If you are looking for a Caregiver, the process to get started is pretty simple.
Sign-Up is easy, just select the Sign Up tab from this site and fill out the enrollment form. When you click the "Submit" button your information will be sent to our Care Managers at HomeChoice and they will complete your enrolment. Once your information is successfully in our system we will begin working with you and your SSA to make sure you have everything you need to use the system successfully.
You can do this step first if you prefer so that your SSA can speak to us and make sure HomeChoice is a good fit for you and your needs before you enroll. For HomeChoice to be able to hire your Caregiver and allow them to work with you, your SSA will need to add HomeChoice as a Provider on your PAWS. This is a very common request and should not take any longer than 2 weeks to complete.
A Caregiver can be ANYONE you choose… The only requirement is that they must be able to pass a background check, and not have any of the State Disqualifying Offenses listed here. HomeChoice will take anyone you like through the training to become your Caregiver, all they have to do is start the application here. Some of the best places to find great Caregivers are from people you already know, or places you frequently visit. People like extended family members, neighbors, friends, advocates, etc. all make excellent Caregivers. Some great places to find Caregivers are Churches, Schools, Clubs, etc. or anywhere people know you the best. With a very competitive pay of $14 per hour, recruiting a great caregiver should come easy.
After the Caregiver has submitted all requirements and is hired, and the PAWS has been enrolled by the county, you are ready to begin setting your Caregiver up with hours you need help. The authorized hours are input into the system, and your Caregiver can create a schedule when requested to work. You will have access to a family portal, where you can review all care notes in the past as well as see how many hours are left for your authorization.
