Finding the right in-home caregiver for an aging loved one whose needs have advanced beyond your abilities to care for them by yourself is certainly a challenge. Not only is it important to find a caregiver whose personality aligns with your loved one, it’s important to find someone who offers the highest quality care and companionship possible.
At SYNERGY HomeCare, our compassionate, in-home caregivers have the skills, training and demeanor to effectively work with anyone in the Olympia area, and would love to do the same for your aging family member. Outlined below are a few tips to keep in mind when selecting an in-home care provider.
Start By Determining the Level of Care Your Loved One Needs
One of the first things that should be done prior to looking for an in-home caregiver is to sit down with your loved one to determine the level of care with which he or she feels comfortable. Having this discussion will provide each of you with a baseline for the level and frequency of care you will likely be requesting of a potential caregiver.
Many people choose to make this assessment with their aging family member themselves, but you also have the option of scheduling a complimentary, no-obligation needs assessment with one of SYNERGY HomeCare’s own compassionate team members. These professionals can provide you with the most comprehensive understanding of your loved one’s needs and ensure no easy-to-forget areas of care are overlooked.
Once the SYNERGY HomeCare representative has a thorough understanding of your loved one’s unique needs they will begin to outline a detailed and individualized in-home care plan.
Once an In-Home Care Plan Is Established, We’ll Work Hard to Match You with the Most Suitable Caregiver
We understand that in order to feel like a trustworthy companion, SYNERGY HomeCare’s caregiver must share similar interests with your senior family member and be able to adequately understand their emotional and physical needs. That’s why when it comes time to match you with a specific caregiver, we take our time to ensure no aspect of your care plan or needs assessment is left out of the decision-making process, and that every facet of your loved one’s personality is taken into account in order to select the best possible fit for a caregiver.
And because you’re dealing with SYNERGY HomeCare – one of the largest and most renowned professional in-home care providers in the world – you can feel confident that we only employ the most extensively trained and qualified caregivers, allowing you to rest easy knowing a compassionate and competent caregiver is looking after your loved one while you can’t.
Also, If your loved one exhibits signs of memory impairment or is challenged in any other physical or mental way, we can match him or her with a caregiver who specializes in that unique area of care provision.
Just Because We’re Assuming the Role as Caregiver Doesn’t Mean Your Involvement Ends
At SYNERGY HomeCare in Olympia, we strongly encourage family members to stay as involved as they’d like in the planning and execution of their aging loved one’s in-home care. We take your trust very seriously, and we will never make a decision without consulting you.
