How Should I Prepare for My Consultation?
Before your consultation, let your loved one know that you are considering hiring a professional caregiver. The decision to begin professional care can be a sensitive, emotionally charged issue which may be met with objections. If your loved one resists the idea, listen to their concerns, but emphasize that their health and well-being are your top priorities.
For the assessment, be sure to consider the following questions:
- What time of day does your loved one typically need assistance?
- What tasks are the most challenging?
- Is there a chronic illness such as Alzheimer’s disease that requires specific services?
- How much money is in your budget for care?
It is also a good idea to bring a list of questions to ask during the consultation.
