Hey, caregivers, we hear you. Based on all your feedback, our site is more user-friendly than ever! We know just how hard it is to find consistent, rewarding work as a private-duty caregiver. That’s one of the reasons we created Home Care Assist — to empower people like yourself to find quality private-duty opportunities. We put you in the driver’s seat of your career. Our new site changes and added benefits aim to further engage our caregiver community. Afterall, caregivers like you are the cornerstone of home care.

Just Click to Apply

Our new site improvements now allow you to view and apply for job openings at the click of a button. Reach out to careseekers directly! As always, creating a Home Care Assist profile is free. Now, once your profile is complete, you can view and apply for private-duty opportunities right from your dashboard. Simply view the job openings and click to apply. Once connected, you’ll be able to communicate securely about job specifics. Then determine whether a particular opportunity is right for you.… We know that mutual compatibility is a two-way street.

You can increase your exposure by passing a simple background screening. Only background-passed members are eligible to appear in search results. This means that you’ll be matched with people who are actively seeking care. And the opportunities come to you first! The benefits of passing our background screening don’t stop there. We’ve cultivated relationships with industry partners to offer you member discounts. Quickly offset the $19 background check fee with 20% off all scrubs and medical supplies from AllHearts.com. When additional partner relationships are finalized, the savings will be passed on to you!

Get Notified Quick

Don’t miss an opportunity! We’ve implemented text messaging alerts (hooray for technology!) so you’ll never miss a job connection or new message notification. Often people are in need of care at a moment’s notice. The quicker you receive and respond to messages, the better your chances of landing the job. As always, we’ll continue to send email notifications and we’ll do our best not to flood your inbox with unnecessary junkmail.

Stay on Schedule

We received a lot of feedback about our availability calendar. Now, it’s new and improved! It’s super easy to schedule and update your available shifts…. Each day is divided into four blocks of time. Just click on a block to show your willingness to work during that time frame. To indicate 24-hour availability, click the day(s) of the week that you’re available and all shifts within that period will be highlighted. To deselect a shift, simply click again. Watch the video below to see how it works (click to enlarge).

Remember, you can increase your chances of being matched by keeping your profile and your availability calendar up-to-date.

As always, we put our customers first. If you have any suggestions on how to improve the site functionality even more, we’d love to hear from you. And as we roll-out changes and new partnership discounts, we’ll be sure to share them with you. With Home Care Assist, you’re well on you way to finding rewarding, private-duty opportunities.
