Quality Home Care Solutions
Before calling a home services agency, it is important that you answer some basic questions about you or your loved one’s needs
Think about questions such as:
How much help do you need? Do you require assistance in the morning? Evening? All the time? Varying days and times? Just help getting up (or going to bed)?
What do you need help with? Medication reminders? Housekeeping, laundry, and cooking? Driving and errands? Paperwork and filing?
Are you comfortable bathing independently, or would you prefer assistance?
Do you have balance problems? Balance problems can affect many areas of your life—from cooking to bathing to mobility. Which areas are you finding most challenging?
Does carrying laundry up from the basement make you tired or nervous?
Are you having memory problems?
Would you be more comfortable if someone else drove you on errands and to appointments?
Think about how often you want someone to be with you.
What days and times are ideal?
How flexible are you?
You don’t have to decide now—sometimes the right home care aide comes along and is only available at certain times
What don't you need help with?
Are there tasks you or your family member wants to keep doing on his/her own?
Who is responsible for care?
Are you? Another family member? Or is your loved one currently caring for him/herself?
Why are you looking into home care services today?
Has your health or mobility—or that of a parent, spouse or friend—changed? Are day-to-day tasks more challenging? Or are you simply planning and researching for future needs?
