About the Role

We are growing to be one of the most recognized names for quality senior care in Central Texas and we are seeking Personal Care Assistants to perform any and all non-medical activities that result in making our clients comfortable, safe and able to live where they choose to live.

Why We Are Different

In everything that we do, we strive to make the lives of seniors in Central Texas and the lives of our employees more fulfilling. Our mission is simply to provide the highest quality, personalized care to seniors and their families.

Our founder Jennifer Prescott, RN, MSN, CDP spent many years as a hospice nurse and as well as leading healthcare agencies. During this time she recognized gaps in care for seniors that chose to stay in their homes. Once care needs grew beyond basic companion care, seniors and their families too often were assigned caregivers that were unprepared. There clearly was a need for higher quality private care and the skilled management of that care. It was this unfulfilled need and Jennifer's relentless passion that became the early roots of Blue Water. We recently celebrated our 5 year anniversary and added Blue Water Hospice in 2021.

We strive and pride ourselves on being different than our competitors. And we believe this difference starts with our employees. That is why we believe so strongly in supporting employees with a stellar management team that has 100+ years of geriatric care experience and is staffed by RN's that are on call 24x7.

Burnout is serious and far too common in our field, but we believe it can be prevented with better client relationships. We are investing in your well being by partnering with Intuily, a matching service which will connect you with clients based on personality type and similar interests. This unique way of pairing is fun and easy to do; play a 3-minute game and match with clients based on your personality! Be confident that you are providing the best care possible through better human connections. Empower your day by taking the guesswork out of work.

It is no wonder that we were Hill Country News "Best of the Best" in 2020, and 2021, and Best of Senior Resource Guide 2021, and Austin American Statesman Readers Choice 2022!

Are you having problems finding enough hours to meet your needs (we guarantee 40 hours per week)? Are you looking for a company where you can grow your career?
