great job for students or any one who needs a flexible schedule.
Caregiver/Companion (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI 49001 – January 26, 2019
a typical day at Homewatch includes looking at what client is available and what type of help is needed, hours vary from 2hrs-12 hour shifts. that is if you don't have a resident/s that you help on daily basis. In my case it took me a few weeks to find a "permanent" client.
when arriving at the home you call from landline and clock in and start helping client with whatever is needed. i worked 3-4 days and 12 hour shifts with the same residents through out the week so getting a routine of what was expected of me was easy. management was great, very professional, and understanding.
the hardest part of the job is its not so stable and hours vary from client to client. when i started most of the clients where only 2 hour limit so had to go to multiple homes through out the day to make ends meet. most enjoyable part of homewatch is being able to meet a complete stranger and watch them become family.
