Welcome to Greater Living Home Care!
Services are provided to children under the age of 21 with special needs, including developmental and/or physical challenges. It surprises many of our families to learn that they qualify within 30 days of submitting their applications.
Those who are under age 21, are on Medicaid, and have a physical disability such as Cerebral Palsy, Paraplegia, Spina Bifida, Muscular Dystrophy, Traumatic Brain Injury or Hydrocephalus may be a perfect fit for our services. Additionally, those individuals with medically fragile needs such as seizure disorders or epilepsy and those who have needs such as G-Tube and Trach Care may also be good candidates for our services.
Our Four Step Process
Our First Phone Call and Needs Assessment
We begin evaluating you and your loved one’s unique needs the moment you call. We ask questions during the initial call to develop a basic needs assessment.
Once we have completed the call, we then schedule an in-home visit with you and your family, including the family member who may benefit from our in-home care services.
This visit allows us to obtain further information, answer questions, and explain how we can assist you.
The Custom Care Plan
At Greater Living Home Care we want to always make sure that our clients are fully aware of the services they will be receiving. Following our initial intake meeting, we will then work on creating a Custom Care Plan for our client.
This plan is customized to meet the unique needs of a family’s loved one. Our medical staff gives specific recommendations about the types of services they think would be the best for your loved one’s medical needs.
Next, we schedule a follow-up meeting to go through the Custom Care Plan and make changes as needed.
Caregiver Matching Begins
Once the Custom Care Plan has been approved and reviewed, we begin the process of looking for the best-qualified caregiver to provide care.
Many aspects are taken into consideration when matching our nursing staff to clients, including the services required, your loved one’s interests, and the personality of both a family’s loved one and the caregiver.
Because we look at the whole situation, we’re better able to make sure your loved one gets the best care possible.
Of course if there are any problems with a specific caregiver along the way, our administrative staff at Greater Living Home Care will search for new nursing staff that is a better fit for a family.
Documentation is key. All our nursing staff takes extensive notes about the care that they provide to each client. Those notes are made available at any moment for our families.
To make sure caregivers are following the Custom Care Plan, our supervisory nurses will oftentimes make unannounced visits to the home.
Private Home Care
Greater Living Home Care is a Medicaid-approved program and is a part of the Georgia Pediatric Program (GAPP). GAPP is a Medicaid-funded program, which specializes in skilled and unskilled home care services.
The GAPP program provides In-Home Nursing Support Care to eligible members based on the medical necessity determination for children under the age of 20 years and 11 months.
