Are you passionate and interested in working with the senior population?  Would you like to explore a career as a CAREGiver with Home Instead?   We are accepting people with all levels of experience.  Our offices are equipped with CAREGiver Training Centers where we can teach you any activities of daily living (ADL's) that you may not know or just need some brushing up on.  Some of these ADL's include bathing, dressing, grooming and incontinence care. 

We are an International non-medical Home Care Company that has been serving seniors for over 20 years throughout Baton Rouge, Central, Denham Springs, Zachary, Prairieville, Gonzales and Donaldsonville.  Hourly Wages may vary, based on the hours a caregiver works and when.  Example would be higher pay on weekends.  Also higher pay for clients with specialized care needs such as Alzheimer's or Dementia.

Schedule Description:

We currently have a great need for CAREGivers looking for both Part-Time and Full-Time work schedules.  Typical schedules are built around 4 hour blocks so shift options could be 4-hour, 8-hour or 12-hour shifts.  Morning shifts typically begin between 7a-9a and our evening shifts will typically begin between 1p-4p or 7p-7a for night 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.  

We also have opportunities to work as a Live-In caregiver where you can earn over $31,000 annually.  To briefly explain the program, you would be scheduled for a 7 day period, Thursday-Thursday.  After that 7 day period, you will be off for the following 7 days and your schedule would revolve on that cycle.  During your scheduled 7 day shift, you would be required to reside in the home of our client, but you would have opportunity to rest at night in appropriate sleep settings.
