Frequently Asked Questions

How are your caregivers selected?

Our caregivers go through a rigorous screening and recruiting process. In addition to having the right temperament for this type of work, they’ve been trained in our high standards. We carefully match the client with the caregiver(s) we believe best meets their needs. For ongoing childcare with a family, we choose several caregivers we think are a good match. Then you interview them and make the final selection.

What types of checks do your caregivers go through?

All of our caregivers undergo local and national criminal background investigation and reference checks. They have a driver’s license and a good driving record. We require they are trained in First Aid and CPR.

Is your agency insured?

A Friend of the Family is licensed and insured. All of our caregivers are covered by Workers’ Compensation insurance.

How do you set up a care plan?

The process begins with us asking you lots of questions to get an understanding of the type of care you want for your child. Then we customize a care schedule and select a caregiver(s) who we believe would be the best fit.

Are services available 24/7?

Yes, our caregivers work days, nights, weekends and holidays. We have a four-hour visit minimum.

How soon can you begin providing home care services?

We can usually provide services within 24 hours.

The Most Prepared and Helpful Sitter We’ve Ever Had

I am consistently pleased with the prompt and courteous service that we have received from A Friend of the Family. I am writing to let you know that I was particularly impressed with C. White! She was the most prepared and helpful sitter we’ve had to date! I will request her again and again and tell others to do the same. I hope that you will pass along my complements.

Kept a Detailed Log of Feedings, Diaper Changes, etc.

Denise had a great interaction with my son.  He obviously took to her quite easily.  She kept in touch throughout the day regarding their activities and kept a detailed log of feeding, diaper changes, etc.  He was sad for her to leave and watched her walk all the way out to her car.  She was great and can’t wait to have her back again!
