In the quiet, comforting spaces of your home, where memories reside in every corner, the presence of a caregiver is not just about assistance – it’s about trust, understanding, and an extension of family. At 2nd Family of Central Maryland, we profoundly understand this bond. Therefore, our process of selecting and nurturing our caregiving team is meticulous, ensuring that your loved one is in the safest and most capable hands.


The Initial Step: Screening with Heart and Expertise

Our journey begins with a careful screening process. Every potential member of our caregiving team must possess not only the essential certifications – including Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and CPR licenses – but also a valid driver’s license and auto insurance. However, beyond these qualifications lies a deeper scrutiny. We delve into their backgrounds using several thorough tools, ensuring their history aligns with our commitment to safety and integrity, which are the foundation of the Grandma Guarantee.

All caregivers are:

  • Licensed with the state of Maryland
  • Possess a valid CPR certificate
  • Have a driver’s license and car insurance
  • Insured and bonded through 2nd Family of Central Maryland
  • Oriented and vetted by the Director of Nursing
  • Continually trained and coached by our Care Coordinators


Embarking on the Path: Training that Nurtures and Empowers

Upon successfully navigating the initial phase, each caregiver embarks on an immersive orientation course. This is not merely an introduction; it’s a foundational chapter that shapes their understanding of our approach to in-home care. Our Director of Nursing, a beacon of knowledge and compassion, personally connects with each caregiver. This meeting is not just a formality; it’s an essential dialogue, establishing a bond and a shared vision of care that dignifies and respects.


The Continuum of Growth: Ongoing Learning and Support

The learning journey for our caregiving team is continuous. They receive ongoing training and support, tailored not just to uphold standards, but to exceed them. Our Care Coordinators play a pivotal role in this. They provide regular informal training sessions, updates on best practices in senior care, and emotional support that is vital in this heartfelt profession. Since our Care Coordinators manage the care provided to each client, the training and feedback is targeted, personalized, and in real time. Our coaching isn’t just “how to handle this situation”, but rather “how to handle this specific situation with this specific client.”
