SANTA ANA, Calif., August 23, 2019 ( –  Care To Stay Home® has been ranked the #1 Best Workplaces in Aging Services for At-Home Care companies by Great Place to Work®  and FORTUNE. The Great Place to Work® Institute surveyed more than 230,000 Senior Care employees from across the nation to create the second annual Best Workplaces in Aging Services List. The in-depth survey evaluated more than 60 elements of team members’ experience on the job and included areas such as employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.

“We are so happy to be listed as the #1 Best Workplaces in Aging Services out of all the At-Home Care providers nationwide,” said Kraig Nakano, President, and CEO of Care To Stay Home®. Mr. Nakano noted, “Our team has worked hard to make adjustments in our operation to improve employee engagement and recognition.

“We have a saying at Care To Stay Home®, Hire for Character and Train for Skill,” said Mr. Parker Wells, Chief Operating Officer who went on to say “Recruiting has been a top priority for our company, we want to hire and retain the best talent in the business.”  The survey results also showed that 98% of all new hires felt that they felt welcomed and part of the team upon joining Care To Stay Home®.

This meant that survey results truly represent all employees by using the Trust Index© survey results are accurate to a 95% confidence level with a 5% margin of error or better. Employees responded to over 60 survey questions describing the extent to which their organization creates a Great Place to Work®  For All™. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees say about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. Great Place to Work® analyzes these experiences relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical relative to their peers in the industry.
