Five Good Friends prides itself on being the best matchmaker in the business. We understand that the right Helper match can make all the difference. Relationships are as important as the support provided. When inviting people into your home, it’s important everyone feels comfortable.
What you want comes first
The first step to finding the right Helper is asking the person that needs support and their family what they want. We’ll give you our recommendations, but at the end of the day, it’s your home and up to you who you invite into your lives.
Qualifications & Experience
It’s important that the person that is providing support has the training, skills and confidence needed. We have a rigorous application process. Applicants need to provide detail on their qualifications and experience. Five Good Friends verifies the information provided, talks to referees and reviews all background checks.
Outcomes are better when the people have common ground to build a relationship. During the onboarding process, Five Good Friends records personality attributes that allow us to match the right person. This includes likes, interests and hobbies.
We try to match people that are in your neighbourhood. This allows the person providing support to spend less time travelling. They also have the advantage of knowing the local area and community.
Relationships are important, especially when it comes to care. We take care to sure it’s the same people week-on-week dedicated to you.
