Information for Care Providers

What Can In-Home Care Provide for my Patients?

In-Home Care Services, like those provided by A First Name Basis Home Care, provide comfort and compassionate care for a variety of patients, even if they are already receiving home health, hospice, rehab, or other services.

In-Home Care Services are not restricted by hour or service limits, which means patients can have care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, on any schedule. The Management and Staff at A First Name Basis Home Care highly promote additional services (home health, hospice, therapy, etc.) for those clients who qualify.  While we do not provide skilled care directly, we understand how patients can benefit from additional services.
