The holidays are here, which means it’s gift-giving season. While you are contemplating what to get for friends and loved ones this year, don’t neglect a great gift for yourself – a new career!
The COVID-19 pandemic caused many people to reevaluate both their personal and professional lives. Millions of Americans are leaving high-stress careers and seeking flexibility and a sense of purpose that they weren’t able to find in their former jobs. If you have found yourself in a similar situation, a career in caregiving might be the best present you can give yourself this year.
Most people today want to feel good about their career path. They seek a work-life balance that makes sense for their families as well. A career as a caregiver can provide these benefits and much more. Caregiving is an essential, high-demand profession that not many people even know about, and in-home caregivers reap a number of benefits and rewards that go beyond simply collecting a paycheck, including:
- A greater sense of happiness. A fundamental truth for most of us is that helping others makes us happy. Caregivers help some of the most vulnerable members of our society each and every day, which infuses their work with a sense of purpose and happiness.
- A diverse job experience. Caregivers work with people of all ages, lifestyles, backgrounds, races, and abilities. Each day is different, which helps keep work interesting and exciting all while allowing the caregiver to build a dynamic set of skills.
- Flexible schedules. More and more people are abandoning traditional 9-5 careers in favor of jobs that offer flexibility, and caregiving can provide that. Caregivers often have the freedom to choose between full-time or part-time work. They can choose clients who need assistance on nights, weekends, or whatever best fits the caregiver’s lifestyle.
- A feeling of true appreciation. Lack of appreciation is yet another reason many people today are seeking different careers. Everyone likes to feel appreciated for their work. And as a caregiver, appreciation comes not just from your employer, but from the clients and families who are helped each day.
- Building positive relationships. The ability to build strong relationships with clients is one of the most fun and rewarding aspects of a caregiving career. As a senior’s day-to-day support, caregivers have the unique chance to get to know different people from different walks of life in a way that few others can.
