Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I use Nurse Next Door instead of hiring a private caregiver?
What kind of background and screening checks can you do on your own for a caregiver?
All Nurse Next Door Caregivers are carefully screened with criminal background checks and vulnerable sector checks. We confirm our Caregivers’ educational credentials and verify upon hire and annually, that every nurse is registered and in good standing with their respective College of Nurses. If you hire a caregiver privately, you will need to perform background checks and screening yourself.
If my caregiver is unavailable, who will fill in?
At Nurse Next Door, we ensure there is a replacement when one of our Caregivers becomes unavailable. We believe in continuity of care and will contact you to inform you of a Caregiver change.
