Testing for knowledge and skills.
Before hiring a caregiver, applicants must pass test to guarantee their understanding of common conditions of aging and disability, and how to help a client in distress. We consistently look for experienced caregivers and give preference to those who have taken classes and attained certification as nurses aides.
On- going staff training.
It's not enough to take a class once. Things change quickly in medicine. This is why we give periodic in services, make training materials available to our staff, and support our caregivers in going back to school to earn higher degrees.
