Rigorous Screening Process

Caregiver with Alzheimer's PatientAcorn evaluates caregivers with a rigorous 13-step screening process that includes interviews, background checks, skills evaluations, aptitude assessments and reference checks.   Unlike some agencies that only perform a state background check, we run a full nationwide check.  But you can’t select great caregivers based on background checks.  We are personally involved in evaluating every caregiver.  We always ask, “Would we hire this person to care for our parents?”  Read more here.

Caregiver Personality Assessments

As a first step, all candidates must take a personality assessment.  This is a screening tool that matches candidates against the characteristics of the industry’s best caregivers.  Similar to tests used by large corporations to determine the “fit” of job applicants, our personality assessment measures caregivers on a spectrum of personality dimensions such as reliability, compassion and integrity.  Our investment in personality screening helps assure that our caregivers are individuals who really care.  Read more here.
