Do you enjoy working for the Cahoon Care team? How would you like to make a little extra money? 

If the answers to these questions are yes, why not refer your experienced colleagues, friends or relatives to work for us, too!

You can earn up to a $115.00 value in referral payout!!
  • A $15.00 coffee or movie gift card will be sent to you once your referral is hired and works shifts with no incidents for one full week.

There are a few rules in place to collect the referral bonus:

Get Ready for Gardening!
While the winter doldrums can affect anyone, seniors are often more prone to seasonal depression because they can't get out as readily. They also may be dealing with colds or other viruses.

While spring is still a couple of months away, there's no time like the present to start thinking about what to do once the warmer weather arrives.

Caregivers or families of seniors can help get their focus off the cold winter by encouraging them to start planning now for the growing season. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Monthly Drawing for a $50 Gas Card
How do you get your name in the drawing?

  • Cover a shift offered for the same day.
  • Cover a sick-call shift. (Let's all try to stay healthy!)
  • Work a holiday not on your scheduled day.
  • Allow flexibility in your schedule to meet clients' needs.
  • At the discretion of the office staff.

The raffle begins on the first of every month and the drawing for the previous month happens the same day.

A winner will be picked randomly on the first of every month from all the names entered in the drawing.

  • Your name may be entered once or many times for each noteworthy occurrence.
  • A new collection of names will begin on April 1st with a winner drawn on May 1st, with the process repeating on the 1st of each month.
  • It is at the discretion of the office to continue or end this promotion.
