If you are in the process of screening home care agencies for a loved one, there are many things to consider. If this is your first time hiring a professional caregiver, there are many things you want to consider before making your choice. Visiting Angels® Mentor OH recommends asking the following questions when interviewing senior care agencies in the Willoughby area:

  • What types of home care services can your agency offer my loved one? Will you assist with transportation? Dressing? Medication reminders?
  • When is care available? Is my loved one required to sign up for a minimum amount of care? What if our needs change?
  • How does your agency screen caregivers for your team? Do you require a background or criminal history check for your caregivers?
  • If my family member is unhappy with their caregiver for any reason will they be able to be matched with someone new?
  • How does your agency stay up to date with current home care trends and research?
  • How do you find and recruit new caregivers for your team? What do you look for in an elder care professional?
  • Is your agency locally owned and operated? How long have you been caring for independent seniors?
  • Is ongoing monitoring of care a standard part of your services? How do you ensure my loved one's continued satisfaction?
  • Will my family member be able to meet with their care provider before they begin services?
  • If our caregiver has an emergency or is ill, how does your agency handle last minute changes?
