FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Making a decision about care for a loved one is never easy. To be comfortable with your options, you need answers. We hope the following information is a good start. If your questions aren't completely answered, please feel free to call us.

What kind of services do you provide?

Lynden Nursing Service is a state licensed nurse registry. We refer rigorously screened and credential verified caregivers to area families.

Lynden Nursing Service understands that there is no place like home; therefore, we are committed to unsurpassed personalized service to clients. Lynden Nursing Service refers caregivers who offer a broad array of services based on  a client’s individual requests and preferences. We can refer Certified Nurses Assistants (CNA), Home Health Aides (HHA), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPN), Registered Nurses (RN), Companions and Sitters in home or facility based throughout the Broward, Palm Beach, St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin and Okeechobee Counties.

Are the caregivers we refer screened and insured?

Yes. To help ensure the safety and the well-being of the clients, before we refer a caregiver, we verify their FBI level-2 criminal history background clearance which requires finger printing, and each caregiver has to have the necessary credentials and  Professional Liability Insurance.

Will I have a choice of who comes to my home?

Yes. You and your loved one are in control of the decision-making process. And with our proprietary screening and selection system, you can rest assured that we do our best to take the guesswork out of identifying and referring the right caregiver to you and your family. However, you must be satisfied. We always try to accommodate any requests you may have for referrals of additional caregivers (as allowed by law). 
Our goal is to establish a long-term relationship with your loved one. Should your family want to request a referral of another caregiver for any reason, we'll search for a match until your family is happy. If your family requires referrals of multiple caregivers, our goal is the same: we want you to be satisfied and happy. We'll do what it takes to make sure we achieve that goal. We understand that a strong rapport and trust with a caregiver is vital to a successful home care experience.

What are the costs of obtaining a caregiver through your referral services?

The cost for every family we serve varies based principally on the skill level of the caregiver you request, but each caregiver we represent sets their own rate.  Please contact us for more information.

How do I determine the services my loved one receives?

Working with a caregiver referred by Lynden Nursing, you and your family will determine the schedule that is best for your situation. The caregivers we refer can provide service to your family a few hours each week or around the clock 24/7. We also refer live-in caregivers as an affordable option.

We also understand the care situation can quickly change. That is why we strive to only refer caregivers whose background and experience indicate that they can adapt to changing situations. You and your caregiver will be able to make changes to those services whenever it's necessary. Plus, you're never bound to a long-term contract.

Do you accept Medicaid or Medicare?

No, we do not.

Lynden Nursing Service seems like a good choice. What's the next step?

Give us a call at 800-403.5838.

Together, we'll go over the type of caregiver that best meets your family requests and preferences. We'll answer all of your questions regarding services and costs. Then, we'll begin identifying potential caregivers that we believe will be the right fit for your loved one. Care can begin immediately.
