Caregiver Credentialing & Training

At Senior Helpers, we place the utmost importance on ensuring our caregivers receive the latest training and are fully credentialed.

Professional and Dependable

Senior Helpers hires our companions and personal caregivers based on their experience, professionalism, and compassion for seniors. We only hire experienced employees that continue to advance their knowledge of senior care through Senior Helpers University and additional training seminars and activities. We match our licensed, bonded and insured caregivers with the specific needs of our clients. Caregivers are continually monitored by their supervisor and also receive ongoing evaluations based on your input. The result is a consistent, working relationship so beneficial that our clients often say their helpers are more than caregivers; they're lifegivers. Senior Helpers has professional personal companions and personal caregivers that:

  • Are employees of our company, not subcontractors
  • Have clear background checks with both the State of Nevada and the FBI
  • Submit to a pre-employment physical documenting good health and provide us with a clear 2-step TB test
  • Have a clean driving record
  • Are bonded and insured
  • Drug Tested
  • Receive ongoing Continuing Education
  • Are available immediately for short or long term
  • Compassionate and dependable

Our trained, professional caregivers provide our clients with as little or as much assistance as they need.

Who are they?

All of our caregivers have experience working with seniors and we always check references to insure they have provided excellent care in the past. Many have worked in the health care field, and prefer to work one-on-one with our clients to provide individual attention. We hire many caregivers with specific knowledge in Alzheimer's, Dementia, Parkinson’s, Stroke, Diabetes and much more. Most importantly, we have the systems in place and take the time to match the appropriate companions or personal caregivers with your specific requirements.


We have developed a training program called Senior Helpers University. We believe quality and consistent training for all our companions and personal caregivers will enhance their job performance, help them deliver outstanding care, and ultimately lead to an exceptional customer experience for our clients.

All of our companions and personal caregivers are required to complete caregiver training before ever being introduced to a client of Senior Helpers. Topics Include:



  • Client Confidentiality
  • Hand Washing and Infection Control
  • Nutrition and Hydration for Seniors
  • Preventing Falls & Contractures
  • Aging & the Skin

  • Range of Motion for Seniors
  • Communication & Dealing with Adverse Behaviors
  • Special Needs of Elderly Clients
  • Transfers for Seniors
  • Bowel Bladder & Incontinence Care for Seniors

In addition ongoing training is required as well as specialty training designed to address specific client care needs. We believe in the importance of training our companions and personal caregivers and rewarding them for their achievements. We provide incentives for our employees as we know that will directly translate to an improved quality of life for our clients.
