We highly value our CAREGivers, and that’s why we asked our CAREGivers Deb and Paige to tell you what it can be like to work with Home Instead®.

CAREGiver Profiles

Hear from Deb and Paige

 

 

What was your background prior to Caregiving?

Deb: I became a CAREGiver in June of 2021, after managing Nebraska Sports for 26 years. At the sporting goods store, I saw something different every day and loved being able to help families. During the outbreak of COVID-19, my job wasn’t filling my bucket as much as it once was, so I decided to attend a drive-thru career fair where I heard about Home Instead.

Paige: I joined the Home Instead team in June of 2021, after being a hairstylist for 13 years. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I found that people had become less appreciative of one another, and I wanted a more fulfilling position.

 

What do you enjoy most about the position?

Deb: I love the flexibility that the job offers and that I can now see more of my husband of 39 years. When I wake up in the morning, I am excited to go to work because it comes naturally to me.

Paige: The flexibility of this job has allowed me to continue raising my own kids. With my kids, I am always moving and on the go, but caregiving has taught me how to slow down.
