Caregivers/Companion Care

Home helpers (parkermoon Inc.)

$8 to $10 an hour
January 11, 2017

We need experienced caregivers for day, night, and weekend shifts in the Chattanooga area to care for people, mostly the elderly, who can't live alone without assistance. Duties include housework, personal care (i.e., bathing, dressing, assistance with toileting), companionship, driving on errands, etc. Some of our clients require assistance with transferring as well. We are willing to train on specifics of care for each client but prefer caregivers with some experience with this sort of work. We are looking for people with a caring heart who see this not as a job but as a calling.

In order to work as one of our caregivers, you must have a valid driver's license and reliable transportation. If you have children at home, you must have more than one layer of babysitters available. You must be able to pass a background check and drug screen. These restrictions are required by our license and our scheduler. In addition, as our caregiver you must not have any tattoos that you are not willing and able to cover by clothing such as scrubs. You must be willing to remove studs or hoops from visible body piercings other than the ear lobes. These restrictions are necessary because our clients are generally elderly and conservative, and we need them to feel comfortable with the caregivers we send to care for them.

We pay between $8 and $10 per hour and pay flat fees for short shifts. In general, pay rates vary according to the level of care required by the client or the difficulty of the account in general. We can generally provide our caregivers with the schedules they want with clients they like. If we can't do that to start, we ALWAYS work toward it because our caregivers are the life blood of our company and they are every bit as important to us as our clients.

If you are still interested after reading all this, please respond with a resume. If possible, we will then send you a link to some on-line testing and begin the interview process.

We are a wonderful Team of Caregivers Making life easier!

Best of luck in your job search!
