Posted on: May 3, 2021

Job Description:

Earn $182 to $217 per day!

We are seeking compassionate, responsible LIVE-IN (24-hour) CAREGivers for our elderly clients. Our live-in CAREGivers provide in-home, 24-hour care for 3-4 days a week. Providing live-in services allows you to work in one of health care's safest environments: One-on-one in the private home of a senior. 

Our team of CAREGivers work in the home of our senior clients and provide support in the areas of:
basic household duties (laundry, light housekeeping), meal preparation/cooking, errands, medication reminders, support with grooming, dressing, personal care, bathing, toileting, as well as incontinent care (as needed), companionship, and activities within the client's capabilities.

Most importantly, we're looking for CAREGivers that want to make a difference in the lives of seniors and build meaningful relationships with them. Your personal experiences can support your role as a CAREGiver - have you helped a family member, friend or neighbor? Have you worked or been in a role where customer service is the priority? Have you volunteered with service organizations?
