Home Healthcare: a risk-free hiring guide

Homecare services are an affordable and flexible healthcare option for families with loved ones in need of some support. Whether it’s an illness, an injury, diminishing function, or even a new baby in the family, homecare can allow the person in need of support to remain in their home and maintain their independence.

Inviting a professional homecare provider into the home is a risky proposition for some, however. Are they certified professionals? Are they trusted and screened by the home health care company you hired? Are they adequately insured?

“Clients should feel free to ask questions of their homecare provider up front,” says Margot Ware, Director and Owner of Shylo Home Healthcare. “Homecare should be worry-free for the client.”

At Shylo Home Healthcare, each employee is thoroughly screened before hiring and they are fully covered by insurance.

Top homecare providers like Shylo employ a broad selection of professionals and offer customizable options for a wide variety of daily, weekly, or monthly needs. They also have numerous connections throughout the health industry, an important quality for those requiring in-home care.

“We advocate on behalf of our clients and can arrange any healthcare equipment required in a client’s home,” Ware says. “We also regularly consult with physicians and other community healthcare professionals in regards to a client’s nursing care. We are small enough to be familiar with all of our staff and clients, but large enough to meet any healthcare need!”

If you’re considering homecare services, make sure you ask the right questions and get a free, no obligation assessment done first. A life-changing event is stressful enough without your having to worry about your homecare provider.
