Hi, my name is Nimota, I am a personal caregiver for Rhythms Home Care, and I wanted to share a little bit about how we go about finding the right caregiver for you or your loved one.
Are Rhythms caregivers bond and insured?
Yes! Our stringent hiring process includes background checks, drug testing and five professional references. In addition, all team members are required to have an up to date insurance policy.
What training does Rhythms provide their caregivers?
We believe in investing in our team members and providing them the right tools to provide quality care, which is why we continuously offer training. Upon hire, all caregivers attend initial orientation, which includes a thorough review of Rhythms policies and procedures. Following orientation, team members go on a series of client visits with seasoned team members for hands-on training before they are assigned clients of their own.
After initial training, team members have monthly, quarterly, and annual training. Monthly training is conducted online and includes a variety of topics. Quarterly training is in person and conducted by Rhythms leadership. Annual training focuses on testing for the key competencies each team member is held to.
How are caregivers matched with loved ones?
We take pride in finding the right match for our clients; therefore, understand whom they are and how they are unique is our number one goal. After selecting us as your homecare company, we will sit down with you and your loved one to learn about them. We look to identify personalities and caregiver preferences. Once we have that information we look for the best match. It usually takes about 1-2 weeks to find the most compatible caregiver for your loved one.
At Rhythms Home Care we want to ensure that our caregivers are trained for the benefit of providing the best type of care for your loved one. Call today to get a free assessment.
