All caregivers are experienced in caring for elders and dedicated to high standards, quality care and personal attention.  Many have earned other certifications and have received first aid and CPR training.  We do our best to match a qualified caregiver to your individual needs, and we provide open communications to family members on and off the island.  Scheduling, timekeeping and compensation are the responsibility of the program administrator unless caregivers are independent contractors.

Independent contractors are paid directly by clients at a predetermined rate.  IN Home Care will coordinate scheduling and coverage, but we are not responsible for compensation.  Clients are responsible for providing contract help with end-of-year tax information.
