A 9 to 5 work week is not for everyone. Many parents feel the need for something more flexible, especially when trying to balance their children’s schedules. Also, in recent years, more and more people have been choosing flexible careers to support the work-life balance they desire. Why? Flexible work offers people more freedom to earn while being able to manage their personal lives, keeping up with healthcare appointments, seeing family and friends, self-care, etc. Caregiving offers the opportunity for a truly rewarding career, on YOUR schedule.
Work-life balance is high on many people’s list of priorities these days. The ability to have a career that allows you to feel as though you’re making a difference on the job and have the time and bandwidth to spend quality time with the ones you love and take care of your personal life used to be a novel idea. Now, this type of flexibility is in demand, and a career in caregiving can provide it.
Caregiving is a uniquely flexible career. Our clients require care every day of the week and at all hours of the day, which means finding a schedule that works for you is easy. Perhaps you prefer working in the mornings and having your evenings free for family time. Maybe working weekends is more your speed. As a caregiver with Senior HomeCare of Tucson, you can create a work schedule that fits your lifestyle.
Work from “Home”
During the pandemic, working from home became a necessity. Then, it turned into a preference for many workers. Working from home is appealing for a number of reasons — no supervisor looking over your shoulder, no stuffy offices, and a more relaxed dress code, just to name a few. But there are downsides too, including a lack of social interaction.
However, as a caregiver, you get the best of both worlds — rewarding work in a home environment while assisting seniors and providing social interaction with interesting individuals who closely match your personality. You may spend the day sharing your favorite recipes with a senior who needs help with meal preparation, cleaning and helping with laundry, providing companionship in the form of playing games, reading, or taking a stroll through the park. Other caregiving duties may include:
- Personal care assistance, including help with taking baths or showers and getting dressed
- Running errands, like grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions
- Providing transportation to doctor’s appointments or social outings
- And more
Are You Caregiver Material?
People spend years studying and training for a career only to find it isn’t what they’re passionate about. That’s because most jobs don’t require passion. For caregiving, passion is arguably the main requirement. Having a passion for working with seniors and those in need of help at home, providing life-changing support, a trustworthy nature, and genuine care and empathy are what make our team the best in the business. If this sounds like you, then a career in caregiving might be a great fit!
