What to Expect Once You’ve Hired an Elder Care Agency, Hackensack, New Jersey

Finding a caregiver for your loved one can be a daunting process. To make the decision easier, most families hire an elder care agency. A reputable agency will have a roster of carefully interviewed, screened, and background-checked applicants available for your convenience. 

If you have an elderly loved one who needs extra help, you can count on ComForCare Home Care of Hackensack, NJ. Their caregivers provide patient- and family-centered care, respecting and supporting your loved one as much as you do.

Below are a few things to expect once you’ve hired an elder care agency:

  • In-Home Assessment: The elder care agency will conduct an initial visit to assess your loved one’s needs at home. The family should also participate in the evaluation to establish rapport and open communication.
  • Caregiver Preference: An elder care agency will allow the family to describe key qualities they’re seeking in a caregiver. If their loved one is more comfortable with a female health care provider or someone who is fluent in Spanish, these preferences will be built into the hiring decision.
  • Service Fees and Hours: Expect a reputable agency to discuss the service fees and hours clearly. Most services are available around the clock, such as assistance with hygiene, medication reminders, and laundry.
  • elder-careSetting Up A Schedule: The agency will schedule their services based on your loved one's preferences. It will be centered on the times that will benefit you and the patient most. Emergency contact numbers will also be provided.​​​​​​​
  • Personalized Care Plan: Expect the elder care agency to provide a personalized care plan outlining all the services that will be rendered to your loved one. The family should review this plan and express their agreement. If you have to make a change, the plan can be updated at any time according to your loved one’s needs.

Give your elderly loved one the care he or she deserves. In addition to standard elder care, ComForCare Home Care also offers non-medical and live-in home care to the South Bergen and North Hudson counties. Call them at (201) 820-4200 or visit their website for more information.
