Our Caregivers | Care Because You Matter

We employ more than 1500 employees across western Washington.

KWA not only has amazing caregivers who provide amazing care, but they are all trained in accordance with state licensing regulation, pass criminal background checks, reference screening and are fully insured and bonded. Some of our caregivers are nurse-delegated, which means they received specialized training from a nurse to perform skilled tasks, such as changing a wound dressing. Nurse delegation services allow clients to remain in their home at a lower cost.

We know not every match is made in heaven. There are personal and cultural differences, individual needs, preferences and interests. We take great care in how we match our clients to our caregivers and our matchmaking track record is excellent. We are culturally sensitive and can even provide a caregiver that speaks your language and cooks ethnic meals. At KWA, clients feel confident that they are a good and compatible match with the best caregiver possible. KWA in-home care supervisors carefully select the caregiver with the experience and personality that best duties the needs of each client.
