The following are some topics that you may want to consider when hiring a caregiver:
Making the Best Decision
The decisions regarding the care of your parent is an important one. After all, your parent is one of the most important persons in your life. Your parent needs to be comfortable with a caregiver living and working in the home. If possible, it is important that you discuss the situation with your parent and other family members, particularly any siblings. To help you, Bahay CAREgiver Services will come to your home for a free no obligation assessment.
Hiring a caregiver allows elderly to enjoy living in their own home and avoids the stress of moving to a retirement or nursing home. Bahay CAREgiver Services is committed to ensuring that your mother or father continues to live in their own home until this is no longer the best option.
Finding the Right Match
If a caregiver is the preferred option—then finding right match is critical to receiving the long-term benefits of your caregiver.
Live-in or Live-Out
Not all caregivers need to live with your parent, but in some cases this may be required. Bahay CAREgiver Services has a number of caregivers willing to provide either live-in or live-out services.
The caregiver will be solely devoted to the needs of your parent— they don’t work for anyone else. The caregiver knows your family’s needs and requirements. Retirement and nursing homes typically have a high turnover of staff and, therefore, can not offer the same consistent level of service. At an old age home, your parent is just one of many clients. Hiring a caregiver provides consistent quality care.
Providing a Range of Services
Live-in caregivers provide multiple services over an extended period of time, including cooking, cleaning, general errands, assists with outings etc. Old aged homes offer only limited services during business hours.
Hiring a caregiver benefits not just your mother or father but the entire family. The caregiver will enable you to enjoy a higher quality time with your mother or father.
Caregivers are typically paid about $10 per hour and work a standard 40 to 44 hours per week which is considerably less expensive than a private retirement home.
