Chicago Caregiver Positions and C.N.A. Positions Continue to Grow

Senior care companies continue to launch in the Chicagoland area, with more than 50 new senior home care agencies opening just in the last year. More caregivers are needed for part-time and full-time positions as senior care moves to the home.

PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - CHICAGO -- Caregiverlist, the nation’s only professional caregiver career center, announces Chicago, Illinois, metropolitan area as a top city in the nation for senior caregiving and Certified Nursing Assistant jobs.  As the Chicagoland metro area has experienced a high growth in new senior home care agencies and assisted living communities to keep up with the care needs of area seniors.

Chicagoland seniors prefer to stay in Chicago and even the snowbirds are just that – they come back to enjoy Chicago’s summer weather and lakefront activities.  Downtown Chicago offers multiple healthcare options and hospitals including the award-winning Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago (RIC).  Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago is a leader in care for stroke rehabilitation.

“As downtown Chicago has had added more condominium communities for empty-nesters and continues to offer cultural offerings in the city throughout the summer, seniors are choosing to retire in Chicago,” says Caregiverlist, Inc. CEO Julie Northcutt.   “There will continue to be part-time and full-time job opportunities at licensed senior home care agencies, assisted living communities and nursing homes.”

The Clare, an assisted living community, recently opened in downtown Chicago has been joined by more than 100 senior home care agencies opening their doors in Chicagoland in the last 3 years.  National senior home care companies such as Synergy, Home Helpers, FirstLight, Home Care Assistance, Comforcare, Hyde Park Home Care and many more have opened new locations in Chicago’s metropolitan area recently.

Caregiverlist provides online tools for professional senior caregivers and provides a 10-hour online caregiver certification training which meets the state of Illinois training requirements.  http://www.caregiverlist.com/SeniorCaregiverTraining.aspx
Illinois’ Department of Health established a requirement for 8 hours of training for professional caregivers in 2008. Caregivers may build a resume and apply for a Chicago caregiver job or C.N.A. job on Caregiverlist.com

Caring individuals are encouraged to become professional senior caregivers.  Basic criminal background checks are required and those with personal caregiving experience can begin as companion caregivers.  Caregiverlist provides a listing of Certified Nursing Assistant schools in the Chicagoland area with admission requirements and a sample C.N.A. test and a practice C.N.A. test for those who would like to consider becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant.  Nursing homes and hospitals must maintain a minimum staffing level of C.N.A.’s and ongoing career opportunities will continue to be available for professional caregivers and C.N.A.’s in Chicagoland.
