What happens if my scheduled caregiver cannot make it to my home?
Life happens. People get sick, go on vacation, have family emergencies, etc. Our caregivers are not immune to life’s curve balls. Through the use of advanced notification software, we provide assurance that clients and families are cared for in a timely manner, in turn offering peace of mind that your loved ones are well cared for. If your scheduled caregiver is unable to make it to your visit we will work with you and/or your family to ensure your needs are met.
How are your caregivers trained?
To ensure quality care, we hire certified nursing assistants or require our employees to complete a 43-hour personal care assistance training program within the first 60 days of employment. We also have a thorough mentoring program that allows new caregivers to learn from seasoned caregivers.

Is the care plan tailored to your needs?
