D’Aquila notes that Assisted Living Services is unique within the homecare industry in that all of its homemaker and companion providers are employees, who undergo a thorough, state and national criminal background check, a Department of Homeland Security check and professional and employment references as part of the hiring process.  As such, they are eligible for healthcare benefits, 401k plan options, and longevity bonuses.
