Senior Home Care
Senior Home Care Includes:
Tailored Care that Changes Over Time
Since no two seniors have the exact same needs, at-home care involves customizing a plan specific to each person. Caregivers get to know their clients’ unique preferences and capabilities. The care plan can then be adjusted over time as needs change. In-home care allows seniors the flexibility to receive as much or little support as they want.

What Questions Should I Ask When Interviewing Home Care Agencies?
Searching for at-home support can feel stressful. Asking the right questions is key to finding an agency suiting your family’s needs, including:
- What types of care do you offer (companionship, personal care, specialized dementia care etc.)?
- How are caregivers screened, trained and supervised?
- What caregiver/client matching do you do based on needs/personality?
- How are emergencies handled? What is the back-up plan if a regular caregiver cannot make it?
- What are the rates for various services?
- Can you provide client referrals/testimonials I could contact?
Don’t be afraid to ask questions. A quality agency will be transparent and address all concerns.
How Can I Ensure Senior Home Care is The Right Fit?
If you’re considering home care for a senior loved one, it’s reasonable to wonder about picking the right agency and services. Here are some tips:
- Schedule an at-home evaluation so the agency can review your loved one’s needs and living situation.
- Ask about training, caregiver screening, and supervision policies. Quality care requires qualified caregivers.
- Clarify billing details like hourly rates for different services and what’s included or any hidden fees. Ensure billing fits your budget.
- Request references and read reviews to gauge the agency’s reputation.
- Trust your instinct. Make sure your loved one is comfortable with the agency and caregiver.

What is a caregiver registry?
A caregiver registry is also known as a client directed model. In Texas it is important to make sure your agency, even if it is a registry, is state licensed. If so, like in the case of Ray of Sunshine, a registry gives the client the best of both worlds:
State oversight and agency compliance with all home and community services regulations while allowing the client a direct voice in their care and access to tasks such as being able to inverview and select your own caregivers, negotiate and change schedules directly with your caregiver and the knowledge that your caregiver can not be reassigned for agency convenience.
