CompassCare was founded in 2014 by a world-famous geriatrician along with gerontological experts with over 150 combined years of direct clinical, academic, and professional experience in the field of older adults’ home care. CompassCare has formulated an approach to personal assistance, companionship, and concierge home care which safely empowers independence for older adults while providing peace of mind to their families.
What separates CompassCare from the typical personal care provider agency is our emphasis on providing the best in class home care concierge services for our clients. We believe this begins by hiring professional, committed caregivers of the absolute highest quality.
At Home Senior Care
Our hiring method begins with a rigorous screening process that culminates with the most highly-qualified individuals chosen for an interview with our leadership team. In order to be interviewed, a caregiving applicant must be State Department of Health licensed, Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) or Home Health Attendants (HHA). After the initial in-person interview, the best applicants are then interviewed once more. Only 4% of the caregivers we interview are chosen to enter our comprehensive training program. The caregivers we choose are passionate about working with older adults. They must have an inherent desire to contribute to our mission of enhancing the lives of older adults by providing them with as much independence as possible.
Unlike other concierge home care service companies, the caregivers we hire are not simply those with minimal direct experience looking for a job or entering the home care industry as a second career. The majority of our Compass Care Assistants (CCAs) are highly educated and trained in all facets of caring for seniors in order to foster optimal well-being for each of our valued clients.
CompassCare provides the highest level of personalized, professional and hospitality-trained personal assistance and concierge care in the market today. Focusing exclusively on evidence-based solutions and services, gathered during 30 plus years of research, our training program is unique in the industry. It equips each of our CCAs with all of the tools necessary for building and nurturing a caregiving relationship based on respect, dignity, and independence. In addition, our CCA’s are also given specialized training in Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and palliative/end of life care.
Training doesn’t end when care begins. We keep the caregivers up to date with the continuous professional development and new skills.
Senior Home Care Agency
We know that as we age, one size does not fit all when it comes to personal assistance, companionship and caregiving. Older adults have different needs, and those needs change over time. We understand that each family has unique circumstances. We are also aware that there are many constituents when providing care to our clients, and we are skilled in fostering open communication among them all. CompassCare offers a variety of home concierge care services tailored to meet the needs of each individual patient. We take the time to assess varying factors, including age and medical diagnosis and work with patients to find a home concierge care plan that’s suitable for them.
It’s important to note that our comprehensive, holistic and multi-disciplinary approach to our seniors has been shown to significantly improve the quality of life for our clients and their families. Our client services managers provide detailed, custom care packages that make their life more fulfilled. Our CCAs interact with them and give them the quality of life they deserve.
The hallmark of Compass Care is that it creates a professional role for caregivers and trains them to provide the best quality care that’s available – anywhere. We hire caregivers that have a true passion for caring for and nurturing older adults. They don’t look at this as a job. To them, it’s their profession.
Regardless of age, every person should have the excitement, joy, and desire to live life with gusto, and it’s the mission of CompassCare to instill messages of hope, cheer, courage, and liberation to older adults as they age, so the child-like wonder they were born with never departs.
