1,000 Agencies Across Nation Using Caregiverlist.com to Find Quality

Caregivers

CHICAGO, Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Caregiverlist.com, the nation's online destination dedicated to connecting seniors with quality senior care choices, is helping home care agencies keep up with the demand for senior in-home care services as the caregiving recruitment source for the industry. Nearly 1,000 senior home care independently owned and franchise agencies across the nation including Senior Helpers, Home Instead, Home Helpers and Right-at-Home are using Caregiverlist.com to find individuals who are caring, trustworthy and self-motivated.

With 76 million baby boomers turning 65 in the next two years and the increased desire for in-home care, the recession proof home care industry is constantly hiring. "Caregiverlist.com has been an excellent resource for helping us identify and contact qualified and motivated caregivers," said Ray Willard, Marketing Director, Senior Helpers of San Diego. "The detailed information provided, allows us to review and screen caregivers before we make contact with applicants." "Caregiverlist.com has enabled us to keep up with the increased desire for in-home care services as well as changing client care needs while reducing our recruitment advertising expenses."

Senior home care agencies registered with Caregiverlist.com gain their own provider mini website and tools to effectively screen, interview and hire caregivers. Senior home care agencies are also automatically sent email alerts when a new job application is submitted.

Caregiverlist.com receives more than 1,200 caregiver applicants per week. Many caregivers are trained as Certified Nursing Aides, but no formal experience is required (other than a caring personality) as licensed senior home care agencies provide training for their staff.

To protect seniors, senior home care agencies do conduct background and reference checks. Caregiverlist.com assists job applicants by providing them with information on the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which regulates background checks nationally and is sometimes superceded by state laws. Caregiverlist.com provides state-by-state background check law information and also assists job applicants with the purchase of their own background check to accelerate their application.

"Caregiving is a great career for those re-entering the workforce or for those simply seeking job satisfaction and personal fulfillment beyond a paycheck," said Julie Northcutt, Caregiverlist.com founder and president.

While there are no national licensure requirements for non-medical senior home care agencies, Caregiverlist.com requires participating senior home care agencies to meet a checklist of standards which industry professionals view as necessary requirements for safety and consistency in care. This list includes background checks, various forms of insurance, training, and 24-hour on-call service, all of which are especially valuable when seniors are being cared for in their own home and no family members live close enough to monitor the care.
