What Gets Discussed During a Senior Care Consultation?
Hiring a professional caregiver is a life-changing decision that you and your family must make together. It's normal for senior loved ones to have one idea of what they want, while their families have a completely different one. With the assistance of our staff at Visiting Angels Fort Smith, you can create a care plan for your loved one that is tailored to their specific requirements and offers you and your family some much-needed peace of mind.
Our goal is to make you and your loved one more comfortable with the idea of professional home care, so we can answer any questions you have about our services or company. If you're still on the fence about hiring us, we'd be happy to show you how our other clients in Fort Smith and the surrounding area have benefited from our senior care services.
Here's what we often discuss with families during the initial in-home consultation:
- Why you decided to seek in-home senior care for your loved one
- What you are looking for in a home care company
- What level of care your loved one needs
- Your loved one's medication, meal, and sleep schedules
- How we can support your loved one emotionally
- Your preferred care schedule including days and times
- Your budget
How We Help Families Find the Right Caregiver
Your loved one's quality of life may be enhanced and their general well-being can be increased by finding the perfect caregiver for them. Our in-home caregivers are a vital part of the Visiting Angels Fort Smith team, and we value everything they do to ensure our clients' well-being.
We will assist you in locating a suitable caregiver for your loved one during the in-home consultation. Our home care agency has a staff of experienced senior care professionals from which we will choose a caregiver based on your loved one's needs, schedule, and personality. However, ultimately, it will be up to your loved one to decide which caregiver they would choose to work with.
Our Angels are able to build meaningful relationships with their patients as a result, which in turn improves the quality of care they are able to deliver. In case things don't go as planned, you have the option of switching to a different caregiver.
What if I Live Outside of the Fort Smith Area?
