For around the same cost, clients can select a 1-year premium membership package with KCC and have access to multiple carers 24/7/365 including holidays and in the event of emergencies that require immediate services provided by on-call staff. KCC receives hundreds of applications per year, and only the most qualified and experienced candidates move forward through the interview process. The best of the best are then selected, and all Kindred Carers receive thorough background screenings through the Federal Criminal database, DCFS, and the DMV. They agree to a pre-employment drug and alcohol test and to random testing throughout their term of employment. Clients may also request "reasonable suspicion" testing at any time at no additional cost. Lastly, KCC guarantees that all carers who enter your home are covered by our general liability insurance, ensuring that you are financially protected against theft or damage to property. That's a lot of piece-of-mind for $200-500/year, and you can save even more by choosing a 5-year package! Consider the following costs for KCC to provide access to just three caregivers:
