Adriana is driven to see that both the PA IHSS care recipients and providers get their needs met within agency guidelines. Her primary responsibility is recruiting care providers and matching them with recipients in order to create as positive a working relationship as possible. She receives feedback from both the providers and the care recipients on their working relationships and deals with related issues as they arise. Her positive dedication brings stability to an area of the agency that sees frequent turnover in the clientele it serves. An interesting fact about Adriana is that she almost died during her scuba training due to a technical issue with her oxygen tank (we're happy she made it and is with us today!)
