"Proud to have one of the highest rates of retention for caregivers in our industry"
Thirty-five percent (35%) of United Homecare Services caregivers have been with our agency for three years or more*. Some caregivers have been employed as long as 16 years. Nationally, the average caregiver leaves the job after only six months. Our long retention is evidence of the respect we give to our care staff and the continuity of service you can count on. (*as of April2021)
We take special consideration in choosing whom to send into your home. And when we introduce a caregiver to you and your family, we are confident that you will agree.
We train our care staff in aspects of dementia, infection control, proper personal care techniques, dealing with adverse behaviors, medical terminology, fall prevention in the home and many other areas. Well-trained and respected caregivers are better equipped to use good judgment and give optimal care.
The people we hire as our caregivers must have a minimum of six months of caregiving experience. They must pass a criminal background check and go through orientation, state-required training and competency testing before providing services.
Our staff has a passion for helping people. By valuing our caregivers, we serve you better. Caregivers are at the heart of what we do, and we take great care to match them to your needs, so that you can enjoy a long-lasting, positive relationship and a trusted bond.
