What to Look for in a Home Care Provider

Senior care services can provide a more comfortable way to receive the medical and wellness services that you or your loved one need. Here are a few things to look for:

Caregivers

Just as you get along with your regular physician, you want to bond with your in-home care provider as well. Because this relationship is often much more personal due to the close proximity you'll be with this person, it's important to find a match. 

Experience

Although you don't necessarily need a person who has 20-plus years of experience dealing exclusively with your condition, it is important to know what type of training  and certifications they undergo before taking over at home duties.

Services Offered

Not every in-home elder care agency offers the same services, so it's important to shop around for the right fit for your needs and schedule. At the very least, have one family member help you in this process, and be sure to ask about the four W's:

  • Who will be providing care
  • Who to contact with any questions
  • What you can expect from your caregiver
  • Why should you choose the home care company
