CareFirst caregivers are trained by an in-house nurse manager. In addition, we meet or exceed the training standards set forth by the State of Alabama and The Office of Senior Citizens.

Bonded & Insured

As an added protection for our clients, all of our employees are fully covered for liability while on the job.

24-Hours Availability

Someone is on call 24 hours. Speak to a live person and get immediate results–not an answering machine!

Drug Screening

Drug screens are performed initially, and also throughout the year. In addition to background checks, we check for any abuse history, fraud, and sex offense.

Background Checks

As a condition of employment, caregivers consent to a criminal background check. They must maintain an offense-free record to be employed by CareFirst.

Alzheimer's Specialists

CareFirst caregivers have access to the best, high quality training program which includes Alzheimer's and Dementia Training recognized by the Alzheimer's Association. The employee training and monthly continuing education program is managed by our supportive and knowledgeable nurse manager. In addition, our caregivers are experienced in dealing with dementia patients. Applied knowledge equals experience, and our goal is to bring peace of mind to family members who are impacted by this disease.
