Options for Senior America has specialized in non-medical home care services for senior adults since 1989. OPTIONS offers four great programs to choose from; "Live-Out", "Live-In", and "Live-In Plus". Our "Live-Out" hourly services provide Aides to assist care recipients in their homes from 4 hours to 24 hours a day. Our popular "Live-In" program provides peace of mind to our care recipients by providing a caregiver that moves in on a long term basis at a more cost effective cost than by the hour. The "Live-In Plus" program includes an additional Aide over night for care recipients that wake up frequently.
OPTIONS provides personal care and companionship support to meet your loved ones individual needs. Many of our care recipients come to us at a stage when they are beginning to need help at home for the first time. Others are more advanced in age and more dependent on continuous assistance. Whether it is Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia, M.S., Parkinson's, stroke, hospice care, or rehabilitation following a joint replacement or broken limb, we are ready to help.
We assist our care recipients with activities of daily living (ADLs). Most of our clients are senior adults, though we are generally available to any adult who might benefit from our services, regardless of age. Serving Pinellas and Pasco Counties.
Home Care and Companionship
Not every family needs us for all of the above tasks. After evaluating the care recipients precise needs, we help the family determine what services are best for their loved one.
Options can help during transition period from hospital to home, from home to a community or any setting, on a short-term basis from overnight emergency care to few days. We understand that emergencies do come up no matter how much we plan in advance. We can also assist when extra help is needed during outpatient surgeries or medication changes. We will assist with doctor follow- up visits during this critical period to help avoid re-admission to the hospital.
What sets us apart? We are reliable, flexible, cost effective and patient centered!
From the start, we know that we need to react quickly to client needs, and that circumstances frequently require a fast response. Today, we are able to respond within 24 hours or less. Families deal directly with the owner, Farah Semia-RN, who will meet with the care recipient and family members for a free initial assessment. She will also visit regularly once the service has started to establish a strong rapport and communication with the care recipient and their family to ensure their needs are met. We also help families set up additional services such as home safety evaluations, renovations, doctor's appointments, home organization, etc.
We, at Options for Senior America-Pasco, have a passion for seniors and want to see seniors live an active, productive life no matter what they may be facing. With our supportive, experienced caregivers, we want our senior population to also be able to remain at home, wherever home may be.
Farah Semia is the Community Relations Director Options for Senior America- Pasco. With an 11-year background working in healthcare and nursing, Farah has been able to successfully integrate her passion for caring into her home healthcare business. She aspires to advocate for her patients and simultaneously give peace of mind to the families that entrust their loved ones’ wellbeing to Options for Senior America.
Farah is devoted to understanding the needs of her patients, such as the maintenance of independence and the optimization of comfort. Because she had worked extensively in the hospital as a bedside nurse, she has had first-hand experience seeing the both the discomforts of ill health and the impersonalized care that recipients often received in the facility setting. Farah holds fast to her determination to provide a service, one that can prioritize these concepts— comfort and independence. She has established this service in Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Wesley Chapel, and surrounding areas.
Farah firmly believes that the key to her success lies in enacting her desire to be a strong, empathetic advocate for her patients and their families. This is a tenet she also abides by on a personal basis by developing her interests in hiking, gardening, self-improvement, and spending time with her two sons. Farah is always ready to advocate for you and your family, and will diligently work to assure you that your family member is in the best of hands.
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.
