The start of a new year often brings a time of reflection and resolution. For families considering in-home care for their elderly parents, the start of the year can be the perfect opportunity to embark on this seemingly daunting but necessary journey. At Moore Care in Baton Rouge, we understand the significance of this decision and are here to guide you through the steps involved in initiating in-home care services

Assessing Your Parent’s Needs

The first step towards quality in-home care begins with a comprehensive assessment of your elderly parent’s requirements. You know your parents the best and the specific, daily needs that are required. Finding a provider that will seamlessly integrate to meet those needs is crucial to the long-term success of in-home care.

Our team at Moore Care conducts thorough assessments, considering their medical needs, daily living activities, mobility, and emotional well-being. This assessment serves as the foundation for personalized care planning.

Planning Tailored In-Home Care

After assessing your parent’s needs, we collaborate with you and your family to create a customized care plan. This plan outlines the specific services and support your parents require, considering their preferences and maintaining their independence as much as possible.

Aging in place is the goal for all involved and our team is committed to doing our best to ensure that happens. We prioritize open communication and a care plan is adaptable to evolving needs.

Implementing Care Services

With the care plan established, our dedicated team at Moore Care works diligently to implement the in-home care services. We match skilled caregivers to your parent’s needs and preferences, ensuring compassionate and competent assistance. Whether it’s companionship, medical care, or help with daily tasks, our caregivers are committed to providing exceptional support.

Whether you are looking for assistance for 4 or 24 hours a day, we can meet your needs. Our service offerings are as intensive or as hands-off as necessary. Our professional caregivers can help with everyday tasks, provide comfort and assistance, and be a friend and companion to your loved one.

Regular Reviews and Adjustments

Initiating in-home care is not a one-time process; it’s an ongoing journey. At Moore Care, we conduct regular reviews of the care plan and services provided.

These reviews enable us to assess the effectiveness of the care, address any emerging needs, and make necessary adjustments to ensure the highest quality of care for your elderly parent.

The personal touch and empowering the client’s independence is what sets Moore Care apart from other in-home care providers. Read a recent testimonial from a family member of a beloved Moore Client client:

“Moore Care is the third caregiver service our family has employed to care for our Dad. Moore Care is by far the best service our family has employed. We regret that we did not know about this service when our family first needed caregivers for Daddy. He is 90 years old and is now bedridden. He is with Hospice Care and in the care of the wonderful staff of Moore Care. From the first call made to Moore Care it was obvious that we were dealing with a business that was far and above any other.

The professionalism and experience of all the Moore Care staff is outstanding. We were told that it could take up to two weeks to assemble the ‘right’ group of caregivers to care for Daddy. Personalities, comfort levels, and skill levels needed to be matched with Daddy and with our family. In less than two weeks, the ” right” match was in place. The staff of Moore Care is professional, kind, caring, knowledgeable, and genuine. They each relate to Daddy in a kind and caring way and are responsive to his needs. Each of the caregivers has a story to tell about their history with caring for people both in their own families and with other families. They are respectful and conscientious.

During the recent flood in the Baton Rouge area, the management team of Moore Care was in contact with each member of their staff. As soon as humanly possible, the caregivers were available to care for Daddy. Those that were not flooded covered shifts for those that were. The coordination and caring between the staff, Management and our family was incredible.

Without a doubt, our family would recommend Moore Care to care for your loved ones. We appreciate their dedication and are thankful everyday that we found this service.”
