Our Hiring Process

The Caregiver Way

woman caregiverAt Homewatch CareGivers of Beachwood we think of our caregivers as care partners.

  • Proper transfer techniques
  • Care for those living with dementia
  • Care for people living with COPD and pneumonia

During orientation with our new caregivers, we look for these characteristics and skills:

  • Patience
