In the first episode of the Help Choose Home podcast, Shiela McMackin explains that years ago, when senior loved ones needed care, there were few choices and quality home care was oftentimes not one of them. Nursing homes or family members typically pieced together a plan based on necessity. At this time, care management and home care were in their infancy. But thanks to dedicated professionals like Ms. McMackin, the industry has exploded. Today, there is a variety of quality home care options for families who are looking for guidance and assistance when choosing the best care for their elderly loved one. Care managers, according to McMackin, work with families to get a sense of whether in-home care is the best option for their senior loved one. Some individuals may thrive being at home and maintaining a familiar routine. Other individuals may need the social aspects offered at a retirement or assisted living community. A care manager presents various options to the family and helps them find a solution that is best for their senior loved one. McMackin encourages families who are considering in-home care to choose an agency that participates in the Home Care Association of America (HCAOA). This organization represents more than 2,700 companies that are committed to providing quality home care for seniors.
