4 Tips to Choosing a Senior Home Caregiver

4 Tips to Choosing a Senior Home Caregiver

Finding the best home caregiver for your aging parents or other family members may seem to be a very daunting task. We each want to take extra precautions to ensure those we love are in the best possible care. How is the best way to do this? Which steps can we take to maintain a safe and positive environment for those within our care? Following these easy steps will give you the peace of mind that you have the best possible care for your elderly family members.

  • Know your criteria. Every caregiver has a different specialty when it comes to the process of caring for the elderly. Understanding what you would like to see in the caregiver will allow you to weed out those who will not fit your qualifications. Also, you should accept the fact that not all applicants will fit your image of the best caregiver. While this is absolutely fine, you should remember it is reality.
  • Talk to as many caregivers as possible. If you interview a greater number of applicants, you will be able to understand who will best fit your job description for senior home care. The diverse amount of caregivers in the Manhattan Beach area allows you to choose the best caregiver with a greater amount of ease.
  • Research their experience. In a case such as this, understanding just how qualified the caregiver you are hiring is will ensure you have peace of mind about your decision. Researching their education, former work experience, and other qualifications helps you to better understand them as a qualified home senior caretaker.
  • Ensure they understand what you are looking for. Perhaps most important of all, talking through your expectations with the caregiver you hire will maintain you are both on the same page regarding the work you are looking for. Throughout this process, work with them to better understand the elderly family member they will be tending to.

Although this may be a bit of a stressful time for you, hiring a qualified caregiver for your senior family member will be much easier if you understand your criteria, talk to as many caregivers as possible, properly research applicants, and ensure they understand the work description. Choosing the proper candidate for home care in Manhattan Beach will be much less worrisome if you properly go about finding and interviewing potential hires.

I like working for 24hr home care because they allow me to have a flexible schedule and I can take advantage of how far away from home I'd like to travel for work.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
