SELECTING HOME CARE PROVIDERS
Today, more of us are choosing to stay home as we age. Searching for a home care provider is a daunting and overwhelming task. You may have already taken the most important step in recognizing that you need a little bit of help. Now, this does not mean you are losing your independence, by any means. Different moments in our lives, in various aspects of everyday life, call for some support or need to hire an expert. From hiring babysitters to hiring gardeners, office assistants to interns, and realtors to financial planners, its only natural at this stage in life that you’ll need that helping hand in selecting a home care provider.
The next question you may ask yourself is “How and where do I start my search?” Your greatest referral system may contain the people around you. These are trusted associates you surround yourself with and will have your best interest in mind. Recommendations from family & friends, doctors, nurses, your church congregation, and your local community centers are the best. You then put your list together and start your research on recommended agencies to see who fits your needs. Before calling to schedule in-person meetings, it’s important to know exactly what you’re looking for. Below are some questions to help you get started.
It’s also important to have questions ready for your potential home care provider. Below are a few recommended questions for the interviews.
