Common In-Home Care Questions
Finding the right in-home service provider is one of the most important things you can do for your loved one. By asking questions, you will be able to find an ideal match.
These questions are always a good place to begin:
- Is there a minimum or maximum number of hours for in-home care services?Not at all! Our services can be available for a few hours at a time, or we can provide 24/7 care. Even better, we require no contract for our services.
- What kind ofcredentialing and trainingdoes the staff have? Having a stranger come into your loved one’s home can be scary, but you can breathe easier knowing that our entire care team undergoes an intensive pre-employment screening process that includes a criminal background investigation, verification of references and employment history.
Our employees are subject to all state and federal health requirements as well. Nurses and caregivers for Executive care are bonded and insured, are experienced and have had their skills tested. They also undergo continuing education and training, and are supervised, monitored and managed by registered nurses.
- How are caregivers selected?We know how important the client/caregiver relationship is and will match the specific needs and requests of your loved one with the skills and background of our caregivers.
- Will insurance cover the cost of in-home care services?This is evaluated on a case-by-case basis and can be possible in some scenarios. Long-term care insurance policies and other insurance policies may cover the cost of our services.
In addition, Medicaid may also provide coverage in some instances, and there are other options through things like Veteran Affairs. It’s best to talk to us directly about your loved one’s situation.
