When looking back on the impact Steve Jobs made, we see a number of amazing products on the market that have greatly impacted our daily lives. When I have run into trouble, be it product malfunction or user ignorance, I consistently return to the Mac support system. I do this for one reason: No one knows how to utilize a Mac product better than a Mac employee.  Why? Specified training.

This leads me to then broaden the scope of this idea to senior care. When looking for a good caregiver, it is important to find a candidate who is specifically trained to work in your loved one’s home. The senior care community has inappropriately placed Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing caregivers in the private residences of those who desire to stay at home. This sets both the client and caregiver up for failure.  Caregivers who have worked in Long Term Care have a support system in that facility. There is a plethora of other staff that they rely on to provide other services beyond the basic dressing, bathing and grooming for which the caregiver is responsible. These caregivers have developed an incredible skill set in this area, but for the most part, their knowledge is limited to assisting with those basic needs.  So, when a caregiver with this skill set is placed in a home setting, they have not been trained or developed the skills to then assist with more general household tasks like meal preparation, wardrobe selection, proper transportation techniques and home repairs.

Mom’s Best Friend has recognized this problem and addresses the issue with an intensive training program. We provide a 40 hour online training program and an in house training program. The 40 hour online training addresses general concepts like home/environmental safety, good mobility, promoting independence, the aging process, cultural differences and nutrition/hydration. The in house training extends to luxury level care. This training includes: executive transportation, fine meal preparation and meal service, home revitalization, pet care, concierge engagement and administrative assistance.

When Mom’s Best Friend caregivers complete our training program, they build on previous job experience and skills to develop into someone you can rely on heavily as a family.  If you are looking for a caregiver or assistant to ensure the safety and happiness of your aging loved one, give us a call at 972-446-0500 x 224.

Michelle hung up the phone in disappointment. This was the third time in a row she had to cancel date night due to sitter problems. Sitting down at the table, Michelle raced through her options only to come to a dead end. She picked up the phone to cancel the reservations when she remembered her friend Amy's advice. Amy told her how a unique local agency had come to their rescue when they were in a bind. She sent Amy a quick text, "What's the name of the agency you use?" A response came quickly and read, "Mom's Best Friend."

Does the scenario above sound familiar? If so, keep reading! 

Mom's Best Friend is a household staffing agency that serves families in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. MBF recruits and staffs polished candidates who have mastered in home childcare. They expedite the staffing of skilled temporary nannies for Moms in need. The booking process is a cinch. Clients simply email or text their request to Lauryn Everett, MBF’s Temporary Placement Director ( Lauryn secures the caregiver and books the job as soon as possible. Once the nanny is booked, the client receives a confirmation email as well as the nanny's profile, which includes her education and childcare history. Mom's Best Friend also makes it possible for a family to request their preferred caregivers.

Lauryn has been with Mom's Best Friend since October 2009. She is a graduate of Christ for the Nations and has worked with children and families for over 10 years. Before joining the agency, Lauryn worked as a nanny for a variety of families. This experience gives her a solid understanding of the needs of MBF clients. She strives to ensure the booking process is as seamless as possible. Lauryn also interviews and trains each candidate before they are booked with an MBF client. Lauryn has an eye for finding caregivers of great character and professionalism to serve under the MBF brand. Her goal is to match each family with a caregiver whose personality and skill set will blend perfectly with their goals and unique needs. 

During the holidays Mom's Best Friend also provides clients with personal assistants. We fondly refer to these assistants as "holiday elfs".

A holiday elf helps a client prepare for the holidays by running last minute errands, wrapping gifts and even organizing for parties. This assistance helps our clients accomplish the many things on their "to-do lists" as well as allowing them time to enjoy their family during such a busy season.
