How to choose a home healthcare agency? The task may seem overwhelming! We can help.
The key is to find the one that is most meticulous about the home health aides it sends out to their clients’ homes. David York Agency takes every step imaginable before hiring a home health aide. We maintain the highest quality standards in the industry. We make sure they are skilled, trustworthy and reliable. Furthermore, while a patient is on our roster, we check on them regularly to ensure the highest degree of quality home healthcare and personal service.
Taking the initial steps in choosing an agency should include these steps:
- Start with referrals. Does your family physician or specialist have any recommendations? Or do you know any friends who have used one? Knowing someone with first-hand experience with an agency can help narrow your choices.
- Educate yourself. Do the legwork when trying to choose. Online resources and reviews as well as meeting with or having a phone interview with an agency will help you get a better sense of how different organizations operate.
- Consider your medical needs. Different agencies may have more expertise in certain areas. Are they experienced in handling your loved ones’ specific conditions such as for Alzheimer’s or a stroke?
Never too early to get a jump on things:
Experts recommend that, when possible, families start thinking about home healthcare well in advance. Doing the legwork before a decision is a looming necessity can help make the process easier and less stressful, ultimately leading to an overall better fit for your loved one. Hence, when you finally choose a home healthcare agency, it is the best fit for your family.
