Job Pool Program

Table Of Contents:

The Job Pool Registry is a registry of names of area people interested in working for seniors. The Job Pool is designed to connect seniors who need private hire assistance with people who are willing to provide these services.

This is a private hire situation; Job Pool registrants are not Office for the Aging employees and the OFA does not pay for the hire. Whoever wants the work completed is responsible for checking references, clearly articulating the work to be completed, negotiating a rate of pay, and paying for the service.

We have names for hire under the following categories:

  • Housekeeping
  • Shopping & Errands
  • Transportation
  • Meal Preparation
  • Laundry
  • Personal Care
  • Companion
  • Yard Work
  • Snow Shoveling.

If you would like Job Pool names sent to you, call Melissa @ 867.1415 or Jodi @ 867.1124; they will want to know what kind of help you are looking for (housekeeping, transportation, etc.) & where you live.


If you want to be listed in the Job Pool Registry: see below under "documents" section for the forms that need to be completed & submitted to us or you can
call Melissa @ 867.1415 or Jodi @ 867.1124 and they will send you a registration package.

All names in the Job Pool have been screened through the Sheriff's Department, but, yes, you should always check their references! Yes, the list of names you will receive will include the persons references.
