Become a Caregiver: Paid Training

  • Have you recently been laid off or lost hours in your current job or career due to Covid-19?
  • Have you ever thought about becoming an “essential healthcare worker” by helping seniors and other disabled adults in their own homes?
  • Do you like the idea of having flexible schedules, working part-time OR full-time, and having ongoing job security with benefits?
  • Would you like to work in one of the fastest growing and most rewarding industries in the country?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions we would like you to consider a career in CAREGIVING and we’ll train you!


We offer a Two-Phase Caregiver Training Course that can be completed in just two weeks:

PHASE 1 — Online Caregiver Training Course (offered by state approved third party company):  This course consists of 11 training modules and can be completed in as little as 8 hours for a total cost of $34.00. Once the online training course is completed you will receive a Certificate of Completion which you then simply email to us and we will schedule you for our company orientation. When all steps are completed in PHASE 1, and once you’ve worked a minimum of 12 hours for Right at Home, not including field training hours, you will be reimbursed $34.00 on the first payday following completion of all requirements.

PHASE 2 — After you’ve completed our company orientation, we will schedule you to train with one or more of our actual clients alongside some of our experienced fully-trained caregivers. This phase can last either a few shifts, or if you feel that you need more training, can be multiple shifts over a one to two-week time period. Once you feel confident in your skills and abilities, we will start assigning clients for you to care for in their homes. Any time you feel that you need more training or assistance you just need to let us know; we want you to feel 100% confident and comfortable that you’ve been properly trained to care for others.

Depending on average weekly hours worked and job performance during first 60 days, pay will range from $14.00 to $15.00 per hour.
