Take Care Private Duty Home Health

Take Care provides individualized private duty home health care to meet your independent lifestyle needs. This care can be scheduled for as little as one hour a day to as much as 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

When you choose Take Care you can expect to meet with a Registered Nurse Clinical Supervisor, as a courtesy, who will discuss with you the appropriate level and frequency of care you require. A Take Care Registered Nurse will:

  • Assist you in determining the hours of care you need and detail the specific duties to be accomplished by the caregiver assigned to you
  • Provide your physician with a written Plan of Care, for your physician’s approval and signature, outlining the Take Care services being provided to you
  • Maintain oversight of the Take Care caregivers who provide your care
  • Stay in close contact with you, your family or other responsible party, and your physician in order to ensure that we continue to provide you with the appropriate level and hours of care

Caregiver Screening

Take Care’s caregivers undergo a strict screening process before they join the Take Care team. Each caregiver receives Level I and Level II fingerprinting and background checks. As required by the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), Take Care complies with the screenings. As additional safety measures, Take Care requires driving records and drug testing of each employee.  Each caregiver is required to have current CPR certification.

Caregiver Training

Take Care’s caregivers are required to complete an 8-hour orientation program in the corporate Take Care office in Sarasota, Florida. Newly hired caregivers are enrolled in the Take Care “On Boarding Program” to match them with mentors to guide them through the initial caregiving process. Take Care’s Registered Nurse Clinical Supervisors oversee the caregivers and ensure their safety as well as the client’s.
