About Preferred Care at Home
of Central Coastal San Diego
Personal Approach to Senior Home Care
Preferred Care at Home Central Coastal San Diego offers a variety of senior care services to the senior population and their loved ones in San Diego. Toni Yuskis Petruzzo, the owner and administrator, has an intimate history with home care, as she was a family caregiver for her mother who had Alzheimer’s. She was also a caregiver and conservator to her aunt who suffered from Parkinsonism, dementia and schizophrenia.
It is because of this history that she understands how difficult it is at times to stop the stress, frustration, anger, guilt, and fatigue from bleeding into the other important roles and personal relationships like wife and mother. She also understands that shouldering all the senior care responsibilities without any help may not be feasible or healthy in the long run.
Moreover, she knows what skills and training her caregivers should have in order to provide the most compassionate and competent senior home care. Every one of the caregivers is properly qualified and experienced, be they CNA’s, HHA’s, or LVN’s, many being student nurses from the local colleges in San Diego. Every caregiver that is placed in a senior’s home is certified in CPR and First Aid. They have undergone a medical exam and completed a TB test. In addition, caregivers must complete an extensive 7-step screening process and background check before they become a part of the Preferred Care at Home family of senior care providers in San Diego.
Toni personally keeps in contact with the family members on bi-weekly visits to the individuals receiving senior home care services. She personally keeps the family members informed on everything from weight change and dietary suggestions to personality changes and care plan updates. This service is especially impactful to family members who live out of the area.
