We will train you!

Work where you feel safe.

During the National Public Health Emergency caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic, do you want to work in one of the safest environments possible? A place where the people you serve average 85% fully vaccinated? A place where your co-workers will also be fully vaccinated? Recently, the Healthcare division of Volunteers of America National Services decided to require vaccination for all employees, volunteers and contractors. While this decision was difficult, we understand that we care for individuals who are most susceptible to advanced COVID illness and death. We are committed to providing the safest environment possible for those we serve. This commitment extends to another very important group of individuals, our employees.

Join us today in providing care and services to older adults in an organization that cares deeply about the health and well-being of others; those we care for, our employees, our community and our Nation.

We are currently seeking a compassionate, dedicated and fun-loving individual to join our team as a Caregiver. As a Caregiver at Elder Homestead, you would be responsible for providing excellent resident care, supporting our seniors in maintaining and improve their day-to-day abilities, while helping foster independence and confidence throughout their golden years.
