Care Worker Education
Home Care Assistance hires only the most qualified and compassionate individuals as Care Workers, accepting only 1 out of every 25 applicants on average. We take additional steps in vetting our Care Workers to protect our clients by conducting thorough screening, which includes background checks, reference checks and work authorisation. A proprietary Care Worker Personality Screening test assesses each applicant’s traits, such as kindness, honesty, and conscientiousness. Home Care Assistance exercises in-person interviewing practices to confirm our in home Care Workers’ reliability and demeanour. We do all this to ensure your ageing in place loved one is matched with a Care Worker who provides safe, reliable home care assistance and is also suitable in personality and temperament. At the end of the day, our goal is to provide care for the elderly that will improve their quality of life and to afford families the comfort and peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in safe, reliable hands as they enjoy ageing in place.
