After a stage of life, when health issues start to grow in accordance with age, it becomes quite difficult to be self sufficient in taking proper care of oneself. This is the reason why more and more people look forward to hiring care takers when they become seniors. The care takers offer their help in the daily chores, the routine appointments, the visits around and in following proper treatment if any. Mimi Medinger was also a care giver and she loved the nobility of this profession. While in job, Mimi realized that there are various levels of care available that can be given to the seniors according to their specific needs. Determined to be give the best services any elderly could expect in their old age, she started Elite Senior Services in 2003 as a care manager. The objective of this organization is to help every senior get the right level of care in the best manner with the help of care specialists who are professionally trained in their respective arena.
The right attitude and proper training of care specialist is very important as it not only increases the mutual understanding but also allows the giver to empathize and ease the anxiety associated with the stage and the condition of any senior. At Elite Senior Services, the hiring and training of the care givers is a very careful and rigorous procedure that ensures an output of well qualified and the best professional care specialists in the non-med care. This organization provides various types of placement services that ranges from in house treatment to assisted living in the communities specifically designed for the senior people. Those suffering from critical diseases like Alzheimer/ Dementia can choose to stay in a dedicated arrangement where many other elderly suffering from the same disease stay.
When one contacts this establishment, a senior care specialist visits the prospective client and takes a short interview and a small survey to understand the requirements in light of the important factors like health concerns, cost of living, location of placement, food and services, type and size of accommodation one is looking for. The report of this survey and interview is matched with the Arizona Health Department to obtain a list of special health facilities they can provide and the ranking of these facilities with Elite Senior Services. As the main focus is on the quality, the process is designed accordingly so that the best placements suitable to the senior’s needs could be selected and he is informed about the same within twenty four hours. There are no any charges for all this research and mapping and these services are totally free for anyone seeking a placement using Elite. The revenue comes from the clients who work with Medinger to provide the placements and the services. But this does not restricts the role of the establishment and the senior care specialist always stays in touch with the senior assigned to him or her. They take care of all the proceedings, health records, service reports, seniors’ satisfaction with their services and are accessible 24 hours a day.
