How Our Home Care Process in Annandale Work
Caregiving is personal. It depends on your loved one's condition, concerns, routine, and many other factors that can change over time. For that reason, our care professionals will guide you through the following steps to ensure your family's needs are met:
- The first phone call: This is when you make initial contact with our office. At this stage, you'll be able to describe your general situation and inquire about our services, pricing, and overall approach to care.
- The consultation: Next, we'll meet for a no-cost consultation. Our care professionals will be able to evaluate your relative's abilities, find out what they struggle with, and learn more about their personality and interests. You can also ask more specific questions about how care is provided and express your own desires or concerns.
- Building a plan: The consultation will give us the information we need to propose a custom care plan that fully serves your family. It will include the exact kinds of support required and a personalized care schedule.
- Finding the best caregiver: Once we know more about your loved one's personality and what types of care they need, we'll recommend the most compatible caregiver for your family.
