Caregivers are the heart and soul of any home care agency. Selection of caregivers is an important task for the agency. The process reflects the agency's commitment to their core values and standards of care.
Our process for selection of caregivers starts with basic professional requirements. A candidate chosen for an interview must either be a CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant), be a Nursing Student with relevant clinical experience or have a minimum of two years documented experience working for another Home Care Agency, a Long Term Care facility or a Memory Care Unit. Once determined to meet these requirement, caregivers are evaluated for personality traits that identify if caregiving is in their heart or if this is just another job. Texas Angels Home Care's strives to only hire those caregivers with caring in their heart's.
Once in the interview stage, caregivers must present themselves in a professional manner and display the characteristics of a caregiver worthy of being called a Texas Angel. Our standards are high and exceed those set forth by the State of Texas CNA certifying board. Successful candidates will be further screened in a rigorous vetting program. The vetting process includes searching Global, Federal and Local Criminal Databases to review: National, State & County Criminal Record Checks; Social Security Number Fraud Check; State of Texas Employee Misconduct Registry for caregivers & Nurse Aide Registry; Sex and Violent Offenders Record; Employment, Educational, Certification Verification; Motor Vehicle Records, including valid Driver's License, dependable transportation and automobile insurance; Medical Suitability; Testing for Illicit Drugs (on hire and randomly); and Dept. of Homeland Security E-Verify citizenship and guest worker status. Typically, averaged over the past 5 years, only about 1 out of 40 candidates make it to through the Interview to the Orientation Phase.
The Orientation Program is designed to teach our new caregivers the Texas Angels' way. Orientation also provides an extra opportunity to further assess their caregiving skills, manner and overall attitude. 1 out of 6 candidates do not make it past the Orientation Phase.
Active Texas Angels' caregivers continue their education through an Annual Education Program and periodic Skills Training. Caregivers are required to maintain their CPR certification.
