Our High Standards

Independence Home Care is Family Owned by Teresa Sajkowski RN, and her husband Vincent. Teresa founded Independence Home Care to improve and exceed the current in-home care standards.

Our Caregivers

All of our Caregivers are NJ Certified Home Health Aides (CHHA) with a minimum of 2 years experience. Each Caregiver undergoes an intense rigorous screening and training process.

Because of our high standards we only attract the “Most Elite” caregivers.  All of our caregivers must possess the following credentials to even be considered as a candidate:

  • 2 years or more of home care experience
  • Verifiable professional references
  • Clean background check (performed annually)
  • Health Physical (performed annually)
  • TB/Mantoux testing (performed annually)
  • Vaccination record
  • Personality/psychological exam
  • Lengthy and thorough 3 person interview
  • License verification (performed annually)
  • DMV check and car insurance verification (performed annually)
  • Document verification

Once the Candidate has made it through our screening process and is hired, they will then begin our Company Training & Orientation to enhance their CHHA training and to make sure they thoroughly understand their role.  This also allows us to see them in action and assists us in our selection and matching process with our clients.

We then provide on-site orientation of the care plan and continued support for entire length of care. Our Registered Nurses are required to visit every 60 days as per NJ regulations, however we visit at least every 30 days to ensure the care plan is being followed and also to make any necessary changes.
