Infinity Care’s Home Care Services

Caregiver Agency - Servicing The Piedmont Triad Area

Taking on the responsibility of caring for a loved one is rewarding; however, it is also a lot of time and commitment to take on. At Infinity Care, we understand that it can be challenging to add the responsibility of a whole other person into your already hectic schedule between work and family commitments. We also know that our clients are part of your beloved family, so we treat them as if they were a member of our own family and with the same respect as you would in your home. Our team of caregivers provide more than just respect, they provide your loved one with companionship, comfort, and safety. We tailor our home care services to each individual client, and we work with you directly to develop a personalized home care plan for you or your family member.  

How Caregiver Agencies Can Help

To ensure we can help our clients safely stay in the comfort of their home, we offer a variety of home care services that you can select from to customize the professional home care services you or your loved one receive. Our home care aides are trained to do the following:

  • In-Home Care Services - light housekeeping, laundry assistance, changing bed linens, meal preparation, transfer to/from bed or chair, etc.
  • Personal Care Services - bathing, grooming, selecting clothes, medication reminders, general hygiene assistance, using the toilet, etc.
  • Other Service Options - Companion Care, Private-Duty Care, Respite Care, Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP-C), Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults (CAP-DA), etc.

It is important to note that personal care services are commonly referred to as activities of daily living (ADLs) in the medical care community. If you have any questions regarding the types of services we offer, please feel free to call us at (336) 727-3734 and we will gladly answer them for you.

When To Seek a Caregivers Agency

Knowing when it is time to bring in the help of home care providers can be difficult for both you and your loved one. Luckily, there are some common trigger events that can occur, signaling the need for assistance may be required sooner rather than later. Some events will be more noticeable than others. Some examples of trigger events to be on the lookout for include:

  • A fall that affects their ability to move
  • Their driver’s license has been taken away
  • The freedom to get around is reduced
  • A hospital stay/procedure requiring temporary care while recovering and healing
  • Frequently forgets where they are or how to get home
  • Their personal appearance and grooming habits have deteriorated
  • Forgets to take medication or eat their meals
  • Decline in upkeep of their living space
  • Difficulty remembering to pay bills on time
  • Sudden, rapid weight loss

For some, the realization that additional assistance is needed can be hard to grasp. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unsure how to address your loved ones' need for home or personal care assistance, we would be more than happy to provide you with some advice and tips for bringing it up in conversation without offending or upsetting them. It is never easy to tell someone they may require supervision or other home care services. At the end of the day, research has shown that seniors live longer and are happier when they are able to remain in their home, so we want to help you to keep your family member or friend where they belong, which is at home.

Benefits of Working With An Agency For Caregiving

When it comes to receiving in-home care services, you have a couple of options. You can choose to find an independent caregiver that you hire on your own or you can find a full service home care agency, such as Infinity Care. As with most options, each has its pros and cons. Some benefits of working with a caregiver agency over an independent caregiver include:

  1. High-Quality Care
    Not that you cannot find a high-quality caregiver outside of a home care company; however, you will find that a home care aide provided by care agencies are professionally trained and licensed in providing home care services, allowing them to provide a wide range of services.
  2. Affordable
    Since Medicare typically does not cover the cost of home care services (whether they are necessary or not) we keep our prices affordable so families from all backgrounds can receive the high-quality care that they need for their loved ones.
  3. Peace of Mind
    You will be able to rest easy knowing your beloved family member is in compassionate, caring hands with any member of our staff. A rigorous screening and background check is completed on all caregivers before they are officially hired.
  4. Insured and Bonded
    To give you even greater peace of mind, all caregiver agencies are required to be licensed, insured, and bonded in order to operate. If there is an accident or incident in your home while a caregiver is on the job, our insurance will likely cover damages or expenses incurred. Please note that independent caregivers cannot be bonded (which protects clients from caregiver theft and also compensates the client in cases of property loss caused by the caregiver).
  5. Always Available
    When you hire an independent caregiver, there is no guarantee someone will be able to cover for them if they are sick, busy with a family emergency, or unexpectedly relocate. When working with a home care agency, there are more caregivers on hand, so they will be able to provide a replacement for you immediately.

Care Where You Need It Most

The best benefit of them all when it comes to home care is we are able to provide it wherever it is needed, thus allowing you or your loved one to remain in the comfort of their familiar surroundings and environment. By having the ability to stay in their home, your loved one will be able to continue living a happy, healthy life. To get more information, details, and have any questions or concerns addressed, contact us to request a free consultation.

We care for your family members as though they are our own.
