Q. How can I trust a stranger in my home?

A. Each of our caregivers must pass a rigorous 14 point background screening that far exceeds the state regulatory requirements and is the most comprehensive in the industry. We typically hire the best 5% of caregiver applicants. Other companies hire the rest. In addition, all caregivers are supervised by registered nurses.

Q. I’ve heard independent practitioners are cheaper; is it dangerous to hire one?

A. Yes to both questions! For safety and security, each of the caregivers with CareMinders Home Care  is bonded and insured. Independent practitioners can hold clients responsible for injuries that occur while they are on the job. Plus, they are not subjected to our comprehensive industry exclusive background screening process.

By contracting with a legitimate company with quality credentials, the family need not worry about liability from taxes, worker’s compensation, overtime tracking and payments or any of the other problems associated with directly hiring workers.

Another major issue for many families is what happens if a private caregiver or their child get’s sick and the caregiver has to call off their shift? We have a pool of caregivers to draw from to provide uninterrupted service. The same is true of caregiver vacations, holiday’s and departures.

CareMinders Home Care is available to assist your loved ones by offering in home care that is safe, effective, mitigates inherent risks and is affordable. Based on the needs of the client, caregivers who meet your criteria are assigned from a matching process to assure the best possible fit. All services are supervised by a registered nurse, while offering value-added clinical oversight of the patient’s health status.
