Local Home Care Agency Owner Shares Free Guide Explaining Home Care Options in Florida

Florida Home Care Guide | Senior Care | Disabilities Care

Given the wide range of available options, the search for in-home care in Florida can often be overwhelming. Family caregivers and loved ones may become stuck in “analysis-paralysis” or may not make the best choice for their situation due to the complexities in the Florida home care landscape. Ultimately, family caregivers and their loved ones suffer, yet the intended consequence of home care is to make life easier.

But it doesn’t have to be that difficult, according to a local expert.

Jonathan Marsh, Owner of Home Helpers and a Certified Alzheimer’s Educator, says that finding the best in-home care option for you or your loved one can be easier with a little preparation and the right tools. That’s why he created a free guide to help people find a solution that best meets their needs, which is available online at https://www.homehelpershomecare.com/bradenton/florida-home-care-guide

“Every family is different and there’s never been a cookie-cutter answer when it comes to in-home care,” said Marsh. “Factors such as the level of care you or your loved one needs, caregiver screening, scheduling, cost, and liability should all be considered when making a decision on a home care provider.”

Home Helpers  supports seniors, people with disabilities, individuals recovering from surgery, individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia, their families, and many others across Manatee County and North Sarasota County. Marsh says that a mistake some people make is moving forward with the least expensive option without fully understanding everything that’s involved.

“Frequently, I meet family caregivers who have never considered what happens if a caregiver is injured in their home,” said Marsh. “In addition, I meet family members who have not considered the hidden costs of some home care options related to crucial activities such as finding and screening good caregivers on their own, or what happens when their hired caregiver is sick or unavailable for some reason. Family caregivers need to understand these challenges and the risk that is assumed as a result of each option.”

Marsh has found that everyone is looking to make life easier, but they also want peace of mind when it comes to caring for their loved ones. 

“I always say that home care should be helpful to not only a loved one but to family caregivers who may need relief as well,” he said. “By doing some research up front, loved ones and family caregivers will all have a better experience and more successful outcomes.”

Marsh has met with families and observed the challenges with understanding home care options in the state of Florida so frequently that he created the Florida Home Care Guide, an informative and comprehensive look at everything needed to help navigate home care options in the state of Florida.

The guide is available for free to download at https://www.homehelpershomecare.com/bradenton/florida-home-care-guide.  Also, beginning in Mid-March 2018, the guide can be picked up for free in a printed format at the Home Helpers office, located at 4230 59th St W, Ste C, Bradenton, FL 34209.

“Everyone should expect only the best care for themselves or their family members,” Marsh said. “I want to ensure that they have all the information they need to make the right decision for their unique caregiving situation.”

Home Helpers offers free in-home evaluations to help families gauge what, if any, assistance they might need and to tailor a plan that specifically meets their needs and budget.
