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

If your loved one can no longer care for themselves without assistance but prefer to continue living independently, in-home senior care can be a great help. But finding the right senior care provider in Tampa can feel like an enormous undertaking. After all, you want someone that not only provides expert care with dignity and respect but also offers companionship and a listening ear. 

At Visiting Angels® Tampa, we suggest starting with interviews. Interviewing prospective senior care providers is the quickest way to find out about an agency's services, credentials, and policies. 

3 Questions to Ask When Interviewing Senior Care Providers in Tampa

Before interviewing potential senior care providers in Tampa, take a moment to write down a list of questions and concerns you may have, including:

  1. What services do you offer and when are they available?
    Look for a provider that offers a wide range of services and 24/7 availability. At Visiting Angels Tampa, our senior care services cover a wide range of non-medical needs, from mobility assistance and light housekeeping to specialized memory care and certified palliative care. We customize our services to the individual needs of our clients, and our caregivers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to accommodate any schedule.  

  2. How do you match clients and caregivers?
    To make strong, lasting matches, a provider needs to know the skills and personalities of their caregivers as well as the needs, schedules, and preferences of their clients. At Visiting Angels Tampa, we spend time getting to our clients and use our extensive knowledge of our caregivers along with our Select Your Caregiver® program to find the perfect client and caregiver fit.  

  3. What if we prefer another caregiver?
    You should always have the freedom to request a different caregiver. At Visiting Angels Tampa, we're confident we'll find the right caregiver for your loved one, but if you feel it isn't the perfect fit, we'll be happy to introduce another caregiver.
