Why Ohio Living is different

  • Build relationships. More than any other area of nursing, home care allows you to foster a bond with patients and their families that is unlike any other. You’ll enjoy the appreciation and closeness that make your work more rewarding.
  • Be independent. You have some flexibility to see your assigned patients for the shift as you prefer, as long as you are self-motivated and efficient in your time management. These roles offer excellent balance with mainly daytime hours.
  • Many ways to care. It takes a special person to adapt to differing home settings with skill and compassion. Ohio Living also offers opportunities at our residences and within hospice care, should you wish to explore new areas.
  • Support and rewards. While you will be working independently, you will be supported by the RN Case Manager and our scheduler. We offer the technology you need for patient records. Rewards include mileage reimbursement.
