Sally, a former family caregiver, said that her new senior care auditing career “will be her last endeavor”. Sally lives in a community of seniors and is hoping word will rapidly spread that her new senior care service is available for residents, as well as their loved ones and friends in other communities nearby Castaic.
“I oversee the health and welfare of a client with compassion, respect, and dignity in the comfort of their home”. As a CertifiedCare Senior Care Auditor, Sally Silagy visits frail seniors who live alone or with other frail seniors, and makes sure they are safe, comfortable and that they are free from abuse or neglect of any kind. She issues a digital report of her findings to her client immediately after her visit.
A widow now, Sally cared for her husband until his death. She said the process made her aware of the knowledge needed for caregiving, as well as her passion for it.
Sally has received a full spectrum of caregiving education and certification, and with her experience working as a caregiver, she feels confident that she can grow her independent senior care auditing service. Sally can provide as much or as little personal care service as she chooses because her main service is the senior care auditing service.
She obtained her four (yes, 4!) caregiver certifications online from CertifiedCare.org and then enrolled in the CertifiedCare Senior Care Auditor certification program. She is a Certified Professional Caregiver, Certified Alzheimer’s-Dementia Caregiver, Certified Special Needs Caregiver, and a Certified Senior Care Auditor.
A member of the American Caregiver Association, Sally says clients choose her because she “is more economical than a caregiver that is hired through an agency” and they know she’s been screened because she had to pass a detailed background check in order to even be considered for acceptance into CertifiedCare’s SCA program.
After completing her formal caregiving and senior care auditing education, she decided to join the CertifiedCare Senior Care Auditor Referral Network. She is an independent provider so she can offer greater flexibility in scheduling to her clients and a wide variety of personal care assistance, including transportation.
Sally expects this new career “to be her best ever, and wants her service to expand beyond her own expectations”. We certainly wish her all the best!
