​ ​​​​​​​Being a Home Instead CAREGiverWhat is it really like to be a Home Instead Senior Care® CAREGiver?

​A Day in the Life of a Professional CAREGiver

As a member of our team, you will serve seniors and their families throughout our area.  Your specific duties will vary by the client as well as your level of expertise and training. From basic help around the house, assisting with personal hygiene, providing pet care, to providing respite for family caregivers---our CAREGivers will always be informed of necessary services and important requests, our client's routines and preferences, and will discuss each assignment personally with our office prior to their first shift. We offer personalized introductions, advanced "shadows" with other team mates working with the client, and in-depth Plans of Care written by our client care team. Questions while at work? We are available 24/7 for urgent matters and are always seeking to help our CAREGivers develop in the field. 

Life changes constantly. You may find your client napping a lot one day and very chatty the next. One day may find you driving your senior to the lab for a blood draw, while the next day sees you listening to old radio programs on CD. No matter what each day brings, you must be prepared to meet it with grace and good cheer. The one constant in your life as a CAREGiver? Variety.
