Silver Lining’s large registry enables us to select a caregiver who most appropriately meets your needs. We are ready to respond immediately, placing a caregiver as soon as the need arises. If for any reason you are not completely comfortable with the caregiver initially selected, we will provide you with another.
Silver Lining has a rigorous screening process. Applicants must:
All of our caregivers attend a comprehensive orientation where they are introduced to our rigorous guidelines, and code of conduct.
Silver Lining begins with a thorough intake conference with our client and/or their family, either face-to-face in the home, hospital, or at our office, or by phone—whatever is most convenient. We learn about the personality and special needs of each client. This helps us determine the level of care— a certified nurse’s caregiver or a companion.
We will ask if there are local friends and family to provide help and support; if the patient feels isolated or is resistant to care; and whether the patient needs transportation for medical appointments, shopping, and other errands.
The client and/or family will meet with the recommended caregiver in a one-on-one interview. Your input is integral to our process and essential for us to make the best possible match.
Yes. They are bonded, screened, and have had an extensive background check.
We accept all private long-term care insurance.
Silver Lining will always provide you with a substitute caregiver—another advantage of a large registry.
