The Secret to Choosing the Right Caregiver

Choosing the right caregiver for your loved one is a critical decision. Dr. Jacqueline DuPont Carlson, a gerontologist from Assured In-Home Care, shares valuable insights on what sets their services apart and what to look for in a caregiver.

People and Compassion

First and foremost, the quality of the people you’re interacting with is paramount. At Assured In-Home Care, the team comprises kind, compassionate individuals who genuinely love working with older adults. This intrinsic motivation is a cornerstone of effective caregiving.

Meaningful Activities

Understanding each client’s unique interests and needs is essential. Assured In-Home Care uses detailed intake forms to tailor activities, such as teaching a client to ride a bike or engaging in stimulating games. Personalized activities enrich the client’s life and enhance their well-being.

Case Management

Regular accountability checks and case management are vital. Assured In-Home Care’s approach includes visiting clients to assess their needs and providing unbiased recommendations for additional services, such as visiting doctors or hospice care.

Licenses and Insurance

When evaluating caregiving services, ensure they are licensed, bonded, and carry workers’ compensation insurance. Theft insurance and liability insurance are also crucial, offering peace of mind that the service is both professional and secure.

Family-Owned Commitment

Family-owned and operated agencies often have a personal stake in the quality of their service, viewing caregiving as an ethical endeavor rather than just a business. This personal accountability often results in higher standards of care.

Accountability and Monitoring

Assured In-Home Care requires caregivers to sign a camera monitoring waiver, agreeing to be monitored covertly or overtly. This commitment to transparency and accountability ensures that caregivers uphold the highest standards.

Technology and Training

Utilizing advanced technology for training and communication, Assured In-Home Care ensures caregivers are well-equipped and continuously supported. This includes real-time texting capabilities and comprehensive training programs.

Exceptional Customer Care

Customer care is paramount. Assured In-Home Care prioritizes placing families and clients first, providing live support every weekend and after hours. This commitment to personal connection ensures that clients and their families feel valued and supported at all times.

Choosing the right caregiver involves more than just checking credentials—it’s about finding compassionate, accountable, and well-trained individuals who can provide personalized and meaningful care. By focusing on these aspects, Assured In-Home Care stands out as a premier choice for in-home care services.
