We have multiple open assignments for a qualified caregivers in an in-home/private duty environment. Caregiver/Companion/Attendant Care assignments through Dependable Staffing primarily will be a one to one assignment working directly with a brain or spinal cord injured patient; or occasionally working as the attendant in a rehabilitation home setting working with multiple patients in a residential group home setting.

This may involve assistance with daily living activities, cueing and re-directing behaviors, hoyer transfers, medication reminders, meal prep, accompanying patients on activities, and working on target goals.
Caregiver assignments are typically eight, ten and twelve hour shifts. Days, nights, weekdays, weekends, holidays, etc.
