What should every client of a home care agency expect from the agency?
Care needs to start with a professional or a doctor’s order. Once your doctor gives you a referral for home health services, the agency will set up an appointment and come to your home to talk to you about your needs and ask you some questions about your health, especially if you have Alzheimer’s/dementia.
The staff from the agency will also talk to your doctor about your care and keep your doctor up to date on how you’re doing. Keep in mind that care workers must check on you as often as your doctor says.
These professionals should always check what you eat and drink, as well as your blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, and breathing.
Making sure you’re taking your prescriptions and other drugs correctly, asking if you’re in pain, helping you learn how to care for yourself, so you can do it yourself, making sure you’re safe at home, and, most importantly, coordinating your care plan on a regular basis.
Home health agencies use a wide range of medical professionals to help elderly, disabled, or sick people who can’t take care of themselves and may need 24-hour Care on a short or long-term basis.
