At ComForCare Scottsdale, we know that in order to provide high-quality home care services to the families we work with, we only hire the most qualified individuals to be a part of our team. At ComForCare, we take great pride in the caregivers we select. To select our caregivers, we have a rigorous 10-step hiring process to ensure they meet all of our standards for excellence.
Each one of our professional caregivers is experienced and highly trained in home care best practices. We provide continuous education to ensure the most up-to-date care techniques are used when caring for our clients.
In order to develop strong, trusting relationships between clients and caregivers, we carefully match clients with caregivers whose interests, life experiences and personalities complement their own. Before we ever select caregivers, we meet with clients, take note of their personality and speak with them about their life history, which helps us select the most compatible caregiver.
We are happy to call each of these individuals members of our ComForCare Scottsdale team:
