“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:
#1 Pursue Growth
#2 Challenge the Limits
#3 Empower People
#4 Commitment to Cooperative
#5 Our Team is Our Family
#6 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.
What We Do
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:
Any funding. 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.
WHAT SETS US APART
We Are Your Most Affordable Option
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. You will not pay out-of-pocket until we have exhausted every other resource.
We Can Meet All of Your Healthcare Needs
We provide Medicare (skilled medical services) and Private Services (daily living assistance). We can help with your healthcare needs now, and if they change. One comprehensive home care provider means that you receive seamless communication and excellent, affordable care.
We Have the Right Caregivers, As Soon As You Need Them
It is shocking and stressful when your loved one suddenly needs help. How are you going to do this?! We understand your panic, and we act immediately to provide the caregivers and nurses you need. Our five local offices include hundreds of qualified and trained caregivers and nurses, many of whom have worked for us for five or more years.
