How To Choose The Right Private Duty Home Care Agency

No-Cost In-Home Assessment

Whether an aging loved one is being discharged from the hospital or an emergency care situation arises, finding the right private duty home care solution can be a daunting task. Many times the family, or even the client, is expected to choose a company from a long list that the hospital provides upon discharge. Unfortunately, there is no guidance provided about how to choose the right private duty home care company. Angels of Mercy Private Homecare Services can help explain the differences in private duty home care companies (licensed, certified, registry, etc.)—in addition to helping you determine the type of home care your loved one requires. Angels of Mercy Private Homecare Services can also help identify additional elder care resources that are available.

Our in-home (or even in-hospital) assessment is arranged with a nurse and/or social worker to evaluate the current situation and care needs of your elderly loved one. This assessment helps to guide your family to a care plan that’s smart, safe and appropriate.

Care plan recommendations are based on many considerations, including the medical, physical and mental condition of your loved one, finances, community and/or family support, as well as personal preference.

Additionally, it is at this point that other referrals are identified and suggested, such as elder law attorneys, community services and programs, entitlement programs (eligibility for government programs), and/or support groups. We find that this guidance provides much needed comfort through what seems like a confusing journey.
