About our St Louis Home Care agency
See why so many St. Louis families trust Cooperative Home Care
“We are dedicated to the success of our clients and employees. We are committed to the delivery of quality healthcare services.”
Our statement, “Any Funding, Any Amount of Care, Any Service”, reflects our ability to accept every type of home care funding. This enables us to help almost everyone who contacts us, and to combine your specific funding options to create your most affordable home care plan.
We will do everything possible to keep you safe and independent in your own home, in a way that is customized to your healthcare needs now, and if they change. Through your care, we uphold our six Core Values:
- Pursue Growth
- Challenge the Limits
- Empower People
- Commitment to Cooperative
- Our Team is Our Family
- Embrace Inclusivity
There’s no place like home.
Our founder, Fran Sontag, was driven to help people who were often overlooked and who could not advocate for themselves. She began by providing in-home education for several young adults with disabilities. Through serving them, it was apparent that they could benefit from additional in-home services. Fran’s drive and dedication continue through her son-in-law, Mitch Waks, and through all of our employees today.
The Unique Approach of St Louis Home Care
How St. Louis Home Care Makes Life Easier for Everyone
Any Funding, Any Amount of Care, Any Skill Level
We make it possible for people to maintain their independence and rehabilitate at home. That means:
We explore and provide any possible funding source, from government (Medicare, Medicaid and VA) to insurance (health, long-term care and worker’s compensation) to reduced-fee programs and self-pay.
Any amount of care
We have no minimum or maximum hours. We offer visits, hourly care and 12- and 24-hour shifts.
Any skill level.
We provide nursing, therapies, social workers and caregiver services.
Dementia Speciality Program
Cooperative has Certified Dementia Practitioners who are accredited through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners (NCCDP). Our trainers provide dementia education for caring for people with dementia during our two-day orientation training, as well at our annual caregiver in-services. We also offer Crisis Prevention Intervention (“CPI”) training for caregivers which helps them proactively and safely care for individuals who may be confused and/or agitated.
Free Assessment And Care Plan
Our free assessment is a great resource even when you are not quite ready to begin services. You can still discuss the specifics of your loved one’s needs, learn about how to pay for home care and what it may cost you, and begin considering your loved one’s options. At the end of the assessment, your completed Communication Book is ready, including your customized care plan.
Our Proven Process
Cooperative uses our unique ability to accept every type of funding to provide the most comprehensive and affordable home care services. We begin by qualifying you for every type of home care funding. We help you access all of your existing benefits through MO Medicaid, Medicare, long-term care insurance, and VA funding. Only then, if needed, do you pay out-of-pocket.
St. Louis Home Care Experts
What Sets Us Apart
Dad’s physician can determine what is causing his decline. He or she can also prescribe Medicare home health care to evaluate him for physical therapy visits in his home to improve his balance, strength, and coordination, effectively minimizing his fall risk. While you may know Medicare helps your aging parent after a hospital stay, you may not know that Medicare is also a proactive intervention to prevent a more serious injury and to improve life quality. As one Medicare home health qualifier is that you must be under a physician’s care; your physician is the one who will prescribe Medicare home health if appropriate.
When his doctor prescribes Medicare home health through Cooperative Home Care, your dad has access to our proactive home health monitoring system. This system measures one’s weight, blood pressure, heart rate and pulse-ox for early detection of symptoms that need nursing intervention to prevent another hospitalization. This is very important for people with diseases that put them at risk for frequent hospitalizations, and it is not available through all home care companies.
Our Nurse will answer your home care questions and schedule your free in-home assessment. During your free assessment, Cooperative Home Care creates your individualized care plan, incorporating our popular mini-visits, 12 and 24-hour shift rates and Value Packages to meet your home care needs and save you money.
Remember when you are in the hospital, you absolutely have the right to choose your Medicare home health provider ( you do not have to choose the hospital’s own home care company, or even the one your doctor recommends). Because many clients have needs for more than one type of service (Medicare and Private Services in this scenario) you should consider if your provider can meet both needs, or if you’ll have to use two different companies-a less desirable option.
Her physician can assess her new health care needs and can also prescribe Medicare home health care if her needs require short-term nursing, therapies (PT, OT, speech), social worker and/or home health aide (bathing only) assistance. If she needs ongoing assistance and supervision in addition to, or instead of, short-term Medicare home health care, consider Private Services. Private Services are customized to one’s specific needs. They can include two-hour mini-visits up to 24-hour care; examples include help getting up, showered and dressed for the day, meal prep and/or assistance going to bed at end of day. Other tasks include household chores like laundry and medication assistance through a combination of a nurse to pack medication and caregiver(s) for medication reminders.
