Generation X is experiencing a unique phenomenon; they are trying to raise children and provide eldercare for parents while trying to achieve work-life balance. Nestled between two much larger generations, Gen Xers are in the thick of it, with 75% having children and half also having a parent or parents over the age of 65.
TLC Caregivers is Northwest Florida’s most established provider of private, non-medical personal care. As an industry leader serving the Gulf Coast Florida Panhandle for more than thirty-one years, TLC’s mission is to deliver the highest quality assistance to those in need while maintaining their dignity and independence.
Setting TLC apart in the industry are in-home services extending beyond eldercare. A little known fact is that TLC Caregivers also supports a growing segment of underserved community members who are strong, healthy, vibrant, and in the prime of their lives with respite care services for loved ones.
Respite care assists with eating, dressing, bathing, toileting, transferring, continence, meal preparation, light housekeeping, and medication reminders while offering friendly company. This level of service also allows loved ones to feel empowered with TLC offering a sense of independence while giving primary caregivers a break to focus on other immediate and pressing matters.
The best services are personalized to meet individual needs and create an extraordinary experience. Often our aging loved ones need more from a social perspective with only light assistance around the house. TLC Caregivers offers companionship care providing aid with light housekeeping, errands, and transportation assistance to and from social events.
Although many think of eldercare when discussing respite services, it also includes childcare. TLC Caregivers also offers childcare – including babysitting services – for infants through school-age children with services including feeding, dressing, bathing, help with toilet training, meal preparation, transportation, and homework. Whether it’s all-day care that is required, or simply a few hours, caregivers are trained to help manage everyday responsibilities.
Their homemaker services are ideal for families needing an extra hand with light housekeeping as well as families needing assistance with heavier housekeeping responsibilities. TLC has been employed on several occasions to help sanitize homes before newborns, or immunocompromised loved ones are brought into the home.
TLC Caregivers is a trusted source of non-medical private care along the Gulf Coast and frequently contracts with medical facilities to supplement non-medical staff shortages. Although they are non-medical providers, they accept insurance as well as private pay and can assist your loved one in multiple facility settings, including in-home, assisted living, nursing home, hospital, and hospice care.
Although it may feel risky employing an in-home personal care agency, TLC Caregivers maintains strict and rigid quality standards exceeding state requirements. Employees receive an initial 10-panel drug screen – implemented by a physician-directed lab – with random testing throughout their employment. Additionally, employees must pass a vigorous local, state, and federal background checks as well as a background in caregiving. Employees are bonded, insured, and covered by workers’ compensation insurance.
