There are many settings and programs where paid caregivers are employed to provide services to long term care clients. Learn how to become a paid caregiver.
A caregiver can fill an important role to help those in need of in-home assistance to remain independent and in their own homes as long as possible. The types of care provided depend on the tasks identified in the care plan. A care plan results from an assessment completed by a social worker or case manager working directly with the person who needs care.
A caregiver can work in many settings, including a private residence, adult family home, assisted living facility, or nursing home. Caregivers can be paid by a private home care agency, residential facility, or the Consumer Direct Care Network to provide services to those who qualify. Flexible schedules and health insurance are just some of the many benefits of becoming a paid caregiver.
