About Our Caregivers
Our caregivers want more than a job. They want to make a difference in the lives of those in their care. As a company, our job is to give caregivers the direction and tools they need to fulfill their personal mission of service, as well as our corporate mission of improving the lives of those we serve.
To ensure that the people we employ meet our high standards, we have a rigorous selection process. Before caregivers can become employed with Right at Home and begin caring for clients, every one of them must go through:
- Reference checks
- Background clearance
- Personal interviews
- Competency testing
Training and Continuing Education
Once a caregiver meets our strict selection criteria, it's just the beginning. First, all Right at Home caregivers are insured and bonded. Then, each caregiver goes through a comprehensive orientation process that ingrains our policies and procedures.
Our CERT (Caregiver Education Retention and Training) program provides ongoing, specialized training that ensures that our caregivers understand the high standards of care expected by Right at Home.
Through Right at Home University – the educational arm of our CERT Program – caregivers are given training on issues that help them develop as better overall caregivers, as well as deal with very specific situations, including:
- Medication Management and Compliance
- Alzheimer's and Dementia
- Osteoarthritis and Mobility Loss
- Hypertension/Stroke Recovery
- Heart Disease
- Cancer Recovery
Our caregiver Rachel enabled us to bring our 92-year old mother to our son's wedding without worry or concern. Rachel was caring, respectful and attended to our Mother's every need. Rachel cared for her in several different settings:rehearsal dinner wedding ceremony and overnight at hotel. She became a part of our family. We used this provider during our son's wedding.
