What types of assistance does GraceFul Care provide?
Let us know what you need! We can make you meals, drive you to appointments, or just take you out for a day of fun! We also provide medication reminders, read and sing with you, do shopping, manage your home and care, and do just about anything a family would do. In short, we act like family, not just hired help. We can also give you and your family the information needed if the time ever comes to look for Assisted Living or Nursing Home facilities. We work hand in hand with Elder Law Attorneys, Care Managers, and family caregivers. We’ll provide up front and honest information to help you make your decisions, and we’ll help you with the transition.
What does GraceFul Care not do?
We are not a maid service, and we can’t do any nursing functions or lifting. The people in our care must be mobile by use of a cane, walker, or wheelchair, and able to get themselves out of bed on their own.
Where do you get your caregivers?
The majority of folks come to us from our friends and their personal referrals. We thus eliminate wasting time weeding out those who do not meet our standards. Our people span the gamut in age and life experience. The average caregiver is a lady over 40, retired from a professional career in Northern Virginia, and is responsible, loving, dependable, and creative.
What areas does GraceFul Care serve?
We currently serve the Northern Virginia and the suburban Maryland area, but our range is expanding. If you need assistance in another state, we recommend that you contact your local Area Agency on Aging.
How are you paid for your services?
Medicare or Medicaid does not pay for our services. Some of the better long-term care insurance policies will cover all or a portion of the services we provide. We bill the client/responsible party from our office twice per month.
