In more acute situations, such as during a hospital stay, our Care Managers will communicate personally with physicians, physical therapists, and other medical professionals regarding your loved one’s treatment. After your loved one is discharged from the hospital, the home care aide will act under the direct supervision of a Care Manager to ensure that the doctor’s orders and recommendations are followed closely.
Comprehensive in-home care assessment and planning process
In order to help you determine your loved one’s home care requirements, educate you about our services, and welcome you to Chosen Family Home Care, we take the following steps:
- Conduct an In-Home Care Assessment

Our first step in tailoring the right care relationship for your family is to conduct a complimentary in-home care assessment in your home or discharging medical facility. We provide no-obligation in-home care assessments to customers in Philadelphia, Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, and Chester county communities.
After evaluating your family’s goals and the physical and emotional needs of your loved one, an experienced Care Manager will recommend a number of hours and level of assistance. Your Care Manager will identify the services that best fit your loved one’s circumstances and develop a customized senior home care plan, which a local, highly trained Chosen Family caregiver will adhere to with dedication and care.
After developing your personalized care plan, we will choose the most qualified caregiver with the required knowledge, skills, and abilities while emphasizing a fit in personality and cultural competency. Upon the start of care, we will facilitate a caregiver orientation specifically tailored to the care plan. Our Care Managers will supervise the care your loved one receives on an ongoing basis, performing reassessments as needed.
