10 Reasons to Work for Home Instead
It is always a joyous occasion when our CAREGivers come together. An occasion filled with much laughter and mirth. We are truly a close team! In this video you can see the closeness and cheer of our team as a CAREGiver carefully deliberates her choice during a White Elephant gift exchange.
1) Giving Back to a Generation that is Often Forgotten
Working as a CAREGiver gives us the opportunity to give back to seniors when they need it most. Whether it be an ear to listen to their stories, a fun conversation, a laugh, or a simple smile, once you see the impact these simple kindnesses have, the rewards are returned tenfold.
2) Connecting with the Elderly Through Care and Social Interaction
Nothing compares to the stories seniors can tell. Good stories, sad stories, stories about their lives, travels and families. These interactions are often the best parts of being a CAREGiver.
Through personal care, you become more comfortable caring for a senior’s needs. You become familiar with them and the best way to care for them, creating a trusting relationship.
