​​CAREGiver Pay and Benefits​​

It's hard to put a price on the satisfaction our CAREGiversSM get from helping others in need, but we do just that. We provide excellent benefits and wages. Here's what we offer.

Compensation

You may receive tips in hugs, but you'll also receive a real pay cheque for your caregiving. Our pay rates vary according to level of training and type of shift. Beyond wages, we also reimburse CAREGivers for mileage driven in your personal vehicle when you provide incidental transportation for your client. Pay cheque will also include Vacation pay, statutory holiday pay, Canada Pension Plan and EI contributions. 

 

Insurance

Caregivers are employees of Home Instead Senior Care and are covered by WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board. Please contact our Ottawa team at (613) 434-1716 for more information. 

Other Benefits

Our CAREGivers report a high degree of satisfaction in their work. No doubt this is because of the many fringe benefits that come from working with Home Instead Senior Care.

  • Job training: Beyond learning practical skills, you can educate yourself about complex diseases like Alzheimer's.
  • Flexible schedules: Work when it suits you. Together, we will tailor a schedule that works for you. 
  • Work close to home: You will be serving seniors in your own community. We may even be able to match you with a client who lives in your neighborhood.
  • Make new friends: Our CAREGivers typically forge genuine bonds with the people they serve. Plus, you will meet other Home Instead® CAREGivers and have opportunities to develop professional relationships with them.
  • ​Did we mention satisfaction? Few things feel better in life than giving back. As a Home Instead CAREGiver, you experience the privilege of giving back to your community with every shift you complete. That feeling is priceless.
