We believe certain people have special gifts of gentleness, dependability, empathy, patience and good judgment, and those are the people we hire.
Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 16, 2016
The Springs Living, known for building and operating hand-crafted retirement communities in the Pacific Northwest, is expanding its offering to seniors who desire to stay in their homes.
The Springs Living at Home provides at-home, private-duty caregivers to seniors looking for assistance with meal preparation, general housekeeping, pet care, errands, dressing, bathing, medication support, chronic condition management and much more.
“The company has 20 years of experience developing a compassionate and skillful care-giving workforce,” explained Sarah Silva, regional director of operations of The Springs Living at Home. “It’s a natural progression for us to reach out to seniors who prefer to live in their current homes, and need a little assistance to continue thriving. This service also brings a sense of relief to loved ones and family members.”
The Springs Living at Home draws from the compassionate employee culture and the core competencies of its parent company. The Springs Living has a 20-year history of hiring people who are successful at care-giving and a track record of finding employees who truly love caring for others. “We believe certain people have special gifts of gentleness, dependability, empathy, patience and good judgment, and those are the people we hire,” said Silva. Caregivers are overseen by a licensed registered nurse and receive three-times more training than required by the state of Oregon. Employees also undergo an extensive, nationwide background check and drug screening prior to employment.
The Springs Living at Home differentiates itself in the marketplace by offering flexible, personalized care plans. “We believe in being flexible to best meet the needs of our clients without making them pay for hours or services they don’t need,” explained Silva. “For example, we provide one-hour visits, with no weekly minimums, while other home care companies require four-hour visit minimums with weekly thresholds.”
The Springs Living at Home has launched services initially in the Portland Metro and Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley with three levels of support: companion care, personal care and complex care.
