Job description

Looking for Home Health Aides (HHA) and/or Personal Care Assistants (PCA) and Companions!

Pay and Benefits:

We believe that our Home Health Aides (HHA) and/or Personal Care Assistants (PCA) and Companions are the heart of our business. Without you, we couldn’t build meaningful relationships with our clients, put a smile on their face or be the highlight of their day. It is hard to put a price on helping others but we know how important you are and value the impact you would make day in and day out for our clients. In taking this position, you would receive:

  • Competitive pay 
    • Pay may vary by location, level of training and type of shift
  • Flexible schedules (Shifts can be arranged to fit your schedule)
  • 401 (k) retirement plan
  • Weekly pay
  • Mobile clock in/out
  • Work close to home (Serve seniors in your own community)
  • Ongoing PAID training and development
  • Right at Home Benefits 
    • Make a difference, develop meaningful relationships and meet new people
    • Give back to those who need you most (our clients need you now more than ever before!)
    • Paid travel time in between clients and paid mileage
    • Extremely positive work environment
    • Access to leadership
    • Recognition, celebrations and great team interactions!

In this role, we stand prepared to equip you with the right personal protective equipment (PPE) and are ready to assist as you care for our vulnerable population of seniors and adults with disabilities.

 What You’ll Do and Who You Are:

The good news is that your training will teach you everything you need to know to succeed on the job. But there are a few character traits you should have from the get-go. We have a great work culture at Right at Home and look for people with a similar mindset:

You’re the honest, likable, energetic and approachable type, and are able to get along and verbally communicate easily with people at all levels. You listen well, have great decision making skills and are passionate about your customer focus. You’re never short of a smile and take real pride in your work by being resourceful, accountable, and adaptable and you cope well under pressure, take initiative and thrive on a challenge. Integrity is one of your core values as you do not ethically cut corners. You make a great first impression as you are professional and kind in your demeanor and approach.

You don’t mind getting a little dirty … this could include (but is not limited to) assisting the patient with activities of daily living such as providing assistance with personal hygiene (toileting, bathing, care of mouth, skin and hair), ambulation, eating, dressing, shaving, light housekeeping, and other household chores. You don’t have to be a gourmet chef but you can prepare a good meal and work your way around a kitchen.

Must Haves:

  • High school degree and/or a G.E.D. certificate
  • Six months experience as a Home Health Aide (HHA),  Personal Care Assistant (PCA) and/or Companion in health care (in homes or facilities) optional successful completion of a State approved Nurse Aide or Home Health Aide (HHA) and/or Personal Care Assistant (PCA) course
  • The Home Health Aide shall have successfully completed a Competency Evaluation that meets the State licensing law for home health agencies
  • Must have a sympathetic attitude toward the care of the sick, and ability to deal effectively with the demands of the job
  • Meets the requirements for employees providing direct patient care
  • Read, write, speak and understand English as needed for the job
  • Have a valid driver’s license and have access to adequate transportation
