5 Things You Didn’t Know a Health Care Agency Can Do For You

5 Things You Didn't Know a Health Care Agency Can Do For You

A health care agency is any agency or provider that your trust, and pay, to take care of your health care needs. Such an agency is pretty important when you’re 30 or 40, but it’s extremely important when you’re 65 or over. Seniors face more challenges and health risks than other age groups, so it’s important that seniors trust their health care agencies. It’s also important that seniors know what to expect from their health care agencies. Here are five things that you might not have known health care agencies can do for you.

1 – They work for you

OK, yes, of course you know that any health care agency you hire to look after your wellbeing works for you. But it’s remarkable how often we forget this fact when dealing with health care agencies. We always go where they tell us to go, we wait for as long as they tell us to wait. After all, they’re in charge, right? Wrong. You’re in charge. It’s your health and it’s your money. Don’t make unreasonable demands, of course, but always remember that a health care agency is there to serve you.

2 – You don’t always have to go to them

If you have an important procedure such as an MRI Scan or colonoscopy that is required, of course you will have to go to a hospital or clinic. But much of your care can be done where you would like it to be done. Say, for example, in your own home. With the exception of any procedure that requires major equipment, you can get a vast array of services and care provided to you by a health care agency in your own home.

3 – It’s not always just about your physical health

When we think of our health, we often think of it in physical terms. Why is my back stiff? Is there something wrong with my gallbladder? But our mental and emotional wellbeing is just as important as our physical wellbeing, so when we hire a health care agency, we must make sure they can take care of our minds as well. This is especially true of seniors who are at greater risk for both mental conditions and loneliness and isolation.

4 – They can make your lives better

Health care agencies shouldn’t only be focussed on making your life better by curing or treating your ailments but in every way that they can. One big problem for seniors is not so much that they can’t take care of themselves so much as they struggle to take care of their homes. Taking care of a home can be a lot of work and these errands and chores can be exhausting, painful, and even dangerous for some seniors. A health care agency that offers homemaking services is definitely one you should seek out.

5 – They can live with you

For seniors who require around the clock care but don’t want to move into an assisted living facility, some health care agencies offer live-in care. This type of care sees a care worker move into the client’s home with them. In this way, the client can receive the care they need without having to leave their home.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
