FAQs

Senior Care 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: Even if you don’t have professional caregiving experience, you can be a Home Instead caregiver.  They consider personal caregiving experience, caring for a friend or family member, just as valuable as professional caregiving experience.  Their training program is so thorough that I learned everything I needed to know to provide confident care right away.  If you have a compassionate heart and a desire to make a difference, they will show you the rest.
