Lots of training and support will be given until new caregivers are comfortable, and since we are often home during shifts, it's not an isolated type of job. Most of our caregivers find it to be a comfortable and rewarding job and stay on with us until they leave collage for the next step in their careers.

Pay is $10-$12/hour; travel to and from our Suamico is paid at minimum wage.
