commitment is why we continually serve repeat customers, their family and friends. Because we care...and it shows!
If we are to have happy clients, we must have a happy staff. After our staff have undergone extensive screening, our proprietary integrity exam, and have met with multiple managers for quality assurance, they undergo agency training that focuses on customer service, care services and on-going programming to develop additional skills in their work and in their personal lives.
Homecare By Design is continually growing and we do so by taking excellent care of our staff as well as our clients. We treat our associates with the same TLC we do our clients and their family. Our staff is the backbone of our agency and we know it!
We dedicate special time and attention to enhancing their lives so they can feel confident, competent and joyful in their personal as well as their work life. The agency mission is, "Bettering the world, one life at a time" and that includes not only our clients, but our beloved staff as well!
Affordable for most budgets by self/private pay, long term care insurance or veteran’s benefits, as applicable. We bill bi-weekly, so other than the initial deposit that is returned for unused services, you pay only after you have received the services. We also have a convenient bank pay system for extra ease, if preferred. All associates are paid through the agency so you never have to worry about tracking their time. Our "telephony" system allows us to track each visit to the home with the use of the telephone, so we can see exactly when our caregiver arrived and when they left. We also take care of all insurances, so should an accident happen with one of our staff, they are covered. In addition, we take care of all taxes, social security payments and Medicare payments for our staff. It's easy, safe, and hassle-free for our clients!
Traci Goudy, RN and owner/operator of Homecare By Design, has 20-years of direct day-to-day experience in senior care and senior services. This is extremely important in the care of your loved one. Having someone with a rich history in caring specifically for seniors, in many ways, becomes crucial in the home care setting. The Homecare By Design management team, who personally meets and makes recommendations for each of our seniors care, based on the senior’s need and preferences, is made up of nurses and those with social work backgrounds.
This becomes evident in the delivery of our expert care. Staffing well trained and supervised caregivers with the right clients requires experience in working with the elderly and/or disabled, for the best care. This affordable, yet expert delivery of services enhances the overall in home care experience for the senior, their family and other providers who may be working with the senior. It is a team effort!
You simply cannot replace practical experience in working with seniors. They have unique needs, communication styles, are facing potential difficulties as they age, have lost friends and loved ones to death; that can lead to depression and other problems and they grew up in a completely different generation! An experienced, loving agency that is passionate about their clients and have the expertise to back it up provides you and your loved one with the needed peace of mind and hope for the future you deserve.
Caring staff are specially matched to meet the client’s needs, expectations, personality and preferences! We believe the relationship between the caregiver and the client is vital to a healthy on-going relationship, and to the success of our company. We work especially hard to find the best possible associates for each one of our unique clients. This attitude has won us the favor of many seniors who otherwise may have rejected the idea of someone coming into their home or residence.
