How are the caregivers selected?
Caregivers are selected according to their experience, background, education, life experiences, and level of compassion for others. Before hiring each caregiver is screened for professional experience, criminal background, and trained. Their compassion and integrity are checked through references and life experiences. CNAs (Certified Nursing Aids) or HHAs (Home Health Aids) are checked via their education and professional references.
*All caregivers go through rigorous training before caring for a client so we are assured of their ability to provide care and enrichment with the utmost respect. You’ll have a peace of mind when choosing us. Our caregivers are bonded, insured, and covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance. We only hire the very best caregivers — those we would choose to care for our own family.
When are you available?
All the time – we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, which includes holidays!
Is there a written plan of care for each client? When necessary, how often is it modified?
Yes. Caregiving for You prepares an individualized and completely confidential Plan of Care for each client. Family members, the client, and all agree on the Plan before services can begin. Once agreed upon, the case manager recommends the best caregiver for the client and establishes a schedule for monitoring and communication.
*At least every 3-6 months the client’s Plan of Care is reviewed with the client and family, more frequently as needed. The review is an important part of the client’s care program, because it ensures the client is receiving the appropriate level of care and is satisfied with the care provided.
Will I have the same Caregiver all the time? How will I meet my Caregiver?
Whenever possible the same caregiver will be assigned to help you. If by chance after working together you decide the caregiver does not meet your needs, another one will be assigned to you. It is your choice. You must be completely satisfied with the caregiver. Before the caregiver starts working for you, we will arrange a meeting with the family and to assure that you and the caregiver can work well together.
What if my Caregiver is sick or on vacation?
If your caregiver is unavailable, you need not worry. Caregiving for You employs a team of caregivers so care will not be interrupted. If the need arises, your case manager will arrange for another caregiver and will contact you in advance. Prior to service by an interim caregiver, you will meet and review the Plan of Care with the case manager. Services are continued without interruption, because your safety and security are our top priority.
Why should my caregiver be an employee of versus being an Independent Contractor of the Client?
You do not have to worry about Worker’s Compensation, liability insurances, payroll and tax deductions. You do not have to perform comprehensive background checks. We handle it all. Should our caregiver have an accident on the job or not declare income, you are not liable. All our caregivers are carefully screened and trained. We handle scheduling and replacements should your caregiver be unable to go into work. All caregivers through Caregiving for You are employees of our agency. This affords you many advantages over hiring an independent caregiver yourself.
