A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A CAREGIVER 

The type of support you provide depends on the client you are matched with but could include any or all of the following: assistance with shopping, meal planning, cooking, cleaning, medication administration assistance, community event attendance, assistance with going to school or work, transportation, appointments, and personal hygiene.

SCHEDULE/SHIFT TYPES:

Your schedule and the shifts available will depend on the client you are matched with. This is not your typical nine-to-five job. Schedules are built based on the client’s needs. Some clients need support 24/7 and other clients need 5 hrs of support a day. Our staff are paid for every hour they work including hours where they are SLEEPING. Yep, it’s true. Contact us today to see what shifts we have available.

POSITIONS:

The Life Guide 1 position is ideal for someone who is only looking for part-time hours.  We define part-time as 29 hours or less.  As a Life Guide 1, you would provide one on one care to one of our clients.  The clients we serve are adults with disabilities.  The type of care you provide will depend on the client you are matched with but will likely include assistance with cooking, cleaning, medication administration, transportation feeding, personal care, transfers, and community activities. 

The Life Guide 2 position is ideal for someone who is looking to work full time and is interested in a career at Compass.  In addition to the basic job duties of a Life Guide as described in the Life Guide 1 position, a Life Guide 2 will have more of a leadership presence in the household they work.  They may provide training for new staff, assistance with money management, and/or are more involved with helping the client reach their goals.

The Life Guide 3 position is ideal for someone who wants full-time hours and has experience as a caregiver.  They know that caregiving is a lifestyle choice, and it is an environment that they thrive in.  In addition to the basic job duties of a Life Guide as described in the Life Guide 1 position, a Life Guide 3 is also the expert in the home they work in and they work closely with management on all client needs, concerns, and training. 

WHO WE ARE:

Compass helps adults with developmental disabilities live interdependently in their own homes through our Supported Living Services. As a caregiver with Compass, you’ll work with 1-3 clients (one at a time) in their homes.  On each shift, you’ll have tasks that will need to be completed such as housekeeping, meal preparation, running errands, and other personal care-related activities.

We’re looking forward to working with you. Check out our caregiver openings today.

You will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
