CarePatrol of Northern DE & South Chester County is delighted to introduce the newest member of our team of placement specialists – Betty “BJ” DiDonato. For many of you in Delaware, BJ needs no introduction, having spent many years working as a professional in the healthcare industry throughout the state. She has worked as a liaison for Seasons Hospice as well as two skilled nursing facilities and, most recently, as a senior care referral specialist covering the entire state of Delaware. BJ has now brought her enthusiasm, her heart and her love for seniors to CarePatrol and we are thrilled to have her.
“I’m excited to be a part of the CarePatrol family.” BJ said. “I love working with seniors, and the opportunity to be a trusted advisor to them and their family during a time where very difficult decisions must be made, decisions that will determine safety and quality of life, is a great blessing for me. One of the main factors in my decision is the complete focus CarePatrol has on doing what is in the best interest of the senior. Both the business owners, Scott and Theresa Dow, and the parent company, CarePatrol, emphasized that the safety of the senior will always be the most important factor, and I love that.”
“I am thrilled to be working with BJ.” commented Theresa Dow. “I’ve known BJ for years and I’ve seen the heart she has for seniors so I couldn’t be happier that she has decided to join us.”
CarePatrol, based in Arizona, is the oldest and largest placement agency in the U.S. The business model differs from the online referral model by being very hands-on. Certified Senior Advisors meet with seniors and/or their families for an in-depth Care Discovery, which looks at everything from care needs to financial means to hobbies and interests – the whole person. We then present the top matches, arrange tours of communities the senior wants to see, provide transportation and accompaniment on those tours, help connect clients to essential resources (in-home health care, elder law firms, VA benefits, etc.) and generally facilitate the entire decision making process for what is a daunting task that often needs to be done at a difficult and stressful time.
Your privacy is also of the utmost importance to us. Unlike online referral agencies, our care providers are not allowed to contact clients until after a tour has been completed and a relationship established. No cold or robo calls – ever.
Best of all, CarePatrol’s service is FREE for our clients. We get paid by the thousands of care providers with whom we work.
