Many people have studied in-home care, knowing that their parent's needs are quickly approaching the point where help may be needed. They've read about it. They've asked the right questions. However, one especially troubling thing they keep hearing is that the agencies don't send the same people all of the time, so that means the elder needs to continually get used to different strangers coming into their homes to help them. This is a valid complaint, and one I suggest people discuss with care agencies they may be considering.
