Choosing a dementia care professional to look after a loved one is a big step for your family. Knowing a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia is receiving experienced care can take a weight off your shoulders. Families in San Dimas, La Verne, Covina, and the surrounding areas trust the caregivers from Visiting Angels® Glendora.

So, how do you go about finding a provider who can meet your loved one's unique needs? When starting the search for quality dementia care, be sure to ask the following questions when interviewing home care agencies:

  • Do you have experience working with seniors who have memory related illness?
  • Do you have experience in all aspects of dementia care including hygiene assistance?
  • Is a comprehensive background check or other screening completed prior to hiring your caregivers?
  • Do caregivers have special dementia care education or training?
  • Do caregivers own a car and have valid insurance and a drivers license?
  • What are your scheduling limitations? Can care be arranged at all times of day?
  • Is there flexibility in scheduling if my loved one needs additional care?
  • What system do you use to provide communication and updates on my loved one's care?
  • How are emergency situations handled while my loved one is in your care?
  • Do you have after hours support available if there is an emergency and I need to reach a member of the office staff?
