Professional Caregiving Q&A
A: I make scheduled visits to seniors’ homes to provide companionship and help them with everyday tasks. Sometimes that means going to their family home, and other times it means serving them in a care facility.
A: Every day is different, and I love that variety! One day I might be cooking lunch and playing cards with a client, and the next day I may be helping a different client. No matter what tasks I’m performing, I leave each shift with a deep sense of accomplishment.
A: I feel valued in my role as a Home Instead Care Pro, I have access to great training and support to help me do my job well and make a difference every day in the lives of the clients I support.
You are a Care Professional
“Here’s what our caregivers have to say"
As a CareGiver that has been working for this company for almost three months now, I have to say that the people here are amazing. They are able to cater to both the client's and CareGiver's schedules as well as check in on the needs for both sides. I really appreciate their speedy responses to questions and inquiries and their willingness to go above and beyond to fulfill needs, especially with a shortage of CareGivers in this time of distress. I would definitely trust this company with my family members if they ever needed care. Keep up the good work!!
I have recently started working for Home Instead in San Jose and I absolutely love it! My patients are incredible and the team I work with is the absolute best. Everyone is so quick to help and COMMUNICATE! I’m thankful for the opportunity I have been given and I look forward to helping as many people as I can :)
Great Company, very supportive with their employees. With the pandemic they made sure the safety of the employees and clients as well as giving the employees the tools and trainings needed.
