Provide Elderly Homecare Assistance - Be a Comfort Keeper®
If you have a caring, loving spirit and like to take an active role in helping others, we want you to join our elderly homecare assistance team.
When you provide elderly homecare assistance as a caregiver, you will be a greater part of each client’s life. This isn’t just about everyday activities like preparing food or light housework, it’s also about connecting with other people. We look for caregivers that have a loving spirit and a true desire to help others, because that’s what makes the best home care.
Comfort Keepers has a unique approach to home care, called Interactive Caregiving™. Interactive Caregiving focuses on engaging each client through the small things in life. Caregivers may cook favorite recipes, keep up on old hobbies, attend community events, or just walk & talk. We treat loved ones like family, and caregivers are at the heart of that treatment.
What Are Some Characteristics of a Good Comfort Keeper?
It’s important for caregivers to be able to weave joyful, life-enriching experiences into everyday moments for clients. In addition to that, a good Comfort Keeper is a good communicator – effective listening, honesty, and a professional outlook are all aspects of an excellent caregiver.
You and your fellow caregivers will not be working 24 hours a day even if your client needs 24-hour elderly homecare assistance, so managing shifts is important. We prefer to work with caregivers that are punctual and can be flexible if necessary.
Because caregiving can be so distinct from one household to the next, creativity and resourcefulness are also important aspects of caregiving. Some of this comes from experience, and we are happy to provide insight. Confidence in your own abilities, tempered with respect, will help you deliver excellent elderly homecare assistance.
Also important are the ability to accept constructive criticism, solve problems as part of a team, and understand and respect procedures and protocol. If you have these characteristics and want a career that compensates you fairly, offers opportunity for growth and provides a daily dose of personal satisfaction, contact your local Comfort Keepers® office today to learn more.
