Sanford Health Help at Home

Home is a place of comfort and care where familiar sights and sounds bring a sense of peace.

That's why we offer Sanford Health Help at Home service for such needs as:

  • Long-term assistance with activities of daily living as one grows older and more frail
  • Short-term assistance following a medical procedure or accident
  • Assistance with infant care following childbirth
  • Assistance with at-home childcare after school

We, at Sanford Health Help at Home, understand these challenges and have made it our mission to help those who wish to remain at home, be home. All of our compassionate caregivers are trained and experienced as certified nursing assistants.

Sanford Health Help at Home caregivers can be with you or your loved one as little as one hour a week or up to 24 hours per day. Help is available even on nights, evenings, weekends and holidays.

We would love to share how Sanford Health Help at Home can help you or your loved one to remain safely and comfortably at home.

Call us at (701) 323-8400 for more information or a free consultation.

Frequently asked questions

Does insurance cover the care?

At the time of your initial consultation we make every effort to determine if any of the care requested can be covered by Medicare or your insurance. The services provided and described here are typically considered non-medical home care, however, and are paid for out-of-pocket (private-pay). However, some long-term care insurance plans may cover some non-medical services. If you have insurance that does cover the service, we take care of all paperwork.

How does the process work?

At Sanford Health Help at Home we start with an in-home assessment to evaluate your specific needs then work with you to develop an individualized plan to meet those needs. Should your needs increase during the time you are receiving our services, we will connect you with our home health and/or hospice services, both of which provide a higher level of care.

What does the caregiver do?

A caregiver visits your home, or the home of your loved one, and helps with activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping, personal hygiene or safety supervision. Our caregivers can also provide companionship, as well as respite care, to relieve family members who care for their loved ones on a regular basis.

Can you tell me more about the qualifications of the Help at Home caregivers?

Our caregivers are the heart of who we are. All of Sanford Health Help at Home caregivers are trained and experienced as certified nursing assistants in North Dakota. They are fully screened at the time of employment, including background checks and drug screens. All of our caregivers are also certified in CPR.

Are there a minimum number of hours required?

Not only does Sanford Health Help at Home provide the most highly qualified caregivers (all of them are certified nursing assistants)—we also provide flexible scheduling—you can request help for as little as one hour per week.

Is there any employment paperwork that must be completed for "hiring" a caregiver?

Because the Help at Home caregiver is an employee of Sanford Health, we take care of all employment paperwork, taxes, liability insurance and Workers' Compensation insurance. We also provide ongoing supervision and regular evaluations of staff.
