For more than 10 years, the services provided by the professional caregivers at Bridge Personal Care Services (Bridge PCS) have assisted countless individuals in remaining comfortable in their own homes while receiving support to be independent.

Bridge PCS understands that clients and families are concerned about the quality and trustworthiness of the caregivers that come into their homes, and Bridge is concerned about the same things as well. All Bridge PCS nursing assistants have completed aide training and have received certification by proving knowledge obtained during the training. Many nursing assistants have also successfully completed testing administered by the state of Ohio and are listed in the current State of Ohio Nurse Aide Registry.

All Bridge PCS staff are required to pass a background investigation before being hired and complete an extensive orientation program prior to providing services in the home. Caregivers are also required to complete continuing education throughout the year. We know that maintaining a dependable and well-educated caregiving staff is critical to providing exceptional care!
