Being a Home Companion
The Screening Process: All of our caregivers are
interviewed by several members of our administrative
team. Following the interview process, work references
are checked. A criminal background check is conducted
with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the
Lake County Clerk of Courts. If the caregiver will be
driving a client, a Motor Vehicle Record is obtained
through the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.
The Education Process: All caregivers receive an
extensive orientation to our philosophy and standards of
care. This orientation involves several members of the
administrative team. It allows us to assess the care
giver's knowledge of senior care as well as their
communication skills, and the ability to interact well with
others. Orientation, training and job shadowing is paid
at the completion of the 90-day probation period.
Caregiver education is ongoing: Each caregiver must
complete twelve hours of continuing education annually.
These include self study packets, workshops on
pertinent senior care topics as well as individual training
for the unique needs of the client receiving care.
The Evaluation Process: All caregivers are supervised
by a Care Manger and overseen by our RN Case
Manager. She ensures the caregiver understands the
individual Plan of Care for the clients. She makes
supervisory visits to update the Plan of Care and
evaluate quality of care provided. Caregivers are
evaluated after 90-days, then on an ongoing basis.
Safety: All of our caregivers are bonded and insured.
I have worked in the hospital health care setting for over thirty-years and I wanted to
find a career that would allow me to use my knowledge and help care of seniors;
knowing that I'm in that category right now.
I have been with Home Companions Senior Care for five years and no regrets!
I know they have the best interest for the client's and have also been great
employers. - Candy, Home Health Aide | May 05, 2009
