No-Cost Services

At United Energy Workers Healthcare, we are dedicated to providing the best possible care for those receiving benefits under EEOICPA. This includes home visits, helping with the administration of medication, and assisting our clients with daily tasks, such as dressing, eating, and bathing. However, we also understand that the types of serious illnesses suffered by our clients can take an extreme emotional and physical toll on the patients’ families and so do what we can to help alleviate some of these stresses by providing emotional support and family-based training programs.

Training Programs

Our dedicated home health care team provides three forms of assistance including:

  • Personal care;
  • Training programs for family members; and
  • Medical monitoring and administration of medication.

Our training program is specifically aimed at helping family members become certified in home health care. Without this certification family members cannot be reimbursed for taking care of their loved ones, which can make it difficult to make ends meet.

Household Tasks

As part of our duties, the home care team at United Energy Workers Healthcare also handles basic household tasks. This could include light housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, grocery shopping, and paperwork management. These types of duties can help keep the patient comfortable, while also providing family members with a well-earned break. Before eligible parties receive approval from EEOICPA, they are often completely dependent on their family members for most activities, including dressing, meal preparation, transportation, and medication administration. Handling all of these responsibilities single handedly can be extremely stressful, especially for a family member who is already worrying about a loved one’s serious illness. By performing these simple tasks, we hope to provide the spouses, children, siblings, and friends of our patients with the opportunity to take a small break from their duties.

Peace of Mind

We are also dedicated to helping the family members of patients achieve peace of mind by ensuring that their loved ones are cared for by an efficient and caring staff. Many of our clients do not have family members in the immediate area and our presence can help relieve relatives and friends of some of their worries. Because we perform basic household tasks, prepare nutritious meals, and assist clients with their paperwork and bills, family members can rest assured that despite their absence, the patient is being well cared for and receiving the medical care that he or she needs. Helping our clients maintain their independence also helps them keep their spirits up, while also allowing family members to continue their current employment, which in turn can help all parties remain financially afloat.
