What Can I Expect


First Day 

I strive to provide the best care possible and will meet with the client and their family to create a personalized care plan specifically designed to meet the client's needs.

Safety is my first priority and I will perform a home assessment and suggest any adaptive devices to ensure client safety, comfort and well being. I will ask the primary caregiver about the client's limitations and perform a health assessment if appropriate.

What will happen:

As the owner of Caring Hands Maui the client is my first priority. Establishing a relationship of care, concern and trust is very important to me. I will ask about your hobbies, interests and set a care plan to include your goals, needs and how you prefer to have the necessary tasks performed in a timely manner.

Review your personalized Care Plan with the information you provided that is specific to your needs with you.

I will work with you to develop a task schedule based on your normal routine.

I will make a list of your food preferences. I will include the client and family and together we can create your favorite

recipes you would like included in your meal plans and be aware of any dietary restrictions.


Remember that part of your function is to stay active and involved. Together as a care team I will find ways for the client to be involved. You may find that sharing tasks, becoming involved in your own care makes you very happy, gives you a sense of empowerment and  a sense of purpose. I strive to promote independence as much as possible.


I will invoice  weekly once you are on our regular billing cycle. On the invoice on the bottom right you will see

your total charges for services. You can make payment by check or cash. I accept private pay and long term care insurance.


I will make time for the primary care giver to ensure the care plan is meeting your expectations. This is your private time with me to look through the care plan for any updates or information. If you have any concerns, questions or need some resources, this is a great opportunity for you.


When statutory holidays come up, you will receive a call to confirm whether you would like service or not. You have the choice to have service (at 1.5 times the rate), choose an alternate day during the week or cancel service on that day. If you have plans to go away on holidays or have family visit, please call  me and let me know as soon as you are able.


 It is our mission at Caring Hands Maui to provide professionally qualified and compassionate nursing care while maintaining your privacy, dignity, and independence at home.
