Health Care Staffing
I have been the National Director of Sales with Arcadia Home Care & Staffing since May, 2005, assisting in the sales effort for each of our 55 offices around the country. My responsibilities include coaching and mentoring our sales team as well as having direct contact with potential clients and referral sources. I consult with individuals, family members, social workers, case managers, guardians, attorneys, trust officers, insurance agents, and others who are making decisions about the care that is needed to keep a frail or elderly person safe and happy.
I assist in exploring the options for care, the possible resources for payment of care, the caregiver selection and interviews, as well as participating in care conferences both prior to and after the start of care. I assist individuals by educating them about the benefits of home care services from both a financial and a health perspective.
