Caregiving Careers in Canton

Choose a Flexible and Satisfying Career in Caregiving

At Legacy Caregivers, we make caregiving easier and more fulfilling for all parties involved, including our Direct Support Professionals. When you join our team, you can make a positive difference in the lives of individuals with disabilities and their families. Being a Direct Support Professional means that you aren’t stuck in an office all day. You help our clients partake in various kinds of activities and no two days are the same.

You also get to enjoy a flexible schedule, whether you are looking for extra income, a weekend job, or a full-time dependable income. Being a Direct Support Professional can be a great fit for college students. We value our staff members and promote from within, rapidly for those who have a compassionate attitude, great work ethic, and are eager to grow.

Since you make a significant impact on our clients’ lives, we also want to make administrative tasks convenient for you. Our user-friendly application SMART Care allows our Direct Support Professionals to take care of such matters from their smartphones to simplify their day-to-day duties.

What our team members can do with SMART Care includes:

  • View and organize their schedule, including requesting time off
  • Clock in and out with ease
  • See their total accumulated hours week to week
  • Check the list of open shifts if they want extra hours or overtime
  • Use the message center to communicate with their coworkers or managers
