Services for Help with a Heart (Private Pay) Clients

***********************************************************************************

Our Help with a Heart program is designed for people who would like to purchase our services.  Respite care is intended to provide you with relief from your daily care giving responsibilities.  At your request, BRC Respite Care Providers will come to your home and provide care in a manner appropriate to meet the needs of the person with special needs in your family.  This includes, but is not limited to:

BRC Respite Care Providers are there to care ONLY for the client in the home.  They are not permitted to care for additional frail or disabled adults or minor children present without an adult responsible for their care, nor are they permitted to bring or have their own family or friends visit them during a booking.

BRC Respite Care Providers will also prepare and serve simple meals for the individuals under their care.  However, then should not be requested to serve the entire family in this capacity. 

BRC Respite Care Providers provide light housekeeping, which is intended to relieve you from part of your daily care giving responsibilities.  Respite Care Providers should not spend more than 25% of their time doing housekeeping duties, or more than 15 minutes for every hour.  Also, they should not be requested to do heavy cleaning chores or be the sole provider of all homemaking for a particular household.

Respite Care Providers are NOT allowed to do anything medical.  This includes, but is not limited to:  injections, changing catheters, oxygen administration, and non-oral/non-topical medications: no procedures that require specialized training.
