Caregiver Types

Caregiver TypesWe offer a diverse range of Caregivers. The following provides a brief explanation of the different kinds of Caregivers we have that are available to you and what their duties entail. A full job description for each Caregiver type is provided in the Client Handbook.

It is important to understand that each Caregiver type is different and only in limited ways or circumstances do the job functions overlap. For example, a CNA is a trained certified nursing aide who will perform light housekeeping duties, but not full housekeeping, except under special arrangement. Housekeepers will do routine home maintenance and basic cleaning, but not yard work, companionship, cooking or driving.

*Caregiving services may vary from location to location. For a list of services, please contact your local AdvantagePlusCaregivers.com® office today by clicking on a local office near you.

Companion / Attendant: Provides companionship and assistance with activities of daily living; they have CPR and basic First Aid training.

Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Certified Home Health Aide (HHA): Although both CNAs and HHAs have training above and beyond that of a companion, our agencies only provide non-medical assistance; therefore, our CNAs and HHAs may only provide the same services as a Companion / Attendant. 


We're all about the Care!
