Firstat Nursing Services, a senior caregiver agency serving San Diego publishes helpful guide, “Need Part Time Help? In-Home Skilled Nursing Can Help.” —
“Arranging daily care for an elderly or ill loved one is an important responsibility,” says Linnea Goodrich, president of Firstat Nursing Services. When a nursing home or assisted living facility is out of the question, at home nursing services may be a good solution. Adult children facing uncertainties often rely on skilled nursing services. Here’s what to expect from quality in-home care.
Competent, Certified Nurses - A quick search on the Internet and you can find all kinds of options for in-home care. But, take a closer look and you’ll find the best service employs only experienced, fully certified, registered nurses with years of hands-on experience. Certification for both Alzheimer’s disease and dementia is a must when faced with the uncertainties of these challenging diseases. Be sure to check the website of any agency you’re considering for accreditations and certificates.
Caring, Patient and Kind Staff - Visit a few in-home nursing agencies and speak with providers one-on-one. It’s easy to tell the difference between caregivers with a passion for caregiving and those who are just going through the motions. If mom or dad will be spending a significant amount of time with a skilled nurse, make sure he or she is someone who shows patience, kindness and compassion. After all, when you can’t be there, peace of mind that your caregiver is providing the best possible care for your loved one is invaluable.
Ability to Create Customized Plans - Top in-home skilled nursing agencies understand the changing needs of their patients. Some days are better than others, while other days can be difficult. Look for an in-home agency that will help you create a personalized plan based on your needs, not a service chart. With part-time and full-time hours available, it’s easy to schedule a few hours here or there, and more help when you need it most.
