Caregiver and Client Matching
To help develop strong, trusting relationships between clients and caregivers, we carefully match clients with caregivers whose interests, life experiences, and personalities complement their own. Before we ever select caregivers, we meet with clients and take note of personality traits and speak with them about experiences to help us select the most compatible caregiver. As part of our quality assurance, our nurse will oversee and evaluate the caregiver and care recipient to ensure the best possible situation. If clients wish to make changes at any time, our professionals are always available to accommodate requests and answer questions.
