Website improvements are here 


For Employers
Hiring a PCA or Direct Care Worker is even easier thanks to upgrades to our online registry. A preliminary search feature helps consumers quickly find workers who meet their needs. Now you can easily find a worker who lives near you, is available the days and hours you need, or has certain qualifications you require such as a valid driver’s license. You can save your search and sign up for email notifications when a new worker fitting your needs applies for a job.

For Direct Care Workers
Website upgrades benefit workers, as well. Job applicants may now upload resumes to provide more detailed information to prospective employers. Workers who completed an application before these changes took place on December 3 should log into their accounts to answer several new application questions or to upload their resumes. In addition, workers may suspend their application when they no longer wish to respond to inquiries. When you suspend your application, it is not seen by consumers but it is still on the database. You may unsuspend whenever your job situation changes.

Need Help?

Sign up for a free web conference if you would like to “walk through” these changes with us in a special web conference. To register, email eparker@rewardingwork.org.

Post a Job

Consumers and their families may now post job openings directly on our online registries for a $10 fee. Only workers registered with us will be able to respond, and your personal information remains confidential. Job applicants do not contact you directly; responses to your ad are forwarded to you through a secure mailbox system operated by Rewarding Work. Click here for more information.

Direct Care Survey Results Are Now Available

According to a recent survey, the Vermont Direct Care Registry makes it easier for elders and people with disabilities to recruit and hire direct care workers, also known as caregivers. Having qualified caregivers is a key factor for elders and people with disabilities to continue to live independently at home instead of in nursing homes or institutions. The Registry also helps Vermont residents land jobs as direct care workers.

The online Registry – available at www.rewardingwork.org/VT – works by connecting individuals who live in their homes with direct care workers. Direct care workers assist with daily activities that elders and people with disabilities are unable to do for themselves, such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, shopping and other tasks.

The Registry is free of charge to all Vermont residents. Since its launch nearly two years ago, the Registry has registered more than 1,000 individual employers throughout the state who need help to continue living independently at home. More than 1,600 workers have registered as direct care workers.

NEVAAA Publishes Guide to Hiring Caregivers

The Vermont Association of Area Agencies on Aging has published an excellent guide called “Employing a Caregiver in Your Home.” It provides useful information for people who want to hire caregivers directly instead of going through agencies that place their own workers in individuals’ homes.

The guide discusses background checks and employer responsibilities (including penalties if taxes are not withheld) and includes a handy employer checklist. Contact information for other resources, such as the Senior HelpLine, is also listed.

“Employing a Caregiver in Your Home” is available online. Click to read, download and save the guide free of charge.
