Finding the right homecare professional to care for a family member is very important for both your loved one and for you! That is why Housen Homecare has worked hard to build and maintain a Residential Service Agency (RSA) that places your family’s needs above all else.
Here are a few ways that Housen’s approach to homecare differs from other RSAs, and why we are fast becoming a leading homecare provider in the Washington Metropolitan Area:
We Are a Longstanding and Trusted Homecare Provider
Since 1991, Housen Homecare has provided professional and compassionate care for families seeking quality homecare for their loved ones. Our nearly 24 years of service has surpassed the longevity of many of our regional competitors. As a result, Housen Homecare has built a solid track record for being one of the best homecare service providers in the Washington, DC area.
We Understand the Intricacies of the Region’s Healthcare System
By concentrating on delivering services in the Washington Metropolitan Area, Housen Homecare has become a well-known brand in the region’s healthcare market. As such, we have a broad knowledge of the area’s healthcare system, federal and state healthcare laws and regulations, and have established working relationships with healthcare administrators and social workers throughout the region. Using our broad knowledge and relationships, we help our clients maneuver through the maze of red tape inherent in social services and healthcare waiver programs.
We Are as Compassionate as We Are Skilled
Housen Homecare prides itself on the caring nature of its homecare team. Not only are our caregivers highly trained, they are eminently empathetic. Upon placing a caregiver in the home, we learn about patient sensitivities and make our caregiver aware of these sensitivities. As with every client, our caregivers exhibit the most appropriate and compassionate bedside manner at all times. Being aware of a patient’s sensitivities enables our caregiver to deliver care in a way that doesn’t cause our patient further discomfort.
We Provide Tailored Homecare Solutions.
We employ some of the region’s most experienced caregivers—many of whom have been part of our team for more than 15 years. Because we hire experienced homecare professionals, we can assign caregivers who specialize in one or more of the following health conditions:
We Focus on Quality Assurance.
At Housen Homecare, we go to great lengths to ensure that our patients and their families are pleased with our service. That is why we employ a comprehensive quality assurance plan for each patient. From having one of our registered nurses conduct an extensive patient pre-audit to documenting the patient’s physical condition to tracking the time and attendance of caregivers, we monitor every aspect of a patient’s care to ensure the delivery of quality care. In so doing, we collaborate closely with the patient’s medical staff and family members to ensure that our care is in sync with the patient’s medical or recovery plan. Further, we consult daily with family members to gain insight on any changes in the patient’s family structure or home situation and to obtain feedback on our service.
We Value Our Employees
At Housen Homecare, we know that our employees are the foundation of our success. That is why we strive to provide a rewarding employment experience for all of our employees. In so doing, we offer competitive wages, a generous benefits package, in-service training, a retirement plan, workers compensation, and worker liability insurance.
