Caregiver Screening & Training
AAA We Make Time Home Care’s all-encompassing screening process and on-going training takes the risk out of having unsupervised workers in your home. Of course, all of our Caregivers are employees, with a stable majority having been with the company for 3+ years eliminating the revolving door of Caregivers. We perform extensive work, driving and criminal background checks. Rest assured, they are fully bonded, and HomeLife Partners takes care of all federal and state taxes, unemployment, liability insurance and worker’s compensation. These necessary details protect seniors and their estates from the possibility of worker injury claims, tax violations and unlawful activities by unscreened individuals. Put simply, all the risk is yours if a Home Care company provides independent contractors or you hire privately, and there is risk in hiring Home Care workers.
Customized Training: One Client at a Time
Before our Caregiver ever walks through your door, they receive a “Customer Orientation” from our Care Manager and any additional training if applicable to your needs. We review the Care Plan, which is developed for you based on the original Needs Assessment, assuring that they understand your needs and preferences. Client-specific training may include instruction on diet requirements for clients who are on blood thinners, are diabetic, or suffer from diverticulitis. Customized training in body mechanics, transfers, bathing techniques are also done to assure a safe experience for both the Caregiver and the client. Every time a Caregiver begins a new assignment, they must complete the Customer Orientation no matter how long they have worked for us.
