We give great customer service to our clients, prospective clients, employees, and applicants. All our customers in one sense or another.
Great customer service includes courtesy, friendliness, respectful treatment, accurate information, and prompt problem resolution.
We value honesty with clients, prospective clients, home care aides, applicants, and each other.
Being honest includes communicating accurately and the avoidance of giving misleading expectations. It also means acknowledging our mistakes no matter how we learn about them while also taking immediate corrective action.
Deliberate Matching Between Clients & Aides
We work hard to find the right home care aides for each client by taking into account both the aide’s needs and the client’s. We carefully describe each new assignment and probe for possible conflicts or incompatibilities, considering factors like location, temperaments, requisite technical skills, and comfort around pets.
Keeping our promises means doing what we say we will do. We strive to only make guarantees that we can realistically fulfill. We do not over-promise or create unrealistic expectations.
Want to meet your home care worker before committing to services? We are happy to arrange for clients and family members to meet their new caregivers. We arrange the meeting at our expense before you commit to receiving in-home care services. If the match does not look right, we will work hard to find an alternative.
Individualized Care Plans
U-Turn Health prepares an individualized care plan for each client. This is to inform our caregivers of their assigned tasks and any special circumstances. Each care plan covers all duties the aide is to perform, as well as any safety precautions that need to be remembered. We will discuss your needs with you at length before creating the best care plan for you.
First Day Introductions
Whenever we start providing home care services to a new client, a U-Turn Health care manager meets our caregiver at the home on the very first day to be sure that things get off to a good start. An initial introduction helps reduce apprehensions a client may have about meeting his or her aide for the first time.
The U-Turn Health Client Binder
Good communication is at the heart of successful experience with in-home care. We leave a binder in each client’s home with a journal where the client, family members, and the home care aide communicate with each other in writing. This is especially useful when a concerned family member needs to exchange messages with their caregiver about special instructions, progress reports, etc.
