Right At Home of Seattle and Eastside 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 Right At Home of Seattle & Eastside Mission: "To Improve The Quality Of Life For Those We Serve."
National Caregiver of the Year Nominees
Channelle, Ghennet and Maria are three of our excellent care staff and were nominated for Right at Home's National Caregiver of the Year program. We are honored to recognize them as being among the best in the entire country. Read our submissions here.
To ensure that the people we employ meet our high standards, we have a rigorous selection process. Before home health aides 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
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 home health aide goes through a comprehensive orientation process that ingrains our policies and procedures.
