Who can be a home care worker? Part 3. The Part-Timer

Got bills? Inflation hitting you hard?

Need some extra cash in your pocket just to keep up?

Working in home care may be the answer to your shortfall at the end of the month. If your current job isn’t covering your bills, read on about some options for increasing income right now.

Working in home care means working in your neighborhood with community members. You save on commuting. That means more time for yourself and no transportation costs.

Working in home care means choosing your own schedule: a schedule that jives with your main job and your family. It means not having to fit into a shift that is arbitrarily chosen by others. You choose the hours you work.

Working in home care offers many options for weekend work hours. You can put in nighttime hours, too. You work as much as you want to.

And we want you! New York State has the worst home care workforce crisis in the country. Jobs in home care abound.

Working in home care for Caring Professionals, an esteemed home care agency, means getting paid the top rates in home care in the metro NYC area. That’s usually $20 per hour. (The rates are mostly regulated by the state and differ by location according to law.)

Working in home care for Caring Professionals means being paid daily through Daily Pay. That means that your pay gets loaded onto a cash card as soon as you’ve worked. No waiting for payroll schedules. That means your money is in your pocket sooner and your bills are paid faster. That translates into more peace of mind and a better quality of life for you.

There is more choice involved in working home care. There is traditional home care that is delivered by an agency (called a LHCSA, a licensed home care agency that is licensed by NYS). Traditional home care sends aides (HHA’s and PCA’s, which are almost the same) into the home. These aides have taken a training course and hold certificates awarded by the state. They are sent to Medicaid long term care patients which are either seniors or people with disabilities to help them with their needs as outlined by a care plan.

Don’t have an HHA or PCA certificate that is a prerequisite for working traditional home care? We need you and we show you that we do.

Caring Professionals will pay your tuition at a training school if you commit to working for the company. The schooling is just a few days and is usually offered at night or on weekends. For more information, call (718) 425-3086. You will have a coordinator assigned to you for support. A scheduler will find replacements for your absences and vacations.

Don’t want to bother to bother with the schooling? You can still work home care for the $20 hourly rate without a certificate. You can work in the CDPAP Program.

That’s the Consumer Directed Personal Assistant Program wherein the patient (the consumer or his designated representative) hires the personal assistant (that’s you). The consumer or his designated assistant will train you and you will follow a care plan. Enrollment is easy. It takes a day or two. Want more information about CDPAP? Call 718-307-6270.

We’ve reduced the paperwork significantly. You will sign in and out electronically through a phone app. There is a hotline for your questions and people to support you. We make it as efficient as possible so that you can start earning easily right away.
