Responsibilities

Whether you have someone in your family who is recovering from surgery, an elderly person who needs help with activities of daily living or a person with a chronic condition who requires help with personal care and companionship, a professional Caregiver can provide invaluable energy and aid. A Caregiver can live in or outside the household and is prepared to provide the level of care appropriate to the situation. We’re here to make it easy for you to find the right one for your family.

We know how important the safety of your family and your home is. We work hard to screen all of our Caregivers and check every reference. We practice “full disclosure” which means that we share all pertinent information about candidates with our clients so that you can make a fully informed hiring decision. We’ll never withhold information from you just to push a candidate through. We will keep you informed of our progress screening your chosen candidates throughout your search.

It is important to us that you feel confident that the Caregiver you hire through Town + Country will maintain the safety and security of your home as well as your personal belongings and private information. Just as important, we work closely with you to understand your family’s unique needs so that we can match you with a Caregiver who will be a great fit.
