Becoming a home caregiver means you are part of each client’s life. Your job, in addition to helping with everyday activities like cooking or transportation, is to enrich the lives of the people you work with. Our caregivers have a heartfelt desire to help others, and we make sure to give them opportunities to succeed and grow.
Become the Best You Can Be
We don’t just want to provide high-quality care for our clients, we also want our caregivers to be professionally successful. In order to achieve this goal, we offer free training programs so that you can learn more about caregiving techniques.
This home caregiver program includes over 2000 courses and provides 70+ accreditations, which let you improve overall or focus on specific types of home care. We don’t expect these to all get done in a day – the courses are available through an online portal that you can access any day of the week, so that you can make progress at your own pace.
Characteristics of a Good Home Caregiver
We have seen that some of our best caregivers share certain traits. If you are interested in being a home caregiver, here are things that we look for:
- Good Communication: Talking with families, coworkers, and especially clients is necessary for good caregivers. A good amount of this comes from confidence, which will come through professional development and general experience, but we can’t teach everything when it comes to speaking! One of the key parts of communication is empathy, which we look for in all our employees.
- Resourcefulness: Being a home caregiver isn’t a cookie-cutter job. If you work with multiple families, or even just work with 1, you will need to be creative and resourceful to manage unforeseen issues and create life-enriching experiences.
- Receptive: During your time as a home caregiver, we will provide constructive feedback, and clients or families will as well. Being able to accept and adapt to this feedback can differentiate a good caregiver from a great one.
