    Caregivers Referred by NurtureCare

    NurtureCare, a consumer directed model of care, refers independent Caregivers to families who want to be actively involved in all aspects of care for their loved ones. The client/family member determines the care to be provided, the hours and days care is needed, and can negotiate the rate directly with the Caregiver. NurtureCare charges the client a referral fee. This allows us to carefully and thoroughly vet Caregivers, be available to locate back- up care as needed, and be available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The Caregivers referred by NurtureCare have a minimum of 2 years of experience caring for older adults, and we spend a significant amount of time verifying their references and conducting various background checks (see below). As independent Caregivers, they are responsible to carry their own professional liability insurance, and occupational accidental insurance which works similarly to workers compensation insurance.


    Careful Screening

    To ensure the safety and security of clients, various background checks are conducted to give a clear and comprehensive picture of the Caregivers we are referring to families. Most of the Caregivers come to NurtureCare through word of mouth. The process begins once the Recruiter determines that the Caregiver has been trained, and has at least 2 years of actual hands-on experience with older adults. In addition to verifying certificates and licenses, work references are thoroughly checked, and background checks are conducted which include:

    • national background check
    • local court record search
    • credit check
    • motor vehicle check
    • social security trace
    • sex offender check

    The hallmark of NurtureCare is to refer clients the highest caliber Caregivers in the marketplace, this ensures a responsible, reliable and qualified Caregiver for your loved one.
