Lighthouse Home Care is very selective in our hiring process. Only experienced caregivers become employees of our company. They must be caring and competent. A meticulous, national arrest record and criminal background check, a Department of Motor Vehicle history report, reference check, employment verification, CNA registry and OIG checks and drug test are completed on all potential employees. An in-depth interview is also conducted.

Because our caregivers are employees, the company is responsible for all payroll taxes, workers compensation and liability insurances and bonding. They must follow our Policies and Procedures and participate in ongoing in-service training.

Our goal is to provide quality service. That begins at the interview and continues with education and supervision. We respect and value our staff. Therefore, we offer a competitive benefits package, an annual scholarship, bonuses and exceptional service recognition.
