My Mom dancing with Granny at Christmas
I'm Leigh Davis and along with my wife Candra,
we're the founders of ELDirect Senior Care Resources.
For over 10 years, my parents provided in-home care for my Grandmother. "Granny Mobbs" as she was affectionately known suffered from both Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease. Mom and Dad did the best they could but had to hire home care companies to help fill-in the gaps when other family responsibilities came up.
Sadly these caregiving companies provided very poor service. The care was substandard. In fact, several times there was no care delivered at all because the caregiver never showed up. Our parents also had to deal with theft issues . . . in all it was just a terrible experience!
The bottom line was: these companies took no pride in what they offered; they had no structure and standards and my grandmother and parents suffered because of this.
Candra's family also struggled with caregiving concerns through the years. We knew there had to be a better way!
This is why Candra and I vowed when we began ELDirect on January 1, 1996 that our clients would never live through what our families did. Our core values are built on providing great in home care, case management and resource services so you and your family can remove the stress.
Over the last 2+ decades of passionately improving ELDirect's services and systems, Mr. Davis has become a noted expert, coach, speaker, and author in the home health care field.
His book 57 Points To Caregiver Quality details ELDirect's proprietary caregiver hiring system.
This system is the only hiring system in the U.S. recognized by Lloyd's of London for the quality caregivers it helps ELDirect hire.
Mr. Davis coaches other home care agencies on how to properly attract, hire and retain top caregivers.
