What Makes A Good Home Care Agency?

There are many home care agency services in the DC area, and some provide top-quality care for seniors and the disabled. But how can you tell the best from the mediocre and which one is the right fit for you or your loved one? Here are some helpful tips from Capital City Nurses, to make your decision a little bit easier.

Experience

When you choose a home care agency with many years in the business you take fewer risks and chances. For example, Capital City Nurses has been around since 1976, and you know we can be trusted.

Licenses

It’s best to go with a home care agency licensed to do business in your city or area. For example, if you live in Maryland, look for businesses licensed by the Maryland Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene. This lets you know you are dealing with qualified professionals who must meet specific standards of care.

Trust

It is essential to trust the workers who come into your home and provide personal services. For this reason Capital City Nurses runs extensive background checks on all our people and we make sure they are properly licensed, certified, and insured. Plus we are bonded and carry professional as well as general liability insurance coverage.

Comfort

You should feel comfortable with your home-care agency and this includes the worker who visits your home. This person should be courteous, cheerful, and helpful. A home-care worker should make you feel at ease, and if not, you may need to check with another service.

Personality

Your personal care provider should like people. It’s not hard to tell if someone has a general liking for others and enjoys helping people. When you are around someone like this, it makes everyone feel better and can greatly enhance one’s quality of life.

Professionalism

Even though a good home care agency should provide friendly and personable workers, they should always maintain professional standards. These people are here to serve you, and at the same time they are professionals who always know how to conduct themselves.

Competence

When you do business with a home care agency like Capital City Nurses, you can depend on highly-competent help. Our people receive the proper training required for the job and they have all the necessary qualifications to serve you. We invite you to call 1-866-807-7307 and take advantage of our care-assessment services, which will tell you everything you need to know. You can follow them on Twitter for latest news and updates!
