Our Caregivers

Our caregivers want more than a job. They want to make a difference in the lives of those in their care. At Citizens Homecare, our job is to give caregivers the direction and tools they need to fulfill their personal mission of service, as well as our corporate mission of improving the lives of those we serve.

To ensure that the people we employ meet our high standards, we have a rigorous selection process. Before caregivers can become employed with Citizens Homecare and begin caring for clients, every one of them must go through:

*    Reference checks
*    Background clearance, FBI and DOJ Cleared
*    Personal interviews
*    Drug test

Once a caregiver meets our strict selection criteria, it's just the beginning. First, all Citizens homecare caregivers are insured and bonded. Then, each caregiver goes through a comprehensive orientation process that ingrains our policies and procedures.

Our training program provides ongoing, specialized training that ensures our caregivers understand the high standards of care expected by Citizens Homecare. Caregivers are given training on issues that help them develop as better overall caregivers, as well as deal with very specific situations, including:

*    Medication Management and Compliance
*    Alzheimer's and Dementia
*    Osteoarthritis and Mobility Loss
*    Hypertension/Stroke Recovery
*    Diabetes
*    Heart Disease
*    Cancer Recovery
