Want a job where you’ll make a difference?

Higher pay isn’t the only benefit of working in senior care. It’s a job where small acts of kindness are greatly appreciated, people value your contributions, and you can take the first step towards a career in healthcare.

High school students are in high demand in senior care. Flexible hours allow you work after school, on weekends or over the summer — and you typically earn more than you would working other entry-level jobs.
