Cheshire, CT – For the second year in a row, Assisted Living Services, Inc. in Cheshire has received the Best of Home Care – Employer of Choice Award from Home Care Pulse. The Employer of Choice Award is granted only to the top-ranking home care providers, based on caregiver satisfaction scores gathered by Home Care Pulse, an independent satisfaction research firm for home care. Assisted Living Services, Inc. (ALS) is now ranked among the best employers of in-home caregivers in the region.
“Our employees have gone above and beyond in keeping our clients safely at home this past year and they are our most valuable asset,” says Mario D’Aquila, COO of Assisted Living Services, Inc. “We are grateful that they chose us for this award as it helps us attract the best caregivers.”
D’Aquila notes recruitment and retention is crucial as the need for home care workers continues to skyrocket. In fact, according to the National Association of Home Care and Hospice there’s been a 125 percent increase in demand for caregivers since the coronavirus started in March 2020.
“We’re excited to congratulate Assisted Living Services, Inc. for their well-deserved achievement on earning the Best of Home Care – Employer of Choice Award,” says Erik Madsen, CEO of Home Care Pulse. “Since this award is based on employee feedback, it shows the dedication ALS has to providing their employees with a great working experience, while ensuring clients have well-trained, compassionate caregivers.”
Best of Home Care – Employer of Choice award-winning providers work with Home Care Pulse to gather feedback from their caregivers via live phone interviews each month. Because Home Care Pulse is an independent company, it is able to collect honest and unbiased feedback.
In fact, Assisted Living Services, Inc. uses the feedback from Home Care Pulse to recognize a deserving employee for its monthly Platinum Caregiver Award program that launched in March 2019. The unprecedented initiative awards $5,000 to a stellar caregiver who has exceeded expectations for quality care.
“We are happy to recognize Assisted Living Services, Inc. as a Best of Home Care – Employer of Choice, and we celebrate their accomplishments in building a team of happy, qualified caregivers to care for their clients,” says Madsen.
