Our CareGivers…

Our CareGivers at Right at Home Colchester & District want more than a job. They want to make a difference in the lives of those in their care. And to ensure only the best CareGivers join us, we have a rigorous selection process that includes personal interviews, competency testing, psychometric testing, reference checks and background clearance.

We also ask ourselves a simple question – would I trust the CareGiver to look after my own mother in her home? We only recruit if the answer is a definite ‘yes’.

Once a CareGiver meets our strict criteria, it’s just the beginning. Each goes through a training and orientation process that guides them through our values and standards; going above and beyond the national legal requirements. They are given training on issues that help them develop as better overall CareGivers, as well as to deal with very specific situations.
