Mi Casa's personal care services range from 3-hour shifts to 24/7 care. Whether you need companionship, housekeeping, help with errands and meal preparation, or assistance with bathing, transfers, medications, our caregivers can help.

 

All caregiver services are structured using a Plan of Care developed by a Mi Casa Registered Nurse in collaboration with the client and/or their family.

Nursing supervision of our caregivers is an important aspect of the high quality care we're proud to provide.

 

Mi Casa's caregivers assist with activities of daily living, homemaking and direct personal care in accordance with an individualized Plan of Care. The Mi Casa Plan of Care specifically identifies the services and care required by the client.

 

The Plan of Care document is regularly updated based on changes in the client's condition, living situation and individual needs. In order to ensure that each client's needs and goals are met during every shift, our caregivers are trained to carefully follow the Plan of Care.

 

Our caregivers document all care provided during each shift, as well as the client's condition and response to care; these notes are regularly reviewed by a Mi Casa Registered Nurse in the interest of accuracy, proper documentation and timely follow-up.
