Caregivers & Independent Providers Wanted
One of the biggest difference in our Care Connection program is that you are not working for us! As a caregiver or indepdendent provider, you work for yourself and the client. As your own boss, you will earn more money and self-direct your schedule and salary with the client. That also means more flexibility, building a direct relationship with your clients and taking more control of your own life.
If you would like to explore this wonderful opportunity and service, please contact April Slee, Care Connection Director, at 360.586.4491 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to guiding you through the simple steps of starting your own busines as well as providing on-going training, support, and specialized classes!
Care Connection has new and improved marketing flyers for posting on community boards.

We appreciate you helping us spread the word about home care services vital to many in our our community.
Caregiver in the Spotlight
Ever since she was a young girl growing up in Perth, Australia, hanging out with people who needed care was very much a part of Sandy Lestenkof’s life. Many family members were in the healthcare field including her dad who helped build a facility for people with disabilities. “It was very natural to hang out and play with these people. My whole life revolved around being with them, so it was a normal experience. I found them to be more forgiving, nonjudgmental and truly happy to be with us.” To read more, click here.
