Home Care services provide valuable support to seniors who wish to “age in place” as well as to their families. Subject to the individual needs of the client, home care aides can be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Selecting a home care agency requires gathering some important information. There are a number of important questions to ask to ensure the client is getting the best care possible. Are they a licensed agency? How long have they been in business? How does the agency screen its employees? What services does the agency supply, what are the fees, and do they accept your long term care insurance? Determining which home care agency is the best “fit” for the senior client will make transition easier and the results more satisfactory.
