Just like nurses and doctors, Professional Caregivers have chosen a careerin compassionate care of those in need. Kwikfix implements a rigorousscreening and vetting System which includes a comprehensivebackground check and screening for compassion, identity, integrity, andcompetence. Less than 5% of all applicants meet our stringent screen andwe rarely advertise for caregivers as most come from word of mouthreferral from other happy clients.
Our Golden Rule states ‘We will not refer a caregiver into your home thatwe would not welcome into our own home.’ This is our high bar set, thebackbone of our mission. Similar to any working professional, caregiversare attracted to organizations that have trust, compassion, stability, andhope. We encourage you to meet one of our local Care Manager as theywill treat you with as much compassion and dignity as they afford to eachcaregiver they refer.
Contact us and we’ll refer another caregiver quickly at no additional cost.
Our Buddypairing Process works with each family to understand whatunique skills and personality are desired in a caregiver. Feedback fromsatisfied clients usually indicates that a personality match is the #1 factorin a caregiver match, so we highly encourage client input. We will thenmake a referral based on our experience and your input.
We make the process of finding a caregiver very simple and prompt usingour Kwikcare Placement program. Give us a call and we’ll conduct a briefphone discussion to understand your needs.
