Heart of a CAREGiver
Every single day, families are struggling to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs, and trying to care for a senior family member. Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles help seniors live longer and continue to lead more productive lives. But the numbers also tell another story. More and more children need to help care for their parents. Women, especially, are caught between balancing the care of their parents with piano lessons and Little League for the kids, a full-time job, church, community, and volunteer activities. These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day; the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken. That's where you come in.
As a dedicated CAREGiver, you can help these families restore balance, order and peace to their lives and help their loved ones remain at home.
Caring for seniors is a labor of love that requires a special person with just the right touch. That's why, when you provide care with the Home Instead Senior Care® network, you become a CAREGiver with a capital "CARE." Becoming a paid caregiver is a unique job with many joys and rewards, as well as responsibilities and challenges, both physical and emotional. As a Home Instead CAREGiver, you'll meet wonderful people, build fulfilling relationships, and make a difference in the lives of your clients.
The Role of a CAREGiver
As a CAREGiver, you are able to use the attributes that make you unique to bring a better quality of living to seniors. Home Instead CAREGivers often become like a surrogate family member to the seniors they serve. These seniors will rely on you for companionship and the activities of daily living such as light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, errands and much needed companionship.
