Caregiving Services:

help with homecare, doctors making house calls

 

Believe it or not, you have LOTS of company when it comes to caregiving!  Not only do many adults today care for a parent or other loved one, many people work to provide all sorts of homecare and caregiving services in an effort to relieve some of the stress, frustration and fatigue that can come with the job.  We often become caregivers out of necessity, with very little experience or knowledge of what the task entails or what can be expected.  It is easy to become overwhelmed or confused.  Keep in mind that many businesses that are not specifically caregiving businesses will try to accommodate you if you ask them for help...but you have to ask!  For instance, they may be able to mail or to deliver your purchases if transportation or time is an issue.

Before you get to the point of exhaustion, you may want to find out what kind of services are available to caregivers today.  Links below can get you started.  Whether it’s time to think about hiring homecare help or looking into long-term care arrangements, it usually helps to know where you can turn when help is needed.  Of course, if you need help now, do explore!

Remember that many people, from friends to family to neighbors, would be happy to help out from time to time.  All they need is for you to ask!  For the times that more regular help is needed, you may want to consider the following types of caregiving services.  When you are ready to hire help, be it a person or facility or service, it would behoove you to find out about them:

  • ask for references and how long have they been in business
  • ask if they have had experience with your particular case or needs and how much
  • ask what type of training or certification the helper has and for credentials
  • ask for all costs or fees, method of payment
  • ask if a minimum length of time is necessary
