Caregiver List and Training

Find a caregiver…or find a job being a relief caregiver through Haywood County’s Caregiver List.

The list is free to individuals seeking a caregiver and can be picked up at the Senior Resource Center.

Individuals wanting to be placed on the list for employment must pay a $35.00 fee for a background check. Experience may or may not be necessary.

Both parties are asked to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (see links below). Those can be printed out, signed and brought in when either receiving the list or prior to being placed on the list.

The list is maintained by the Senior Resource Center.  It is up to family members the contact individuals on the list, arrange interviews, negotiate salary and work arrangements and hire someone. Periodically, training is provided to both family members and prospective employees.

Training assists family members in understanding how to interview, how to find a “good fit” with their family, how to evaluate an employee, etc. Both family members and prospective employees learn how to transfer a patient, universal safety precautions and hints for successful caregiving.
