I highly recommend M&Y as a home care provider.
Hello, My name is Patty Large, I transferred from Pediatrics to Home Health Care in 2015. I have been working at M&Y Care since 2015 and the experience has been so rewarding. It has been fantastic having a fantastic team to work for. My supervisor Yana is very helpful when have questions regarding my work and is just an amazing person over all. The whole staff is so beautiful.
I want to take the time out to give a big thumbs up to the team at M&Y Home Care LLC. My mom was discharged from the hospital in May 2019, and I needed someone with her 24 hrs to help her in her recovery at home as I did not want to put her into a rehabilitation center or assisted living facility. I did some research and I found M&Y Home Care, I explained my situation and they immediately came up with a plan to provide 24 hr care for my mom that would work best for my work schedule, the staff at the office gave me the confidence that my mom was going to be in great hands, they answered all my questions without delay. The in-home care was just as amazing they were compassionate and caring and treated my mom with the utmost respect and love all while giving her the confidence, she needed to believe that she was getting better, months later after my mom was back on her feet the staff followed up with my mom weeks later to ensure she was still doing well. Caring and amazing company over delivered on their promises.
Frequently Asked Questions on Private Home Care Services
Q: What is the difference between medical and non-medical home care?
There are a few primary differences:
- Medical home care is provided by a nurse or other healthcare professional who has been specifically trained to provide medical care in the home. Non-medical home care is generally provided by a personal caregiver who may or may not have any formal training in providing care to people in their homes.
- Medical home care is typically covered by insurance, while non-medical home care is not always covered.
- Medical home care usually includes more comprehensive services than non-medical home care, such as wound dressing changes, injections, and other medical treatments.
- medical home health providers are usually licensed and regulated by the state, while non-medical caregivers are not typically regulated.
- Medical home care is typically more expensive than non-medical home care, but if a senior citizen or disabled person is covered by insurance, the cost of this type of home health care may be partially or fully reimbursed.
Q: How do people choose a home health agency? What are some things I should look for when choosing a home health agency?
There are many factors that go into selecting an in-home healthcare company, including:
- Reputation and reviews;
- Expertise and qualifications of caregivers;
- Professional accreditation;
- Availability and flexibility of scheduling;
- Experience and effectiveness in treating your condition;
- Comfort and ease with the caregiver and agency staff;
- Communication and responsiveness;
- Cost and affordability.
Q: Is Home Health considered medical?
Home health care is a type of medical care provided in the home. It covers a wide range of services, from skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapy to personal care and help with activities of daily living.
Home health care is often less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as care you receive in a hospital or nursing home. A growing number of insurance plans now cover home health services.
If you’re looking for quality home health care, ask your doctor or other health professionals for a referral to a reputable provider. You can also check with your state’s department of aging or department of human services for a list of licensed agencies in your area.
Q: Do I need a referral to receive home health care services?
Home health care is covered by most insurance plans and Medicare. You can contact your insurance company for information about whether you need approval for the services you need. Medicare also has a directory of approved home health agencies for its members.
If you don’t have insurance or your plan doesn’t cover home health care, ask your doctor if he or she knows about local agencies that provide this type of service without cost to patients.
Q: What makes an agency 'excellent'? What steps should I take when looking into an agency?
An excellent home health agency provides highly skilled caregivers who are well-trained in providing medical treatment and personal care at home. An excellent agency will offer a range of services to meet a patient’s needs, and it will be able to provide care for a full range of health problems.
An excellent agency provides 24-hour care in the home when needed from skilled nurses, therapists, and other medical professionals.
In order to find an agency that is “excellent,” look for agencies that have been licensed by the state; agencies that are accredited by industry organizations; agencies whose caregivers are registered with Medicare; and agencies that regularly review their performance.
Q: Do all home health workers need training beyond basic CPR certification?
While most home health care workers receive some on-the-job training, they aren’t always trained healthcare professionals. They may get background checks done through the company they work for but there is usually no additional licensure required.
Q: What are the benefits of hiring a home health agency to care for my loved one?
Hiring someone from a home health agency to provide in-home care offers many benefits, including:
- The ability to choose your own caregiver;
- A wide choice of services and flexible scheduling;
- Better continuity of care than if multiple caregivers were employed by the family;
- Assistance with tasks such as transportation and shopping that can help reduce stress on family members; and
- Greater peace of mind – knowing that your loved one is receiving competent healthcare assistance at all hours day or night, 365 days per year.
