The Maryland / DC area is full of aging baby boomers who have elderly parents, spouses caring for a sick loved one, and older adults who don’t have family close by.
Consequently, choices regarding long-term care are complex. Senior’s needs must be assessed. Create a plan of care. Provide services that meet the needs and budgets of the senior. Coordinate and monitor the services. When seeking home care, assisted living or nursing home assistance, families should hire Senior Life Care Planning, who provides coordination for all of these services.
Whether hiring an independent caregiver or choosing a home care agency, there are a number of criteria you should keep in mind. The caregiver must produce documentation of their qualifications and experience; have experience in the care that meets the specific needs of the senior; be bonded and insured; have no criminal history; have three good references; and finally, be caring and compassionate. Therefore, the senior and their family should feel completely comfortable with the caregiver. As the caregiver may be coming into their home, taking care of their loved one to ensure the senior’s quality of life.
