A Career You’ll Truly Care About
Are you looking for a rewarding career that truly allows you to make a difference in the lives of others? The Absolute Companion Care team is always interested in speaking to caregivers who align with our mission. We expect a lot, as do the clients and families we serve here in Monkton, MD and all throughout Baltimore and Harford Counties. We seek caregivers who want to make a career of helping others, not those who are simply looking for a job.
Elder care requires a giving personality, commitment, a positive attitude, and a caregiver who embraces caring for the mind, body, spirit, and environment. We always put the client first and expect excellence and dedication from our caregivers. We hire both certified and non-certified companions and caregivers. We also employ LPNs and RNs who maintain licensure and want to work 1-on-1 as a caregiver. We require all of our caregivers to demonstrate the following attributes:
- Dependability, maturity (unrelated to age), presence, patience
- Knowing when to take initiative and when to step back and “go with the flow”
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Evidence of good decision-making and quick thinking skills
- A cup-half-full mentality
- Positive problem-solving skills
- Willingness to learn and grow
- Team skills: willingness to provide support for and receive support from other caregivers and the ability to work together to find compromise
Caregivers who provide personal care for clients are overseen by our RN. We provide training and mentoring to help you feel confident and give the best possible care. Our RN is also a certified CNA/GNA trainer who can provide additional training in geriatric care. We offer required and paid quarterly educational sessions. All caregivers must pass state and federal background checks and random drug testing. We also require all caregivers to have a vehicle, proof of a clean driving record from the MVA, and proof of automobile insurance. All caregivers are hired as employees and are bonded and covered by professional liability insurance.

The in-service “Virtual Dementia Tour” was unlike anything I have experienced in all of my training. For the first time, I was able to see, firsthand, what it feels like to have dementia. It will change the way I provide care. – Jackie
I have been in the health profession for over 30 years but the few years that I have spent with ACC have been THE most rewarding. I feel like I make a real difference. As a team, we treat our clients like we would one of our own family members and I believe that makes us very special and a cut above the rest. We genuinely care for our clients. – Linda
I am so honored to be a part of such a caring, committed, communicative group of caregivers who prioritize the needs of the clients, their efforts to maintain their dignity, their efforts to maintain their independence, and their efforts to stay in their lifelong homes maintaining their lifelong traditions and relationships. – Susan
