How to get started with a Home Care Provider for Your Elderly Parent

If your loved one needs some extra assistance, in-home care is a convenient solution that allows them to maintain their independence and stay safely in their own home. Getting started with a home care provider for a loved one may seem overwhelming, but Home Care Book’s simple and straightforward process helps make it easy and stress-free. Just follow these six simple steps to get started:


1. Call to Learn More about In-Home Care Options

Our knowledgeable admission team will answer any questions you or your loved ones may have and help you determine which type of care fits your loved one’s needs and lifestyle. To get started on your home care plan, please call us at 214-377-0711, or complete this convenient online form to help us better understand your needs.

2. Schedule a Professional Assessment

A quality senior home care plan begins with listening to your needs. Our assessments are free, and we will discuss your specific requirements and help you determine which type of care is right for you


3. Review Your Care Plan and Ask Questions until You’re Comfortable

Home Care Book’s compassionate and experienced admissions team will create a specialized home care plan that is unique to your needs and living situation. Home Care Book designs all elder care plans free of charge.


4. Understand Payment Options

Once we have created a home care plan that is right for you, we will discuss rates, financial options and answer any questions you may have about billing.

Typically, our services are paid out-of-pocket by you. Medicare and Medicaid do not pay for services provided by Home Care Book. In some cases, long-term care insurance or VA Pensions may cover the cost of our services. We will work with your long-term care insurer or the VA to explore the coverage options that may be available to you.


5. Get Matched with a Personal Caregiver

We believe it is a partnership with your home care provider, not a transaction. We will match you with professional, compassionate caregivers that fit your specific needs, lifestyle and personality. Home Care Book is very selective in the caregiver hiring process. We are licensed, insured and bonded to provide senior home care in the state of Texas, and prior to being hired, all of our caregivers must:

  • Possess extensive home care experience
  • Pass criminal, employment and reference checks
  • Complete a survey that measures 7 work-related personality traits
  • Be subject to Home Care Book’s drug testing policy
  • Pass Home Care Book’s training program


6. Begin Home Care — and Evaluate Your Loved One’s Progress

We remain in contact with you before and after the start of care.  We have regular communication with our clients and our staff.  This is to ensure our care plans remain current and are updated to include any changes.

Our caregivers are dedicated to providing compassionate, professional home care services. From bathing and toileting to transportation, companionship and coordinating care with your healthcare providers and more, we are committed to meeting all of your in-home care needs. Our knowledgeable care management team is also here to listen to any questions or concerns you may have and will respond to your inquires in a timely and professional manner. Be sure to check in with your loved one consistently, and ask them for feedback on their experience with their caregiver.
