Use of Cloth Face Coverings to Help Slow the Spread of COVID-19
Texas has recently issued a mandate requiring the use of a mask that covers your nose and mouth when it is difficult to practice social distancing in a public place. Coverings may be masks, scarfs, bandannas or a handkerchief. We are requiring that you follow the recommended practice when working with your client. If you can not practice social distancing while in the home you should wear a mask.
We have masks and face shield available for you in the office. If you do not have a mask please contact the office and make arrangements to get one as soon as possible.

Recommended Practices while in the Home.
- Model proper hygiene practices for clients and caregivers, such as proper handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, and the use of hand sanitizer.
- Practice social distancing. Social distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness and staying at least 6 feet away from other people. Current guidance states to stay at least 6 feet away from other people.
- Continue your practice of using gloves when supporting clients.
- Regularly disinfect all high-touch surfaces, such as counters, doorknobs, telephones, computer keyboards, and any other household electronic or communication devices.
- If the client or household members have no fever or concerning symptoms (such as a cough or shortness of breath), proceed with the scheduled service under standard operating procedures.
- If the client or household members have a fever or concerning symptoms,
such as a cough or shortness of breath, adhere to the following:
- Notify your employer, or the person you talk to about your shifts, and follow reporting procedures for your local area. If needed, assist the client when calling their health care provider.
FAQs About Applying
Frequently Asked Questions about applying for employment as a caregiver or CNA.
Can I just drop in to fill out an application?
No. We ask that you phone the office first so that we can conduct a phone interview to determine your interest in being a Caregiver and your suitability for this type of career. The HR department will review the results of the phone interview and will call potential applicants to schedule an appointment for a personal interview. One-on-one interviews are done by appointment only to ensure adequate time can be devoted to each applicant.Apply Here
Do I have to be a certified nursing assistant (CNA)?
No. It is preferable that the Caregiver have at least one year of experience or have graduated from a CNA type of course, but the overriding factors are possessing the compassion, reliability, and aptitude for this field. Caregivers with less experience will begin their careers with clients that require primarily companionship and homemaking tasks.
What do I need to bring to the interview?
At a minimum you will need to bring your driver’s license, social security card, vehicle insurance, proof of TB test if taken within the last year, training certificates (CNA, first aid, CPR, etc), and references. We will need a minimum of four references…two professional and two personal (not a relative). We will need up to date contact information for each reference because we will contact each one to ask them a few questions. Other forms of identification may be acceptable. Talk to the Human Resources department for additional information.
Do I need my own transportation?
We recommend Caregivers have their own, dependable form of transportation. New Clients often call with immediate home care needs and with little notice, leaving little time for Caregivers without their own transportation to arrange for a ride to the Client’s home. The bus system has expanded greatly over the last several months, but they often drop riders off outside of neighborhoods requiring lengthy walks into subdivisions where our Clients reside.
How do you make decisions on placing Caregivers?
The coordinators make placements based on the Caregiver’s personality, skills, experience, availability, previous client’s feedback, demonstrated reliability and where they live.
