3 Things Every Senior Care Service Should Provide
When you are preparing to hire a home health agency, you and your parent are responsible for setting up the services he or she needs. Ideally, you want to choose from a list of services that range from the very basic to the more comprehensive with room to grow in case your parent’s needs change or medical conditions worsen.
The following are 3 things every senior care service should provide:
- The opportunity to draw up a plan together. The senior care service provider should help you review your parent’s medical needs and listen carefully to preferences and desires. The plan should never be dictated as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ option – it should be customized to your senior’s needs.
- Trusted personal care services. When you hire a home care provider, you want to be sure that your senior is being treated with respect and kindness. The services they provide will typically include helping with daily tasks such as bathing and dressing, shopping for groceries, making meals, arranging for transportation, etc. In all cases, the care should be personal and make your senior feel comfortable.
- Room to grow as your senior’s needs change. Ideally, the senior care service provider will have the ability to support your senior’s needs as their needs change. If an illness causes further debilitation, for example, and the senior needs full-time care versus a few hours a day, you want a service that will ensure your service plan has room to grow.
