Safety & Learning Matters

It’s important that our caregivers feel fully prepared and safe when they go to care for a client, just as it’s necessary that each client feels comfortable with their caregiver. Therefore, we require that all of our caregivers attend an 8+ hour class on our approach to care, etiquette, skills and equipment use.

Homewatch CareGivers offers health insurance, paid vacation days and typically can give a caregiver up to 40 hours of work per week reliably.
