To find the right home care in Dothan, you need to know what qualities to look for and what questions to ask. Your care needs are unique to you, but there are some overarching factors that are important for anyone who's seeking in-home care. For example, when you hire a care service, you need to have complete faith that the care professional they send can actually provide the specific support you need.

At Interim HealthCare of Dothan, we often hear from families who are completely overwhelmed. They may know that their loved one needs professional care, or that they need assistance as family caregivers, but they don't feel completely comfortable bringing in outside help. If you're in this situation right now, we want to help make this process as simple as possible for you.

Choosing Your Home Care in Dothan

Before you start your search, consider what resources are available to you. Do you know anyone who has already been through this? If you have medical care needs, can you reach out to your healthcare professional for recommendations or a referral? Any insight you can get about how a home care agency treats their clients can be a big help.

Whether you've received any recommendations or you're searching on your own, it's important to reach out to any potential agency directly. This will give you a clearer sense of what they can do for your specific situation. You can also get an idea of how they'd engage with you as a client. 

When you reach out to home care providers in the Dothan area, make sure to cover the following:

  • Their specific services and scheduling options - Can they provide the kind of support your family needs at the times that work for you? 
  • Pricing model and overall costs - Based on their rates and how they structure their care, can you secure the right support within your budget? 
  • Hiring practices and oversight - What training and vetting do their caregivers go through and how will their care be overseen?
  • Hiring practices and oversight - Are their caregivers employed (W2) or contractors?
  • Communication methods - Who will be your point of contact if you have questions or concerns? How often will they be in touch with your family?
