Accessing the Service - Caregiver Qualifications
The U-M Work/Life Resouce Center has contracted with a home healthcare agency, Kennedy Care/ Safe at Home, to provide this service. The caregivers are screened and trained in areas such as childhood illnesses, child development, and CPR. The agency is bonded, and all caregivers have had state and FBI criminal backgound 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.
