How to Help Select the Best Personal Care Aide for Your Loved One

Once you have made the decision to entrust your loved one’s life with an in-home caregiver, how do you work with Arcadia to select the best caregiver? There are a number of considerations in order to ensure we build a positive relationship for, you, your loved one, and the caregiver.

Arcadia Home Care is able to match a caregiver specifically with the tasks you need. For example, you may want someone who can prepare meals and drive your loved one to doctor appointments. Or, if social interaction is a priority, you could request a caregiver who is energetic or one that is quiet. When you work with us, we select a caregiver based on the home care needs of your loved one.

It’s best to start by giving Arcadia as much information as possible about your loved one. Be sure to emphasize what is most important, both in terms of technical skills as well as other social or environmental considerations. Here are a few things to consider when looking for personal care aides.

  • Loved one’s level of functioning
  • Food preferences
  • Activities they enjoy
