Hi Maria, Good Questions. First, I just want to confirm. When you say provider are you meaning professional caregiver? I will assume that is what you are interested in. Any agency should be able to answer your questions on requirements for caregiver type positions? I can answer them from a Griswold Home Care perspective. When it comes to transportation, we tell our caregivers, they need to have reliable transportation. In some cases caregivers can make not driving work but it does limit the type of clients / locations where you can work. Many of the clients homes are pretty far away from bus routes and other public transit. In most cases when we an applicant is a non-driver, we recommend that they apply at a facility where they will have a single location they work. Families can be paid to be a provider/ caregiver for other family members. Usually this only makes sense when there is a third party payer involved (medicaide or long term care insurance). In both instances a family member can be hired through an agency, provide care for their family and be paid by the agency. Thank you for your interest in this area of healthcare. Patient care is critically important and will only become more important in the future. You can read our blog where we talk about the aging population and the rising cost of home care. https://www.upwardhealthcare.com/single-post/2018/04/11/Providing-a-Solution-for-the-Increase-in-Home-Care-Costs Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any additional questions.
