Q: What are the three most important qualities to look for in a caregiver?
A: Compassion, passion for helping others and strong skill set are key. Our caregivers are Certified Nursing Assistants who have a minimum of 5 years experience. With our 4-level screening process, extensive background & reference checks, in-depth interviews and skill assessments, clients can be assured of receiving a fully qualified caregiver. For your peace of mind, all caregivers are insured and covered under Workers Compensation.
Q: What services should I expect from a caregiver?
A: Our caregivers provide non-medical assistance including personal care tasks and homemaker services. Personalized and customized Care Plans can include the following: bathing, dressing, grooming, daily hygiene, oral care, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, transportation and companionship. Our services are available on an hourly or "live-in" basis.
Q: What happens if our caregiver is unable to report to work due to illness or emergency?
A: Easy Living Services has a large staff of qualified, professional and reliable caregivers, ensuring a timely replacement in the event of caregiver illness or emergency absence.
Q: Are Easy Living caregivers bonded and insured?

Our associates meet or exceed all state requirements for caregiver training, skills, medical clearance, insurance and criminal background clearance.
Q: Why shouldn't I hire a private caregiver off of the internet or the newspaper?
A. All of our caregivers are carefully screened, trained and insured for your safety. Our caregivers have received specialty training in caring for seniors and the disabled as well as those recovering from illness. Their credentials have been thoroughly evaluated and skills assessed by our Registered Nurse. Why take a chance with your loved one's safety and security?
Q: What is "Live-In" care and how is the cost determined?
A. Clients requiring 24 hr. care can opt for a caregiver to live with their loved one. The caregiver must have 7-8 hrs of uninterrupted sleep and have access to their own, private sleeping accomodations. Live-in arrangements are available for both Companion and Personal Care services. Easy Living Services rates are highly competitive --starting at $185/day.
Q: Can I pay by the hour?
A: Yes. Some clients require only part-time care. Easy Living Services provides hourly care starting at only $16.95/Hour (some minimums apply)
Q: Who do I contact for after hours emergencies?
A: Easy Living Services is responsive to your needs 24/7. When the office is closed, calls are routed to a staff member for immediate attention.
Q: Why would I want to select a locally owned company like Easy Living rather than a franchised agency?
A: Our non-franchised structure allows Easy Living to offer our clients completely flexible and customized service options. Client driven changes can be made locally without having to go through corporate "red tape". Our organizational structure allows us to offer the industry's most competitive pricing and highest value. Easy Living's owner & President, Debby Franklin, possesses years of health industry experience and enjoys being an active part of the day to day business. At Easy Living, we believe that caring is more than just a business, it's our philosophy in action, every day!
