There are many benefits of receiving homecare services. You get to enjoy the comfort of your own home while receiving quality support to perform daily tasks from a loved one or experienced PCA (personal care assistant). But how does the process of getting started with PCA services begin?

In this week’s post, we’d like to provide a few simple steps on how to start receiving home healthcare services in Minnesota.

5 Steps to Getting the Best Homecare Services

Step 1: Determine what level of care you need: Not everyone’s homecare needs are the same. You or your loved one may require a home nurse, or you may need a PCA to assist with everyday tasks. To determine what your ideal care situation, and the level of care you require, contact Best Home Care for help.

Step 2: Check your healthcare coverage: Depending on your health insurance, certain homecare services may be covered. You’ll want to reach out to your provider for details. If your insurance does not cover home care, don’t worry! You may be eligible for coverage through another program. Contact Best Home Care for further details!

Step 3: Fill out a PCA assessment form: After determining what would be the best program for you, Best Home Care will provide a number to request a PCA assessment. From this assessment, a nurse will determine the level of home care you need and the number of hours per week you’ll receive support.

Step 4: Choose your caregiver: You will have the opportunity to choose your own caregiver, Best Home Care will even hire and train the specific person of your choosing, whether it’s a sibling, adult child, relative, or close friend.
