Family Choice Home Care Services Awarded the Senior Approved Certification

April 16, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Family Choice Home Care has been awarded the Senior Approved Certification validating Family Choice (located in Mt. Laurel New Jersey) as an excellent in-home care service with a substantiated history of quality care.

With rising costs of care, reports of elder abuse, and concerns about ongoing customer support, the consumer, more than ever, is demanding better information prior to making a decision to contract with an in-home care service on behalf of self, spouse, or loved one. The Senior Approved Certification offers this peace of mind to families and to seniors.

The certification process reaches beyond the traditional measures dictated by the various licensing and state surveying methods common to this industry. This controlled survey process then provides future potential clients the knowledge that other seniors and their adult family caregivers have found the service to be superior.

Family Choice is the first home care service in New Jersey to obtain certification. "The survey is voluntary, it is not mandated by the health and elder care industry. The process is designed to substantiate credible business practices as it applies to serving the elder population," explains founder and president of Senior Approved Services, Barbara Mascio.

Any family that has been faced with the daunting task of reaching beyond familiar faces to contract with an outside source knows the fear of placing an unsupervised caregiver alone with a loved one.

An adult daughter of a senior completing the survey offered, "Ö we now have peace of mind. Itís been so long since our family felt Ďokayí with dadís decision to stay home alone after momma died. Heís doing great now, thanks to the aide coming from Family Choice."

Seniors also welcomed the opportunity to state their approval of the home care services, as one senior wrote, "My wife is being cared for by a very loving lady. I could not do some of those things for her anymore without risking a fall myself. Ö God Bless you."

And elderly female client stated, "The best thing about Family Choice is now my children will let me stay home. Before I hired my helper, they were talking about putting me in a nursing home next to where they live. Thank God I found this company, I like my home and I do not want to leave it. Iím getting excellent care from my caretaker."

"Our goal is to help seniors connect with safe reliable companies that we can verify a history of quality care and/or service. We cannot hope to accomplish this lofty goal without services such as Family Choice," states Mascio.
