Home Instead CAREGivers are the foundation of our company. They are the first line of service which is why we pride ourselves on only hiring the most experienced and qualified CAREGivers in the industry. We go above and beyond the hiring requirements mandated by the state when screening our caregivers. Caregivers are thoroughly screened before hiring through a state wide criminal background check, a national criminal background check, Bureau of Elderly & Adult Services Abuse check, DMV checks, previous employment and reference verification, and drug tests.
We employ a wide range of caregivers to fit our clients individual needs. These CAREGivers provide caring companionship and quality personal care while encouraging independence. We have CAREGivers who are experienced in handling advanced chronic diseases such as Alzheimer & dementia, Parkinson's, Diabetes and COPD. Our caregivers are experienced in assisting with colostomy, urostomy, and oxygen. They receive support from our office team 24/7.
We provide initial training that offers over 50 hours of unparalleled education as well as monthly continuing education training. Our goal is to keep them informed with the latest care advances. Our Life Journal is the centerpiece of our training program in an effort to keep our clients independent in their homes for as long as possible.
All of our CAREGivers share a common desire to make a difference in the life of a senior.
