It's Good To Be Home Inc., Abington, MA is provided by an individual caregiver within the person's home, rather than care provided in professional nursing facilities such as nursing homes or clinics. It can be provided by the person who is in the home, or it can also be provided by another caregiver. This differs slightly from residential care, which is usually provided by people who are not related to the person in a nursing facility.
When you are looking for a home care provider, it is important that you have a personal relationship with the one you hire. This will help to build a trusting relationship and can be done by hiring the caregiver you feel most comfortable with, and this can be done by meeting them when you come for visits or simply letting them know when you come for visits so that they know that your interactions with them are trustworthy and that they can relax because you won't be visiting them as often as the other caregiver. By meeting with your caregiver, you can also build a personalized care plan or program around your requirements; this can include everything from medication reminders to helping your child with their homework. If you work closely with your caregiver, you will also be able to establish a relationship of support.
If you do not feel comfortable meeting with your caregiver or with anyone else for that matter when it comes to your loved one's needs, you may want to consider having a private visit with your loved one at home instead. If you feel uncomfortable about seeing someone without a familiar face, you may want to ask your healthcare provider to come out to your home so that you can get a better idea of how your loved one is feeling and what kind of help they need. You can also make a personalized plan to meet with your caregivers and discuss your loved one's wants and needs. If all goes well, you should be able to develop a personalized care plan between you and your caregiver that benefits your loved one and works within your budget.
