Acting as a loved one's caregiver is an enormous task. Even the most dedicated family member can get worn down over time. Having professional assistance from a skilled dementia caregiver at Visiting Angels® Kansas City can help to bring relief to family caregivers. It also ensure that seniors with dementia receive consistently high-quality care and can continue living in the comfort and familiarly of their homes. If you've been looking for a dementia caregiver in Kansas City, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Lenexa, Leawood, Mission, or Shawnee, interviewing your prospects is a good place to start. 

Interviewing a Potential Dementia Caregiver in Kansas City

Interviewing a potential dementia caregiver is an important step in the home care process, because it lets you find out first-hand exactly what an agency can offer to your loved one, and how they plan to provide it. It also helps us to understand your unique situation so that we can personalize our approach to your loved one's dementia care, making it a better fit for both their needs, and their lifestyle. 

Some questions you may want to ask during your first meeting include:

  • What's their background in elderly care? 
  • Have they cared for seniors with dementia before?
  • Do they have any dementia-specific qualifications?
  • Are there any tasks which they are unwilling or unable to perform?
  • Are they able to assist with the preparation of nutritious meals?
  • Can they drive? Are they able to provide transportation?
  • Are their any periods during which they are unavailable?
  • How will they contact you if there's an emergency?
