The Best At Home Caregivers Our Community Has to Offer!
Look close and you will see, not all caregiving companies are created equal. The success of our organization is born out of the skill and compassion of our Caregivers and our internal management team. Your peace of mind is a driving force of our business. Contact us online or call us at (866) 940-4343.
Since 1994, we’ve been honored to work with literally hundreds of amazing caregivers. We are extremely fortunate to have many employees with us for more than fifteen years. There are just certain people that were put on earth to assist others and make the world a better place. Below we’re featuring profiles of some of our outstanding at home caregivers. We mean this when we say, without their dedication and hard work we would be nothing.
In-Home Caregiving You Need from a Company You Can Trust
As a full service, non-medical caregiving company, our Caregivers are our Employees. This means we handle all legally-required employer responsibilities (including all wages, taxes, and Workers’ Compensation). This is an important aspect in your choosing your caregiving company. You can be assured each Hired Hands Homecare caregiver is insured and bonded, and has gone through rigorous screening, orientation and training.
Many of our caregivers have a Certified Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide Certification, and have extensive experience working with the elderly and disabled. We practice ongoing staff education, management, appreciation and recognition, to ensure our consistent, high-quality level of service. We’ve also have specialized Alzheimer’s/Dementia and Hospice Teams to help deal with these unique and difficult situations.
To learn more about how we have the best at home caregivers providing in home care and hospice care in Pleasanton, CA and the surrounding area has to offer, contact the Hired Hands Homecare team today! For more information about our service area, click here.
“I want to thank everyone at Hired Hands Homecare. It has been a pleasure to serve as a home care aide for this agency. I am especially grateful for the opportunity that was entrusted in me in proving care and assistance for our wonderful clients. Everyone’s guidance and support were considerable motivations for my professional development and growth. My time at Hired Hands has been exceptional and was nothing but positive and encouraging for future endeavors. It has been an honor to be part of such a wonderful team.” ~ Professional Caregiver Oliver A.
