Assisting Seniors LLC stated serving the Pensacola community in May of 2008!
Yes, in order for a business to provide services for the elderly, they must have a license with the State! The AHCA is the agency that provides the licenses. http://ahca.myflorida.com Our license number is 234443
Many agencies will, because they do not want the care giver to become more loyal to the Client than the agency. Though we have non compete forms, It is easy to be tempted to leave the agency once a caregiver gets comfortable in a Home! WE do not change the caregiver once both caregiver and Client are comfortable with each other. This is much easy on the Client, especially ALZ patients. It is also much easier for us to schedule caregivers each week! So we just ask that you do not tip or gift our caregivers and do not ask them to work for you directly!
In 1984, we had a personal experience caring for a loved one who was a stoke victim. We saw very quick how important caregivers were, not only to our Grandmother, but to our entire family! We know first hand how difficult it is to make that decision to ask someone for help inside your home. Trust is key here. We do our best to find people who have a caring heart. Skill-set alone isn't enough to insure a place on our team. Experience, patiences, a true sense of caring for others, and integrity are all equally important. We also know that issues come up in every business, but it is our promise to you, that we will go over and above to correct any issue or concern a Client or their Family may have! AGAIN, ONCE A CAREGIVER IS PLACED AND YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THEM, THEY WILL STAY UNTIL YOU NO LONGER NEED THEM OR THEY HAVE AN EMERGENCY AND NEED A LEAVE OF ABSENCES. When You make that choice, know You will have peace of mine when Assisting Seniors arrives.
"Once again, I thank you and your girls for helping us so much....I wish you & the girls good luck & prosperity in the services you offer."
“I had the good fortune to "find" Assisting Seniors at a time when I needed help with a dear friend who ended up in the hospital for a month. I called Assisting Seniors and they met with me that day. Throughout the long ordeal, they were there whenever I needed them. They provided daily care and assistance for a friend who couldn't care for herself. I don't think her recovery would have been the same had it not been for the folks from Assisting Seniors."
