You really need to be more specific as to your location. Michigan is a big state, ‘ya know?

P.S. — I just checked the Sunday edition of the The Detroit Free Press and our local paper, The Sentry, here in Sterling Heights, and found nothing in the Classified. I suggest that you keep looking in your local paper on your side of town and put up a bright-colored, attention-getting sign at the local grocery store. Good luck!

  1. In the United States there is a network of organizations called Area Agencies on Aging. There is an Area Agency on Aging serving every community in the United States and in U.S. territories. These folks know about different organizations that need workers in the field of caregiving or companions. Since qualifications vary by state and territory, they would also know about the requirements for the kind of work you are wanting to do. They also may be able to connect you to an individual or family caregiver who needs immediate help.

    You can call toll-free 1-800-677-1116 to find the contact information for the specific Area Agency on Aging in Michigan that can help you get the information you need. Call the Area Agency on Aging and ask to speak with the staff person who handles the “Family Caregiver” or “In-Home Care” program. Tell this person that you seek employment as a caregiver and ask them questions about possible work in the area and qualifications. You might also ask them for organizations in the area that might be looking for home companions or paid caregivers.

    While education requirements and experience will vary by what state you are in and what type of job you wish to do, credible organizations and potential employers will require a background check.

    I hope this helps. Best wishes and good luck!
