Getting started with in-home health care services for seniors in Edgewater, Crofton and Bowie, MD is easy with Visiting Angels

Providing care for your elderly parents can be challenging but you can always get help by hiring professional in-home caregivers. Professional caregivers from Visiting Angels Edgewater can give you peace of mind because they have training and experience to care for your loved one. But before you hire a caregiver, it is important that you do due diligence so that you can find the right one to provide the in-home health care services your loved one needs.

Set A Meeting with a Care Coordinator from Visiting Angels Edgewater

One of the challenges of finding a caregiver is that there are so many facilities that can supply you with caregivers. But here at Visiting Angels, we always encourage you to meet with a care coordinator first. Our care coordinators will give you a preview of what types of services we offer. The meeting will give you the opportunity to ask questions especially if you have requests and concerns that you want to rise to the coordinator. The meeting will also provide us with the best opportunity to get to know you as a potential client. We understand that you might feel overwhelmed by the process of selecting caregivers, so we can give you a recommendation based on what works for you.

Ask the Right Questions About In-Home Health Care Services

During the meeting, it is important that you ask the right questions. By asking the right questions, you will be able to determine if our in-home care services are the right solution for your loved one. But in reality, people don’t get to look for caregivers every day. But to help you with your search, below are some questions that you can ask our care coordinator:

  • What assistance do you provide to clients who have problems with grooming, bathing, dressing, mobility or incontinence?
  • How do they handle patients with specific emotional needs? Do they provide companionship, social interaction or conversation?
  • Can they provide specific assistance related to housekeeping, groceries, meal preparation and laundry?
  • How do they handle logistics and scheduling especially if there are changes?
  • Can you provide a customized care plan or arrange for a nurse visit?

These are some of the questions that you need to ask so that you can find the right caregiver for your loved ones. A little due diligence can go a long way.
