Caregivers play a significant role in the recovery and health of our clients. We highly value our caregivers and we understand that they are at the center of client care at all times. We treat our caregivers with compassion and with respect at all times. Caregiving requires skill mastery, experience and most importantly of all, compassion. At Capital Home Care, we hire our caregivers based not only on their competence and credentials but also on their general attitude towards client care.
Ultimately, it is their wholehearted compassion and dedication that ensures the client’s wellbeing. Attitude cannot be taught in school. Compassion and a positive attitude are what matter most in the field of caregiving and that’s what CAPITAL HOME CARE looks for most, when recruiting caregivers.
To ensure that our clients are getting the best service possible, we require the following from our caregivers during our application/screening process:
- CPR and First Aid Certifications
- Reference checking with previous employers
- State required health screenings
- Verification of active CNA / CMT / GNA / LPN / RN licenses or certificates
- Personal and panel interviews
- Criminal background check
- Skills competency check by Registered Nurse
Once hired, the caregivers are subjected to Pre-Deployment Orientation. They also have a Continuing Education Plan and Ongoing Assessments conducted by Capital Home Care nurses at regular intervals.
Our caregivers are monitored and assessed by Capital Home Care Registered Nurses in the field, all of which are supervised by the Capital Home Care Director of Nursing. Even more stringent screenings, and verifications processes apply to the nurses in the field and in the office.
In-home care services offered by competent caregivers are available throughout the states of Maryland and Virginia.
We understand that our clients need culturally sensitive care and we have a rich cultural mix of multi-lingual caregivers, including but not limited to: Spanish Speaking Caregivers, Hindi Speaking Caregivers, Mandarin Speaking Caregivers, Cantonese Speaking Caregivers, Farsi Speaking Caregivers, Urdu Speaking Caregivers, Arabic Speaking Caregivers, Amharic Speaking Caregivers, Vietnamese speaking Caregivers, Farsi speaking Caregivers and more. Additionally, all of our caregivers are fluent in English.
