We know it isn’t easy to make the decision to invite a caregiver into your home. That’s why our personalized screening system is designed to maximize your peace of mind. You’ll have the opportunity to interview any caregiver that we refer to you.
You deserve to have an experienced caregiver in your home. All of our caregivers have strong employment history and experience working with seniors. Many of our caregivers are also Licensed Nursing Assistants, Home Health Aides, or have additional certification and training.
We complete an extensive background check on all our employees. Our process includes a National and local criminal history check, driver’s license check, social security validation, address validation, sexual abuse check, along with personal and professional reference checks.
Visiting Angels also emphasizes intangible traits such as a compassionate personality. We strive to hire the best caregivers with excellent character. We believe in taking all measures necessary to find the ideal caregiver for you. Part of this process is evaluating a caregiver in different ways. One of these steps is a computerized test to determine their personality traits. Our computerized testing is yet another component of our due diligence process.
Once hired with Visiting Angels, our caregivers complete a thorough orientation. This orientation builds the foundation for a clear understanding of Visiting Angels’ philosophies, policies, office staff, procedures, and expectations. Additionally, all caregivers go through a comprehensive training (13 hours+) on dementia. This training which comes from the Alzheimer's Association, is an in-person, classroom style course which is taught by our on-staff instructor. "Caring for People with Alzheimer's Disease: A Habilitation Training Curriculum" better prepares our caregivers for successful experience with those who have Alzheimer's. Your caregiver also enjoys ongoing trainings monthly, employee recognition, and the keen awareness that they are part of a team.
We carry bonding, general liability, professional liability, and worker’s compensation coverage on all our caregivers.
