Traveling Live-in Caregivers

Live-In Caregiver Jobs: Grandma Joans LLC is a private search firm that specializes in helping families find the best live-in care candidates for their specific needs, to contract privately with as their household employee. 

We specialize in recruiting and screening traveling nurse aides who are willing to relocate anywhere across the USA to move-in with one of our clients.  

All pay rates, services, and schedules are determined between the household employer and the employee.

To work for one of our clients, you must be legal to work and willing to be paid by a  W2 employee paycheck with your taxes withheld for you. Our clients are private families, not companies or agencies. They negotiate the specific requirements of the employment agreement with you, not us.  

We are not a “co-employer” with the family. We don’t hire or employ any live-in caregiver ourselves. We represent families as their private 3rd party recruiters.
