Care Options

Before deciding on a private-duty home care company, discuss the following questions with your family:

  • How much care do I need?
  • What schedule will offer the most benefit for my situation?
  • How much care can I afford?
  • Does the caregiver company have minimum hours per day or days per week?
  • How does it work if I need 24-hour care?
  • What are the caregivers allowed to do when they help me?
  • Will the caregivers help me with housework as well as bathing?
  • Does the caregiver drive?
  • Must I provide food for the caregiver?
