Caregiverlist recruiting for healthcare jobs in Chicago

Posted on May 21, 2011

Caregiverlist, a company that provides caregivers for seniors, announced this week it is recruiting for healthcare jobs in Chicago.

The company is looking for caregivers specifically to attend to seniors’ needs.

While Chicago nursing jobs are more difficult to find, nurses’ aids and caregivers are in high demand.

Chicago seniors are most likely to stay in the Chicago area, studies show, providing ongoing employment opportunities for senior caregivers. Caregiverlist’s Career Center provides interactive tools for professional Chicago caregivers to find caregiver training programs, nursing aide schools, caregiver job descriptions and an application to apply for local senior care jobs.

In the Chicago area, more than 100 senior home care agencies have opened their doors in the last five years and turned to Caregiverlist to hire prequalified senior caregiver job applicants. The number of retirees in the Chicago area will grow to 1.5 million by the year 2020.

A study by the Metro Chicago Information Center and the Institute for Metropolitan Affairs found that seniors will likely move from the homes where they raised their families but still prefer to stay in the Chicago area in smaller homes or condos.

Senior home care agencies and hospice services provide certified nursing aides and companion caregivers for seniors choosing to stay in their own home while living with age-related diseases. As many times service starts quickly, with no prior notice, these companies hire 5 – 10 professional caregivers per week to keep up with staffing from hospital and nursing home discharges as seniors are sent home when Medicare benefits end.

Caregiverlist’s Career Center for professional caregivers provides trustworthy and dependable individuals interested in working in senior care with:

Caregiver Job Descriptions
Certified Nursing Aide School Directory

Caregivers may work part-time or full-time or as 24-hour live-in caregivers. Caregivers can submit a job application on Caregiverlist to be connected with openings meeting their skills and availability. Caregivers may take online training courses and receive on-the-job training from senior care companies.
