— Firstat Nursing Services, a Poway Caregivers Home Health Agency shares “3 Things to Think About When Considering a Local Home Health Agency.”
“Like so many adult children, searching for the perfect in-home nursing service for an aging parent can be complicated,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. With so many choices, how do families know which agency to choose? Luckily, the best in-home providers share some of the same traits.
Here are three qualities families should look for as they seek out a reputable, professional skilled nursing service for a loved one.
Expertly Trained Nurses - One area where there should never be any compromise when choosing an in-home caregiver is medical expertise. Entrusting a stranger to make critical medical decisions in your absence is a serious thing, and expertise is absolutely necessary.
Look for accreditations and certificates that provide detailed evidence of highly trained professionals. Be sure to review the agency website of any service being considered.
Patience and Dedication - While certificates and accredited medical care is vital, caregivers who are kind and patient are important too. Reputable agencies screen their providers for soft skills, or those character traits that make in-home care successful. The nurses and caregivers you meet will likely be spending a tremendous amount of time with a loved one. Kindness, respect and patience are non-negotiable.
A Passion for Care - Professional in-home nurses who truly love what they do are always in high demand. When speaking with a prospective agency, talk to the caregivers about themselves, learn why they chose in-home care as a profession. An exceptional skilled nurse has a calling for care, and it shows.
