About Our Caregivers
Private Duty Aides Providing Compassionate In-Home Health Care Across Fairfield County Connecticut
Home Care Connectors is dedicated to providing the best in-home healthcare services, and our superb level of care begins with our caregivers. When you choose Home Care Connectors, you can rest assured knowing that each and every one of our Certified Nursing Aides (CNA) and/or Certified Home Health Aides (CHHA) have gone through an extensive screening process prior to hiring. Our skilled team Private Duty Aides (PDAs) works hard to provide the highest level of care and companionship for your loved ones.
Each of our caregivers must meet the following criteria in order to be considered for employment:
- Minimum of 5 years of professional caregiver experience is required
- Minimum of 3 professional references from prior nursing home facilities, hospitals, home healthcare agencies, or private clients
- Minimum of 2 personal references (i.e. colleagues, neighbors)

- Must submit documentation of full physical and health examination
- Must be in compliance with Home Care Connectors' drug and alcohol policy
- Must be in compliance with HIPPA requirements to ensure a full and complete understanding of the privacy laws
Why Home Care Connectors?
In addition to our extensive screening process, all employees receive W-2s and are fully insured and bonded. Home Care Connectors requires our private duty home health aides provide a signed I-9 along with a photocopy of their professional credentials including verified copies of their driver’s license, social security card and/or appropriate working visa, and CPR card. Finally, we ensure that our employees understand and sign Home Care Connectors' confidentiality agreement and HIPPA privacy statement. Our CNA and home health aides are required to provide client reports to help both the families and doctors understand our clients’ daily status. During a caregiver’s initial client visit, a supervisor will be by their side to guarantee that our caregivers fully appreciate our clients’ needs and are familiar with their routines. By having this understanding, our private duty aides and caregivers can best support our clients’ independence and ensure they are comfortable in their own homes.
Thorough Caregiver Training For Your Peace of Mind
Upon receiving an offer of employment, all Home Care Connectors employees must attend a mandatory orientation. During our orientation program, we thoroughly review our mission and philosophy, along with HCC’s overall company policies, procedures, confidentiality agreements, and employee handbook. All of our employees must meet the mandated state and federal training requirements; we pride ourselves on offering multiple avenues for staff development to ensure we are meeting the state and federal regulations for the home health care industry. As a result, you can rest assured knowing that our staff and employees are fully compliant with the federal, state, and county laws in Connecticut. Our caregivers have an extensive amount of experience working with patients challenged by Parkinson’s, Dementia, ALS, Cancer, and more. Home Care Connectors is dedicated to developing our in-home caregivers far beyond the initial hiring and training process to ensure that our staff delivers best in class home healthcare services.
