San Diego, CA (PRWEB) February 3, 2011
Firstat Nursing Services, a leading home health and in-home care company serving the greater San Diego area has recently released a home care guide – “Critical Questions You Must Before You Hire a San Diego Home Care Provider or San Diego Caregiver.”
According to Linnea Goodrich, the company’s president, “Selecting the right company and then the best caregiver to take care of a loved one is a big decision.” We created this guide to help San Diego families understand what to look for and the options that are available to them.”
Firstat Nursing Services has been helping seniors and injured people in the San Diego since 1997. Their experience in this area has earned them The Alzheimer's Association Certification for the last 3 years. “Selecting a caregiver can sometimes be a confusing task and certainly an overwhelming responsibility,” said Goodrich. “The more information you have “upfront” the better decision you will make for everyone concerned.”
“We spend a lot of time and resources to make sure that our caregivers are well trained and then we try to match each client with the caregiver that we feel will not only take care of the patient’s physical needs, but connect with them too,” continued Goodrich.
One thing that Goodrich does strongly recommend regardless of which agency a family may select, is to always be sure that you interview the agency, ask to see any certifications they claim to have and always ask for references. In addition, “a good agency will always do a mental and physical assessment prior to accepting a patient so they know the type of care the patient requires.
