Southeast Wyoming. $11/hr. Doesn't matter what shift you work, unless you are doing an overnight "sleep" (ha, right!) shift, then it's only $9/hr (not worth it, still have to work and flip your days/nights over, so I say "no" to those clients). I have 20+ yrs in the medical field and as a caregiver, have worked for the company for almost 2 years, no raise in sight and have never heard of anyone getting one. I work overnight shifts, varying from 10 - 16 hours, depending on how short staffed we are. Daytime staff work anywhere from 1 - 24 hours, depending on the need and the agreement with the client/family.

No. It substitutes for training with personal cares experience but Home Instead Senior Care is a non-medical company.

This depends on the franchise so I would suggest asking this question when you apply.

I applied as “experienced” and the application process is very extensive but when you’re hired, not worth it. I was disappointed because my first four months, I only have two clients, 3 hours each per week. Later they gave me two permanent clients, four hours each per week. They’ll force you to work nights and weekends if you want clients

At my location, I was started off with 36 hours. Pressured into taking more clients and working six days a week right out of training. I’m now going into my third week with this company and am at a minimum of 40 hours (this week will be 46 hours) and I’ve only had one day off. They call me nearly every other day to pick up the slack of other employees. So the hours are available here, but they are ridiculous time schedules that make getting much done in your personal life the true job.
