Home Care in San Jose

Home Care San JoseMany San Jose home care professionals are licensed practical nurses. Some home care workers in San Jose are independent and the risks may be slightly greater with hiring a home care worker to assist your family, if he or she is not part of a reputable, recognized, licensed and/ or insured agency.   Having a non-medical home care worker who is not only able to assist with personal care and home care needs, but who is certified in CPR or other medical training is an added bonus and more reason to hire a home care worker today for your senior aged loved one.  Many home care workers are part of an agency.

Elderly Homecare

There are many options in providing elderly homecare, from a weekly or daily helper to someone who is licensed to dispense medications for the senior in need.  Here are a few basic but pointed questions may best help you determine who would provide the best homecare:

1.  How long has the agency been providing private duty home care?

2.  Is a written, customized care plan developed in consultation with the client and family members, and is the plan updated as changes occur?

3.  How are emergencies handled after normal business hours?
