If you are looking for senior care for a loved one in the Sioux Falls, you likely understand the importance of making an informed choice. After all, in-home care is a very personal experience, so you want to make sure the agency you choose is experienced and well qualified. Interviewing agencies in-person or over the phone is an excellent place to start and will give you insight into their values, credentials, and services.

At Visiting Angels® Sioux Falls, we know that many families are new to the idea of senior care, and may feel overwhelmed with the evaluation process. Locally owned and operated, we have helped hundreds of families in the same position, and recommend starting each interview with these questions:

  1. Is the agency licensed, bonded, and insured?
  2. What services do they offer?
  3. When is care available? 
  4. Do they customize their care plans?
  5. What happens if needs change?
  6. What are their hiring requirements for caregivers?
  7. Have their caregivers undergone background and reference checks?
  8. How do they match caregivers and clients?
  9. What happens if the caregiver chosen isn't a good fit?
  10. Can they accommodate last-minute care needs?
