Our Caregiver Requirements
" We had two primary objectives when we started Sitters Etc...first, to provide better service than any other company in this business, and second, to ensure that our Caregivers are trained, experienced, and meticulously pre-screened. The success of Sitters Etc. can be attributed to hiring and retaining the best Caregivers in the field of non-medical home care." Beau Brothers, Founder
Sitters Etc.'s Caregivers are trained in the common diseases of today's seniors...Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Pulmonary Disease, Alzheimer's, Dimentia.
The care they provide our elderly is put into perspective on a personal level when they are asked to place themselves in the shoes of someone who needs assistance getting in/out of a shower, to be reminded to eat or take their medications, or to be aware of their continence needs.
They perform their duties from the perspective of COMPASSION and DIGNITY.
All employees undergo an extensive interview and application process. Sitters Etc.'s caregivers must have at least one year of verifiable caregiving experience and/or have attained a CNA or other caregiving-related degree. CNAs must have at least six months of verifiable caregiving experience to qualify.
Sitters Etc. processes a thorough background check including a criminal background check, abuse registry and sexual abuse registry checks. We verify the residence(s) of each caregiver for the previous seven years, as we are looking for stability in our staff. If a caregiver provides transportation, a Motor Vehicle Report is precessed to ensure the reliability of their driving skills.
