When it comes to home healthcare many adults find themselves overwhelmed when their aging parents require help to function on a daily basis.
Home Healthcare is a flexible and often more affordable alternative to a nursing home or assisted living facility. Think about it, why wouldn't Mom or Dad want to stay in their own home. Wouldn't you?
When you are checking home healthcare for yourself, your Mom or Dad, or others that you love dearly, a few steps can be important. Check the qualifications, certifications, and licenses required to provide home healthcare services in your area.
There are three important things to consider when choosing your home healthcare service. They are as follows:
1. It is important to understand that emergencies are not planned. They can happen at any time. Always ask if the home healthcare agency staff has a skilled nursing supervisor available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
2. Always inquire how the home healthcare caregivers are screened and hired for employment with the agency. Also ask what training their employees receive on an ongoing basis.
3. As if their home healthcare agency have any online reviews or testimonials they could direct you to.
There is much more that you should request as well. Does the home healthcare agency provide bathing services? Can they provide you doctor call if you are not ambulatory? Do they provide any cleaning services? We strongly urge you to consider only those home healthcare provides that can offer such service and have the needed certifications and state licenses to do so.

I like that you talked about asking for bathing services. I know the difficulty the elderly can have getting in and out of the bath. I help my mother all the time, so this is very important.

My grandparents are having a hard time moving around their home because of their knee surgery. It was explained here that emergency situations are not planned and have staff that is prepared any time of the day. Furthermore, it's recommended to hire professionals for quality home care.

I like what you said about verifying if the home care agency that you are considering has a skilled nursing supervisor that can come to your aid 24/7. My aunt's health has deteriorated since last year. It is not safe for her to live alone anymore, so we will be sure to go look for companies that can offer round the clock emergency support.
12/5/2018 12:05:17 pm
I agree that you should make sure the home healthcare agency you choose has a nursing supervisor who is available 24 hours a day. You never know when an emergency might occur, like you said. You need to make sure your loved one is always taken care of.

Thanks for the tip to ask a home healthcare agency what type of ongoing training they receive. My grandma isn't doing too well and has a harder time doing simple things, so I'm looking for care that we can get her. I'll have to call a few agencies to ask about how they train their employees and if they continue to be trained so they'll be up to date on the latest care techniques.

I'm glad I read your article because now I know what kinds of questions to ask as we talk to potential care agencies.

I agree that you should make sure the staff that will care for your loved one are available 24/7. Emergencies can happen at any time, so it's important to me that my grandma is taken care of at all times so that I know she's safe. I would hate if she were to need help and be unable to get it until someone was ready to give it to her.

You made a point when you said that no emergencies are planned, and that means that my father has to receive the best healthcare at home if it's possible. I think I'll ask a service if they have skilled staff that I can employ so that I can be sure that he's well taken care of. That way, if he faces a medical emergency and I'm not home, someone will be there to help him.

Last month, my friend's grandma fell and broke her hip. Her family is now very worried about her living at home by herself. It's great that you explain that it can help to read reviews for potential home healthcare agencies.

My aunt has been thinking about getting the right kind of healthcare for her family in order to be more effective. She would really like to get some help from a professional in order to be a lot better. I liked what you said about how their employees should have the right kind of training, and screening they go through.

I totally agree when you said that when you are checking home healthcare for yourself, your Mom or Dad, or others that you love dearly, a few steps can be important. With that in mind, it would really be best if we hire home care services instead to take care of my grandmother. She is not able to walk anymore and has vision issues, so it would be best if she has a professional assisting her while staying in the comfort of our home.
