Do you have experience taking care of an older family member? Maybe you’ve helped your grandmother tidy up around the house and run errands, or provided transportation for her when she could no longer drive. Maybe you were there when a loved one was injured or recovering from surgery, or maybe you’ve provided assistance for a family member with disabilities. No matter what your background, a compassionate heart and experience with providing care for others could be the start of a fulfilling caregiving career.
As a professional caregiver, you will provide older adults with a variety of services, including:
- Friendly companionship
- Transportation to appointments, errands and social outings
- Meal planning and preparation
- Personal care needs such as bathing, showering, assistance with dressing, using the bathroom, and more
- Light housekeeping and laundry
- And much more
You’ll work with the senior where they’re most comfortable: at home. By providing a listening ear, a friendly smile, and an extra pair of helping hands, you’ll enrich the lives of older adults while keeping them comfortable and safe.
There are a number of benefits to pursuing professional caregiving, including:
- Flexibility. Caregiving is a uniquely flexible career. With so many individuals requiring care every day of the week and at all hours of the day, finding a schedule that works for you is easy. Caregiving is a popular career among students, working parents, and retirees for exactly this reason.
- A sense of purpose. If you’re looking for a heart-driven career that will empower you to make a real difference in your community, caregiving is right for you. By working in a hands-on capacity with your clients day in and day out, you’ll build lasting relationships with people you would never otherwise meet. This will enable you to assist them in a meaningful way and provide them with companionship.
- Growth opportunities. Senior Home Care of Tucson offers our employed caregivers ongoing training and personal mentorship to ensure that caregivers’ skills are always developing and growing. As a professional caregiver, you will have the opportunity to specialize in an area of care, or move from caregiving into scheduling, training, or management.
