High-Quality At-Home Elder Care Plans
Age at home in Orange County, CA, with Comfort Keepers elder care compassionate support
Exploring options in senior at-home care can be a daunting task for the uninitiated. First, you need to work out what type of care you or a loved one needs and how often. Then there's the task of finding a dependable and experienced caregiver to work with. This short piece looks at elder care solutions for seniors who live in and around Buena Park, CA.
Where you source a qualified caregiver from will depend on the way you want to manage. For example, do you want an agency to match the ideal caregiver with your situation? In this case the agency is in effect the caregiver's employer and thus takes care of all those behind the scenes details.
Comfort Keepers of Buena Park, CA, don't just match caregivers with clients. We also help to tailor plans so that our services meet the "specific" needs of those we care for. Independently sourcing caregivers appeal to some people but there's more to it than first meets the eye.
Independent Elder Care Support
Word-by-mouth is often a good way to find a dependable caregiver but there are still things to think about. For example, does this person provide the kind of at-home support you need? Do they live locally or would they have a long commute to reach you? You also need to understand that you'd be their employer. That means taking responsibility for employer/employee related matters.
Consider registries if word-by-mouth isn't an option and you still want to find your own caregiver. Registries build and maintain databases that list qualified caregivers, their availability, and other work-related details. In most cases, you're still responsible as the employer so make sure you understand all the T&Cs before using registries.
