About Desire Home Care
Yeneochia ikhelowa, mph, mba, cpco, is the owner and founder of desire homecare. Her interest to start a homecare came about when a loved one of hers was placed under hospice care in a facility , and received very inadequate care. Her aunt went hours without been rotated, or her soiled clothes and beddings changed. Whenever her family visited, they suffered from the horrible smell from her neglected soiled personal effects. The nurses would say they were "busy with other patients, and cannot tend to patients individually. Ochia and other family members picked up the slack to afford her the dignity and respect she deserved and desired. Although, ochia was only a little girl at the time, she began to wonder and asked every one "why place her in a place she is not happy about, rather than at home with her loved ones and familiar surroundings? It was then she vowed to become a provider of quality and compassionate home care. She went on to build work experiences in health care and home care industries, where she has a combined experience of over 7 years. To make very long story short, this was how desire home care was brought to life. Desire home care, strives to provide the most compassionate and quality in-home care for people with special needs including seniors and for people with physical, mental and/or medical challenges. Help provided include but not limited to personal hygiene, home making, safety and transportation. Safety and happiness is very important to us, and we believe that everyone should and deserves to live life with dignity, happiness and most importantly to its fullest. To ensure this, all members of the dhc family are selected by ochia, and caregivers are monitored and supervised 24/7. Caregivers undergo compassion and empathy training, and homecare industry best practices training. To ensure clients' needs are met, a free assessment is conducted to consult with individuals/families to select caregiver and to determine the level of care needed. After the first day of service, a client check-in is done to verify satisfaction. This allows changes if any to be made, and for clients' input to be heard.
