TOTOWA, N.J., June 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Senior Company views its caregivers as critical for providing world-class care to seniors. For this reason, the company continues to invest in its employees with flexible schedules, higher pay than industry standards and stringent safety measures.
The Senior Company pays home health aides 30 to 35 percent above industry standards and offers attractive benefits packages that include the following:
- Health insurance coverage
- Paid time off
- Flexible scheduling
- Unlimited overtime pay
- Pension plans
- State of New Jersey sick leave and FMLA
- Annual license renewal reimbursement
- Time-and-a-half pay on holidays and birthdays
- Tuition assistance
- Awards and bonuses
This month, the Senior Company expanded its benefits packages further to cover the cost of physicals for new employees. With the health and safety of seniors always top-of-mind, the company views the investment in caregivers as absolutely necessary and worthwhile. The company has witnessed the positive results of treating home health aides well. Caregivers are motivated to treat seniors with respect, compassion and kindness and keep devoted vigil over their well-being.
The Senior Company also does everything in its power to keep home health aides safe and healthy, protecting seniors in turn. The company mandated proactive measures that include screening all caregivers before they enter patients' homes. Additionally, if a live-in home health aide takes time off, they are required to get screened before they return to their charge's home.
Fully committed to the well-being of seniors, the company gives personal protective equipment (PPE) to patients and their families. Some other home care companies require families to obtain PPE themselves. Families receive digital thermometers, germicidal wipes, hand sanitizer and more, as well.
"Caregivers truly are the greatest asset we have. For this reason, we are happy to invest in their health with safety precautions and in their future with a rewarding benefits package and competitive pay. The Senior Company will continue to take measures that ensure the seniors entrusted to our care are healthy, safe and happy," said Steve Romano, CEO at The Senior Company.
Home health aides who are interested in working for The Senior Company are encouraged to apply via the company's Careers page.
