All services shall be provided for within 30 km radius from the CIMS Hospital and 24 hrs services (day-night care) available across the Gujarat, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh in India.
2. Will my family member always receive care from the same caregiver?
Our goal is to establish a long-term care-giving relationship with your loved one. Should your family want to request another caregiver for any reason, we’ll search for a match until your family is happy. We understand that a strong rapport and trust with a caregiver is vital for a successful home care experience.
If your loved one receives care for many hours in a day or at different times of the day throughout the week, it may be necessary to schedule more than one caregiver in a given week. If your family requires multiple caregivers, our goal is the same: we want you to be satisfied and happy. We’ll do what it takes to make sure we achieve that goal.
3. Can I change or discontinue the services my loved one receives?
You can change the number or type of service we provide your loved one whenever it’s necessary. We understand the care situation can quickly change, so we’re as flexible as possible with your loved one’s care. Plus, you’re never bound to a long-term contract, so you can discontinue your relationship with Care At Homes at your discretion.
4. How can I verify a shift was completed?
Care At Homes uses several tools to track our caregivers. First, we use simple timesheets filled out by each caregiver. This allows you to have a written record of services within the home where care is provided. And we can provide written verification at any time.
Also, our itemized invoices are always sent after services are complete. This lets you ask any questions about time or date of care, and it allows us to make any schedule adjustments before your invoice is sent.
5. Do I need a physician’s authorization for your services?
No. You don’t need pre-authorization, pre-qualification, certification or even a prescription for Care At Homes services. You choose the services you want, when to start those services and how often those services are used.
6. What are the costs of your home care services?
Every family we serve receives a Custom Care Plan specific to their needs and budget. Several factors help determine the exact cost:
Number of hours of care per week
Level of home care services received (Care giver, skilled nursing, etc.)
Our home care services are typically billed on an hourly basis. This makes it easy to make a Custom Care Plan for you. To discuss the exact rates for the services you may need, contact our office. We’ll set up an in-home consultation to begin discussing a Custom Care Plan and the rates for each service on your plan.
We always provide a written rate sheet prior to initiating care services. Rates will never be increased without at least thirty days notice.
7. Do I pay the caregiver directly?
No. You (or an authorized representative) are only invoiced after the completion of services. Usually, this happens weekly. You never have to pay caregivers directly. And you’ll never be asked to pay an additional fee to any employee.
8. How is the privacy of my personal information maintained?
We adhere to all guidelines applicable to privacy of personal and healthcare information. This starts once we have a formal services agreement (Consent), before a caregiver even comes to your family member’s home. The written service agreement (consent) stipulates the exact restrictions on the use of your information, which clarifies that even unauthorized individuals will not be given access to information without a client’s – or legally authorized representative’s – formal consent.
Your information is never sold to a third party under any circumstances. In fact, only the office personnel and caregivers who are directly involved in your services will have access to information related to the care of your loved one.

Usually, care can begin as soon as possible.
10. How do I determine what level of service my family member needs? What if circumstances change? How can I be sure the services will remain appropriate?
