Q: How do you select your caregivers?
A: During our 10-Step Screening Process, part of which includes meticulously checking caregivers for homecare experience, running E-verify to ensure they are legally able to work in the US and running a DMV check. Additionally, our caregivers must clear a criminal background check (which is run through the DOJ and FBI), pass a drug test and register as a California Home Care Aide.
Q: How do you supervise your caregivers, ensuring accurate time reporting?
A: Pacific Senior Care uses an advanced Real Time Caregiver Monitoring System that requires our caregivers to clock in and out through an app on their phone. The app is connected with GPS which allows us to effectively track hours and confirm attendance in real-time. Our system will notify us if a caregiver has not clocked in or out as scheduled. In addition, Pacific Senior Care conducts routine follow up calls, supervisory visits, and unannounced management quality assurance check-ins so our clients receive the best possible in-home care.
