When researching care options for an elderly parent or loved one, you have likely come across home care. This is an excellent care option as it allows your senior loved one to age at home while making sure they receive the care and support they need to age well. However, it can be challenging to find a suitable provider.
Here, we discuss the factors you should consider when choosing a home health agency in California:
- Available Services
Different home health agencies offer various services. Hence, consider your senior loved one’s needs and make sure the provider can meet those needs. Some home health agencies offer in-home support like ADL assistance, home health medical services, and in-home dialysis to provide comprehensive care.
- Customizable Care Plans
Find a home health provider that offers personalized care plans. The care plan should offer the services you need. Speak to your loved one’s primary care provider to determine which services are non-negotiable. For instance, your loved one may require dialysis, physical therapy, or IV therapy to maintain their health.
- Approachable and Friendly Staff
The way a home health provider’s staff communicates is indicative of how they will communicate with you and your loved one once you hire them for the job. Considering your family and senior loved one will spend a lot of time with them at home, it is essential to find friendly and approachable staff that you can depend on.
