OUR HOME CARE PROVIDERS
Because we care...
We know and understand that you want the best when hiring care for your loved one, so we only hire the best.
Pre-Employment: Before hire all our caregivers undergo a preemployment screening. In addition to this screening, the state of New Hampshire requires all homecare agencies to conduct the following on all caregivers:
- State of New Hampshire Background check
- Elder/child Abuse Registry Check (B.E.A.S)
- TB screening
Although not required of homecare agencies by the State of New Hampshire, Abundant Blessings Homecare also conducts the following:
- Drug testing
- Federal Background Check
- Motor Vehicle Driving Record Check
- References checked.
Fully Protected: For peace of mind for your family, all employees of Abundant Blessings Homecare are employees and are not subcontracted. As such, we provide their Workers Compensation, Liability Insurance, and bonding. In addition we take care of all withholding taxes.
Ongoing Supervision of Care: In addition to regular training, your loved one's caregiver will be trained and oriented to the individual home and client. Because each situation is unique, each caregiver is supervised by a Care Manager who ensures the caregiver understand the unique plan of care. Your caregiver will be introduced to your loved one by one of our Care Managers (we will never send a stranger to a clients home) and will receive ongoing supervision by our Care Managers and R.N. Close contact is maintained between our Care Managers, your family, and your loved one's doctor. Communication is regular and ongoing.
Ongoing Training: Abundant Blessings Homecare offers ongoing training in various forms. These include classes, demonstrations, handouts and more. These are provided to help our caregivers be well rounded and knowledgeable in their field and are offered on an ongoing basis. We also partner with other agencies, service providers, medical equipment suppliers and others to conduct joint trainings, this ensures that you will have continuity of care.
