Thinking about home care!

Thinking about home care!

When you loved one are struggling to keep up with the activities of daily leaving, forget to take their medications or go to their Doctors appointments. Are you seeing that your loved ones need home care as they age? Have you thought about a nursing home or assisted living facility but want to keep them in their home for as long as possible? could be as simple as bringing in someone to provide in-home care for a couple of hours a day. Start by asking your loved ones (and yourself) the following questions:

  • What days and times, and in what situations, might you need help?

  • How much money is available to pay for outside resources?

Questions to ask any home care agency

If you decide to go through an agency, use the questions at the Eldercare Locator (eldercare.gov) to screen and vet the agency. Then, use the following questions to interview the candidates they suggest and/or you find on your own:

  • Can you provide me with your full name, address, phone number, current photo ID and Social Security number so that I can run a background – including credit – check? (If you’re interviewing an agency candidate, request contact information only.)

  • Can you (your agency) provide me with copies of current documentation related to personal insurance, bonding, workers compensation, and your current health status (TB test, immunizations, etc.)?

  • Can you (your agency) provide me with current documentation related to specific services (dementia care, CPR, etc.) you are trained/certified to provide?

  • Can you (your agency) provide me with references related to past clients and employers.

  • How long have you been providing care?

  • Why did you leave your last position?

  • What are your expectations if I hire you?

  • What hours and days will you be available?

  • What hourly rate do you expect, and how do you expect to be paid?

  • How do you like to get feed-back and suggestions?

  • What do you like and dislike about home care?
