Introductory agency of live in carers
Veritas Care is a live in care agency and staff supplier to private and business customers. We specialise in providing high-quality affordable live-in care. We recruit only experienced and qualified carers to match your care needs.
Years of experience as senior home care agency
Over the past years, we have served more than 20,000 Clients throughout Europe. We operate in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Ukraine, Ireland and the United Kingdom. Our approach to care is simple, yet effective: to provide high quality affordable live in care. We want to be the best at home care agency. Customer’s satisfaction is our priority.
Our mission is to make the live-in care affordable to the ones that need it the most. Therefore, our services are designed to meet the highest standards. At the same time, our prices are generally 40% lower than the average live-in care rates in the United Kingdom. We are very aware that the current care system is challenging. And that not everybody is eligible for the government financing of care and has to choose self-funding. Among the options available, we offer by far the most cost-effective one, but we are still a quality care at home agency.
How do we recruit our carers?
Friendly and empathetic attitude towards the client is crucial in any business. But when providing services in care sector, it is even more important.
A carer needs to be able to understand what the client is going through and what difficulties they may have.
Some situations are emotionally challenging, not only for the carer, but as well for the person in care. Seniors, once fit and able to care about themselves, are now dependent on the carers. Therefore, the carer has to always treat the client with dignity.
Careful candidates selection and verification
At Veritas Group we have plenty of experience in hiring top-quality live-in carers. Currently, around 1,800 of our carers work across Europe.
Our senior home care services agency has an extensive recruitment process. We thoroughly review candidate’s past work experience. We check their education level and skills. And off course, we also check their proficiency in English.
The candidates are subject to extensive screenings and background checks. In most cases, we will present several candidates to our clients and their families. We want to give them a choice to decide who will take care of their loved ones.
Our carers are selected through our advanced recruitment process. They are subject to screening and background checks. Additionally, Veritas Care makes sure that all candidates obtain a clear DBS certificate.
Thanks to these procedures we are sure that we hire only the right candidates. Our aim is to prevent unsuitable people from working with vulnerable clients.
Only experienced carers
As an absolute must, we require previous experience in the care industry. It is essential. Without it, we cannot hire a carer.
From time to time we have to sadly reject great candidates with no experience in the care sector.
There is one more stage of the recruitment process before the experienced candidates are ready to work for us as carers. We are organising obligatory on-site training for all the recruited carers.
Our training sessions are called “Care Academy”. This intensive training program includes:
- People Movers, Moving and Handling — handling clients with dignity and care
- First Aid Basic Course– basic first-aid principles
- Medication Awareness — rules of safe medications administration
- Safe at Home — standards of house safety in the United Kingdom
The course is conducted by experienced trainers and has accreditation of the Trainer House Ltd. The First Aid part is in line with the guidelines of the European Resuscitation Council.
