All of our caregivers are employees of Amdal In-Home Care, which means we handle liability insurance, worker's compensation insurance and payroll tax reporting. Our caregivers are thoroughly screened, tested and oriented to Amdal In-Home Care policies and procedures. We utilize a thorough caregiver skills-matching system which documents what specific abilities and knowledge each caregiver has. Only caregivers that have the skills you require will be considered for your case.
Caregivers are always introduced into the home by your local office Care Coordinator. The plan of care is reviewed and the caregiver will be oriented to your case before he or she is brought into the home for an introduction. Not everyone makes a personality match. If you request a different caregiver, we will work with you to find out why and, as appropriate, replace the caregiver with one who is a better fit in your home environment.
