Independence Assistance is a Personal Service Agency that provides at-home care for individuals with needs stemming from disability or aging to keep them safe and independent at home.
Our agency started in Lexington, Kentucky in 2012 and we are committed to helping our clients remain independent at home in the Bluegrass. We work in 19 different counties throughout Central Kentucky and we are dedicated to helping individuals and families. Our personal care services range from housekeeping, personal care, escort/transportation services, medication reminders, shopping, respite/companionship, and memory care.
We carefully select only the best employees who have the caring, desire, training, and commitment to help our clients. We screen our employees with background checks, drug screening, and training. To ensure the protection of clients, we are fully insured and bonded. We also lead the area in wages for care assistant work. Our Care Assistants help our clients have an essence of independence and calm in otherwise very trying times. We want to help others stay independent at home for as long as possible.
The health and vitality of our clients and staff is of utmost importance! Each workday, a daily Well For Work evaluation is distributed to all staff as a monitored well check. Symptoms, exposure risks, and temperature spikes are all individually reported to the office and recorded so as to maintain the highest standard of health prevention.
All CDC guidelines are followed in handling any potential exposure to COVID and we are vigilant with precautionary measures. All of our aides are required to wear PPE at all times and we supply and distribute them to our staff at no cost. Hand sanitizer, alcohol, gloves, masks, booties, scrubs and gowns are all made available to all staff members for use on shifts with clients. Health Departments from Fayette and surrounding counties also guide our wellness practices and have influenced our company policies should testing for COVID be necessary, or should tests be found to be positive.
