Finding the right care provider for a family member can be a daunting task. If you are not familiar with Home Health Care industry jargon, you just aren’t sure if you are comparing apples to apples or if your research is creating fruit salad!
What questions do I ask? What’s the difference between certified vs. accredited vs. licensed? How do I know if I am receiving accurate information or an evasive redirect?
Although we hope that HELPsource™ Home Health Services will be your provider of choice, we recognize that we may not be the best fit for every family. We believe in educating you about Home Health Care so that your decision will be an informed one.
Do I know what services the Home Health Care Company provides? Does their staff and/or services include:
Do I know what I will be paying for?
Do I know the company’s mission?
Do I know who to contact in case of an emergency?
How long has this company been providing care in my area?
Is this company part of a Certified Home Health Agency, a Personal Care Agency, or a non-medical Agency? Is it a Registry, potentially exposing you to tremendous legal liabilities as an employer. You won’t be able to tell by the name alone. You need to ask.
Call to ask why this is so important!
Only HELPsource™ has a Home Care Concierge, who will answer questions that you didn’t know you needed to ask! She will allow you the time to ask all of your questions and if you need a more in depth or more researched answer, will get back to you with information in an agreed upon time frame.
If appropriate she will discuss options for subsidized services, provided through the Philadelphia, Bucks, or Montgomery County’s Area Agency for Aging.
The only foolish question is the one unasked.
HELPsource™ Home Health Services has provided quality, reliable Skilled Nursing, Licensed Therapy Home Care and personal care assistance for more than 10 years throughout Philadelphia, Lower Bucks and Eastern Montgomery Counties.
