Home Care Reviews for Home Well Senior Care - Virginia

My dad was in the assisted living that worked with Homewell of Northern Virginia so the facility called them. We've been working with them since December. Right now, we have 24 hour care. They assist my dad with bathing, cleaning, turning and getting up. The caregivers we have now are very good. They’re all different, some are more interactive with my father than the others but for the most part they're all good. We've had a few that have not worked out so they've been replaced, but the ones we have now have been good. In addition, scheduling of caregiver is good now because they send us the schedule ahead of time. For a while, we had to call everyday to see who is coming the next day and if the next day was fully covered. Now they email it to us, let us know who is coming and what time.

I had said something to my regular doctor and he gave me Homewell's card. I can't do chores anymore so basically, they take care of the cats and also the house like do my laundry but the main thing is they take me anywhere I need to go. The caregivers have all been VERY nice and helpful. The scheduling and billing have been all worked out as well.

We've been with Homewell of Northern Virginia since July 2017. After meeting with them, it seems that they had more to offer both from a business and personal standpoint. Business wise, they seem like they have a good process and seems like they treated their staff well. Then from a personal standpoint, they ask questions and try to get to know my mother and match her with the right people. They help pretty much with everything. They have helped coordinate therapy, provide the aide service in the morning from 8:30am to 4:30pm that includes bathing, eating, light housekeeping and everything else. In terms of emergency service, they've been just great too. There are a few times that I've had to travel so they have someone come overnight and stay with my mom. It's just like me being there. In fact, she likes them more than me! The caregivers are very knowledgeable of their craft in the sense that they know how to move my mom based on her condition. She's fragile and everything aches. So they're able to move her and change her and do things with her. I'm horrible at that because when I touch her it seems I'm hurting her every time. So they're very knowledgeable in providing service to elderly persons, particularly someone with medical conditions. They also ask me about her medical condition and then base the service plan on that. Secondly, they'€™re just knowledgeable in terms of how they relate very well to her. All of them treat her just like their mom. It's been another big plus. We've been going through the service since 2012 so I have some background. I think it's a smooth operation in every level. It's not only the aides but also the people I interact with on the administrative side. It's just very well run.

About Home Well Senior Care - Virginia

This agency was established by a Harvard MBA, who is passionate about the care seniors get in their home. We have assembled an excellent nursing and administrative team to deliver reliable, trustworthy, and outstanding care throughout the region. Our nursing staff culture and mission contribute to HomeWell being an excellent place to work, and an excellent agency for families to work with.

Our Specialties include:

  • Transitional Care. We are focused on reducing rehospitalizations by creating a happy and safe transition home. In facilities patients have round the clock care, so our program is designed to offer frequent care immediately upon returning home, and tapering care down as clients becomes more independent. This program, coupled with our Fall Prevention program, has been very successful in reducing falls and rehospitalization during the initial transition home.
  • Fall Prevention. All our caregivers are trained at orientation, and again annually, in the tactical skills needed for body mechanics, mitigating environmental risks of falls, and addressing critical factors such as new medicines, non-compliance with discharge orders, or ongoing medical conditions. Before they go into the field, all personal assistants demonstrate competency with these required skill sets.
  • Life Enrichments Activities Program. Our care targets the social/emotional well-being of our clients. As part of their initial assessment our clients are interviewed to discover their likes and interests, which we systemically introduce into care plans. LEAP allows our personal assistants the opportunity to truly engage with clients and improve their quality of life during the time we have the honor of working with them.
