Learning as much as you can about a home care agency is the best way to determine which agency is best for you or a loved one. Some of the following questions you should ask a perspective home care provider about the services they offer are as follows:

  How long has the agency been serving
    the communtiy?
  Is the agency certified by Medicare?
  Is the agency licensed by the state?
  Does the agency assign supervisors to oversee
    the quality of care patients are receiving
    in their homes?
  What procedures are in place to
    handle emergencies?
  Are the agency caregivers available 24 hours
    a day, seven days a week?
 

 

Meeting: on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the New Iberia office.
