What We Do

Ghent CareGivers, Inc. provides trustworthy and experienced nannies and eldercare companions for families throughout Hampton Roads including Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth and Suffolk. GCG operates on the principles of personal service and dedication to the highest standards in the caregiving profession. Our services for families include long-term, short-term and temporary which can be full-time, part-time, live-in, live-out, hotel, event and on-call.

We understand the challenges of finding the perfect person who can care for your senior family member or for your child gently and lovingly at all times.  We understand the necessity of finding reliable and respectful caregivers, whether for an ailing father or mother or for a newborn infant.   We would cherish the opportunity to pair you with such a professional.

Additionally from time to time, other family care services are needed within the home.  We also extend the same quality benchmarks to place housekeepers, academic tutors, family assistants, sitters, and corporate childcare.  Whether you are looking for an honest and devoted person to help with a parent who has health challenges or for an inspiring nanny to foster edification in young children, we at GCG want the chance to demonstrate the caliber, character, and class of our providers.  We would cherish the privilege of providing assistance in your home.

In the words of one client, “I wanted a caretaker for my elderly mom who would respect my mother’s level of independence, provide stimulating conversation, and understand how to communicate in a friendly, non-patronizing way.  I was looking for an intelligent companion, not a babysitter or nurse. The caregiver referred to me by Ghent CareGivers was a perfect fit.”

We feel it’s important to emphasize that at GCG, we collaborate with professionals who represent specific areas of expertise and experience, advocates to ensure you get the best in the caregiving profession.  In the words of one nanny, “What I appreciate most about working with Ghent CareGivers is knowing I have the camaraderie of other nannies and ready counsel of childcare experts long after I have been hired. “

By listening carefully to the viewpoints and needs of our clients seeking services for the home, we hear words like trustworthy and organized.  Other preferred traits are disciplined, attentive, safety conscious, CPR-certified, or someone schooled in early childhood education.  In other cases, the requests are more practical as in a non-smoker or someone who’s okay with cats or dogs.

The personal attributes sought by clients run the gamut. Each family is individual in the qualities they seek in a nanny or someone to care for an elderly parent.  We pride ourselves on perfect matches. The most sought-after attributes we hear are words like firm, kind, nice, honest, patient, a good communicator, enthusiastic, tidy, creative, honest, flexible, reliable, and someone who truly loves children or senior citizens.  Careful screening is the hallmark of what we do at GCG.  Of course our providers are screened through background checks, and we carefully consider great references, but we take the screening process further, to a level of the most principled measure to ensure an optimal partnership between family and provider.
