Caregiver Selector

Use this tool to answer the question... "What type of caregiver do I need?"

The Caregiver Selector tool prepares families to hire the right caregiver to care for their loved ones at home. CNAs, aides, homemakers, companions, practical nurses, and other caregiver titles are confusing to the newcomer exploring in-home care. This tool further clarifies which type of in-home agency supplies the caregiver that families are seeking. Hiring a caregiver who has the required training but is not under or over qualified avoids wasted time and needless expense.
