Hiring qualified caregivers may be a stressful process and we are here to help alleviate some of that stress. At Bridging Independent Living Together, Inc our trained caregivers offer in-home services to children and adults with disabilities. Our caregivers can assist with activities of daily living (ADL’s), recreational outings, light housekeeping, and a variety of other supports geared toward increasing the overall quality of life of the individual served. We ensure that all our caregivers are qualified for the position and are properly trained before being placed with a client. We handle scheduling, finding last minute coverage for shifts, and discipline/ follow up of the caregivers so the guardian doesn’t have too!
We understand that at times, care requires errands being run, and routine jobs being completed. Our lifestyle assistance services are here to help when an individual’s direct care needs are fulfilled, but help in other areas is required.
