The two main considerations are:
- Types of at-home care
- Sourcing suitable home care providers
Aging In Place — The Preferred Option
Living at home is the preferred option for most US seniors and that includes the good folks of Jacksonville. Unlike a generation ago, many older adults get to age at home even when they lose a little physical or cognitive ability. Your local Comfort Keepers serves the local senior community and their families to make this possible.
Our non-medical elder care services include, but are not restricted to, the following:
- General Caregiving: Domestic in nature, e.g. cleaning, errands, laundry, housework, etc.
- Personal Caregiving: Bathing, grooming, toileting, mobility assistance, etc.
- Specialized Caregiving: Around-the-clock care and dementia care, as two examples
- Miscellaneous caregiving: Anything that doesn't fit into the above, transportation, for example
Every case is unique so we tailor all plans to meet the exact needs of those we care for. The other thing to consider is whether you want to find your own caregiver or leave it to a reputable agency.
Sourcing Elder Care Services
To source your own caregiver means you become their direct employer. There are many responsibilities that come with that like hiring and firing, employment taxes, deductions, and so on. It's possible to find your own caregivers through local ads, word by mouth, and via registries. The other option is to use an employment-based caregiver agency.
An agency is in effect the caregiver's employer. That means they take care of all administrative matters and behind-the-scenes details. There are pros and cons to each approach.
