Families sometimes feel stressed when they first decide to start searching for a home care agency. It's completely understandable to worry that you might feel overwhelmed at the prospect of coming up with a treatment plan. But it's much easier than most people think to get started. In fact, families who are planning their initial meetings with a care coordinator have already taken the first essential step toward ensuring ongoing care.
These initial meetings give clients and their families the chance to help our care coordinators come up with detailed treatment plans and schedules, express any specific requests or concerns, and ask any questions they may have prior to beginning regular services. It also offers our caretakers the opportunity to get to know their clients and make recommendations regarding one-on-one care.
Determining Your Loved One’s Specific Needs
Each client's needs are a little bit different, so the first step our care coordinators take is to create a detailed review of what kind of essential care your loved one will require. This may include help with bathing and grooming, getting dressed, or dealing with incontinence issues. It's important that clients and family members be forthcoming regarding the services they believe they will require, as this information is used to come up with a detailed treatment plan for our caretakers.
Every family's schedules are often a little different as well. Our home care agency will need to know when clients typically wake up and go to sleep, when they're used to eating meals, and when they take their medications. This information will help with scheduling later down the line.
It's important that our clients and their families understand the specific logistics of signing up for our home care agency so everything runs smoothly. These involve filling out documentation, establishing schedules, providing access to the home, and offering family contact information for our caregivers.
Discussing Emotional Needs and Goals
While most families enlist the help of providers for the activities of daily living, many clients also benefit from the emotional support provided by our dedicated caretakers. Clients themselves and their family members should expect to weigh in on emotional needs like social interaction, conversation and companionship, help with appointments and activities, and other specific social and emotional needs. This helps our home care agency come up with a plan regarding their clients' emotional goals.
