Although the majority of our clients are seniors, we have worked with people from ages 19 to 102!
The advantages of choosing a home care company like With A Little Help are many. The monetary cost of hiring a private caregiver can be very attractive, but the burden of time in interviewing, doing background checks and checking employment history to ensure that you have found a trustworthy person is not to be underestimated and is extremely important! The legalities of dealing with payroll taxes need to be considered along with coverage should a work related injury occur while in your home. By choosing With A Little Help you are ensuring you have a trustworthy and caring professional in your home. We also make sure you still get the care you need if our caregiver is sick or on vacation.
With a Little Help takes pride in the education we provide to our staff. Our caregivers are certified by the state of Washington (typically certified nursing assistants or home care aides) and most have additional trainings, certifications and experience. We provide free and unlimited on-line continuing education as well as free quarterly in-person trainings and an annual two day care conference with a full line-up of speakers and classes related to caregiving.
In addition to training, we take our hiring process very seriously and work hard to hire stellar, reliable caregivers. We have an extensive screening process that includes phone and in-person interviews, calls to references and prior employers, a national criminal background check and a driving history report. We then spend time getting to know each new caregiver during our extensive orientation process.
With a Little Help draws its dedicated and reliable caregivers from a variety of backgrounds that have a passion for helping people. We provide a warm and supportive work environment which has led to low attrition and an average caregiver tenure of three and half years.
Our intent is to find a caregiver who will establish a warm and respectful relationship with you. Once we have you set up on a regular schedule, you should have the same caregiver or team of caregivers every visit, however, we can’t guarantee it. Caregivers do go on vacation and if, for any reason, your regular caregiver(s) cannot fill an assigned shift, we will do everything we can to provide you with an appropriate substitute. Making sure that a qualified caregiver is at your door when promised is our commitment to you.
Yes. Fluency in both written and spoken English is a requirement for all caregivers and we test to be certain. Caregivers who drive on behalf of a client are required to have a valid driver’s license, proof of insurance, and a verified good driving record.
We place great emphasis on building and maintaining relationships between our caregivers and clients. The kind things seniors, their families and professionals say about our care is our greatest reward at With a Little Help. We think our clients are the best!
You are exceptionally reliable, always very helpful, kind and on time. Everyone who comes is just WONDERFUL.
My deepest gratitude to you all, who with your love and care touched Gerhard’s heart and made it possible for him to spend his last years at home with dignity.
Vandy is one of the best caregivers we have experienced in the last two and a half years. She is a self-starter, initiates tasks on her own. She doesn’t need to be directed step by step.
Your service provides care and love to the elderly, all with respect and dignity. Your folks took such good care of mother, and we are forever grateful for their love and friendship.
They were more than caregivers, they actually cared! Especially at a time that was so trying for me.
I have been very happy with your services. I live in Ashland, OR, and it is comforting to know Vicki can call you and make arrangements. Your staff has been wonderful in all areas.
Emily makes a huge effort to engage Jim in activities that he can do. This is extremely challenging! Today they made scones together. This extra effort is most appreciated!
We couldn’t have made it through this difficult time without all of you.
You are all truly wonderful people, and we appreciate you all more than you can ever know. We have been truly blessed to know you all and to have you all as a part of our lives. Our love and thanks to you all.
I was thrilled with the warmth and compassion Barbara shared with my mother. And I greatly appreciated her email updates. Knowing that she was my mother’s “caregiver friend” allowed me to relax and enjoy/appreciate our magnificent journey.
I wanted to let you know how much our family appreciates Sarel’s assistance to my mom. She is not only helpful but her thoughtfulness and care made my mom feel immediately comfortable with her. She now looks forward to her visits and so enjoys her being there and willingness to help with so many different things.
I’ve been blessed in connecting with wonderful people and resources like yours since my Mom’s diagnosis of Alzheimer’s last summer. I’m grateful that organizations like With a Little Help are out there to lend a hand when it’s most needed.
Liz is my mother’s favorite person! And her Monday afternoons, talking with Liz and getting her home in order and things washed up, is her greatest luxury. We treasure Liz and her kind and gentle ways and we are grateful that she is Mom’s caregiver.
Katherine’s caregiver, Sarel, is a kind and wonderful person. She not only helps Katherine with her exercise and therapy but she gives her emotional support and incentive as well. Most of all, she is a good friend!
I hope all of you know how very much Doris adores Sarel and what a great job she does! She is a real blessing to us both, and we are grateful to have her help!
Matinay is kind, insightful, respectful, caring and a great cook! THE BEST.
I believe that there is no better care possible than that given by your caregivers. Each of them is highly competent, extremely considerate, thoughtful, caring, and articulate. The office staff follows suit. In this challenging and anxious time of life for both Claire and her family, With a Little Help provides exemplary support in all ways.
It took forever for us to convince Georgia to try home care. By Jo’s second visit, Georgia couldn’t wait for her to come again. We were amazed! She loves Jo’s cooking, enjoys the conversations they have and gets so much pleasure out of the laughs they share. Jo has done the miraculous.
