3.  SUPERVISION OF STAFF AND PROGRESS REPORTING

Employees are supervised by an L and M Family Caregiver with over 15 years of in home care and service.
Visits to the client’s home are made by our L and M Family Caregivers Supervisor, who will evaluate the employee’s performance and will perform an assessment of the client.  The plan of care can be adjusted at this time if necessary.  Client progress reports are produced monthly by L& M Family Caregivers and are sent to family members/guardians/POA’s or as directed by the client.

4.  COST OF SERVICES

L& M Family Caregivers recently completed a survey of local Home Care Agency fees.  When comparing service rates, we found that we are competitive with other agencies in the area. However, the survey also revealed that we pay our patient care staff extremely well. We acknowledge that our employees are the heart of our business and we hire and retain only the best!
