Get the Most Out of an In-Home Care Consultation with Visiting Angels McKinney
When considering senior care options for your loved one in Collin County, TX, you probably have a lot of questions. How much will it cost? What qualifications should I look for? Is in-home care the best choice? It can be overwhelming.
An in-home consultation with Visiting Angels McKinney can provide an opportunity to learn about our services. A care coordinator will come to your home and answer your questions. Plus, the coordinator will learn about your specific care needs. Your free consultation will provide expert guidance to help you navigate the decision-making process.
How to Prepare for You In-Home Consultation
Let your loved one know you are considering hiring a professional in-home caregiver. The decision to look into senior care options can be a sensitive, emotionally charged issue and may be met with objections. If your loved one resists the idea, listen to their opinions and concerns. Emphasize that their health and well-being are your top priorities.
Also, think about specific care needs. What time of day does he or she typically need assistance? What tasks are the most challenging? Review your financial situation in advance, so you know how much to budget for in-home care. Finally, bring a list of questions and concerns to cover during the consultation.
What We Commonly Discuss During Consultations
Our caregivers at Visiting Angels McKinney are skilled at putting seniors and family caregivers at ease, especially when discussing sensitive issues like personal hygiene. Topics might include:
- Personal Care: Meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, errands and transportation to appointments, mobility assistance, medication reminders and personal hygiene (bathing, dressing, toileting)
- Memory Care: Help with seniors living with dementia, including assistance with fall prevention, wandering prevention and managing symptoms of Sundowner’s Syndrome
- Social Care: Helping seniors use modern technology such as email, search engines and video chat programs to stay in touch with friends and family
Our in-home consultations include complimentary home safety and fall-risk assessments. We’ll examine your loved one’s specific safety needs. Your care coordinator will answer your questions about caregiver qualifications, safety, oversight, emergency procedures and other concerns.
Creating Your Care Plan
With your input, your care coordinator will develop a comprehensive care plan tailored to your loved one’s unique needs. The plan will include a schedule and a description of specific activities and tasks that require caregiver assistance. Your care coordinator will then match your loved one with a compatible caregiver. With our Select Your Caregiver program, you can be sure of a great fit. Although, if you believe the fit is not quite right, you can request a different caregiver at any time, for any reason.
