  • Are home care agencies licensed?

    Most, but not all, states require licensing for home care agencies. Licensure usually means that criminal checks will be done on employees and that staff members must be qualified according to state regulations. For example, if someone is doing nursing care, they must have a nursing license or certificate.

  • Do agencies provide round-the-clock care?

    Many do, although the cost for care during non-traditional working hours may be higher.

  • What are the ADLs?

    The activities of daily living, or ADLs, are a way to determine what level of help you need from a caregiver. They include:

    • Toileting and toilet hygiene
    • Bathing and personal grooming of body and hair
    • Dressing and undressing
    • Cooking and eating regular meals
    • Having the mobility to get around your home
    • Being able to move yourself from one spot to another, such as from a bed to a chair or wheelchair, if necessary
  • What services do home care agencies offer?

    Home caregivers may provide a broad range of services related to medical needs as well as ADLs (activities of daily living). Medical help may be in the form of assisting with physical or occupational therapy, planning and taking medications, and skilled nursing.

  • How do I know if home health care isn’t enough for my loved one?

    If you or your loved one is unable to manage most of the ADLs, or needs round-the-clock nursing care, a nursing home may be a better fit. A doctor can help develop a plan of support that addresses concerns realistically, based on what the individual is able to accomplish and what help is needed.

  • What happens if I don’t like the caregiver I’m assigned?

    You should be able to talk to the agency to have another caregiver assigned to you. But be sure you are not acting prematurely. It takes a while for relationships to develop, and you and your new caregiver need to learn to understand one another and determine how to work well together.

  • Does long-term care insurance pay for home health care?

    Although you will need to look at your policy documents to ensure that this is the case, most long-term care may be used to pay for a home caregiver. Some policies will even pay for a family member who provides care. This is something you can find out by looking at your documents or calling your insurance agent.
