  • Embedment-Time (72-84 hour live-in shifts) 4 positions available
  • Part-Time/PRN (Hiring Immediately) 3 positions availableWHAT IS EMBEDMENT?Inspired by quarantine efforts during COVID-19, BSL eliminated most 8-hour work shifts, and instead shifted to 84-hour shifts every other week (for overnight sleep-shift homes). This dramatically reduced the number of staff cycling through homes each day. Our caregivers love how they can work 3 1/2 days and take 10 1/2 days off. Our individuals love this because their caregiver feels more like a roommate rather than a shift employee. Embedments have been such a success, this has become our new default staffing model.COMPENSATION & BENEFITSHourly compensation has a range between $15 - $17 and starting embedment shifts are able to earn up to $1,200- $1,400 per week!
