Our Trained Staff
Our aides are highly trained in our extensive certified home health aide training program approved by the New York State Department of Health. Additionally, our aides do extensive additional education and training to care for members with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, mental illness, substance abuse, and who are at end of life. To give clients peace of mind, we conduct criminal background checks, which includes work history, references, and drug and alcohol screenings.
