The Mum Test

What is the Mum Test and why does it matter?

When recruiting, we ask ourselves: ‘Would I like this person looking after my mum?’

These are the questions we consider:

  1. Would your care be good enough for your own mum?
  2. Would you pledge to practice our core values: excellence in care, integrity, teamwork, and fun?
  3. Do you believe all care decisions must take into account the wishes of clients and their families?
  4.  Are you driven by personal experience to provide the top-quality care that you would want for your own family?
  5. Do you think that providing care should include fun – for clients, carers, and franchisees?

If you can put your hand on your heart and say “Yes” to these five questions we want to hear from you now.
