Choosing the Right Caregiver

When finding care for your aging loved-ones, it’s important to make sure the right person is caring for them. At Home Care Plus, we try to match our excellent caregivers with right seniors. There are a few things we look for when we make the decision, and you can use the same metrics to make sure our caregivers are right for you.

  1. The first thing you need to know is the kind of care your parent needs, and how often. Home care caregivers offer assistance with non-medical activities like bathing, cooking, transportation, or companionship. Create a list of specific activities your parent needs help with.
  2. Your finances may affect your caregiver options. Work out a budget for caregiving. Many nonprofit and governmental programs offer financial assistance for the care of the elderly as well.
  3. Many families use a home care agency because of the added security, accountability, and convenience. Consider factors such as how long the agency has been in business, their procedures for documenting and monitoring care, and how they train and hire caregivers.
  4. The final step to take before beginning your caregiver search is compiling your requirements. If possible, create a list together with your loved one who will be receiving care. Include preferences about the caregiver’s gender, age, availability, and more. Mark non-negotiables, like that the caregiver speak a particular language, or is okay with pets. It is important to make sure the caregiver can fulfill the needs of your loved one.
