What specific caregivers will be assigned to your loved one?  

That would depend on the level of care your loved one will need.  We have a wide range of caregivers, CNA's, overnight sundowners care, companionship care, and household management. It's important to us to assign a compatible, appropriate caregiver to your loved one.

How does Silver Lining develop the plan of care and supervise the caregiver?

Our supervisor evaluates the caregiver in your loved one's home and gets input from them. We involve family members in the process, when requested.  Every care plan evolves over time as needs change. We are quick and honest reporters of what changes are needed to continue excellent care.
