Once you've determined that your loved one may require home care, you'll want to meet with professional care providers. A quality care provider will perform a complete home care assessment before starting care to determine your loved one's care needs. This makes it possible to precisely plan your loved one's care according to his or her specific care concerns. During a home care assessment, care specialists will meet with you and your loved one to discuss your loved one's greatest age-related or disability-related challenges, your loved one's lifestyle and daily schedule, and your overall goals for care.
Getting to know your loved one is also a key part of the caregiver selection process. For care agencies like Courageous Home Care, a full in-home care assessment means that care directors are able to match your loved one with a caregiver whose personality, skills, and experience are best suited to your loved one's needs.
