How would a client get started with services?

Once you’ve figured out your needs, it’s time to evaluate which home care services are right for your loved one.

Here is an overview of how a client would get started with services:

  • Decide whether in-home care is needed
    Keep in mind that your loved one may be resistant to receiving in-home senior care. Recognize and talk with your loved one about the fact that this process may be difficult, but that working with a caregiver will have many advantages.
  • Decide what services are needed
    Work with your loved one to determine his or her care needs. Be sensitive to his or her wishes and remember that your loved one may be in denial about how much help he or she needs.
  • Decide who to hire
    There are several options: you can designate a family member to provide care, hire an individual directly, or hire a caregiver through an agency. LifeWorx has been in the business of screening and interviewing thousands of caregivers for 18 years, so we are well-positioned to find the right match. If the initial choice does not work out, LifeWorx provides additional options until everyone is completely happy.
  • Interview caregivers and choose one, begin service
    The client relations manager selects the best caregiver and arranges an introduction between the caregiver and care recipient. During that meeting, everyone reviews the plan of care to ensure agreement and understanding of the services to be provided.
  • Paying for home care
    The cost of in-home care varies greatly by state, circumstance, type, and level of care that will be provided. The best way to find out about the cost of care for you or your loved one is to speak to a professional care coordinator. Payment is dealt with through CRM and accounting or also with our long-term care administrator.
