Care management and oversight for seniors and clients
Care Management and supervision support is the foundation of Chosen Family Home Care’s wide range of senior caregiver services. This support and supervision in greater Philadelphia provides peace of mind to families and allows our caregivers and home health aides to excel.
Our Care Managers supervise our caregivers and are always on call. They provide oversight of the care provided, ensuring the effective achievement of senior client outcomes. Whether you have a home health aide or personal care aide, Chosen Family Home Care supervisors will monitor every aspect of the home care assistance your senior loved one receives.
In more acute situations, such as during a hospital stay, our Care Managers will communicate personally with physicians, physical therapists, and other medical professionals regarding your family member or loved one’s treatment.
After your loved one is discharged from the hospital, the caregiver or home health aide will act under the direct supervision of a Care Manager to ensure that the doctor’s orders and recommendations are followed closely. This is all done to ensure the best chance of success for our senior clients.
Transitional care is a very vulnerable time for individuals discharging from one care setting, like a hospital, to the home. Chosen Family Home Care provides heightened home care assistance for seniors in these cases.

Your Care Manager will identify the services that best fit your loved one’s circumstances and develop a customized senior home care plan. The care plan will be carried out by a local, highly trained Chosen Family Home Care home health aide caregiver that will adhere to the plan with dedication and care.
