How Does Caregiverlist Connect Senior Caregivers with Jobs?
Senior Care Companies sometimes receive multiple new clients in one day and in order to keep up with staffing for current clients, along with new clients, and for hospitals and nursing homes to maintain the minimum staffing required for licensing, caregivers are interviewed and hired weekly. Caregiverlist provides senior care companies with sophisticated interactive tools to quickly review and match caregivers with their openings. Caregivers may submit 1 job application to reach multiple companies and resubmit after 30 days if a client passes away or if the senior no longer needs care services.

Note: Only licensed senior care companies who hire caregivers as employees meet Caregiverlist’s quality standards to participate, providing applicants with professional jobs with employee benefits.
