If your loved one can no longer care for themselves without assistance, but don’t want to leave the comfort of their home, care at home is a great fit. However, finding care you can trust can be an overwhelming and sometimes stressful process. Conducting interviews with senior care providers in the Delray Beach area can help you make an informed and confident choice.

Selecting An Experienced Senior Care Provider in Delray Beach

At Visiting Angels® Delray Beach, we recommend scheduling your appointments and then making a list of questions to ask each provider. This will streamline the process and also make each interview as productive as possible. 

Along with questions specific to your loved one’s circumstances, we suggest asking the following:

  1. Are you licensed, bonded, and insured in the state of Florida?

  2. Are you locally owned and operated?

  3. What services can you provide?

  4. Can your services be tailored to my loved one’s needs?

  5. When are your caregivers available? 

  6. Is care available on holidays, weekends, and overnight?

  7. How do you handle changes in schedule and emergency needs?

  8. What skills, experience, and certifications do your caregivers have?

  9. Do you include the patient and family when developing a care plan?

  10. How will my loved one’s caregiver be chosen?
