The Role of a Caregiver
A caregiver is trained to provide special care to an elderly individual or one with special needs. A caregiver typically has a combination of education and experience working with Alzheimer’s or dementia, Parkinson’s, paralysis, cerebral palsy, and many other medical conditions. Their primary responsibility is to attend to the personal care needs of your loved one.
The Service Diamond Provides
Diamond Personnel offers an excellent alternative to institutionalized care. Our Eldercare and Special Needs caregivers allow seniors, persons with disabilities and individuals with special needs to remain in their own homes while receiving optimal personalized care.
You or a family member will receive one-on-one care from a high-quality and experienced caregiver. Many of our caregivers will also assist with household duties such as cooking and cleaning. This level of personalized care is not available in any public or private long-term care facility.
All of our applicants meet our strict screening criteria (see Diamond Screening). Our candidates have several years of experience working with the elderly or special needs individuals, and many have completed specialized geriatric training and are certified Personal Support Workers. We specialize in full-time, live out placements. Most of our candidates work five days per week. If necessary, 24-hour care and weekend relief can also be arranged with multiple caregivers.
If caring for a family member has become increasingly challenging, the staff at Diamond Personnel can help.
