The NCCDP administers the Certified Dementia Practitioner® (CDP®) program, a certification that indicates a health care professional has received comprehensive knowledge in the area of dementia care, has completed the Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia Care course and seminar, and met the NCCDP certification requirements.

As we continue to grow and provide more and more seniors in the Roanoke Valley with home care services, the need became apparent to find a new location that can accommodate our growing staff. Luckily we found the perfect location in the heart of downtown Roanoke just steps from the Farmer's Market, Center in the Square, The Taubman Museum of Art, Hotel Roanoke, and more.
We are not medical but we are extremely important to the quality of life of our clients. We are looking for "caregiver" personalities. A volunteer background is just as good as CNA experience to us. People with customer service backgrounds are also welcome to apply. Our caregivers are honest, mature, possess a strong work ethic, good judgment skills, patience, understand the frailties of aging, and are able to work unattended. Our job is unbelievably rewarding and personally satisfying. I am happy to train the right person. If you live in the Roanoke, VA area and you "love old people" you will love this job!
