Choosing the right service
Quality and flexible care
It is not uncommon for someone to very suddenly require care - almost overnight. Professional support is especially needed in this situation. How do I get competent care as quickly as possible? What contractual conditions and details should I consider? Who ensures that the independent caregiver is prepared to meet the special needs? What subsidies am I entitled to? And who guarantees that everything goes smoothly if there is a change of caregiver?
Two ways are available for choosing the appropriate caregiver when needed.
In general, people who are looking for a suitable independent caregiver contact one of the numerous Austrian placement companies. They assist not only in the search and selection of a suitable independent caregiver, but also in dealing with organisational challenges, in fulfilling bureaucratic requirements and even in applying for any subsidies and grants. Based on an extensive professional network, experience, and organisational skills, placement companies are able to find qualified caregivers who meet the relevant requirements very quickly. The pool of independent caregivers that the placement company has access to also offers the possibility of considering criteria such as sympathy and human compatibility in the selection.
Placement companies provide information on all permitted services within a caregiving relationship with the independent caregivers and state the price of their mediation.
In addition to making placements, placement companies also often offer services such as telephone accessibility, regular quality visits, and ongoing documentation of care activities - all to ensure the high quality of care. Placement companies consider themselves as providers of organisational and professional assistance for the entire duration of the caregiving relationship and are available to give advice and support.
Personal contact & recommendation
Not all independent caregivers use placement companies. In this case, personal contact and recommendation are adequate means to get in touch with them. A tip: invite independent caregivers to a no-obligation meeting to get an impression of them of them, get to know them, and discuss the specific care situation. Prior to concluding a caregiving contract, these caregivers will tell you all about their work.
Attention! Independent caregivers may not seek potential customers unsolicited for promotional purposes.
Why are the services of independent caregivers so flexible and affordable?
As independent caregiving providers, independent caregivers are able to set the time frame of their services themselves, independent of strict working hour regulations, and flexibly respond to the needs of people requiring care and their relatives. These support services are thus not only extremely flexible but also affordable.
