East Bay caregiving services - Customized to meet the unique needs of your aging loved ones

by Health Now Health Care Services

Aging process turns the life around as a person may lose their mental and physical capabilities. The decision of hiring an in-home caregiver for your parents or any other elder in your family is the best option. They provide the right level of care taking into account the truly unique needs of the seniors. 

Not only this type of caregiving is effective but also at the same time affordable. While staying in a hospital, the patient might be charged for things such as admission charge, bed charges, fee for doctor visit, nursing charges, meals charges, medicines cost, associated therapy charges etc.  On the other hand, in home caregiving, the same kind of care is being provided at almost half the price. So, in terms of cost effectiveness, a home caregiving service is surely more advisable.

Caregiving services based on schedule:

Hourly home caregiving

Many elders don’t require round the clock live-in assistance, so hiring caregiving services on an hourly basis is a good option for them. They may need assistance on Saturdays or Sundays, only during morning or evening, or when they have an appointment with the doctor.

Hourly caregivers are equally dedicated and offer the same services as in-home caregiver provides such as emotional support, safety and companionship to the elders.

Round the clock caregiving

Live-in home caregivers provide full-service whether it is day or night. The agency that you have hired gives rotational shift timings to their caregivers and they are available to assist your loved ones 24 hours a day.

Things to consider when you are looking to hire caregiving services

Assess the needs first

A doctor or other qualified professional must carry out an assessment to determine the needs that the individual require. Before hiring an in-home caregiver, the needs must be assessed such as the person needs help for daily activities, nutritional support, monitoring of daily health or for medication etc. 

Create a schedule

Create a schedule outlining whether your elder one need an hourly or round-the-clock assistance. It must be clearly communicated to the caregiving service provider, so that the duties and the shift timings are split among the caregivers in case of 24 hours day assistance.

Selecting the agency and the caregiver

Conduct an in-depth interview with the caregiving agency that you are planning to hire. Also make sure that you select the caregiver based on their education, skill-set and experience that fulfills the need that your loved one requires. While hiring such caregiving services, you must look for a service provider that has enough experience to deliver quality and compassionate care.
