Senior Care Provider in Sacramento: Questions to Ask When Choosing Care

For many families, choosing a senior care provider in Sacramento for an aging loved one feels like a daunting task. This can be especially true if your loved one has a sudden need for in-home care that was unexpected. 

Interviewing prospective senior care providers and agencies throughout the Sacramento area is a great place to start. Whether you do it in person or over the phone, these meetings can give you insight into an agency’s services, credentials, and values. Write down a list of questions for each agency before you begin interviewing and record the answers you receive so you can compare agencies and narrow down your list.

At Visiting Angels® Sacramento, we suggest asking the following questions:

  1. Are they licensed to operate in the state of California?

  2. How long have they been in business?

  3. Can they provide references?

  4. Do they offer the services your loved one needs?

  5. Will they customize their services to your loved one’s needs? 

  6. What happens if you need to add, change, or remove services?

  7. What is their hiring process for caregivers?

  8. When are their caregivers available?

  9. Can they accommodate last-minute care requests?

  10. How does the provider ensure patient confidentiality?
