Temporary Housing for Caregivers

Posted on Jun 4, 2020

Those who go into the profession of caregiving are compassionate, dedicated, and eager to help make the lives of those around them better and more fulfilling.

At Zeus, we know caring for others can be incredibly rewarding. Caregiving work is also demanding, which means it’s important to have a peaceful place to call home.

If you’re a traveling caregiver looking for a spot to put down some temporary roots, we have you covered. Whether you have your heart set on a city apartment or a neighborhood home, our guide to temporary housing for caregivers will help you find your dream spot.

From corporate housing to medical centers, let’s take a closer look at some sites you can use when you’re on-the-move.

Mercy Medical Center

Paving the way for what other medical centers might soon do, Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa is offering temporary housing for caregivers who need another place to stay during the COVID-19 pandemic. In one building, they opened 17 private rooms, each with a bed, shower, and bathroom with plans to open 80 more rooms at Mount Mercy University. Although this type of support for caregivers might not yet be available near you, it might be worth your while to research what sort of local options are at your disposal. Mercy Medical Center and UnityPoint Health are offering these accommodations to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 to those living in the same household as someone who is sick. They also recognize how working long hours combined with multiple day shifts and a long commute is exhausting. As things progress with COVID-19, don’t be afraid to reach out to medical centers in your area and seek advice on tips on housing for a temporary caregiver.

Select Corporate Housing

Select Corporate Housing offers housing for healthcare workers and caregivers who are traveli ng and need a temporary place to stay. They’re known for customized solutions that take into account the emotional energy and demands of being a caregiver. With their slogan—you take care of people all day; let us do the same for you—you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. These rental communities are quiet, which means after a long day or night, you can retreat to a peaceful space that’s not overrun with noise and activity. Select Corporate Housing consolidates all your bills into one monthly payment, so you can bid farewell to the extra headache of multiple things to think about. What’s especially great about this company is that they offer local service specialists, who are hired to help give virtual tours of your new city and select all the spots to explore when you have a day off. If it’s a safe community with an easy move-in procedure you’re after, check out their website and see if they offer lodging in your area-of-choice.

Furnished Finder

Furnished Finder is a popular option for temporary housing for caregivers and those working out of state.

It’s used by over 100 medical staffing companies and covers over 25,000 properties nationwide. If you’re a caregiver who will be at a given location for 30 days or longer, this is a great option that will connect you with others who have similar lifestyles. Once you know where you’re traveling, visit their website and enter the city in the search bar. From there, you can choose from affordable monthly rentals and find a space you’re excited about. What’s nice about Furnished Finder is the variety of locations—whether your assignment is bringing you to Palm Springs, California or Saint Petersburg, Florida, the expansive options for housing make the site simple and user friendly.
