Unlike most home health care agencies, Commonwise Home Care has stringent caregiver qualifications. We value your family like they are our own.


How to Become a Caregiver

As this Washington Post article demonstrates, clients who receive care in their homes can be vulnerable to theft and financial abuse. At Commonwise Home Care, we take caregiving seriously to protect our patients from unfortunate situations like that.

Every application for a caregiving position at Commonwise is vetted as if that individual was taking care of our own family member.

  • We go far beyond your standard screening processes.
  • We created a proprietary, evidence-based methodology to evaluate potential caregivers.
  • We only hire the best of the best.
  • We invest heavily in our interview processes to weed out candidates who have the potential to exploit clients.

Our in-depth testing and screening system ensures that all prospective employees are fully vetted and trained before they join our Care Team. Maybe you’ve considered becoming a caregiver yourself and thought, “What qualifications do I need to be a caregiver?” The industry is not easy to break into because there is a certain caliber we look for in the caretakers at our agency.

We aim to hire the most gifted, honest and professional caregivers in the industry—and we believe that we do. Learn more about how we find, hire and train the best caregivers in the field.
