We all are very hopeful for times ahead where COVID-19 is less and less of a concern as cases drop and more people are vaccinated. However, for right now we are still being extra vigilant for the safety of all our clients, staff, and everyone’s families.
With that in mind, please remember you are still required to let us know of any COVID-19 exposures, including if someone in your household has been exposed, has symptoms, or is awaiting testing. This is still important, even as more and more people become vaccinated. Also, if you have received your vaccination, please feel free to let us know so we can add to your record here as well.
Shift Insurance Benefit
Guided Living’s new Shift Insurance benefit will offer additional stability to our caregiver team’s hours and earnings. If, for any reason, you have a shift that is ‘today’ or ‘tomorrow’ that is cancelled by the client, you will be guaranteed to be paid for those hours as long as you agree to be “on call” during that same time to take a different shift within a similar driving distance if needed.
If you prefer to not be “on call” during that time, that is no problem. However, you would not receive payment for the cancelled shift in that case.
If you have any questions, please reach out anytime any time. I am excited that we are able to offer this benefit to our team!
Shift Insurance Overview
- If you have a shift that is ‘today’ or ‘tomorrow’ that is cancelled, you will be guaranteed to be paid for those hours.
- A requirement to be paid Shift Insurance is that you are available “on call” for those same hours if another shift within a similar driving distance is offered.
- If you prefer to not be “on call,” that is perfectly ok, but in that case, you would not be paid for those hours through Shift Insurance.
If you see a message come through asking about availability for a shift, and you are unavailable, please send a quick message back to let the scheduling team know. That way, they will know to stop sending you messages for that shift. Those responses are very much appreciated as the team works to get the best schedule setup for both clients and caregivers. Also, please feel free to reach out and let scheduling know if certain clients are/aren’t a good fit or if your availability changes – that way they can be sure they are sending the shifts that are going to be the best fit for you. Thank you very much!
