ABOUT OUR CAREGIVERS

The single most important success factor in providing care in the home is the consistency and competency of the caregiver staff. For over 35 years the culture of Personal Care has been to invest in and support our caregivers. Personal Care employs all of its caregivers protecting our employees and our clients with worker’s compensation, liability and criminal insurance. Knowing our success is dependent on the caregivers we send into the home, we work diligently on how we hire, how we orient, how we train and support and how we optimize the care that is delivered.

Personal Care caregivers are the foundation of our company. They are the first line of service, which is why we pride ourselves on only hiring the most experienced and qualified caregivers in the industry. All our caregivers are employees and are fully insured for worker’s compensation, liability, and criminal insurance. We also commit to an in-depth orientation and ongoing continuing education to improve the level of our skills. We often bring in guest lecturers including the area ombudsman, home health and hospice nurses, and others.
