The Caregiver Way

You can’t have quality in home care services without quality caregivers. Homewatch CareGivers of Las Vegas, Nevada knows this and that’s why we have created a special process to make working as one of our caregivers rewarding and beneficial for you and our clients. It all starts with hiring, then continues with training and orientation to make this a meaningful job.

Steps to Becoming a Caregiver

Since senior care can be such personal work for both the caregivers and the clients, we do everything we can to make sure that all parties feel safe and secure. We hire Certified Nurse Aides (CNAs), Personal Care Providers (PCPs) and Home Health Aides (HHAs) as caregivers once they have met the following requirements:

  • Fingerprinting FBI & state background checks
  • Proof of a 3-year driving history
  • Proof of passing a two-step TB test
  • Proof  of a recent physical
  • Proof of valid auto insurance
  • CPR & First Aid certification
  • Professional reference checks that verify not only employment history, but also integrity and job performance

Safety & Learning Matters

Just passing a background check and such isn’t enough to send a new caregiver to a client’s home. We also require that our caregivers take 12 hours of education via our Homewatch CareGivers University and participate in orientation before going to a client. These courses are part of their online education:

  • Communicating with the elderly
  • Care basics
  • Patient rights
  • Handwashing
  • Nutrition and hydration
  • Workplace Safety
  • Elder abuse
  • HIPAA

During orientation we are verifying that our caregivers have excellent communication skills, are able to follow directions, and fully understand our care process.
