Who Provides the Actual Care?
A First Name Basis employs only the highest quality caregivers who are personable, caring, attentive and punctual. All caregivers are pre-screened to ensure honesty, integrity and a clean background. Thorough background and drug checks are conducted on each applicant and each participates in a comprehensive interview so we can rest assured that they will be able to deliver on the “Live Smart” Guarantee. All caregivers are employees of A First Name Basis and as such are liability insured and covered by workers compensation.
How Do I Know I Will Like My Caregiver?
Once our Care Manager has met our clients and their family and fully understand the specific needs, we match each client with a specific caregiver based upon personalities and skills. We guarantee each client is compatible with the caregiver and will quickly replace a caregiver at any time, at the request of our client. A First Name Basis team members are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to resolve any problem that might arise.
