Accessing the Service
The U-M Work/Life Resource Center has contracted with a home health care agency, Safe at Home, to provide this service. The caregivers are screened and acquire at least 8 hours of annual training in areas such as childhood illnesses, child development, and CPR. The agency is bonded, and all caregivers have had state and FBI criminal background checks.
Many of the caregivers are students in nursing or education, and some have completed their degrees. Other caregivers are retirees with formal and informal experience with children.
