Family Directed Home Care knows what Sickle Cell Anemia care requires

Your red blood cells are flexible and round, moving easily through your blood vessels. With Sickle Cell Anemia, the red blood cells become rigid and sticky and are shaped like sickles or crescent moons. These irregularly shaped cells can get stuck in small blood vessels, which can slow or block blood flow and oxygen to parts of the body.
Family Directed is able to find the caregivers in your area who know how to handle care recipients with Sickle Cell Anemia. A Family Directed caregiver can be there every step of the way to ensure the safety and comfort of you loved one.
When you use Family Directed to hire and manage caregivers, you have more control over the care being provided. You meet caregivers before you hire them. They also go through a seven year criminal background check. You can set an hourly rate that is fair to you and to the caregiver. Once you’ve found the right caregiver, our mobile app will help you understand when and how care is being provided. The Family Directed app will also let you schedule shifts, approve payments, and review care reports.

How Family Directed Home Care works for you

We provide families with the tools and knowledge to manage the entire care process on their own, creating a more affordable, transparent, and reliable method of care.
1

Our home care advisor gets you started

Tell us your needs, the schedule, and your budget. Our advisor will present profiles of local qualified caregivers that match your requirements.
2

Pick your own team

Get introduced to the caregivers you'd like to meet. We help connect you, coach you on how to interview, and ultimately take care of all the paperwork once you choose your caregiver.

Enjoy better care for less money

The hourly cost of care is negotiated by you and your caregiver, but don't worry each caregiver tells you a target hourly rate. You can use this rate as a starting place. Since there isn't a traditional home care agency involved - the total cost is much less. Working directly with a caregiver can eliminate up to 30% of the costs usually charged by an agency.
