What Sets Sequoia Companion Care Apart
The state of California requires the following for personal care attendants to provide companion care through an agency:
In addition to the required state regulations, Sequoia Companion Care requires the following from our personal care attendants before care can be provided to our clients:
These added requirements are what help set our personal care attendants and Sequoia Companion Care apart from other agencies. Before hiring an in-home personal care attendant or agency, be sure to check and see what qualifications the companion care agency requires from personal care attendants prior to employment.
Unskilled medical assistance is offered in the way of daily medication reminders. Our personal care attendants do not set up medications, give injections, or determine when a medication may be given. They can, however, remind a client when to take their medication, or assist in a non-medical manner with client self administration.
Our personal care attendants can prepare a light meal for the client whether it be from a requested recipe or meal plan--or simply whipping up a light meal. Special dietary needs are placed on the care plan for viewing and discussed at time of plan set up.
Whether it be providing non-medical services or simply companionship, our trained personal care attendants are matched up for compatibility and client satisfaction. Personal care attendants are screened upon hire with two reference checks, drug testing, fingerprinting, and background checks. Personal care attendants are TB tested, pass a physical, and are trained with monthly classes. They are competency screened after training upon hire. Personal care attendants also are required to have a valid drivers license for client transport or running errands. Sequoia Companion Care is licensed, insured and bonded. We are RN owned and operated.
Trained personal care assistants will assist in areas of need such as personal grooming, bathing, dressing, stand-by ambulation, transfers, toileting, meal preparation, transportation and errands, medication reminders, laundry, and light housekeeping. Our personal care attendants receive training from physical therapists in an on-site skills lab for use of equipment and transfer training using proper and safe techniques.
