StaffLink’s Founder and President, Gretchen Curry, has announced on their social media website and via on-line ads that they are seeking to hire 20 new St. Louis area caregiving staff over the next 60 days (July and August) to handle the demand for in-home caregivers as the pandemic extends.

Ms. Curry, the Founder and President of StaffLink says, “Since the onset of the pandemic seniors and their families are expressing an increased interest in aging-in-place in their own homes and securing in-home support.”
