Benefits of Hiring Home Care Solutions
Why Choose Home Care Solutions vs. Hiring a Private Caregiver?
Do you wonder how to find quality, trustworthy caregivers to come into your home? At Home Care Solutions, all employment applications are carefully screened prior to an interview. Each caregiver candidate is interviewed by at least 2 managers. We check references and conduct a criminal background check.
In addition, caregivers must be certified or registered with the state of Washington, have a current First Aid/CPR card, have successfully completed training through “Fundamentals of Care” and “Nurse Delegation” and have experience working with either the elderly, disabled or special needs individuals. Once the candidate has successfully completed these requirements, he/she is considered for a position.
Additionally, we have a skills lab dedicated to training for all levels of caregivers and any time during employment with us should they need it. Whether it may be for an overview on skills or their first time learning a new skill, we are here to support them in their career! Our skills lab is in our office, fully equipped to train on Hoyer lifts, bed baths, toileting, transfers, catheter care, and a whole lot more! Our Training Coordinator offers skills training every other Thursday in the skills lab. All staff are welcome to sign up to learn new things or sharpen their skills.
