The Schmieding Program provides access to graduate’s information in the form of a Caregiver Directory as a community service. Our sole intention is to help connect families that need caregivers with graduates who need employment. Participation on the Directory is voluntary and our program receives no monetary compensation for this service. We make no claims or assurances of satisfaction regarding the graduate’s work performance and we recommend that you interview prospective caregivers, require references, and make appropriate backgrounds checks prior to hiring anyone to help in your home. There are several good sources of information regarding what you should consider before hiring a caregiver in your home on our website https://uamscaregiving.org/find-a-caregiver/hiring-a-caregiver/ we recommend you read them, consider the pros and cons and weigh all available options before deciding what is best for your individual situation.
