Evaluating Home Care Assistance Services in Georgetown

Non-medical home care services can provide you and your loved one with the best of both worlds. Your loved one can stay in a familiar, comfortable place – at home – while also gaining access to the helping hands and support needed throughout the day or night. Likewise, you and your family can find the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved one is safe. That said, not all home care assistance services in Georgetown, TX are created equal. So when evaluating your options, be sure to ask about the following:

The agency's background. Before selecting a home care assistance agency in Georgetown, perform your due diligence and ask about the number of years in the business, history, and experience, in addition to insurance and bonding.

The types of home care provided. Your loved one may simply need help with running errands and light housekeeping today. In the future, though, their needs can – and likely will – change. You don't want to have to switch agencies if this happens. That's why it's important to ensure the agency you choose has the comprehensive service offerings to meet your loved one's needs today and into the future.

How caregivers are recruited and hired. Expect the agency you choose to have a careful screening and vetting process in place. For instance, at Visiting Angels® Georgetown, we look to hire home care assistants who have a strong employment history in senior care. We also conduct thorough background and criminal history checks on each individual we hire.

What happens when there's not a fit with the caregiver. Sometimes a caregiver is assigned who isn't the right fit for your loved one. When this happens, you want to make sure you're able to get a replacement within a timely manner. 

The communication process you can expect. At Visiting Angels Georgetown, we know that in the world of home care assistance emergencies and new issues come up all the time. When they happen, you need to be able to get a hold of your home care agency quickly, even if it's the middle of the night. Likewise, throughout your relationship, you should expect regular communication and updates on your loved one and their situation.
