Cozy Living Home Care Employment Opportunities


Posted August 11, 2016


Place of Employment: Client homes - Various Locations

We are currently hiring caregivers who are warm and compassionate people who love being with the elderly.  We assist the elderly with activities of daily living to help them remain independent in their own homes. 

Caregiving is about so much more than just physically assisting someone; it is about being a companion and a friend.  Our caregivers are empathetic and understanding, they listen with an open mind and caring heart, they slow down and match the pace of the senior for whom they are caring.  Caregivers must be responsible, able to work independently, and be incredibly reliable.  Punctuality is essential. Ideally, applicants will be seeking 25-35 hours or more bi-weekly and could have daytime, evening as well as weekend availability.

Applicants do not need to have specific education.  Experience in caregiving is an asset, whether it be professionally, or caring for a family member.   

To properly serve our clients, our caregivers must meet each of the following eligibility requirements:

  • speak, read and write English clearly enough to fill out charting documentation forms.
  • have a valid Ontario drivers' licence with a clean driving record
  • own a reliable and fully insured vehicle (necessary since many of our clients require transportation to appointments)
  • have a completely clear Vulnerable Sector Background Check
  • have no history of alcohol or substance abuse
  • be healthy and not carry a communicable disease (such as TB)

Our caregivers will go through a screening process that will include:


    Thorough Reference Check

      Caregivers are initally hired on a part-time basis and hours can range from part-time to full-time.  Our clients require individualized care that can range from a few hours per day to 24-hour around the clock care.  Shifts are a minimum of 2 hours, but can vary in length. 

      We pair each of our clients with a specific caregiver, so you are consistently working with the same person (or people) allowing you to build rapport and develop relationships with our clients.  We aim to carefully match our caregivers and clients based on personality, interests, and scheduling availability, so there may be a time lapse between date of hire/training and actually being placed with a client.
