The Caregiver Way

Do you have one year of experience providing care? If yes, Homewatch CareGivers serving those in the Plano, Texas community might be the perfect place for you to work as a caregiver. Other qualities that seem to make caregiving an excellent career are the ability to work with little supervision, maintaining a professional relationship with clients and true compassion for others. We want to be part of you reaching your full potential in a health care career while providing quality in home care to those in need.

Steps to Becoming a Caregiver

Being a caregiver involves being a good companion, a good listener, and also being able to help with practical daily activities like meal preparation, light housekeeping, and more. Because this work can be so personal, we have some necessary requirements of every caregiver we hire:

  • We run a federal background check.
  • We do in-depth professional reference checks from three different sources. This gives us insight into the work ethic, attitude, attendance and overall compassion for this line of work for this individual.
  • We verify that the individual has one year of providing care. While Certified Nurse Aide status is preferred, it is not mandatory for all caregivers.

Safety & Learning Matters

Our on-going professional training and the support of an employer who truly values the work of caregivers leads to sought after caregivers who become almost like family members to our clients. With the proper training and communication, we strive to make both our caregivers and clients always feel safe and secure.

Orientation and training at Homewatch CareGivers in Plano include:

  • Owner Wendy Raney meets caregivers during orientation to introduce them to the company’s mission. She continues to have a connection as she oversees most caregivers to their clients so she can observe them at work.
  • During orientation, we train our caregivers on proper handwashing, proper glove techniques, ambulation assistance with a gait belt, and transfer with proper body mechanics.
  • Monthly training on our exclusive Homewatch CareGivers University. These trainings include dementia care, HIPAA, completing a bed bath, proper body mechanics, how to deal with difficult behaviors, and effective communications.
