A consultation with Visiting Angels East Bernard can offer you an opportunity to learn about our services. A care coordinator will come to your home and answer your questions. Plus, the coordinator will learn about your specific care needs. Your free consultation will provide expert guidance to help you navigate the decision-making process.
How to Prepare for Your In-Home Consultation
Let your loved one know you are considering hiring a professional in-home caregiver. Making this decision can be a sensitive, emotionally charged issue and may be met with objections. If your loved one resists the idea, listen to their opinions and concerns. Emphasize that their health and well-being are your top priorities.
Also, think about your specific care needs. What time of day does he or she typically need assistance? What tasks are the most challenging? Review your financial situation in advance, so you know how much to budget for in-home senior care. Bring a list of questions and concerns to cover during the consultation.
What Will be Discussed?
Our in-home caregivers are skilled at putting seniors and family caregivers at ease, especially when discussing sensitive issues like personal hygiene.
Topics we often cover include:
- Personal Care: meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, errands and transportation to appointments, mobility assistance, medication reminders and personal hygiene (bathing, dressing, toileting)
- Social Care: teaching seniors how to use modern technology such as email, search engines and video chat programs to stay in touch with friends and family
- Dementia Care: help for seniors living with dementia, including assistance with fall prevention, wandering prevention and sundowner’s syndrome
Our in-home consultations include complimentary home safety and fall-risk assessments. We’ll examine your loved one’s specific safety needs. Your care coordinator will answer your questions about caregiver qualifications, safety, oversight, emergency procedures and other concerns.
Create Your Unique Care Plan
Your care coordinator will develop a comprehensive care plan tailored to your loved one’s unique needs. The plan will include a schedule and a description of specific activities and tasks that require caregiver assistance. Your care coordinator will then match your loved one with a compatible in-home caregiver. With our Select Your Caregiver program, you can be sure of a great fit. Although, if you believe the fit is not quite right, you can request a different in-home caregiver at any time, for any reason.
When Can Care Begin?
At Visiting Angels East Bernard, our caregivers can typically begin providing services within 48 hours of the initial consultation. In some cases, services can start the same day.
