What Makes CaraVita Different?
1. Locally Owned and Operated
Most home care agencies are national franchises run by business people, not health care professionals. CaraVita Home Care, on the other hand, has been locally owned and operated since its inception. The company was designed by our founder Beth Cayce to fill in a gap she saw between the healthcare industry and families in assisting our community’s seniors to age gracefully in place. She believed that by assembling a group of seasoned health and wellness experts, we could design programs that addressed factors that contribute to functional decline. We share this knowledge with our families’ in-home caregivers and the community at large. The investment we place in the welfare of our clients is why we were chosen in 2014 as the GNFCC Health Care Champion, the 2013 Georgia Small Business Person of the Year by the Small Business Association, and a community site for Second Wind Dreams’ Virtual Dementia Tour®.
2. Professional Staff
CaraVita was founded with a multidisciplinary team that creates for families their own access to a full rehabilitation team of professionals – including registered nurses, therapists, social workers, and caregivers. Our commitment is to be your partner in care. Our team provides a comprehensive review of care needs with the best approach to care, as well as ongoing support for your in-home caregiver and you as a family caregiver. Our management team has a combined 150 years of health care experience. Find out more about CaraVita’s professional team.
3. Academy at CaraVita
When we were deciding where to have the CaraVita offices, we chose to make our home in a house – not an office building. We chose this location to provide real life experiences to our team that families like yours experience every day. We also created the Academy at CaraVita which allows us to professionally train our caregivers to become Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) and provide ongoing continuing education in a rapidly changing healthcare industry. In addition to training our team, the Academy at CaraVita also offers education opportunities, like our Virtual Dementia Tour, for family caregivers and the greater Atlanta community. We strive to keep our staff and the local community up-to-date with current technology and education to best care for your family and help Metro Atlanta’s seniors age gracefully in place. We offer training to Georgia State University and Lanier Technical College students, as well as local ombudsman, government and business leaders, and local senior living communities and hospital staff.
4. Committed to Our Caregivers
When we hire our caregiving staff, we are looking for people who want to learn and develop their skills as the senior care landscape changes. We thoroughly screen for proper skill knowledge and we also hire for the heart. At CaraVita, we wish to foster a culture of learning for our employees to develop new skills and approaches to care. We celebrate our caregivers regularly through a Caregiver of the Month and Caregiver of the Year award, and offer events throughout the year to honor and appreciate their dedication and service to their clients and families. We truly believe our clients and staff are part of the CaraVita family, and want to treat them with the same care and attention we would care for our own families…this is the CaraVita difference.
5. Healthy Balance Programs
As seniors age, their vitality will decline. Since functional decline is the greatest predictor of mortality, even more so than disease in those over 80, our Care Plans can address all of the factors that contribute to functional decline and loss of independence. We can develop programs for cognitive function, mood and behavior, medication compliance, diet, flexibility, mobility, strength, energy conservation, and use of home modification, adaptive aides and technology.
CaraVita Home Care is friendly and treats you as an equal. I love the management and how they tell their staff everything and when we are going to visit.
