Male and Female Attendants

We strive to have both a male and female caregiver available at all times and we will always try to accommodate requests for an attendant of a specific gender. However, due to contractual requirements and variable staffing we cannot guarantee we will be able to meet these requests.

Emergency Care Only

Easy Does It's Attendants are intended to be called in Emergency Situations Only. Our team is not meant to replace a Full Time Attendant, which is why we also help you hire full time attendants.
