Being a professional caregiver/provider does not just benefit the individual you care for. When you’re providing respite, you’re providing a lifeline to a family caregiver. Whether you work with an agency, or provide respite on your own, your services are needed!

There are several ways to become a paid caregiver. You can be hired by:
- A home care agency, adult family home, assisted living facility, or nursing home and be paid by the agency or facility to provide care.
- The person needing care and be paid by him or her directly.
