Our Home Care Agency Can Get You the Help You Need

Are you worried about a loved one's failing health? Has someone you love suffered a recent injury or illness that's diminished their abilities?

It can be a difficult decision to place a family member in long-term care or an assisted living facility. Home care services may be the best alternative for providing the personal and medical care that they need.

At MediQuest Staffing & Homecare, we specialize in providing home care services throughout Lancaster County, PA, from qualified healthcare providers you can trust! All of our caregivers are licensed, bonded, insured, and covered by malpractice, workers' compensation, and liability insurance.

MediQuest Staffing and Homecare is pleased to announce that we are joining Visiting Angels of Lancaster. MediQuest Staffing will continue to retain our name. However, our homecare division will now be part of Visiting Angels. We will have a much larger pool of employees in order to be able to serve our homecare clients.

We will have expanded employment opportunities and our clients and the facilities we help staff will continue to receive the same excellent RNs, LPNs and CNAs.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How are caregivers paid?

MediQuest employs and pays all of our caregivers. You will receive weekly invoices via mail or email for services provided. There is no exchange of money between you and your caregiver. We handle all payroll matters, which means you won't need to worry about taxes, social security or insurance issues.

Can you bill my insurance company?

Yes, we participate with long term care insurance companies and bill them directly.

Can I receive Medicare services through MediQuest?

No, MediQuest does not participate with Medicare. However, we can follow clients once Medicare no longer covers services. Medicare-certified agencies will frequently identify that the client needs additional assistance not covered and will reach out to us to supplement care to these individuals.

What if I want to change the hours after I start service?

Simply call the office, and we will adjust your hours to better meet your needs.

How do you choose my caregiver?

MediQuest carefully chooses your caregiver based on the skills needed for your care, personality, distance caregiver must travel, and other criteria clients may determine.

What if I want to change caregivers?

We make our best effort to match our caregivers to your needs. However, if you wish to make a change, simply call the office, and we will find another caregiver.

What if I have a question after regular business hours?

You can reach us 24 hours a day, every day. After regular business hours, our answering service will put you through to our on-call coordinator.
