Caregivers can follow two career paths:
Track 1: Caregivers
Do you have informal experience caring for a family member or friends? Maybe you’re the one in the family that everyone turns to when someone needs help. A career in caregiving may be right for you! For our caregiver position, we are looking for people with a true passion for helping seniors and great interpersonal skills. Patience and reliable transportation are also musts. We’d like you to know your way around the kitchen (a big part of that TLC), and be able to show us a track record of responsibility and good communication skills. If you’re the right fit for our team, we will train you and match you with an appropriate entry-level case.
