There are two big questions everyone should ask when choosing a disability care provider. The first one is whether the agency will provide the home care services you need. The second one, which is even more important, is whether its team members will treat you like family.
What Disability Care Services Does the Agency Provide?
Disability care services are classified as either skilled or unskilled.
Skilled care is when health professionals work with you to help stabilize or improve your condition. This is done following a referral from your primary care physician. It includes things such as skilled nursing, speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and medication management.
Unskilled care, on the other hand, means help with day-to-day tasks like errands. It covers meal preparation, transportation, housekeeping, and a range of other things that will improve your quality of life. Thia can be arranged directly through the disability care agency.
Will the Disability Care Agency Treat You Like Family?
When you’re using disability care services for the first time, it will feel like inviting strangers into your home. That’s totally normal. However, over time, you’ll get to know each other so well that you’ll all start feeling like family. Trust is at the core of this relationship.
With that in mind, here are some questions to ask before you get started:
- Do you check their references and conduct background checks?
- What are their qualifications and professional experience?
- Do employees receive ongoing training and assessments?
- Are they subject to health screenings (including drug screenings)?
- What’s your complaints process, just in case I need to use it?
