4+ Years

Our average caregiver-to-client relationship.

Many of our caregivers have built years-long relationships with clients. As our name suggests, you and your loved one will know our caregiver on A First Name Basis.

Helping caregivers care.

Our caregivers are the most important employees in our company. Building careers for them isn’t just the right thing to do – it leads to better care for our clients, too.

Best-in-class employer.

We offer market-leading compensation, and our caregivers can get paid every day with DailyPay. Our caregivers can rely on daily communication and support from our dedicated Care Managers. Our caregivers are bonded and insured.

Attracting the best.

We attract the very best caregivers because we make them feel valued. We hire only the top 10% of caregiver applicants. All our caregivers pass rigorous tests assessing their capabilities, compassion, and communication skills.

Well-trained & professional.

We evaluate and prepare our caregivers using a 21-point training program, which includes drug testing, background checks, and cross-referencing with state-level Office of Inspector General exclusion lists.

Your dedicated
Care Manager.

Every client is assigned a Care Manager. Your dedicated Care Manager monitors your loved one’s care plan, overseeing caregiver reliability and making home visits on a regular basis. You can contact your Care Manager anytime.
