FAQ for Friends

Do I pay for my own background check?

Yes, Friends pay $19.95 to SentryLink for their own background checks.  The background check creates the safest environment for Elders and peace of mind for the Families.

Is there any training or certification required to be a Friend?

Amia requires that Friends complete the Orientation.  The Orientation covers Amia’s methodology for visits and boundaries for the visits.  Being a Friend does not require state certification.
