First things first, you may start doing your research from the internet, as you might stumble onto more options there. When you start researching for homecare providers, you will realise that there are many options, for example, there are providers that operate in a specific area (like ADACare) or providers that operate nationally. You should also research how much they charge for homecare services; you can do that by just calling them if they provide a phone number, or you can write them through email! It is quite possible that you may need specific homecare services that are not that common, so it’s good to investigate what homecare providers can do for you.
Since you are probably planning in-homecare for an extended amount of time, you should talk with the nurses and staff to see if you are mentally compatible. After finding in-home health care providers that you might be interested in, you need to check their reputation in the public. It is important for a provider to be reputable since you are planning to get their help for a long time. Checking whether they have been approved by the NDIS can be a good sign of being trustworthy as well.
How to Interview a Home Health Care Provider
After looking at some home health care providers, interviewing them is the best way to find the best home health care provider for you. You can call them by a phone number that most providers provide on their website, or write to them by email and get their number that way. If you are uncomfortable by speaking on the phone, you can set up in-person interviews as well. You should think about these talks like job interviews. Since they give you another opportunity to learn more about the provider and help you confirm whether you can trust them. Some questions you can ask including but not limited to:
- How experienced are your caregivers?
- Do you perform background checks on your caregivers before hiring them and how thoroughly do you check them?
- Will there be a constant caregiver taking care of me or will different caregivers be going in and out of my house?
Choosing a home health care provider is a huge decision, so you should take your time and investigate as much as you can before settling on a provider.
