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.
