 Finding “The Perfect Fit” For Caregiving

Caregivers on WeCare’s registry do more than assisting with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), preparing meals and light housekeeping. While these duties are important, our Caregivers find ways to keep clients active and engaged. This could include visiting friends, attending community events, playing games, organizing family photos and regular outings.

    • Geriatric Nursing Assistant (GNA)
  • Two years of in-home care experience
  • CPR Certificate
  • Current TB clearance and Hepatitis B screening
  • Valid driver’s license and reliable transportation
  • Surety Bond
  • Professional liability insurance

Before being invited to our Registry, caregivers go through a comprehensive eight-point screening process that includes:

  • Telephone and subsequent in-person interviews
  • Written skills competency test
  • Practical skills competency test
  • Professional Reference Checks
