Many of our independent Caregivers have nursing assistant (C.N.A.) or other healthcare-related backgrounds, such as nursing, massage or acupuncture studies. They specialize in “medical” caregiving, including hospice care. Caregivers must possess basic caregiving skills and have a balance of experience, training and social skills in order to be placed on our registry. Additionally, Caregivers are required to have their own cell phone, cars and e-mail, for quick response.
Caregivers are screened in a 6-part screening process:
- Phone pre-screening
- Group interview and quiz
- 1:1 interview with recruiter
- Work references verified
- Criminal background check, including driving history
- Ongoing client feedback
Our liability policy does not cover Caregivers while driving. We check personal Caregiver auto insurance cards upon admittance to our registry, but cannot guarantee that it remains current after they are accepted. Therefore, clients should verify that Caregiver auto insurance is current, or consider providing their own transportation.
Consumers should check homeowner’s insurance for adequate liability coverage.
Caregiver Connection, Inc. is a referral service that matches screened and qualified Caregivers with clients who hire them directly for a referral fee. Caregivers may be considered domestic employees of clients. We recommend consulting with a tax or accounting professional and/or enlisting a payroll service such as HomePay or Paychex.
Paychex - Visit the Paychex website or contact Zach Adams at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503.277.0296.
Consumers are not required to carry Worker's Compensation insurance on independent Caregivers in Oregon. Worker’s compensation is not covered in this arrangement. Caregivers are covered for liability for their own "errors" while in your home.
