Our Personal Care Coaches
Thrive USA’s Personal Care Coaches (PCC) are the essential ingredient in the quality, compassionate care we provide our clients. These dedicated caregivers are what sets us apart from other care providers.
Our thorough vetting and training process ensures that we hire only the most qualified, skilled caregivers who then receive extensive additional training before they can be certified as PCCs and provide direct care to clients.
The minimum qualifications for all our PCCs are:
- Multi-level interviews to accurately capture each applicant’s skills, background, and interests
- Clean criminal background check
- Clean medical screening
- Classroom and on-the-job training
- Successful completion of knowledge and skills certification, administered by a Master Coach
- Current CPR certification
- Commitment to the Personal Care Coach Pledge
Once our PCCs are certified and working directly with clients, they continue to receive ongoing training. This makes sure our caregivers are well-versed in the most up-to-date, science-based care methods.
Thrive USA’s PCCs come to us with various degrees, backgrounds, and certifications. We have registered nurses, CNAs, physical therapists, and life coaches among our certified PCCs. It is because of these varied backgrounds that we feel confident finding a suitable match for you or your loved one. We determine these matches following an extensive initial consultation in which we discuss your goals and challenges, giving us a deep understanding of what our PCCs can do for you.
Our commitment to you is: If we do not employ a Personal Care Coach with the qualifications you need, we will go out and find one for you.
Personal Care Coach® Pledge
I swear to fulfill, to the best of my ability and judgment, this pledge:
I will respect the lessons learned of those Personal Care Coaches in whose steps I walk, and gladly share the knowledge I gain with those who are to follow.
I will apply myself, for the benefit of all clients, young and old, regardless of ailment or financial situation, committing to never do harm.
I will not be ashamed to say,“I don’t know” nor will I be ashamed to call in other Coaches when the skills of another are needed for a client’s ability to Thrive in life.
I will respect the privacy of my patients. I will remember the holistic approach taught to me and will always keep in mind that I do not treat a medical chart, but a human being needing assistance.
I will remember that there is art to home care, as well as science; and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh medical procedures or medicine.
I will remember that I remain a Personal Care Coach, with special obligations to all my fellow human beings, those sound of mind and body as well as the home bound.
May I always act to preserve the finest traditions of Personal Care Coaches and may I long experience the joy of healing those who seek my help.
