Criteria When Looking for In-Home Care for Seniors
When looking for quality home care for a senior loved one, the first thing you’ll want to look for is a reputable home care agency. When you look into specific home care agencies in Manhattan, you should ask some of the following questions:
Are you licensed, insured or bonded?
What specific services do you provide?
Are you on call 24/7 for emergencies?
Do you conduct background checks?
What is included in a care plan?
What training do you provide your caregivers?
Can you initiate services quickly?
The next thing to look for in senior home care is a caregiver that has the proper certifications. This is an important matter since it ensures that the caregiver has met state-approved standards and requirements. It also provides you with a level of safety, knowing that the caregiver is competent enough to handle the job. This certification can be obtained by attending a New York State-approved home health aide training program. It is also helpful to know if the caregiver has additional certifications, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease specialization.
You should next look at the level of care that your loved one needs. Do they need daily assistance with getting dressed and bathing, or are they still able to complete these tasks on their own? If they need daily help, you may need to hire a caregiver to provide 24-hour home care services. If they don’t need frequent assistance, you can hire a caregiver to help for just a few hours a day. No matter your situation, Comfort Keepers in Manhattan can accommodate the needs of you and you're senior loved one.
