Senior Planning Services Offering Round the Clock Care

To protect the safety of vulnerable seniors during the coronavirus pandemic, home care agency Senior Planning Services is now providing round-the-clock, live-in care to seniors in private homes throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
With the coronavirus sweeping through nursing homes across the state, now has never been a better time to keep elderly loved ones in their own homes and out of long-term care facilities. Senior Planning Services has made it easier for seniors and their families to achieve just that, by offering compassionate, professional care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Each senior receiving 24-hour home care is assigned two, highly experienced caregivers. Limiting the number of caregivers to two ensures seniors are not exposed to multiple home health workers coming and going from the home. For added safety, caregivers wear personal protective equipment when working with clients, including gloves, masks, and shoe covers. They also carry hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes to disinfect hands and high-touch surfaces.
Family members wishing to visit their loved one at home are also encouraged to take precautions, including wearing masks (provided by Senior Planning Services), practicing social distancing, and having their temperature taken before entering the house.
"The health and safety of our clients has always been and continues to be our top priority," said Debra DiNapoli, CEO of Senior Planning Services. "I am so proud of my entire staff, caregivers, office staff and the executive team for providing a stellar professional service to our clients."
Senior Planning Services has operated for more than 30 years, and is one of the largest home care and professional care management agencies in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. In January, the company acquired Ventura-based Meditech Health Services, doubling the firm's size and expanding its pool of caregivers. Senior Planning Services' elder care team includes geriatric nursing specialists, mental health professionals, social workers, and experts in dementia care, rehabilitation, and elder law.
Caregivers are selected for their compassion and commitment, and undergo a rigorous background check and screening process. Each undergoes specialized training to enhance the experience they already have. Families, seniors, and caregivers also have 24/7 access to a team of professional care managers, who can provide help and support if urgent matters arise.
Senior Planning Services is located at 402 E. Carrillo St., Suite C, Santa Barbara. For more information, visit www.seniorplanningservices.com. To reach DiNapoli, call 805-966-3312, ext. 7221, or email [email protected].
