San Diego in home care services are in high demand.

Research shows that the majority of seniors prefer to stay in their homes through end of life, if they are able.

It’s human nature.  We all want to remain independent as long as we possibly can.

San Diego caregiver

However, there may come a time when your loved one can no longer care for themselves, handle their day to day affairs, or manage their household.

Moving them to an assisted living community or assisted living home is always an option.  Some elderly men and women welcome this change, or they may require it for one reason or another.

But if a senior does not move to a senior community and family needs more help, hiring a local home care company may be the answer.

A home caregiver can provide a senior with a wide range of non-medical services.

A home care professional can assist with activities of daily living:

*Dressing

*Bathing

*Toileting and/or incontinence care

*Meal preparation and eating

*Transferring from a wheelchair to bed or chair  

A home care professional can also help with:

*Light housekeeping

*Laundry

*Meal preparation

*Shopping

*Transportation

*Companionship 

How Do I Find a San Diego In Home Care Professional?

This is a difficult question to answer.  And not because families don’t have many options.  There are dozens of caregiving companies throughout San Diego county employing hundreds of caregivers.

This is a difficult question to answer because your goal is to find the right caregiver for the senior in your life.  And this is not always an easy task.

I believe the most reliable way to find the right San Diego in home caregiver is to use a professional, licensed home care agency.  Home care agencies only hire women and men who meet their rigorous requirements.  And because California added new licensing standards for home care companies in 2016.

The majority of San Diego in home care agencies have strict standards to ensure their caregivers are of high quality.  But be sure to ask all the important questions below.

I believe it’s also wise to interview not one, not two, but three home care services.

Caregivers are in high demand, and it’s very possible one company may not have the exact right caregiver for the senior in your life.

Finally, if you’d like help locating some quality home care companies in San Diego County, please call or email me, or fill out the form at the right.  I’ve worked with many good San Diego companies over the years and I’m happy to help.

Client Testimonials

I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.

Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.

She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.

To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!

At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!

I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.
