Why Katie Chose Home Instead for a Care Professional Career:

I chose Home Instead because they keep me local; I have flexibility in my schedule; the sign on bonus is a plus, and I really appreciated the bonus they gave for referring my brother to come onboard. The office staff are always available if you have questions or concerns. They work with you. I treasure my time with clients. Even though a client may not remember me from one visit to another, I know when I play music, she hums to it. Not every day is the same, but when I play her music, she loves when we dance to it as well. That is why I like to work here.

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: That’s easy! Home Instead doesn’t require previous caregiving experience. Their training program is so thorough that I learned everything I needed to know to provide confident care right away. All I had to bring to my interview was a compassionate heart.
