One of the first decisions you’ll have to make once you have decided to start in-home care for your loved one is whether to hire a private caregiver yourself or use an in-home care agency to provide one. While there are some advantages to going the private route (LINK), many find the process stressful and time-consuming. As the family caregiver, you’re already shouldering a big responsibility, and adding hiring, vetting, and managing a caregiver to the list can often feel like more work – not less.
When you use an agency like Sequoia Senior Solutions, you’re not in this alone. We become a member of your care team, taking the stress out of every step of the process. From the hiring and background checks, to training and day-to-day supervision, our goal is to help your loved one age well in place and help you return to the role of son or daughter. We understand that choosing an in-home care agency can feel like a daunting task, and you probably have many questions about how it all works. That’s why we have outlined our entire process for how to start in-home care services, how we manage the day-to-day, and how we hire, train, and oversee our caregivers.
