SARASOTA, Fla. - Aug. 6, 2013 - PRLog -- In March, 2013 Sarasota welcomed its newest senior home care provider, ( Care Providers at Home. But unlike the majority of care providers in the area, Care Providers at Home is not a franchise and not headquartered in a state other than Florida. This local business is family-owned and operated by father and son Jim and Tom Grimes, and operates solely in Sarasota County, Florida, offering families attentive, personal, and local care provided by those with deep ties to their community.

Many agree that this is a welcomed change in the senior home health care industry. It’s not a far stretch to assume that those who call the community of Sarasota their home would be most dedicated to caring and advocating for the senior inhabitants of the community. In fact, many have long been searching for just such a business with local ties.

The care of your loved one isn’t something you want taken lightly. You wouldn’t want to talk to a representative in Ohio about caring for your aging mother in Florida, you want to know you’re speaking to someone involved and nearby. Sarasota’s newest senior home care provider delivers the assurance and peace of mind family’s desire by living there locally to react and provide care when you need them.

But locality isn’t the only benefit of Sarasota’s newest senior home care business. Care Providers at Home owner and administrator Jim Grimes has demonstrated the company’s unrelenting commitment to truly compassionate care ( during his time working in the post-surgical ward of Sarasota’s renowned Memorial Hospital (SMH). Mr. Grimes has also been honorably recognized by the University of South Florida, College of Nursing with both the “Spirit of Nursing Award” (professor-awarded) and the “Nightingale Award” (student-awarded). Both awards are described as recognitions of leadership, spirit, service, selflessness, charity, and community values.

Moreover, the home care company has also raised the bar in a number of other areas relating to the home care industry, one of which is the hiring process for senior home care companions. While state regulations only call for a minimum standard of level 2 background checks, Care Providers at Home has invested in the Caregiver Quality Assurance ( (CQA) pre-employment assessment tool to screen potential caregivers personality and character before allowing them to enter your home.

While background checks only identify applicants that were “caught in the act,” the CQA pre-employment assessment tool evaluates potential care providers on multiple levels of character and personality including honesty, aptitude, organization, tough mindedness, dependability, likeliness of substance abuse and others, greatly increasing the chance of identifying “risky” caregivers before they can exploit your loved one.

In addition, Care Providers at Home has also chosen to offer clients 24/7 on-call support. Owners Jim and Tom Grimes take turns carrying the company’s emergency line, which is always on and within ear-reach of one. The two have stated they have no problem waking up at 2:00am if they have a client in desperate need of assistance. They advocate their belief that all senior home care providers should be available 24/7, highlighting the great responsibility that comes with the job.

Finally, in addition to the benefits mentioned above, this local and family run home care provider also offers ongoing RN supervision courtesy of RN-owner Jim Grimes, bonded and insured care providers to guarantee security for your loved ones belongings, and regular reports to assure families of the wellbeing of their loved one.

Care Providers at Home offers a free, no obligation in-home consultations to consult potential clients on their home care options, to determine client-caregiver compatibility, and to assess the home safety of your loved one.
