Professional Caregivers

There is no other occupation that truly reflects the saying, “Our employees are the heartbeat of this organization!” than that of a Symphony Caregiver. Symphony Senior Home Care seeks out caregiver candidate’s that exhibit the same dedication and passion that keeps senior living safely and comfortably in the surrounding of their own home, as reflected by its management team. Before matching skilled, knowledgeable, and compassionate caregiver’s with each client, our process starts with a thorough criminal background screening, social security verification, and personal and professional reference checks.

Symphony Senior Home Care is committed to accurately matching each client with one of our highly trained caregiver’s. Utilizing in depth, multi-leveled personal interest survey for each caregiver into our ongoing training program, we can profile the strengths and interests of every caregiver. Then, we incorporate pertinent information based on our Client Personal Interests, and Activities Survey. And only then, do we start the process of matching personal interests, the medical and physical skills of our caregiver’s with the needs of each client.
