The Mum Test at CareChooser

We often get asked how we find our carers. We're asked how we check and approve them and what we check and approve.

We base our search for carers on many criteria, good strong Health and Social Care qualifications, experience and additional skills to name a few but we also have extra criteria that carers must comply with to join us. Firstly they must be able to prove through face-to-face competency based questions that they are able to meet our values and that they have it within them to provide that extra personal touch of quality that sets us apart. Then there's the final, crucial criteria - 'The Mum Test'. We ask ourselves...

Would they do for our Mum/Dad?

Once carers have passed these criteria during application, phone and then face-to-face interviews we then approve Enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) checks, identity checks, right to work checks and checks of qualifications. We work with our provider of choice UCheck to verify and approve identity and DBS checks.

If you're looking for hourly or live in care, all our carers have passed 'The Mum Test'.
