How to Find the Right Caregiver for You
Home care is often a service that older adults and their families turn to in a crisis, but it can also enhance the quality of life for you and your loved ones to help prevent a crisis. To get the most out of your home care experience, consider the following tips:
- Find the right match. During Family & Nursing Care’s screening and evaluation process, we specifically qualify each Caregiver in areas in which your loved ones are most likely to need assistance. For example, more than 90% of Caregivers we accept have an expertise in Alzheimer’s care and proper lifting techniques, and we can likely match any other need you have as well.
- Tell us everything. We want to know about your loved one’s physical health as well as their hobbies, past, personality, likes, and dislikes. For example, if your loved one is a foodie, request a Caregiver who loves to cook and experiment with recipes. If they love to be out in nature, ask for a Caregiver who would enjoy accompanying him or her to the park as often as possible.
- Create more quality time. Let us help you go back to being your loved one’s companion rather than their caretaker. From errands to light housekeeping, there are countless tasks with which your Caregiver can help. Take advantage of the additional support you now have! No one expects you to do it all, and when you use the services of a reputable home care agency, like Family & Nursing Care, you don’t have to.
