    DON is usually on backup call 24/7, 365 days yr. Depending on how large agency is , # supervisory staff + #yrs home care experience along with how well run agency is will determine amount calls received nightly. ( Insist on blackberry phone so can screen vm from answering service.)

    Salary range is lower than for Skilled Medicare agency ~ $75,000 - 80,000 to start with no Management experience.
