Whether you're recovering from an injury or battling the ailments of aging, getting quality health care is critical to maintaining your quality of life.
For many of us and our parents, that means having access to top notch health care from the comfort of our own home. Especially if we're in need of assistance or supervision but don't require hospitalization.
Since 1980, Best Care--one of the largest family-owned private duty home care companies in South Florida--has been referring caregivers who provide comprehensive, quality health care, to individuals in their own homes. In so doing, Best Care helps enhance a client's dignity and minimize his or her feelings of dependance.
How It Works
Best Care's registry matches clients with an appropriate health care team. Caregivers are carefully screened and work in tandem with a physician in the management of patient care. All caregivers follow the direction of the family and/or client.
Additionally, Best Care's longstanding clients enjoy the direct access to the company's hands-on owners. Since Best Care is family owned and the management team have both legal and nursing degrees, clients can rest assured that they won't be lost in the shuffle and can speak to a knowledgable ownership.
Who can benefit? There are countless reasons for home care. Those who may need home care include: the person recovering from an illness, accident or surgery; the disabled; the new mother and her infant; the elderly who may need assistance with meal preparation, personal care and hygiene, or light housekeeping; someone needing a vision/companion; someone needing intravenous chemotherapy, antibiotic therapy or parental nutrition.
Best Care offers around the clock services at home, in the hospital or the nursing home, including:
- Nurse’s Aide
- Live-In Nurse’s Aides/Companions
- Licensed Practical Nurses
- Registered Nurses (R.N.)
- Hospital/Home Care Coordinator
- Nurse Case Managers (R.N.)
- Critical Care Registered Nurses
- Medical Social Workers
- Specialty nursing for Oncology, Enterostomal Therapy
- Baby Nurses – an extra pair of hands for the new mom and dad with their new baby
But there's even better news. Not only does Best Care provide comfortable and effective at home health care, but it's affordable, too. By accepting assignments on day one rather than waiting for insurance to pay, Best Care enables clients to receive treatment immediately, allowing them to focus on getting better rather than worrying about how to fund their at-home health care. Additionally, Best Care offers a variety of payment plans, from veteran pensions to selected HMOs to worker's compensation, and can bill third parties directly on behalf of their clients.
