June 13, 2011 - PRLog -- Lewis Bower Jr., president, and Carol Cadett, LPN, of KeepMeKome — an in home health care service provider in Connecticut— were guest speakers at the Wethersfield/Rocky Hill Rotary Club's meeting held at Dakota's restaurant in Rocky Hill on Tuesday, May 31, 2011.

Lewis explained, "Just as our name implies, KeepMeHome provides help to seniors and their families with nurses, homemakers, home health aides, companions, and therapy services statewide for the elderly, individuals recovering from illness or surgery, disabled persons, and people needing infant and elderly sitters or simply a respite from caring for a loved one."

Lewis went on to explain how KeepMeHome can provide as much or as little help as needed, including help with cooking, cleaning, grooming, shopping, transportation, medical schedules, friendship as well as nursing and social work services. While admission to licensed services is contingent upon physician’s orders and an evaluation by an in-house RN, PT, or ST, the other services may be contracted for directly.

Lewis outlined the importance of screening its providers by giving them background checks and drug tests, and furnishes personnel that are bonded and fully insured for liability and workmen’s compensation. "At $15 to $24 per hour, with most of the charges falling between $17 and $20,  it’s not much more than people pay individuals directly, often in cash and without the safeguards of proper screening and insurance,” he noted.

“We service 85% of the state, and we’re open 365 days a year,” he said.  Lewis invited anyone interested in more information to contact KeepMeHome.  “There are lot of options available today,” he said, citing area access agencies, the “Money Follows the Person” program that can be used to transfer someone out of a nursing home, and other ways of providing help to those requiring it.

The attending Rotarians found the information extremely helpful and asked some pointed questions. "The biggest problem seniors and their families have is that they don't know where to turn for this information. That's why I believe it's important to get the word out," explained Lewis.
