Home care service involves looking after aging people or those who have chronic health problems. If you want to start an in-home personal care service, the attached video explains what to expect.
Expect staff turnover or instances where your employee doesn’t turn up at the client’s home. With the right system in place, you can immediately send a replacement or provide the service yourself.
Be hands-on, even if it’s your own business. Be prepared to take on a lot of duties, especially at the start. Until your business has grown and you can hire more staff, you must be available throughout because you are providing round-the-clock care.
Your paperwork should be up to date. Ensure that you stick to the state regulations. File your contracts, emergency contact forms, nurse assessments, and employee evaluation forms appropriately so they are ready for inspection at any time.
In-home personal care service can be a successful business, but you must allow it to grow and not expect instant gratification. Always follow your policies and procedures. If you prepare yourself mentally and you’re sure this is a calling you want to follow, you will be successful.
