Why was Gifted Healthcare established? Gifted Healthcare was created to provide safe and dignified care for patients in the hospital or in their home, whether they’re recovering from an illness, prefer to age in place or simply need an extra set of hands and eyes. The trend in healthcare is moving to be more “home-based” and Gifted Healthcare is on the front lines.

How has business been? Most clients come by word of mouth, which is how we know we’re doing a good job. We have expanded through Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Oklahoma and are planning further growth.

For which individuals is GH relevant? Every person’s situation is different, therefore we customize the care in each case. We begin with a personalized assessment of our client in their home, and an individualized plan of care follows that is overseen by our Chief Nursing Officer and social worker, whether medical or non-medical care is warranted.

Why do you do what you do? Providing dignified care to people when they are at their most vulnerable is a calling, not a job, and we only hire people that feel the same way.

How can people know they can trust your staff? Screening, interviewing and testing our caregivers is one of the most important aspects of what we do. We take the time to get to know each and every one of them because a good match is important on both ends. We don’t hire anyone who we would not want to care for their parents or children.

What’s remarkable about GH? We are moved and inspired by our staff every day. We have had caregivers travel with patients to see their children across the country, show up on Christmas day, bring them groceries on their days off and the list goes on and on.
