ALBANY— There is a home health care shortage in the United States, and that means businesses like Attentive Care of Albany, Inc. are looking to hire.
Attentive Care provides a path for continued independence and a happier lifestyle for its clients. It’s also a staffing agency that provides facility staffing services and employment opportunities. Their employment programs include free personal care aide training, and a PCA certificate is earned upon successful completion. They specialize in RN, LPN, CNA, HHA, and PCA jobs.
“We, as a company, have a massive amount of employment opportunities,” said Kristin Hoin, Agency Manager at Attentive Care. “For people who are looking for free training to enter this field, we are really anxious to pull from a new pool of people.” She added that, beyond the requirement to be 18-years old, potential employees can range from someone looking towards their first job, to someone looking to take on a part-time job during retirement.
As an agency that has been serving the community for more than 35 years, Attentive Care understands what it takes to provide the best level of care. The staff prides themselves on delivering expert, compassionate health care services from qualified professionals into their clients’ homes, partners’ facilities and beyond.
Personal Care Aides and Home Health Aides provide assistance and support with activities of daily living and Registered and Licensed Practical Nurses provide skilled care. All of their caregivers have been screened for proper training, qualifications and meet physical requirements.
Consulting with the physician, Attentive Care provides whatever is necessary and appropriate to sustain the best quality of life with no compromises. They believe in placing an emphasis on the companionship and positive interaction between their well-chosen caregivers and their clients. They see it as a valued aspect of what makes Attentive Care stand out. Private-duty care for individuals is available at the client’s home, hospital, health related facilities and independent housing.
