After hearing about Manos Home Care through newspaper ads and friends, potential applicants must call in for an appointment to attend an orientation. If the applicant attends the orientation on time, they can make an appointment for an interview.
Applicants must arrive on time, fill out an application, and be interviewed.
Invited to Training
Those applicants having satisfactory interviews may be invited to a training, based on their availability and skills.
Applicants are given a two-day training covering
- The needs of the elderly and sick
- Body mechanics
- Company policy
- Emergency procedures
- House cleaning
Applicants are evaluated for
- Competence: can they do the work?
- Reliability: can they be trusted?
- Maturity: are they patient and able to listen?
Applicants who pass the course must then be fingerprinted. Fingerprints are sent to the Department of Justice and returned with a list of any federal crimes for which they were arrested and/or convicted.
