When selecting an in-home caregiver, families often focus most strongly on the individual caregiver. That’s understandable; it’s essential you get the best person who is also a great fit.

But it’s just as important that you consider the caregiver’s support system – something private caregivers lack. Caregivers become so focused on the day-to-day tasks of care that they are unable to focus on the bigger picture. In the case of private caregivers, this can lead to complacency – which can have serious implications for your loved one’s health, longevity and quality of life.

That’s one reason why using a caregiving service is always the better route. With a caregiving service, you get experienced, vetted caregivers and access to a consultant who is experienced managing the delivery of long-term care. The consultant has relationships with providers of geriatric healthcare services, can answer your questions, and will stand back to objectively evaluate the care your loved one is getting and their health and wellness issues.

Significantly, you, the caregiver and your loved one get the support necessary to anticipate and address potential long-term health care concerns before they become issues.

Gerber & Associates provides more than experienced, professional, and vetted caregivers. Sid Gerber and his support staff also provide 24/7 access to their experience in handling all facets of difficult situations and to Sid’s relationships established over his 25 years in the long-term care services profession.
