How to Get Started with In-Home Care in Pittsburgh
For many families, hiring in-home care services for a loved one feels like a weighty task. At Visiting Angels® Pittsburgh, we know it’s not easy to take that first step towards working with a professional care provider. We’ll help you set up care you have total confidence in, offering expert guidance every step of the way.
It all begins with a no-cost, no-obligation consultation so you can learn more about our approach to caregiving. During this meeting, we’ll also work with you and your loved one to design a customized blueprint for their care. Once you’ve decided to continue with our services, we’ll handpick a caregiver from our team to deliver compassionate assistance that helps your loved one age in place.
What to Expect From Your In-Home Care Consultation
Our care consultations at Visiting Angels Pittsburgh are designed to provide an abundance of information for families. That way, they can make informed decisions about their loved ones’ care. We’ll offer clear explanations of the caregiving process and answer any questions you have about our caregivers or our specific services.
We’ll also get to know more about your loved one during this initial meeting. By gathering details about their unique preferences, lifestyle, and current care requirements, we can make the best suggestions for their plan and caregiver match.
We cover a wide range of topics during this conversation. Here are some subjects you can expect us to discuss with you:
- The senior’s daily routine and habits
- Needs for emotional support and social interaction
- The best way for the caregiver to access the senior’s home
- Physical difficulties and requirements for mobility support
- Assistance with essential tasks related to housekeeping and homemaking
- Dietary concerns and meal preferences
- Memory disorders affecting the senior’s day-to-day life
- Any chronic conditions the senior is currently managing
- How often the senior requires visits from a caregiver
Matching Your Loved One with an In-Home Care Provider in Pittsburgh
After we’ve created a customized plan of care for your loved one, we’ll choose a caregiver to implement this plan. We always make our caregiver matches based on personality compatibility and the skills required to deliver the services the senior has requested. While we have a great track record of making lasting caregiver matches, we ensure families have the last say in who cares for their loved one. You can always request a replacement caregiver if you’re ever dissatisfied with our initial choice.
