As a caregiver owned and operated agency, we know how important it is to bring experienced, reliable caregivers onto our team. In keeping with our Department of Health In-Home Services licensing requirements, we follow extensive measures to ensure that our caregivers are trained, professional and safe. Our caregivers are all licensed Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) or Home Care Aids (HCAs), meaning that all of our caregivers have gone through at least 75 hours of training in essential care skills, mental health, dementia, infection control and more. Most of our caregivers are also NARs, DDA-residential certified, and continue to receive thorough training to meet the needs of specialized care cases. All of our caregivers are required to have at least a year of experience before being considered for employment. Additionally, all of our caregivers complete State and Federal background checks and are fingerprinted. We conduct a lengthy interview process and require a probationary stage of employment before considering a new caregiver for ownership in our cooperative.
