WELCOME

IT’S ALL ABOUT GETTING BETTER Virginia Hospital Center is proud to make a difference in the lives of our patients and our community via a steadfast commitment to quality, value and the patient experience. Recently, we were the only hospital in the Washington, DC metropolitan area to be named a 2015 Leapfrog “Top Urban Hospital.” This elite distinction is awarded nationwide to hospitals that have committed to transparency and demonstrated particular excellence in hospital safety and quality. Many programs and services we offer our patients and community exemplify our mission “To Be the Best Health System.” One example is the Hospital’s collaboration with Mayo Clinic, which continues to benefit patients [see p. 4]. Another is the Safe Transition for Hospital Patients Program [see p. 7], which enables patients discharged from Virginia Hospital Center to receive Philips Lifeline Medical Alert service for their first two months home, at no cost. It’s the only program of its kind in this area, and it facilitates patients’ safe recovery and independent living. The Hospital is pleased to provide this Senior Resource Guide, and we hope that its information is of value to our patients and their families. Sincerely, James B. Cole President & CEO

Tips to Prepare for a Visit to Virginia Hospital Center A well-planned visit to the Hospital helps you focus your energy and attention on your healthcare needs and questions. Whether the visit is for an appointment or an emergency, there are a few ways to keep it from being chaotic. By preparing a few simple things, you will be able to focus on the role you play in your own healthcare or the healthcare of a family member or friend.

Preparing for an Appointment or a Visit to the Hospital: Prepare what you can before you arrive. • Always carry your photo ID and insurance card(s). • If the visit is to see a physician, plan ahead of time and see what paperwork needs to be completed for the appointment. • If you are visiting a family member staying in the Hospital, know the visiting hours, where to park and if you need any legal documents should you have medical power of attorney. • If the visit entails an outpatient service (i.e. radiology, laboratory or therapy visit), make sure you have your physician’s order with you. • Have your medical records up to date and readily accessible to share with your clinician.

Know where you are going. •W  hen you make your appointment, ask if there is a particular building or zone you should look for. • Inquire about the parking garage that is closest to your destination. Building signs and landmarks are helpful to know before you get into your car. • Bring exact change ($5) or a credit card for parking, if you’ll be driving to the Hospital.

The Hospital staff is there to help you. Virginia Hospital Center Senior Health Department 703.558.6859

Community Members: Giving Back While Staying Active

F

or Ray Husson and his wife, Irene, the key to a happy and healthy retirement lifestyle has been getting out into the community and giving back. Through the Virginia Hospital Center Senior Health Department, Ray and Irene have found the help they needed—and have been able to help countless others. Irene became involved with Virginia Hospital Center when she retired. After nearly 30 years with the Department of Justice, Irene found the Senior Health Department’s Ballston Common Mall Walkers following a frightening incident. “I was walking along Lee Highway one day, and I was shot by a bunch of young kids,” Irene recalled. “It wasn’t serious. We’re not sure if it was an air gun or a BB gun or what, but I was OK, just very bruised. That led me to what has become my sanctuary.” Irene has now been a member of the wellness program for 28 years. “I’ve developed a lot of friendships, and they have been a great support. The group has meant so much to me— emotionally and physically.” Due to renovations at Ballston Common Mall, the program recently transitioned to Walk-Fit at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City. Irene continues to be an active walking member and enjoys benefits from exercise and socialization. In addition, Irene regularly attends the monthly Healthy Aging Lecture Series offered by the Senior Health Department and has found her primary care doctor, several specialists and additional senior service providers through this community resource. Ray became an active member of Virginia Hospital Center under different circumstances. At the age of 75, Ray had no plans to retire. He was

still working as an Occupational Safety and Health Management Consultant. Unfortunately, as was the case for many workers, Ray was forced into retirement, as his long-time government client let him go due to the market crash. Despite his best efforts, there was no work to be found.

“I’ve developed a lot of friendships, and they have been a great support. The group has meant so much to me—emotionally and physically.” — Irene Husson, member of the Virginia Hospital Center Mall Walkers “He was becoming desperate in his transition from full-time work to retirement,” Irene said. “One day I saw him in the living room looking out the window and counting the cars passing by. I knew he had to get involved.” Ray needed to get out of the house, and Irene encouraged him to

start volunteering. Irene turned to the Hospital for help. Ray became an Auxiliary member and he has never looked back. “This has really filled the void for me. I meet a lot of people here,” he said. Ray now volunteers as an Auxiliary wheelchair escort and works for the Senior Health Department to perform in-home service calls for their Philips Lifeline subscribers. His service calls and wheelchair rides are more like friendly visits, and he easily connects with subscribers and patients. “I’m as old as they are, and I get so much out of visiting with them,” he said. “I have fun with them, and I listen to them, and we laugh a little together.” With the help of Virginia Hospital Center’s Senior Health Department, Ray and Irene Husson have found resources, gained friends and made some real connections. The Hussons are certainly giving back to their community—and they are getting a lot out of it as well.

Supporting Our Community Virginia Hospital Center Foundation Lifeline Assistance Fund Recognizing the value and need for the Philips Lifeline service for vulnerable seniors in our area, Virginia Hospital Center Foundation established the Lifeline Assistance Fund in 2009. Through this fund, we are able to lower the monthly cost by 50% and assist at-risk community members who otherwise may not be able to afford the service, providing the opportunity for seniors to remain in their home with confidence and safety. Our goal is to continuously enroll low-income individuals into the Lifeline Assistance Fund each year, and to support each subscriber for as long as he or she is able to use the Lifeline service. Applications for the fund can be found on-line. You can support the fund by calling 703.717.GIFT (4438) or email foundation@virginiahospitalcenter.com.

Virginia Hospital Center Safe Transition for Hospital Patients Virginia Hospital Center is the only hospital in the DC Metro area to offer the Philips Lifeline Safe Transition for Hospital Patients (STHP) program. The transition from Hospital to home is a critical time for many patients, especially during the first few weeks following discharge. Early intervention minimizes potential complications from a fall or other medical crises. Through the STHP program, “at-risk” patients being discharged home from Virginia Hospital Center have the ability to get the Philips Lifeline Medical Alert System at no cost for their first two months home. Staff from the Senior Health Department coordinate the installation within two days of discharge in order to ensure the patient has a safe recovery and can maintain their independence. For more information, please call 703.558.6859.

“The Lifeline Assistance Fund allows my low-income clients to continue living in their own homes rather than in an institution. The team treats my clients with the highest level of professionalism and respect. They are so responsive to my clients’ needs! Recently, I had a client who needed the Lifeline service right away, and the Virginia Hospital Center installed it in her home within 24 hours of her request. A few of my low-income clients have fallen and used their Lifelines to get immediate help, thereby avoiding the sometimes serious health consequences of lying on the floor for a long period of time. On behalf of this population, I thank the Lifeline Assistance Fund for its generous support. The Lifeline Assistance Fund doesn’t just improve my clients’ lives; it saves them.” — Jackie Igoe, LCSW

Marjan Daneshmand, Outpatient Pharmacist

Medications and Pharmacy Questions to Ask You should be able to answer the following questions before taking any new medication. Although each medication comes with instructions, your doctor and pharmacist should be available to answer any or all of the following questions in more depth and in language that is easy to understand. What is the name of the medication and what is it supposed to do? You should know the names of all the medications–both prescription and nonprescription–you take, so you can inform each doctor you see. It is also important to know what each medication looks like. When and how do I take it? You need to know how often to take your medication, if the medication is best taken on an empty stomach or with food, and if you should take it at the same time each day. For how long should I take it? Your prescription order indicates the length of time you should take the 12

medication and whether refills are available. Skipping doses or stopping medication to save money or because you “feel better” can result in health problems requiring more expensive treatment in the future. Should I avoid alcohol, any other medications, food and/or activities? Certain foods or alcohol may also interact with your medications. Some drugs can cause drowsiness and may affect activities such as driving. Should I expect any side effects? All medications can cause side effects, but they are not necessarily serious. Your pharmacist will inform you of the most common side effects. If you experience any unexplained effects, contact your doctor or pharmacist. What if I forget to take my medications? Be sure you know the answer to this question when you receive the prescription. The decision to take a missed dose depends on the drug.

• Virginia Hospital Center • Senior Resource Guide • 703.558.6859

Don’t panic and don’t take a double dose unless you are specifically directed to do so by your doctor. Is there a generic version of the medication? Not all medications have generic counterparts. If a generic version is available, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has judged it to be equivalent to the brand name product, and it can save you up to half the cost. How should I store my medications? Proper storage ensures a medication’s effectiveness. The bathroom medicine cabinet is not an ideal storage place. Heat and humidity can adversely affect your medication. Most medications require a cool and dry storage location, and some need refrigeration. Does this medication replace anything else I was taking? Make sure you understand if this medication is replacing another medication.


Patient Support Services

Virginia Hospital Center Supports Patient Rights Palliative Care The Palliative Care Service at Virginia Hospital Center is dedicated to improving quality of life for patients with severe illnesses or health problems. Palliative Care is special healthcare that can ease pain, other symptoms and side effects throughout all stages of illness and/ or treatment. The VHC interdisciplinary team addresses the psychosocial needs to help you and your family cope with your illness, as well as emotional, practical and spiritual concerns. It is important to better understand your diagnosis and choices for care. For more information, please call 703.558.8501.

Chaplain Services The Chaplaincy Team is the spiritual arm of Virginia Hospital Center’s patient healthcare support. We believe that spirituality, in the broadest sense, is an integral part of a holistic approach to health care, where the physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs of the patient are addressed. Spiritual, emotional and companion care for patients and families is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by the Chaplain Team, either on duty or on-call. Patients are personally visited in every department by chaplains. Support is non-denominational, caring for everyone. For a visitation or information, please call 703.558.6128 or 703.558.6182.

Advance Directive Planning ahead for medical decisions can make difficult situations more manageable for patients and their families. Advance planning is the only way to ensure that a patient’s wishes are followed in the event of a medical emergency or long-term illness. Under a Virginia law called the Healthcare Decisions Act, adults may sign a document that makes their choices about treatment known to their doctor and family in advance. This document is known as an Advance Directive. Virginia Hospital Center supports the aims of both the Virginia Healthcare Decisions Act and the Patient Self Determination Act. The Patient Relations and Pastoral Care Offices provides one-onone appointments to help you complete an Advance Directive. For an appointment, please call 703.558.6195 or 703.558.6128. See page 28-29 for a free pull out Advance Medical Directive.

Understanding Medicare Medicare’s Alphabet Soup: Know the Options and the Coverage Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease. Medicare provides important benefits for most Americans who are age 65 and older. When enrolling in Medicare, changing plans or determining benefit coverage, consumers need to fully understand the many different types of Medicare plans. The process of selecting the best plan begins with learning more about all the options. Medicare Part A, or Hospital Insurance, covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care and some home health care. Medicare Part B, or Medical Insurance, covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies and preventive services. Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are health plans offered by private companies that contract with Medicare to provide subscribers with all their Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. Most Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part D, or prescription drug coverage, adds coverage for medications to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Fee-for-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. These plans are offered by insurance companies and other private companies approved by Medicare. Other Services: Beyond the Medicare plans outlined above, there are also additional options available to individuals who meet specific criteria. Secondary Insurance (includes Medigap) may also be used to pay medical costs not covered by Medicare A or B. Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid programs vary from state to state. Information adapted from Medicare’s Website, www.medicare.gov. Additional information is available online. Free, personalized health insurance counseling is available through local State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIP). For more information or assistance, visit shiptacenter.org.

Resources Resources to Meet Every Need

Professional Assistance May Be the Solution—No Matter What the Problem Is

W

hen it comes to life’s biggest decisions, most challenging transitions, and largest opportunities, we generally turn to professionals for help. From planning a move to planning for the financial future, there are professionals who can help with every step of life’s journey. With an increasing number of credentialed professionals specifically trained to meet a diverse array of needs, there is generally a professional for that—no matter what that is. Many of these professionals work directly with Aging Life Care Managers to help clients achieve their best quality of life and to deliver the best possible results for families. In fact, in many instances, care managers will recommend professionals who become a vital part of a client’s care team. No matter what stage of life you find yourself in or what your age, there is never any reason to face life’s changes and challenges alone. Enlist the help of a professional and get the help you need. Some of the more prominent categories of professionals are detailed below. The tables on the following pages list dozens of options that are available in these and other categories. For specific information on available services, please contact the individual providers. Aging in Place Solutions Need to update your home to meet your changing needs? Want some help running errands? Have medical needs that require special equipment? There are individuals and businesses available to meet all your needs and allow you to remain safely in your home. Successfully aging in place frequently requires additional assistance from professionals to ensure that all daily needs are met and the home environment remains safe.

Assistive Technology In today’s connected world, we are all accustomed to turning to technology for solutions. Help managing the challenges that come with aging or disability is no different. There are many technologies that can help you with all types of needs—from staying in contact with family to hearing better. Technology professionals can help clients find specific technologies that can improve their living environments and their lifestyles. Downsizing/Moving Solutions Moving is one of life’s most monumental tasks. Add in the fact that many seniors have been in their homes for two, three, or more decades, and moving becomes even more daunting. Whether you need to declutter and downsize in preparation for a move to a retirement community, or just have your home deep cleaned to provide a safer living environment, there are professionals available to help. When it comes time to sell the family home, there are also professionals available to prepare the home and ensure that you get top market value. Medical Solutions Sometimes medical needs require the help of a specialist or a business

that caters to specific conditions or illnesses. Professionals can help you with a wide range of needs—from vision services to hospice care to mental health care and everything in between. Planning Solutions Planning ahead for financial and legal needs is important at every stage of life, but never more so than during retirement. Financial and legal needs frequently become more complex with age. You may need help with tasks ranging from paying bills and managing paperwork to estate planning and managing Medicaid. Professionals are available who specialize in each of these areas and can make meeting your financial and legal needs easy. Solutions for Professionals From Aging Life Care Managers to Elder Law Attorneys to assisted living and homecare providers, all professionals who work with senior clients and their families need specialized training to ensure that they have the most up-to-date information and education. Professionals who train their peers help to ensure that all seniors get the best possible assistance with all their needs.

The Neighborhood You Dream About The Village Movement is Prompting Communities to Think About Creative Solutions for Aging in Place Imagine you are living in a community where you know your neighbors. Imagine that your patio needs weeding, and you prefer not to do it. In this neighborhood, a simple phone call can have someone over to take care of your weeding. Perhaps you need some home repairs, or you are returning home from the hospital after surgery and need some assistance. In this neighborhood, you can get assistance from trusted volunteers and providers with one phone call. This type of neighborhood is becoming a reality, and the Washington, D.C. region and the state of Maryland are the launching pad for several. How it All Started Nearly 90 percent of Baby Boomers say they want to stay in their homes and close to family and friends as long as possible, according to a survey by AARP. The challenge these individuals face, however, is that if they do nothing to prepare for future needs, they may not be able to continue living in their homes as long as they would like. Residents of Beacon Hill, a downtown Boston neighborhood, responded to the challenge of staying in their community by joining their neighbors to take control over where and how they will live in the years to come. They formed a non-profit, Beacon Hill Village, which serves those aged 50+ in central Boston, to take advantage of social, cultural and wellness activities without leaving their homes. The various services provided are designed to respond to the members’ specific needs and wants and include concierge services, comprehensive home care, home repair, house cleaning, grocery shopping, transportation and other services.

novative concept has also grown exponentially. Hundreds of other communities have been founded based on the same principles in the United States and beyond. In fact, by the tenth anniversary of the original Beacon Hill, more than 60 Villages had opened. These Villages are all connected through the Villageto-Village Network, which is a means for villages to learn from each other, exchange ideas, pool resources and share tools.

individual villages is customized to the needs and wants of the specific neighborhood. Most of these groups have done informal and formal research to determine what the members want, and are designing their program to address those needs. Consequently, no two programs will be exactly the same.

Village to Village Network is a national organization that supports the Village movement. This is a membership organization with a wide variety of support available to Where it is Going members. More information is available at The original Beacon Hill has now Customized to the Neighborhood The design and implementation of www.vtvnetwork.org. grown to nearly 400 members. The in28

Incapable of making an informed decision means that I am unable to understand the nature, extent and probable consequences of a proposed healthcare decision or unable to make a rational evaluation of the risks and benefits of a proposed healthcare decision. The Virginia Code for Advance Directives requires that two physicians are necessary to determine incapacity. One is your attending physician and another is a doctor not involved in your care. Both physicians must fully examine you and document their findings in your medical record.

Retirement Living Communities

Continuing Care Communities offer support for changing health needs

CThe

ontinuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) offer long-term contracts that guarantee lifelong shelter and access to specified health care services. A staff of medical professionals is on hand to provide different levels of care, from independent living to assisted living and nursing care. A member can move up or down this continuum of care for the rest of their life. Most CCRCs establish requirements for incoming residents based on age, financial assets, income level and physical health. Residents are typically expected to move in while they are still independent to get to know the community. In return for guaranteed lifelong shelter, amenities and health care, residents usually pay a lump-sum entrance

The

fee and regular monthly payments. There are three basic types of CCRC contracts. An extensive contract covers shelter, residential services, and amenities, plus unlimited long-term nursing care without an increase in monthly payments (except for increases related to operating costs and inflation adjustments). An extensive contract spreads the risk of catastrophic health care costs among all residents, so that no single person faces financial ruin. Entrance fees and monthly costs under this contract are typically higher than those under modified or fee-forservice contracts. A modified continuing care contract covers shelter, residential services and amenities, plus a specified amount of nursing care. After the specified amount has been received, the resident can re-

ceive care at daily or monthly nursing care rates. A fee-for-service continuing care contract covers shelter, residential services and amenities. While emergency and short-term nursing care is usually included in the contract, access to longterm nursing care is guaranteed only at daily rates. Entrance and monthly fees are lower because residents are responsible for all long-term nursing and health care costs. Most CCRCs provide a variety of residential services that may be covered by monthly fees or be available at extra cost, depending on the contract. Visit the CCRCs you are considering with a trusted family member. Immerse yourself as much as possible in the daily life, and assess the management’s philosophy and its relationship with residents.

Most offer a variety of meal plans, including the option to prepare meals in your own apartment. Most independent living communities do not offer health care services (such as those provided, for example, by assisted living communities and skilled nursing/rehabilitation facilities), but some independent living communities are affiliated with health care facilities that can provide such care when it is needed. Residents also have the option of purchasing home health care services from outside providers to whom they may have grown accustomed.

What is Independent Living? Independent living communities are residential communities for active older adults who want an enjoyable lifestyle free of the worries and trouble of home maintenance. They are similar to any apartment, condominium or singlefamily development, except that they provide special services, including se-

curity—an important consideration for many residents. Most independent living communities are fully secured, with staff members greeting and screening all visitors around the clock. Residents can leave home for extended periods of time knowing that their living quarters will be safe. As many individuals at this stage in their lives are looking to pursue new hobbies and interests with their free time, the activities and amenities available at a community are a major factor for potential residents. Several independent living communities provide a full range of activities such as shopping trips, outings to cultural events and organized gatherings that promote socialPrivate Transportation

he more years you put behind you, the more worries you may have about continuing to maintain your home. When you do not need medical supervision, but feel like washing your hands of endless home-related tasks, independent living is an option that can help.

Assisted Living Communities Providing supportive services

A

ssisted Living communities offer housing and a variety of supportive services delivered by qualified staff members. As opposed to independent living communities, health care services are available at assisted living communities. The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) notes that assisted living is “a unique transition from independent living without care” that “helps seniors enjoy an improved quality of life with independence and care combined.” Community amenities vary widely but can include private units, state-ofthe-art facilities, beautifully decorated common areas, barber shops and beauty parlors, pharmacies, physical therapy services, recreation rooms, li-

braries, gardening areas, and fitness centers. Who Needs It? Residents of assisted living usually include anyone who needs some help with the activities of daily life. These include eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting, medication management and walking. Most communities offer three meals a day served in a common dining area. Many also offer some type of assistance with transportation. Housekeeping and laundry services are standard offerings. Staff members are available to meet resident needs 24 hours a day. Most communities are equipped with security systems, and emergency call systems are often available in all residences. For residents with more

acute health care needs, such as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, special units and/or specially trained staff members are often available. Choosing a Community First and foremost, consider the needs and desires of the potential resident. Narrow the search by reviewing a list of all the local communities. Request a brochure from your top choices, as well as other specific information such as the resident agreement or contract, a list of services and amenities, detailed prices, staffing information, admission and discharge criteria, and community rules. Visit a facility more than once to get a complete feel of the lifestyle at the community. Talk with staff and residents and tour the entire facility.

Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers Specialized care for individuals who need daily assistance

W

hile some individuals are able to continue running their households with little assistance, there are those who may have debilitating physical or emotional conditions that require care beyond what family or professional home care aides can provide. What is Nursing Care? At a nursing home, care is administered by professionals under the direction of a physician. Many facilities also offer sub-acute, respite, rehabilitation and other short-term care. Rehabilitation services can be especially helpful for individuals who are recovering from surgery, an illness or any other life-changing event. These homes serve as permanent

residences for individuals who are too sick or frail to live at home, or as temporary facilities during a recovery period after a surgery or illness. Who Pays for Nursing Care? Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and personal assets are all used under various circumstances to pay for services in a nursing care facility. If a facility is not certified by Medicare and Medicaid, the care will have to be paid for entirely with personal funds. In general, Medicare pays for skilled nursing care following hospitalization for the same illness or condition at 100 percent of the cost for days 1 – 20. Some long-term care insurance pays for nursing home care; insurance payments are usually a fixed amount for a specified number of qualified days.

The basic daily rate is the standard charge the nursing home bills to all residents, which covers the fundamental services every resident receives, including rent for the room, housekeeping, meals and general nursing care. What to Look for in Nursing Care Before choosing a home, contact the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program of your Area Agency on Aging. Ombudsman programs promote the highest quality of life and care for residents of nursing facilities and can help families and staff with inquiries and complaints. Visit your prospective communities at different times of day. Talk with residents. Be persistent about getting your questions answered.

Understanding Home-Based Care in Virginia

I

n Virginia, home care organizations, certified home health agencies, and licensed and certified hospice programs are reviewed by the Virginia Department of Health Office of Licensure and Certification. There are several types of agencies in Virginia that provide these services. For individuals needing home-based care, it is important to first determine what type(s) of help you need to narrow your search of agencies and find one that will meet your specific needs. The following information from the Virginia Department of Health Office of Licensure and Certification provides a look at the different agencies and their state regulations. Home Health Agencies Home health agencies are public or private agencies, organizations or

parts of agencies or organizations that meet the requirements for participation in Medicare under 42 CFR 440.70 (d). This indicates these federally-certified agencies provide skilled nursing services and at least one other therapeutic service, e.g. physical, speech or occupational therapy; medical social services; or home health aide services, and they also meet the capitalization requirements under 42 CFR 489.28. An agency may choose to be exempt from state licensure through certification in one of four ways: • The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) Certification; • Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) Certification; • Medicaid Personal Care Certification; • Medicaid/Medicare Certification.

When trying to find a home health agency, ask for their license number. Be specific in asking for the license number issued by the Virginia Department of Health, and not the number for their license to operate a business. Home Care Organization The code of Virginia defines a home care organization (HCO) as “a public or private organization, whether operated for profit or not for profit, that provides, at the residence of a patient or individual in the Commonwealth of Virginia, one or more of the following services: 1) home health services, including services provided by or under direct supervision of any health care professional under a medical plan of care in a patient’s residence on a visit or hourly basis to patients who Continued on page 53

Com-

panion services can include providing non-routine home maintenance, along with assisting individuals unable to care for themselves with transportation, meal preparation, shopping, light housekeeping, companionship and household management. Also included is assistance with bathing areas the client cannot reach, fastening client’s clothing, combing hair, brushing dentures, shaving with an electric razor, and providing stabilization to a client while walking. Homemaker services, however, do

not include feeding, bed baths, transferring, lifting, putting on braces or other supports, or cutting nails and shaving with a blade. Such services would need to be provided by a licensed HCO or HHA in Virginia.

Questions to Ask When Hiring Paid Caregivers If facing this decision, the following questions will help in making a safe and educated decision: 1. If the hired caregiver becomes ill or otherwise unavailable, what alternate arrangements can be made?

5. Are criminal history background checks, state abuse registry checks, and prior work reference checks completed?

2. Are social security, federal and state taxes, and unemployment insurance paid so the family is not legally responsible?

6. Is there bonding and insurance in place that would cover any injury to the client, damage, or theft? When an agency says they are “bonded,” family members should be sure that this covers injury or damages related to the caregiver(s) working in the home.

3. Is there verification that the paid caregivers can legally work in the U.S.? 4. If the hired caregiver is injured, who is responsible? Remember that many homeowners’ insurance policies exclude such injuries via “domestic employee exclusions.”

7. Assuming family is not available to supervise paid caregivers at all times, will there be documentation that substantiates the completion of services?

If the adult caregiver does not have the time or resources available to answer these important questions, the services of a professional home care agency or adult day care center may be the right solution.
