Home Helpers® is Leader in Senior In-Home Care in Clearwater

By Debbie Humphrey

I am very proud that Home Helpers® has gained recognition as a leader in senior in-home care in Clearwater and surrounding areas. I strive to employ the best qualified caregivers who genuinely care about the well-being of others and consistently demonstrate compassion through their words and actions.

I am also immensely proud that for the fourth year in a row, Home Helpers® Clearwater has received the prestigious honor of being named a Best of Home Care® – Provider of Choice. This is extremely special, because it is bestowed upon members of the Home Care Pulse Satisfaction Management Program who have received satisfactory ratings from their clients.

The Home Care Pulse website states, “The Best of Home Care® – Provider of Choice award is based on client satisfaction ratings collected from telephone interviews performed by Home Care Pulse, an independent satisfaction research firm. These home care agencies are best-in-class for providing quality care to their clients. This recognition assures that the agency is trustworthy and has proven their ability to provide outstanding in-home care services.”

To qualify for this annual award, a home care agency must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a Home Care Pulse Certified – Trusted Provider for a minimum of 6 consecutive months.
  • Must have 10% of current clients interviewed by Home Care Pulse each month.
  • Must outperform other home care agencies in their geographic region in areas of client satisfaction.

This is humbling to me, because it means we are doing our jobs and our clients are willing to take time to share their positive experiences about their experiences with our agency and amazing caregivers.

Home Helpers® Clearwater is actively involved in the following associations and partnerships:

  • Home Care Association of America
  • Home Care Association of FL
  • Veterans Care Coordination to assist with providing Veterans Services

I don’t share this to boast, but rather to inform you of my qualifications as an in-home care expert and owner of an award-winning, local in-home healthcare agency.

One reason I believe our in-home healthcare agency has been so successful over the years is the high standard that must be met before a caregiver is hired. Your family’s safety is our first priority at Home Helpers®. The professional caregivers I employ are thoroughly vetted, meaning they undergo extensive screenings and background checks, along with continued training and education through Home Helpers University, so they can perform at their best, no matter what the circumstances.

Care-giving is not easy. It requires patience, understanding, compassion, and sometimes physical labor. Not everyone is cut-out to be a caregiver, but those who are blessed to possess compassionate hearts find it easy and rewarding to make an emotional investment when caring for others. Caregivers find the work exceptionally rewarding, and they will be the first to tell you what deep levels of satisfaction they feel when they know they’ve made someone else’s day a little better and brighter just by being there!

If you aspire to be a caregiver for a friend or family member – or for a special someone you’ve never met – I welcome the opportunity to meet you! Simply visit our Caregiver Employment page to get the vetting process started, and you could be on your way to becoming a Home Helpers® caregiver!

If you or a loved one is in search of in-home care, I am happy to offer a FREE Consultation to get to know you and assess your specific needs. Home Helpers® caregivers provide non-medical assistance with personal hygiene, companionship, light housework, grocery shopping, pharmacy pick-ups, meal preparation, transportation assistance, and more.
