Answers to Common Questions About Home Care

Choosing the right type of care for your aging loved one requires careful consideration of all of your options. In-home care services are one option that can enable your loved one to remain in the comfort of their home while still receiving the assistance they need to have the best quality of life possible. Here are answers to a few of the most common questions we’re asked by the families we serve to help you make an informed decision regarding your loved one’s care.

What Services Does Home Care Offer for Seniors?

Orlando home care services are easily customized to fit your loved one’s needs. Our caregivers focus on providing assistance with daily activities including:
• Personal hygiene (bathing, toileting, dressing, etc.)
• Meal preparation
• Transportation services
• Medication reminders
• Companionship

Is Home Care Available 24-Hours a Day?

In-home caregivers are available around-the-clock to care for your loved one whenever needed. Our flexible care schedules allow your loved one to receive care just a few hours each week or on a live-in basis.

Are Families Responsible for Paying Employer Taxes?

When you choose a caregiver from a home care agency like Prestige Home Care, the agency handles all of the financial responsibilities of an employer, including the taxes.

How Are Caregivers Screened for Employment?

Every candidate we hire undergoes an extensive criminal background check. We carefully review their employment history and references and verify all certifications and licenses. We also provide ongoing training to our caregivers in Prestige to ensure the highest level of quality and professionalism.

Will the Same Caregiver Come Every Time?

As a best practice, we try to respect the relationship between seniors and their caregivers by having the same person come as often as possible. In some instances, such as a senior who needs 24-hour care, it may be necessary to have a team of caregivers who work in shifts. If a regular caregiver is ill and a substitute will be coming, we will notify you and your loved one so that you are prepared.

Making a choice regarding your senior loved one’s ongoing care can be stressful. At Prestige Home Care, we try to make the process as seamless as possible. Our friendly Care Managers are available 24/7 to answer questions or discuss care options, and we offer complimentary in-home consultations so prospective clients can get to know us one-on-one. To learn more about our hourly or live-in care services in Orlando, call [phc_phone] and schedule your consultation today.
