Lead Caregiver

Caregiving is a wonderful and rewarding career, but what if you are called to something beyond caregiving. Agape In Home Care values promoting existing employees and we look to our current staff to fill new roles requiring greater responsibility and skill and offering higher pay. The role of Lead Caregiver is the next step after a successful stint as a Caregiver. In this role you will still maintain some Clients but you will start to also support your peers with orientations, trainings and supervisory tasks. This is a great way to grow your skills and build a resume as well as to qualify you for future promotions at Agape. We hope you will start this journey with us by filling out our job application today.

Role Description
Are you one of the best Caregivers in Washington State and are you looking for a new opportunity to advance in your career? If you already have an HCA or CNA and have proven that you have the qualities necessary to be a top Caregiver and if you are ready to become a mentor to newer Caregivers then you should consider joining Agape In Home Care in order to qualify for one of our Lead Caregiver roles. In this role you will still have some regular Caregiving shifts, but you will also transition to more supervisory and mentoring tasks such as introducing new Caregivers to their Clients and teaching Caregivers what you’ve learned from being in the industry for many years. Agape will help train you and provide learning opportunities to help you with career advancement and workforce development.

Next Step
Please reply with a bold, compelling cover letter along with a resume. Your cover letter will be more important than your resume in convincing us you are the right person for this role.
