Pegasus is a fast growing, locally owned company that seeks to provide only the highest caliber care for our clients. We are looking for candidates that are not only qualified but also display the characteristics that Pegasus prides itself on; compassion, empathy, dedication, reliability and the desire to always put the client first
We have always known that happy employees make great employees so at Pegasus we have always prided ourselves on providing extremely competitive wages, top notch benefits, and opportunities for advancement and professional development. Full time Pegasus employees can enroll in our Group Health and Dental plans after 90 days. Every employee has an opportunity to get a merit based raise after 90 days as well and again at their annual review!
Pegasus also offers employees the opportunity to enroll in our CNA training program whereby they receive financial assistance in completing their CNA coursework and testing. Candidates that already have a CNA license will be given a generous bonus after completing their first 90 days.
At Pegasus we have two different divisions:
Our In-Home Care Division provides caring assistance to a number of clients of differing needs and abilities. In this capacity you would be working one-on-one with an assigned client on a regular schedule. At this time especially, we are looking to hire someone who would be able to drive, and would be available to work weekdays and some weekends. However, we are always looking for good candidates for all of our clients and have a whole range of shifts including:

The other need we are trying to fill is for On-Call Employees willing to take shifts for the Facility Staffing division of Pegasus.

This person will not provide hands-on care for the client (such as feeding and dressing) but will monitor the facility residents while providing companionship and encouragement and make themselves available to the facility staff for support and respite. They may be asked to perform light housekeeping tasks.
