Questions to Ask When Interviewing a Senior Care Agency in Tampa

provider of senior care in Tampa

When you are in the market for elderly care, there are usually three main options available. You can either place your loved one in a nursing facility, have family members care for them, or hire professional aid. If your loved one wishes to remain at home, or does not have family who can provide the assistance they require, your best option is to find professional care at home. But where should you start? Visiting Angels® Tampa FL recommends asking the following questions when interviewing senior care agencies in your area:

  • Is your agency locally or nationally owned? How long have you been in business?
  • How do you screen potential caregivers? What do you look for in a provider?
  • Can you list some examples of services your agency is able to provide to seniors?
  • Are there services your agency is unwilling or unable to provide?
  • What are your care hours? Are there times when care is not available?
  • Will I be able to reach your agency overnight if there is a concern or a problem?
  • What does your agency do to monitor care long-term?
  • If my loved one is unhappy with their caregiver, can we work with someone new?
  • Will my family member be given the opportunity to meet their caregiver before they start?
  • How does your agency handle caregiver cancellations such as sickness?
  • Is your agency up to date with the latest trends in home health care?
