We are constantly screening candidates for care provider recruitment. We believe that it is essential to keep a readily available pool of good caregivers to choose from. Each and every applicant for a Home Health Aide position at OPTIONS undergoes a thorough screening process before they are added to our roster as independent contractors to OPTIONS. We first conduct a face-to-face interview of each applicant by a senior staff member. During the interview, we determine the applicant’s qualifications, assess their talents, and evaluate their interpersonal attributes and special skills. A competence test determines their level of knowledge, and a minimum of two relevant references must be thoroughly checked. All of these elements of the screening process must be satisfied before we add applicants to our roster. Finally, we conduct a criminal background check on each applicant before we consider them ready for client assignments.
Our family of care providers is large in numbers and rich in diversity. We have hundreds of Home Health Aides, Certified Nursing Assistants, Companions, License Practical Nurses and Registered Nurses and they are of all ages, backgrounds and types of personality. This is our most valuable resource which enables us to select that special aide for you — someone low key or quiet, someone cheerful, a take-charge type, a conversationalist, and the list of attributes goes on.
A good aide for your need, introduced to you promptly, thoroughly screened for the right background, bonded, insured for injuries by worker’s compensation insurance, covered by liability insurance, and supervised by an expert and resourceful office team. At Options, we call this "peace of mind."
Though the majority of our patients require care to be provided in the comfort of their own home, Options For Senior America is equipped to provide care for your loved one even if they no longer live at home.
