I understand there is a new Illinois law affecting home care agencies. Is Partners in Healthcare covered?
Absolutely! The new law, effective September 2008, ensures that elders and their families enjoy the high quality home care they deserve. The initiative strengthens the overall accountability of home care agencies, promotes a better trained workforce to provide in-home services, and requires licensure standards that address quality throughout the industry.
What can you tell me about the caregivers you employ?
We do extensive screening of each employee by verifying references, licenses, certificates and criminal background checks. Partners in Healthcare excels at finding natural, successful matches between caregivers and clients. We are also more than happy to make a change if you are not comfortable with your assigned RN, CNA or Companion.
What geographical areas do you cover?
We will service any home, nursing facility or hospital in Cook and Lake County, Illinois.
Do you belong to any professional organizations?
We are members of the National Private Duty Association, Continuity of Care Organization, and Senior Coalition of Lake County.
