Premcare – The Premium Difference
What is PremCare? What does that mean? Why does it matter to me? PremCare is a proprietary program that allows our agency to assure that we are staffing the right people, with the right training and experience, at the right time, for the right reason. PremCare is an in-depth employment screening and training program that allows you to experience the premium care that our team provides for you and your family. Just a few highlights of what PremCare certified really means. Each team member must undergo a minimum of 6 hours of orientation and onsite training followed by a minimum of 12 hours of inservice training per year. Each staff will complete preemployment screenings including: statewide criminal background check, multi-panel drug screening, annual TB screening, E-Verify, Alabama Nurse Aide and National Sex Offender Registry check, fingerprinting, as well as application and reference checks.
Before beginning care, the client will receive an assessment by a care coordinator to establish a plan of care that will be unqiue to every client and will allow our team to better provide that premium care, after all, communication is key. At this point, clients and their families will receive a username and password to access their client portal from our website in which they can see their care calendar in real time, and also allows them to simply request any changes. These are just a few things that make As Close As Family a Premium In Home Care agency, and allows us to best serve our clients and their families. We would love the opportunity to share more with you and your family about the PremCare difference, and how we can be there for you.

We have been there and we understand. Proper nutrition is invaluable. Let the ACAF team be your personal chef. Learn More »
