All Silver Companions caregivers are thoroughly screened and a detailed background check and professional reference check is completed.

Silver Companions works diligently to find compassionate and reliable caregivers who will provide outstanding care. We only hire warmhearted, well trained and experienced caregivers. In most cases, the same companion will be sent each time to ensure continuity of care.  Also, a care coordinator will accompany the caregiver to provide a personal introduction to the client.  This process helps ensure that the client is comfortable and at ease with the caregiver.

Every caregiver undergoes a thorough screening process to ensure that we only present the most qualified caregivers. Silver Companions caregivers are carefully selected and matched to meet your needs. If you are unsatisfied with the home care worker, then they will be removed promptly and another will be referred. We encourage your involvement in the decision-making process. You must be satisfied with a caregiver, since you are the one receiving care.

We go to great lengths in our screening criteria:

  • In-depth personal interview to determine skill set and experience
  • Extensive Criminal Background Check
  • License/certificate verification in accordance with State of GA
  • Detailed Reference checks
  • Dementia Training for better communication
  • Health screenings
  • Drug Screening
  • TB Test
  • CPR & First Aid certification
  • Blood-borne pathogens training
  • Meal Planning Training
  • On-going Training

Once approved for hire, each caregiver undergoes a thorough orientation prior to placement. Caregivers are assessed every 90 days with client and management input, including performance reviews by our Registered Nurse.
