Live-in Home Health Care in NJ

Friday, June 26th, 2009

Is Live-in care something that could benefit your parents? Live in senior care puts a caregiver in the home of the senior to provide 24 hour in home care services. It is the most cost effective way to provide care if you require more than 9 hours of care each day. The caregiver can work a few hours here and a few hours there, basically when you need it. The great part is that they are always there.

You are required to provide room and board on top of their pay and they do need to have time to sleep as well as time for themselves. Live-in home healthcare can be a great alternative to a nursing home for seniors who need extra supervision.

Are Free Senior Care Referrals a Good Deal?

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

There are several companies out there who advertise free referrals for senior care services. These include home health care, assisted living, Alzheimer’s care, nursing homes and more. While this can be an excellent service when done by the right person, there are a few things you need to look out for. One is whether the company does any kind of review or follow-up on the services they are referring. Many times they will refer any company who pays to have their service advertised.

You also need to be careful of the motivation of the referral source. Often times, a referral source will make a recommendation to service based on who is paying them the best for each referral. Make sure you are careful that your parents are getting the best service for them, and not what is best for the referral source.
