Tell us about your open positions.
We are looking for CNA’s, HHA’s and companions. We need people with all skill levels to go in-home. Our CNA’s and HHA’s help with ADL’s, showers, and escorting to doctor appointments. Our companions keep the client’s company by going for walks, playing games, going to eat or going to movies, among many other things.
What do you look for in a potential caregiver hire?
We look for candidates who genuinely loves taking care of people. They need to be knowledgeable, friendly, compassionate, and kindhearted.
What are the benefits of working a caregiver or CNA job with your organization?
We offer free CEU’s, including in-house and online lectures. We help our aides renew their CPR credentials if needed. We offer ways for our aides to increase their pay and we have referral bonuses.
Anything else you’d like caregivers to know about what it’s like to work for you?
Each caregiver meets with the owner of the company and is not treated like just a number. At Interim Healthcare we genuinely care about our caregivers and do our best to keep them happy.
