“This was the most difficult and sad visit that I have had since I started traveling down to Florida. There are no words to express the sadness of watching our parents slip away right before your eyes. You certainly need to double up on your patience pills as it is an extremely challenging time. I find solace in the fact that they have both lived incredible lives both individually and as a couple. Only God knows when their time on Earth will be over, but I pray that it is sooner than later for dad, as he certainly never wanted to live this way. A very special thanks to Anita and all of the aides for their incredible assistance, support and love. The deal with very difficult situations daily and frankly, I don't know how they get through some of the days. We are fortunate that the parent have the resources necessary to continue living in their own familiar home rather than unsavory alternatives.”

“Dear Anita, Thank you for sitting down with my parents about mom's medical management. It meant the world to us that you took so much time from your busy day. Of course we also appreciate that Bob gave you the OK! Thanks to both of you!”

“Anita Robberson found time in her busy schedule to stop by twice a week to not only check on me, but to spend time and discuss the ongoing care of my ward on Sanibel. This alone went a long way toward diminishing concerns for the ongoing care of my ward, and allowed me the opportunity to discuss and be a part of the patient care decision and brought me great peace of mind.”

6 Tips for Making the Right Choice

How to select the right Private Duty Home Health Agency

Tip #1 Your Choices
Agencies, Registries and Companion Services, Oh My! Understanding which type of home care provider fits your needs is critical to hiring the RIGHT provider.

Tip #2 Fee Structure
As you begin researching a home care provider, you’ll want to take your time to understand the fee structure of each agency, registry or companion service you are considering hiring.

Tip #3 Screening
Whether you are looking to hire a caretaker for yourself or a member of your family, it is important to conduct a background check on those individuals who will be providing the care.

Tip #4 Test the Metal
Ask about after hours and weekend response – then test it! Is there anything more annoying than needing to talk with someone and not being able to get a hold of them? We think not!

Tip #5 Trust Your Intuition
At this point, you have a good understanding as to what type of providers there are, have calculated the costs, understand their screening processes, etc. Now it is time to sit back and trust your intuition.

Tip #6 When in Doubt, Call Us
