“Why do you want to be a caregiver?”: an important question to ask yourself if you are considering working in senior home health care and a question we ask of home caregivers we interview at EasyLiving. As our company is united by a common home care mission which is vital to our work, we feel it is important that our caregivers also feel passionate about those goals.
By working as a home caregiver, you are helping us to “ensure that we do not let our clients’ age, disease or disability affect their quality of life”. Does this resonate with you? Do you like knowing your work makes a difference, at a time when someone might be suffering or adapting to a lot of changes?
There are a variety of jobs in which you can make a difference in this way, but many people especially enjoy the setting of helping elders in their homes (and throughout the community). Working as a home health aide, your job tends to be very independent and varied, perhaps as opposed to working in an institutional setting like a nursing home or hospital. Home health care is needed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week so you can choose to work a variety of shifts and hours.
Working as a home caregiver for a Florida home health agency offers you many opportunities, including a range of clients and settings. Home health agencies may provide in-home services, as well as take clients on outings and to appointments, provide extra support in the hospital, assisted living or retirement community and even provide travel support services for seniors.
