Welcome to Central Valley Senior Services

Finding the right caregiver can be a difficult and daunting process. Most seniors and their families do not know how or where to even begin, what questions to ask, what qualities to look for, or what to do if they are having problems with their caregiver. Often times, those hiring a private caregiver will do so without requiring a criminal background check. The staff at Central Valley Senior Services (CVSS) has the experience and knowledge in screening, hiring, training, and supervising caregivers.
