How to Choose a Home Care Agencyaehomecare
Questions to Ask

What is the difference between home care and home health care?

How long has the agency been providing services in the community?

Is the agency Medicaid licensed?

Is the agency insured and bonded?  Do they hire their employees as immediate staff or do they use caregivers that are independent contractors?  If they are independent contractors:

Does the agency set up a care plan, which includes input from the client, family, and other health care professionals?

How does the agency assign caregivers for services that are requested?  Does the agency formally introduce the provider or do they “dispatch” them to your home?

Is the agency providing 24hour/ 7 days a week service?
