When it comes to bringing someone into your home to care for a loved one, safety is the number one concern of all family members. Who are you going to be letting into your home? Are they experienced? Are they qualified?
A home-health agency in the state of Florida is licensed by AHCA (Agency for Health Care Administration), which has strict standards that caregivers have to maintain. The agency undergoes surveys by AHCA. Caregivers have level 2 background checks and are registered with the state as working for a particular agency. The agency is notified if a caregiver is no longer eligible to be a caregiver.
These facts put family members questions at ease because every private-duty caregiver is guaranteed to be reliable. The rules and regulations for them are strict so that you know exactly who is going to your home even before they get there.
