We have a sweet toddler in Bourbonnais who needs nurses to join her
home care team.
A part time day position is available - every Monday and every

What is "private duty" home care?
Most people associate home care service to a day full of driving
all over a county or two to perform back-to-back short visits to
seniors for general screenings, checkups or things like wound care.
Those services are a valuable part of home care but not what our
agency specializes in.
Private duty home care is our specialty. Private duty care is
working with one client for a full shift each day. Most caregivers
work with 1-3 different clients near their hometown throughout the
month's assignments. We have both part time and full time positions
available ongoing. Our minimum schedule with a caregiver is 1 shift
every other week - this allows flexibility to work around another
job but still keeps you current on the client's care, medications &
Our nursing assignments often include care for pediatric clients,
our clients range in age from infants to adults & seniors. Many of
our clients needing nursing services have medical needs that
require 24/7 monitoring and care - our nursing care supplements
care provided by parents and family members. Our nurses care for
clients while their loved ones are either out of the home at work
or in another part of the home sleeping to be ready to go to work
or to take over the client's care the next morning.
The shifts vary according to the client's needs and are scheduled
to meet the client/family needs:
typical shifts last anywhere from 8 to 12 hours per shift
start & end shift times vary case by case but are steady in each
home - for example, client Molly may need nursing 8a-4p daily but
client Alex needs care 10a-6p ongoing - the shifts for each client
flex to meet the family's personal needs
some clients need care 7 days a week while others concentrate their
shifts to weekdays only
shift needs could include day, evening or night shifts
Many home care clients will need ongoing care long term - some for
just a few years, others ongoing throughout their lives. Home care
can be a long-term career that you'll absolutely love.
You will get to see what a difference your ongoing care can make to
a client and their entire family.
Our nursing teams become a special type of extended family to the
clients and their family.
We've had some nurses grow their nursing careers next to their
pediatric clients and continue to care for them for 10+ years and
Work in a more relaxed environment without the endless and
exhausting stress and drama that can often be present in facility
What type of care is needed?
Since we care for clients while their family members are out of the
home or asleep, the care we provide is total care from A-Z for
anything the client needs which could include:
G-tube feedings & medications
Bathing, dressing & personal care
Pulse ox monitoring
Vent status monitoring
No experience with trachs or vents - NO PROBLEM!
First and foremost, our clients are stable enough to be safely
cared for at home by a single caregiver at their side. The nursing
intervention we provide in the home to our clients helps to
identify and control minor concerns before they have the chance to
become bigger issues.
The nursing skills you'll learn and master from working with our
home care clients will be valuable throughout your entire nursing
career. Many of our clients have clinical needs, such as trachs or
vents, that even seasoned hospital nurses haven't had much
experience working with before. This is where Anchor's experience
comes in - our Nursing Supervisors, current nursing staff and
families work together to make sure that new team members get the
hands-on training needed prior to working independent shifts. We
work with each nurse individually to make they feel comfortable in
the care. We do not ever want a nurse to feel he or she is in a
position to care for a client when they are not confident in the
skills and care required. Our Admin team members have all been with
Anchor for several years, we love our jobs, we want you to love
