Home Health CareCaregiver Services

Medical Center's Caregivers are the important participants of the service provider team during the in-home caregiving process. Our caregiver personnel hold in-home caregiver certificate, have at least 5 years of hospital or in-home caregiving experience and take in-service trainings on regular basis and carry out health checks. Our Caregiver Personnel are responsible for supporting the patients at hospital and/or at their homes in their daily activities, meeting their social needs and taking protective measures.

Our long term Caregiver services are provided as 12 hours’ / 24 Hours’ or live-in caregiver services.

In case of Caregiver service requests, our Home Care Supervisor visits you before the initiation of service. Makes the necessary evaluation regarding the medical condition of your patient, determines your needs and prepare your customized caregiver plan in order to assign the most suitable and competent personnel.

During the term of service, the Home Care Supervisor evaluates all of the collected data during the daily case meetings that the senior physician attends, as well. The caregiver is informed in the light of such information and discussions and the care service is rendered in the most accurate way possible. Also, the Home Care Supervisor visits your home at least once a week in order to audit the rendered service by considering the caregiving needs and dependency level of the patient.

Our caregiver personnel are not allowed to administer interventional treatments. If an interventional treatment is required, that will be administered by a nurse. Medical Center will make the necessary arrangement if required.
