When you hire in-home care for a loved one, it’s important you have full confidence in the caregiver who is provided. Your local Visiting Angels makes this process more personalized by offering a program that allows families to have an important role in choosing their caregivers. This specialized program can play a big part in making your loved one’s care a success.
“At Visiting Angels, we know that any successful care plan comes down to finding the right caregiver for every client,” says our President and CEO Larry Meigs. “With Select Your Caregiver, we’ve made sure that you can find the right care provider for your loved one.”
We’ve detailed below how the program works, the benefits it can offer, and how you can get started with care from your local Visiting Angels.
How Select Your Caregiver Works
The program starts with a home care assessment, which is performed in your loved one’s residence. This is a chance for your local Visiting Angels care director to meet with you and your loved one. The assessment allows the director to learn about your needs and start formulating an effective care plan.
Based on this assessment, your local Visiting Angels will find a caregiver (or caregivers) whose skills, experience, and personality are aligned with your requests. If — for any reason — you feel the caregiver isn’t quite the right match, just let us know. We’ll recommend a different person for you.
Benefits of Choosing Your Caregiver
With our years of experience in the home care industry, the team at Visiting Angels knows how important the relationship is for families and their caregivers. By allowing family members to choose their caregivers, we help ensure the perfect fit is there from the outset. Through the program, you’ll be able to select a care provider who has:
- Skills and past experience that aligns with your loved one’s needs
- Availability that matches with your loved one’s schedule and routines
- An approach to care that fits with your loved one’s personality
