About the agency

Options for Senior America has been a leading home care provider since 1989. Options most recently received the 2016 Best in Home Care award.

As a person responsible for a senior adult, you will find the Options team knowledgeable and resourceful. Together, we successfully resolve hundreds of family needs every year, some of a very complex nature. Once we match up a client with a caregiver, our quality assurance programs are intended to ensure that we are indeed able to bring additional comforts to that client's everyday life.

Options offers a variety of flexible schedules to accommodate whatever schedule best suits each family's needs with programs ranging from 2 to 24 hours per day.

Many of our families inform us of their needs and ask us to select the most suitable caregiver to start. However, if you prefer to have us assist you,we can send one of our home care consultants to the care recipient's home for a 'needs assessment visit' at no charge or obligation to you. Additionally, if you desire ongoing service, we will be happy to arrange for an interview of our caregiver so that you know in advance who the individual is and...

I will always be thankful for Options

I will always be thankful for Options. When my dad suddenly passed away...my sisters and I tried to pick up the 24hr care my mom needed. With limited vision, diabetes, dementia and frequent falls...she could not be left alone. We heard about Options and they came to meet my mom and us...it was an instant connection. I recently told [name removed] they were "Angels that came to us in one of the darkest times of our lives". These girls took excellent care of mom. They became family...sisters...and daughters to my mom. They brought her to picnics..parties and holidays. She loved all of them. [Names removed] were great to work with and the girls they sent were so loving and caring. [Names removed] were there at the end and you couldn't ask for more devoted "daughters". [Name removed] stayed all night with my mom the last time she was in the hospital. I can't say enough about this Agency. They will always be very special to this family.

Great care and professional and attentive staff and caregivers.

My mother has had caregiving services from Options for Senior Americans for over a year now and we couldn't be more pleased. The caregivers are excellent and the whole staff is very professional and attentive to my mother's needs. She was determined to stay in her own home after turning 90 and no longer being able to drive. But that meant she would be living alone with none of her children living close by. I really didn't think this was a possibility until I heard of Options for Senior America. From our initial meeting and interview we were thrilled with all the services offered: transportation to appointments, church and social engagements, as well as help with grocery shopping and other activities, and all for a reasonable and affordable cost. We were matched with a primary caregiver who has been more efficient and caring than we ever could have expected. When my mother had a health crisis, Options staff were there to assess her condition and get her immediately to the hospital. If I had known that such a great service was available years ago I would not have worried so much about my mother being able to continue living as she wished in her own home. The best news is that my mother's health has actually improved with the help of Options personnel and she is happy and secure. We are so grateful.

After years and years of dealing with various different agencies for my mom and her chronic issues, I came upon [name removed] and her staff. They are polite, efficient, knowledgeable, and empathetic. If you have an urgent care matter, or some questions that needed answering, she would return calls and help to ease our fears. The care provided is phenomenal. If you are in need for a caring caregiver for your love one, consider Options. This place provides full-service and very patient centered. Thank you [name removed] and staff for all that you do. It will never go unrecognized. [name removed]

Great service

The caregivers that were there for my mom were fantastic. It was important to me that my mom had the same caregivers on a consistent basis. She had 2 that were there daily. They both treated her with dignity and respect. They worked with her and encouraged her to try. The agency was very accommodating, as my schedule would change some times after I had already sent in the hours I would need a caregiver at the house. There was always someone there, on time (5am) and I never worried that I would have to call off work due to someone not showing up. I felt very at ease leaving my mother in their care. I would recommend this agency to anyone.

Very helpful during a rough time

We used Options for my 95 year old grandmother with Alzheimer's. We had a hard time accepting that we needed help and my dad was really stressed out. When we met with [Removed], she made us feel so comfortable we knew we were making the right choice. She promised us one consistent care giver and she delivered. Almaz was excellent and clearly loved my grandmother. My grandmother passed but Options was a blessing during her last days. Best decision we could have made.
