Satisfaction Data is a ‘Game-Changer’ in Providing Exceptional Care

Learn about how Visiting Angels of Carlisle, PA is leveraging client and employee surveys to better serve our communities

At Visiting Angels, there are two guiding principles that we follow every single day. The first is to put the needs of our caregivers first. Without exceptional, experienced, and well-trained caregivers, we wouldn’t be able to provide the in-home care our clients depend on. The second is, of course, to exceed the expectations of our clients and their families by providing reliable, professional, living assistance services in the home.

In order to best serve our communities, both of these principles need to be at the heart of everything we do. From creating schedules that meet a caregiver’s availability to matching clients with a compatible, friendly provider, satisfaction from both sides is key.

Using Technology to Track Satisfaction

How do we ensure that both caregivers and clients are satisfied? Can we identify pain points before they become major issues? Nationally, Visiting Angels franchisees were encouraged to utilize Home Care Pulse as a way to survey clients and caregivers monthly in an effort to answer these questions.

Our office’s owner, Richard Ruda, had this to say about getting started with Home Care Pulse:

“I started recognizing that there were gaps in [what we thought we knew]. I saw that while we always had a general feeling of where our weaknesses were, we didn’t always have the whole picture or an action plan to strengthen these areas.”

Using survey responses, our office was able to ensure a higher standard of care by addressing concerns quickly. These surveys also provided great client and caregiver testimonials which can be shared with families who are deciding whether or not to use our services.
