Before the pandemic, the demand for home care workers was strong. Now the demand for home care is outstripping the supply of qualified workers. To remedy the problem, Home Instead has established a new position that rewards Caregivers and offers opportunity for growth. The Professional Care Assistant (PCA) position has features usually found in “bricks and mortar” healthcare settings: higher compensation, paid time off, the possibility of full medical insurance, guaranteed full-time hours, a career path within the organization, paid training and, most important, the opportunity to do meaningful work.
To qualify as a PCA, candidates must possess an STNA (State Tested Nurse Aide) or HHA (Home Health Aide) certificate. However, Home Instead is offering in-house, paid training for non-certified employees to become certified Home Health Aides and thereby, eligible to become PCAs.
The desire to receive care at home is growing and the demand for professional Caregivers who possess skills, knowledge, and a kind heart is ramping up along with it. Home Instead will be there to meet the challenges with a care team of committed professionals dedicated to enhancing the lives of seniors. Every employee in the organization, from top to bottom, knows they belong to a group that, working together, makes a real difference in the lives of our senior clients. Home Instead is actively changing the face of aging and there is no better place to do that than in the homes of our local senior clients.
