The Value of Safe Home Care – Phil Bongiorno

The number of families utilizing home care services continues to grow in the United States.

 A greater number of family caregivers who are caring for a loved one with a chronic or debilitating health condition are turning to home care, rather than institutional care, for their long-term care needs.

Many cite the desire for a higher quality of life and independence as the reasons for the choice of care at home. Most of this care is paid for using available disposable income.

Faced with a bewildering number of choices, family caregivers more and more are turning to companies that offer them the least expensive price for care without understanding the implications of their choice. Many are hiring workers from entities that do not employ or supervise their workers, but merely “place” them in home care settings.

This presentation will provide tools to help participants understand the differences in home care service models, reinforce the value of quality home care with their respective clients and assist in determining quality and value of home care providers.

In "The Value of Safe Home Care" by Phil Bongiorno, you will:

  1. Illustrate the challenges and opportunities of family caregivers, particularly as it relates to balancing career and caregiver responsibilities;
  2. Define the variation in home care service models;
  3. Describe the steps to help determine quality and value of home care providers.
