Home Care Assistance Private PayWhile some home care assistance services are only available through specific agencies and insurance, there is also an option for quality, affordable in-home care through private pay here in Graham County. These services are available for a variety of needs, including for patients who are elderly, mentally disabled, physically disabled, or recuperating from a recent hospital stay, surgery, or an accident.

What to Look for in Private Pay Home Care

The benefit of paying privately for in-home care is that you decide. The challenge is, how to decide, and what to look for in order to find the caring support you need. Here are a few suggestions to help guide you through the process as you interview potential home care agencies.

  • Assure the agency is conducting thorough screening and background checks. It’s ok to find out what their hiring process looks like, and whether they provide continuing education for their caregivers.
  • Ask the agency if you can interview the potential caregiver(s). It’s important the person coming into your home is a good match for you, on multiple levels -- skills and credentials, as well as personality.
  • Ask the agency if they have a backup plan. It’s possible your caregiver may not be able to make it one day. Does the agency have someone else who could fill in, in a pinch?
