Addus HealthCare has been providing quality in-home services since 1979. From companionship to specialized home health care, our services are designed to make your choice easier... to remain independent at home.
No one knows more about the health of the client than the Home Care Aide ... no one.
Recognizing the critically important role our Home Care Aides (HCA’s) play in Addus’ holistic approach to in-home care, and, specifically, in observing and reporting changes in consumers’ conditions, we developed the Addus Dual Advantage model to educate and empower our HCAs, and facilitate their effective execution of this important responsibility. As members of the health care team, we expect our HCA’s to identify, observe and report changes in the consumer’s overall condition, as well as any specific medical or behavioral changes that may require medical intervention, ultimately avoiding potential hospitalization. The Addus Dual Advantage video below illustrates how the effective integration of in-home personal care and medical services drives better medical outcomes and lower costs for the dual eligible and Medicaid population, while improving their quality of life.
