The Relief CAREGiver performs a variety of duties that ensure the highest quality service to clients. They are placed on client assignments that include Short Notice Call Outs, Regular Shifts and New Starts. Candidates must commit to work a minimum of 40+ hours per week and a willingness to work 1 weekend per month in rotation with other Relief CAREGivers.
Typical schedules are built around 4 hour blocks so shift options could be 4-hour, 8-hour or 12-hour shifts. Our primary goal is to establish a recurring schedule for our caregivers so if that's important to you, please contact us immediately. However, we also have the ability to work with those needing more flexibility in their schedules. Bottom line... Don't wait! Contact Kayla or Sharon today!
