Before you sign up with a home care agency, make sure you know what kind of services your loved one needs and how they will be addressed. Home health care can include skilled care services from a licensed nurse or therapist, custodial services (such as cooking and cleaning), and/or personal care services (such as feeding or bathing). Below is a list of questions to ask when interviewing a home care agency. Remember, you are hiring the agency and the quality of care is directly related to the quality of their systems and processes.
Once you have compiled the answers to these and other questions you may have from several caregiver agencies, visit the agencies and meet administration and caregivers to form your overall impressions and finalize your decision.
