Apply with Caregiver Connection

Welcome! Thank you for considering joining Caregiver Connection, Portland's #1 Caregiver Registry since 1998. We help match you to clients who are looking for independent skilled, experienced caregivers throughout the Portland, Oregon metro area, including Multnomah, Clackamas and  Washington counties and Vancouver, Washington. Our caregivers work one-on-one with seniors in their homes. Many of our elder clients have medical conditions or are on hospice, and thus we give preference to those with nursing assistant or equivalent backgrounds. 

Why apply with Caregiver Connection?

  • Earnings: Our caregivers earn higher-end compensation--as determined between client and caregiver--generally ranging from $18-$25+ per hour or $350-450+ per 24-hour shift, paid directly to you by the client

  • Time and effort: we help to locate potential clients for you

  • Autonomy: all aspects of your work, including compensation, are determined between you and your client

  • Flexible hours: 2-hour to 24-hour shifts available

What are we looking for in a new caregiver?

We would love to see your application only if you have:

  • completed nursing assistant training or have a verifiable caregiver background with an emphasis on bedside care

  • or have 3 years of private-duty professional "medical" caregiving to seniors in home or assisted living environments; this may not include informal care of family members, and must be more than companion level care.

....and can say "YES!" to all of the following statements:

  • I have recent work-related references for care giving within the last 5 years

  • I am available at least 3 shifts per week, including a Saturday or Sunday each month, at the time of applying

  • I am confident about passing a national criminal background check, driving record, references and drug test

  • I am willing to purchase liability insurance ($70 per year), which will be transferable to my other private jobs

  • I am willing to take ongoing education (3-6 hours annually) at my own expense

  • I am willing to maintain a strict non-smoking environment

  • I have my own car, cell phone and e-mail

  • I understand that Caregiver Connection does not provide worker's compensation or benefits

  • I plan on being active with the Caregiver Connection registry for at least a year, but understand that this does not restrict me from seeking other work

  • I understand that Caregiver Connection will make every effort to generate referrals for me, but cannot guarantee work
