Who Can be a RIte @ Home Caregiver?
- Caregivers must be able to devote appropriate time necessary to provide needed personal care to the participant to ensure the participant's safety and well-being at all times.
- The caregiver can be a family member (with the exception of the individual's legal guardian or spouse) or non-family member who has time in their lives and room in their home and is willing to provide assistance and supervision.
- Caregivers must be thoroughly screened and complete an application process.
