Caregivers of Optimum Senior Care
Our caregivers are fully trained based on both state licensing requirements and Optimum's own professional standards. In addition, all caregivers are subject to background investigation and thorough reference checks. Our caregivers are hired and employed by Optimum Senior Care Corp. and they are not independent contractors. At Optimum Senior Care all caregivers are supervised by the Home Care Supervisor. The Home Care Supervisor ensures that the caregiver understands and follows the clients Care Plan. The Home Care Supervisor makes supervisory visits to evaluate the caregiver's performance and the quality of care, while updating the Care Plan on an ongoing basis.
Custom Home Care Assessment and Care Plan
Through the use of our comprehensive in-home care assessment, we coordinate our clients needs to a caregiver with the best matched personality traits and care assistance skills. We ask questions during the initial call or meeting to form a home care assessment. Based on the home care assessment we discuss your particular situation and we will create a custom care plan for you based on your individual needs. Once the Home Care Assessment is completed and the Custom Care Plan is developed we match the best available caregiver to your needs.
