Understandably, most elderly or disabled parents want to avoid a nursing home at all costs. While assisted living facilities are an option, those who are aging are healthiest (both physically and mentally) and happiest when they can maintain a level of independence and remain in their own homes. At Care Indeed, our in-home care services may be just what you are looking for.

When putting the care of a loved one into someone else's hands, it is vital to do your homework. Some facilities use employees sent from staffing agencies who are untrained, with no quality control in place. Those who are elderly or who suffer from dementia or even physical disabilities deserve so much more! Your loved one should be placed in the capable, caring hands of a caregiver who is fully trained, who you can trust to take special care to meet his/her needs.

Before choosing a home care agency in San Francisco, consider these questions:

  • Are criminal background checks performed on caregivers?
  • Does the agency meet and interview potential caregivers in person?
  • Is drug testing part of the hiring criteria?
  • Are references checked, and past employment verified?
  • Are caregivers CPR certified?
  • Are caregivers trained to meet the needs of clients?
  • Are caregivers matched to the unique needs of the client?

It is important to know all you can about the home care services you choose, not only for your own peace of mind, but for the safety and well-being of aging loved ones.

We understand that the elderly often need just a little help with personal care, dressing, preparing meals, or dusting, vacuuming, or other minor household chores. No family wants to place a loved one in an environment that can be detrimental to his or her mental health and well-being, simply because he or she needs a helping hand to manage daily tasks.

At Care Indeed, you can rely on our home care professionals to provide exceptional, personalized care for the elderly. We service the Palo Alto, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and other nearby areas of San Francisco, as well as the East Bay area. Give us a call today, and expect only the best care, provided by compassionate caregivers.
