OPTIONS is dedicated to helping senior adults cope with the expediencies of everyday life.

Background & Focus
From its beginning in 1989, Options for Senior America was destined to become the leading home care agency on the East Coast. That is because Options never lost sight of what its clients wanted.

Our clients want an agency that:

  • Has the highest possible standards in screening their caregivers
  • Maintains substantial rosters of caregivers
  • Maintains highly experienced, friendly and courteous office staff
  • Comes up with the right Aide for every set of circumstances
  • Responds to emergencies quickly, day or night
  • Provides convenience and practical solutions at every turn

The result has been a uniquely qualified organization with unmatched human resources and neighborhood offices covering hundreds of communities across the Eastern United States.
Our Pledge

OPTIONS is dedicated to helping senior adults cope with the expediencies of everyday life. We do that in the comfort and safety of our care recipients’ homes. We provide distant or busy families with a break from daily caregiving responsibilities, and reassure them that their loved ones are attended to by the team that has the most experience and the widest resources.

Screening
We are constantly screening candidates for care provider recruitment. We believe that it is essential to keep a readily available pool of good caregivers to choose from. Each and every applicant for a Home Health Aide position at OPTIONS undergoes a thorough screening process before they are added to our roster. We first conduct a face-to-face interview of each applicant by a senior staff member. During the interview, we determine the applicant’s qualifications, assess their talents, and evaluate their interpersonal attributes and special skills. A competence test determines their level of knowledge, and a minimum of two relevant references must be thoroughly checked. All of these elements of the screening process must be satisfied before we add applicants to our roster. Finally, we conduct a criminal background check on each applicant before we consider them ready for client assignments.

Someone Special For Your Need
Our family of care providers is large in numbers and rich in diversity. We have hundreds of Home Health Aides, Certified Nursing Assistants and Companions, and they are of all ages, backgrounds and types of personality. This is our most valuable resource which enables us to select that special aide for you — someone low key or quiet, someone cheerful, a take-charge type, a conversationalist, and the list of attributes goes on.

Options for Senior America specializes in home care services for senior adults. Our “live-out” services provide Aides to assist care recipients at their homes from 4 hours to 24 hours a day, and our popular live-in services offer caregivers who move in with the care recipients on a long term basis.

Our Daily Duties
We assist our care recipients with activities of daily living (ADLs). Most of our clients are senior adults, though we are generally available to any adult who might benefit from our services, regardless of age. Here is a list of the typical areas in which our caregivers, hired as independent contractors, provide assistance:

  • Personal Hygiene
  • Grooming
  • Toileting
  • Bathing and/or Showering
  • Transferring & Ambulating
  • Light Housekeeping
  • Meal Planning & Preparation
  • Indoor/Outdoor Errands
  • Companionship
  • Medication Reminders
