“We see caregivers as an asset that should be cultivated
as opposed to an expense that can be reduced.”
This quotation is a core value of Keep Safe Care and is so important to how we approach the private duty business, that we put it as the first item on our Policies and Procedure document. It is simple, Keep Safe Care wants to change the paradigm in caregiving, and it all starts with the individuals doing the important work – you – the Caregiver. As managers and founders, we understand hard work and we strive for making things better, not only for ourselves, but for those who work with us. We believe in doing more than what is expected because it is the right thing to do.
Part of this change comes from first and foremost in how we see our relationship with caregivers. Most private duty agencies try to maximize their profits, often to the detriment of caregivers. Instead, Keep Safe Care uses operational efficiencies to eliminate unnecessary costs, and as such, we can afford to pay you more. So, our gain is your gain. The savings we get from the deployment of our software in recruiting, curating, and management of caregivers allows us to pay you higher than the industry average.
Secondly, we see you as a partner in making this change in the caregiving industry work. While many in the industry categorize caregivers as non-skilled labor, we do not. Instead, we feel all caregivers are skilled. Some offer care in a clinical environment while others offer care in the home, but the work still requires a set of learned care skills as well as the ability to care for others.
Keep Safe Care is different from other private duty agencies in that we ask you if you would like to work with a particular client. If you do not feel comfortable caring for that individual, we will not place you there. Being involved with your own job placement is a completely different approach in the private duty industry.
Keep Safe Care takes a team approach. We have open communication line for you to let us know how we can improve. At times, we will ask you for your inputs and insights in how we can make Keep Safe Care a great place to work. We feel strongly that the only way we can improve, is to get honest and prompt feedback, from you, our customers and partners
Keep Safe Care empowers caregiving – and that means you. In addition to paying a higher than market wage that is commensurate with your skills, we believe strongly that Caregivers are the backbone of our success.
