Once you’ve been able to identify that your loved one has a need for care at home, the next step is researching and hiring a caregiver. Figuring out how to find a caregiver that is not only qualified, but is also the right personality fit for your parent, can be challenging. Luckily, thanks to the dedicated Senior Care Specialists we have on staff here, when you work with CaregivrersDirect to find a caregiver for your loved one, the process becomes simple and easy.
How to Find A Caregiver With TANDEM
Our Senior Care Specialists go beyond simply matching caregivers with care seekers. We help families secure the care, facilitate communication, and help build relationships that can have a long-lasting and positive impact on the entire family.
Step One: We Get To Know You
Through one-on-one phone calls with a Senior Care Specialist, we get to know you and your loved one. We’ll take note of any health conditions and preferences in order to assess your requirements for receiving in-home care. Then, we’ll build out your care profile so that we can match you with the best caregiver for your needs.
Step Two: We Thoroughly Vet Our Caregivers
All of the caregivers that are invited into the Tandem network are vetted thoroughly--complete with background checks, reference checks, and U.S. work eligibility verification. We build out our caregiver profiles by asking them about their schedule and availability, ability to work overnight shifts, and what their desired hourly rate is.
Step Three: Curated Caregiver Options Based On Your Needs
Our approach is human and personal. Our Senior Care Specialists will carefully curate your caregiver options, presenting you with three to five different caregivers that are in alignment with both your needs for receiving care at home, and your loved one’s personality.
Step Four: Pick The Perfect Caregiver
Once you review the profiles of all the caregivers that our Senior Care Specialists have matched with your loved one, you can choose one to hire right away, or pick a few to interview over the phone or in-person. If you want to interview prospective caregivers, use our caregiver interview guide to be sure you’re asking the right questions.
Taking In-Home Care To The Next Level
Tandem provides clients with the ability to live a full, independent life in their own homes. Our personal approach to matching care receivers with the right caregivers is a small component in the bigger ecosystem of caregiving that our service provides. From the very beginning, we are with you at every step of the way--from choosing the perfect caregiver, to working with family, health care providers, and neighbors to close the communication feedback loop, to changing your in-home care plan as your loved one’s needs evolve.
