As a Health Aide working with VNS, we understand the importance of supporting caregivers who provide essential care for their family members or friends. Our mission is to assist caregivers in navigating the paperwork process so they can receive fair compensation for their dedicated service. Here’s how Health Aides work with caregivers to ensure they receive the support they deserve:
Streamlined Paperwork Assistance:
We recognize that dealing with paperwork can be overwhelming, but we’re here to simplify the process. We help people complete the necessary paperwork efficiently and accurately. We guide you through each step, ensuring all requirements are met.
Caregivers who work with VNS receive a competitive rate of $21.09 per hour for their invaluable services. We believe in recognizing the hard work and commitment of caregivers, and this rate reflects our appreciation for the essential care they provide.
Paid Sick Leave:
We understand that caregivers may face unexpected health challenges themselves. To support their well-being, for every 30 hours worked, caregivers accumulate 1 hour of paid sick leave. This paid sick leave is also provided at the same rate of $21.09 per hour, giving caregivers peace of mind when they need time off due to illness.
Accumulating Sick Leave:
Caregivers have the ability to save up to 56 hours of sick leave in a year, ensuring they have sufficient coverage in case of extended health-related absences. This accumulation of sick leave allows caregivers to balance their own health needs with their caregiving responsibilities.
Caregivers receive their well-deserved compensation on a weekly basis through direct deposit. This regular payment schedule helps caregivers manage their finances efficiently and ensures they receive their earnings promptly.
