How do you make the care plan for my loved one?
When we initially come out for a meeting, the needs are discussed. We gather information about their health and personal information. We use the personal information so the caregiver can get to know the client as a person, not just another client. We put together a care plan that is geared for each individual. Changes in the care plan are adjusted as their health changes.
What is your policy for covering shifts?
When we have a caregiver that calls off, we do everything possible to cover that shift. We have a great pool of caregivers that try to help each other and go above and beyond for their clients.

We have Nurse Aids (CNAs and STNAs) that are certified by the state. They can do everything that a companion caregiver can do and assist with personal care.
Do you require background checks?
All of our caregivers have had their BCII.
Are they First Aid and CPR certified?

Does the company offer Workman’s Comp to their employees?

Do the caregivers receive ongoing training?
Our RN provides a training session every month at our monthly caregiver meeting.
What can the caregivers offer to you and the family? Personal care? Can they drive you to the store and/or appointments? What kind of tasks can they do in the house? Vacuum? Laundry? Prepare meals?
Both companion caregivers and STNA/CNAs can provide transportation to appointments, church, store or anywhere else the client needs to go. All of the caregivers will assist with any light housekeeping, vacuuming, cleaning floors, laundry, or anything else that is required. The caregivers understand the importance of good nutrition for the client’s health as well as exercise and doing ROM exercises.
