Hello and thank you for requesting more information regarding the team that is, “As Close As Family.” With nearly 25 years of healthcare experience, 18 of those being in home healthcare, the founders of ACAF saw the recurring need for premium in-home care that has something to offer every family that is looking for that second-to-none premium care for themselves or their loved ones. After many hours of prayer, research, meetings, etc, ACAF was established. We have all heard the horror stories of theft, neglect, manipulation, coercion, abuse, etc. of the senior community, and it seems those reports are in the news on an almost daily basis. The goal of ACAF is to provide clients and families with that peace of mind, in which they they do not have to ever worry about becoming a victim. All prospective team members must undergo one of the most rigorous and stringent screening processes required by non medical home care agencies. Screenings include, but not limited to, criminal background check, drug screening, TB skin test, National Sex Offender’s Registry screening, Medicaid OIG, and E-verified, before being offered a position with As Close As Family, LLC.
The management at ACAF took it another step to ensure their clients and families would have that worry free care. ALL team members are worker's compensation insured, as well as general liability bonded. Many people think their homeowner’s insurance policy will cover in case that someone is injured while on their property. This is a myth. When someone is hired for a job on your property then you could be liable for any injuries involved unless that person or company has provided worker's compensation insurance. Many companies will tell you they are bonded and that you are covered by that…again a myth. Being "bonded" does NOT cover staff injuries. Should an ACAF team member hurt their back while on your property, no worries, they are ALL fully insured thru workers compensation insurance. This type of coverage is very rare in the non medical home care world….so much so that As Close As Family is the ONLY locally owned agency providing this type of coverage. If you are not sure if a caregiver or agency provides this benefit, just ask for them to provide their certificate of verification. A new service offered by ACAF is insured transportation services. The caregiver and the client are covered should they be in an accident, whether in the client or team member's vehicle, thus providing another unrivaled benefit of care provided by the team that is, "As Close As Family."
As Close As Family, LLC, strives to provide top notch, premium in-home, CNA’s, caregivers, and sitters, that can assist with most task around the home. Services include meal prep, laundry, cleaning, medication reminders, companionship, and transportation, just to name a few. Premium care is available 24/7, and is provided by competent, trained caregivers that have been carefully selected thru interviews, reference checks, and the unrivaled screening process required by ACAF. ACAF is an independent, non franchise agency, thus providing you and your family with premium, top notch care that is appropriate for every need and budget. Feel free to reach out to the team at 256-638-6009, with any questions or to schedule a complimentary in home assessment. In your time of need, whether for you or a loved one, why choose anyone other than the team that is, “As Close As Family.”
