If you’re looking for home care support but you are not sure how to hire a home care worker, Best Care has the answers you need. From what to look for in the hiring process to tips for finding a family member or friend to be your PCA, we can help you through the process.

Who Can I Hire As My Home Care Worker? 

Do you have a trusted family member, neighbor, or friend who you’d want to work with? 

Once you identify the individual that you want to be your Personal Care Assistant (PCA), then Best Care can get that individual ready to work for you. 

At Best Care, we will take the county assessment and create a care plan based on the hours you are eligible to receive. After your selected PCA has gone through the steps to get hired, they are ready to work for you. 

If you don’t know of someone to be a PCA, please visit our Best Care Connection job board and look for availability of home care workers in your area.

Determining Your Level of Support

Knowing how to hire a home care worker also means understanding what you need from home care support.

Think about the following questions:

  • What sort of tasks do you want help with?
    • Do you need help with homemaking?
    • Activities of daily living?
  • Do you anticipate needing home care support for a limited amount of time or for the long term?

If you aren’t sure of the answers, then you should contact the Public Health Department for the county you live in. Our team at Best Care has helped recipients of carejust like you—obtain quality home care services for years.
