It’s normal to feel overwhelmed when you realize a loved one needs in-home support to continue aging in place.

About Your Consultation on In-Home Care in St. Louis County

Not all seniors have the same needs or preferences. In order to provide care that suits our care recipients’ unique care requirements, we always start with an in-person consultation to determine the best plan for their care.

These meetings take place at the senior’s home and allow us to gain insight into their personal preferences and current lifestyle. We also use this time to answer the questions of concerned family members and address any special requests they have.

As part of this detailed discussion, we’ll touch on the following issues:

  • Physical care requirements. We’ll take note of any difficulties your loved one has with walking or mobility and will explain how a caregiver can assist with housekeeping activities, personal hygiene routines, and transportation to appointments.
  • Social and emotional needs. Our approach to care isn’t limited to physical assistance. We realize how important it is for seniors to have plenty of social interaction and emotional support, and will speak with your loved one about their favorite hobbies and social pastimes.
  • Scheduling and logistics. Finally, we’ll discuss your preferred schedule of care visits as well as logistical details such as home access for the caregiver.
