Home Care

Seniors or loved ones with temporary or permanent mental or physical challenges do not always require skilled nursing services, yet still require assistance and care. Senior Solutions provides two types of affordable Home Care Services, in which our caregivers are trained and supervised by a Certified Care Manager, through our Certified Care Manager Directed Home Care and Self-Directed Home Care services. Senior Solutions offers private help that may allow you or your loved one to remain at home or in an assisted living facility longer, maintaining independence and a higher quality of life. Call 610-435-5800 today and help your loved one stay at home.

Certified Care Manager Directed Home Care

Through our Certified Care Manager Directed agency service, we provide caregivers who are employed directly through Morningstar Senior Solutions (MSS). Clients receive a weekly invoice, payable directly to Senior Solutions, and have an option of hiring a Home Health Aide, who can provide more hands-on care such as bathing, dressing, therapy and exercise, or a Companion, who can help with simpler tasks such as errands, transportation to appointments, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, or just companionship.

Certified Care Manager Directed caregivers meet our stringent requirements; as an employee of Morningstar Senior Solutions, they must have an acceptable criminal history and driving record, pass a physical, TB test and be CPR-certified prior to hire. Morningstar Senior Solutions ensures caregivers are bonded, insured, and covered under our Workers Compensation policy. All are required to have a minimum of 2 years experience as a caregiver and must successfully pass our skills examination.

Certified Care Manager Directed caregivers must also complete a series of seven competency exams annually, along with select training sessions in specific areas of care, such as Alzheimers, asthma, dementia, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, transfer techniques and skin care. This continuing, specific training ensures that they are better able to recognize warning signs and symptoms of your loved one’s condition, which can provide added safety or opportunities for preventive care.

Training and supervision is managed by one of our Certified Care Managers.  Our Certified Care Manager performs an initial assessment of all clients and develops an individualized Plan of Care (unless they are under the care of a home health or hospice provider). As appropriate, she will monitor the caregivers and make changes to the Plan of Care as the client improves or his/her condition changes.

Self-Directed Home Care

Through our registry home care service, caregivers are provided as independent contractors of Morningstar Senior Solutions. They will work directly for you or your loved one. An hourly rate is remitted directly to the caregiver, and a small percentage paid directly to Senior Solutions.

With self-directed care, Senior Solutions is responsible for interviewing, scheduling, finding replacements should your caregiver be sick, and testing and background checks (criminal history, TB test, annual skills test and PA State Competency requirements). Senior Solutions also maintains theft and liability insurance. As independent contractors, our self-directed caregivers work directly for your or you loved one; you maintain responsibility for directing them regarding the care and services required.

Your organization has been a godsend to my family over the past few months. Thank you to Patty, who went beyond the call to provide excellent care management for my mother.
