Caregivers Guide to a Happy Heart

Caregivers Guide to a Happy Heart

Caregivers are described as caring, selfless and nurturing individuals. We are so grateful that our caregivers dedicate their time and energy to taking care of our wonderful clients. However, we know that caregiving can take a lot of a person, both emotionally and mentally. Having a happy soul and heart can make a caregiver feel fulfilled in all aspects of their life. Read below to see 24 Hour Home Care’s guide to a happy heart.

  • Find time to wind down at the end of the day. This is an important part of finding inner happiness. If you like to meditate at the end of the day, try taking 10 minutes out of your evening to do so. Find the right thing to help you get into a healthy and happy mindset to get a good night’s rest and have a productive next day.
  • Spend time with the people that you love and that love you. You will feed off the energy of those you surround yourself with, so make sure you choose wisely. Choose to surround yourself with positive, upbeat and happy people that will put you in a positive headspace.
  • Learn that it is okay to take a break and say no, for your mental clarity. Do you have friends or family asking to come over after you get off a long shift? Would you rather just stay in bed and catch up on television? It is okay to say no! Pick and choose what things you want to do, and don’t feel bad when you do say no. Remember to let go of things that no longer serve a purpose for you!
  • Know that you are valued and appreciated. As a caregiver, you are selflessly giving your time, energy and resources to someone that needs your assistance. You are kind, patient and loving even on the hardest days. Here at 24 Hour Home Care, we appreciate you so much! You are respected and cherished today and every day!

We know it can be challenging to keep your head up on some of the most hectic days of your life. You may find yourself in a negative headspace or with a heavy heart, as you feel you are doing the best you can. Take a deep breath, dedicate your time to doing something you love and know that we appreciate all our caregivers so much. Thank you for all that you do!

I like working for 24hr home care because they allow me to have a flexible schedule and I can take advantage of how far away from home I'd like to travel for work.

Pros: It’s nice working here. With this agency, you have a very flexible schedule. There are a lot of 4-5 hour shifts, although they do offer overnight shifts as well from 8 hours, maybe 12. You can qualify for employee benefits after 1 year of working here. They have “emergency rate” wages as well, these are last minute shifts that can raise from $1-5 an hour; if they hired you at $14hr and they give you an (e-rate) emergency rate then it’ll probably be from $15, $16, $17+ depending on the case. Traveling is required and they did have a virtual interview with me. They have employees working 24 hours if you decide to call them. They use the CC-Go app to clock in and clock out. They also give you a link to a corporate perks website that will give you discounts on phones, plane tickets, hotels ect. Cons: Communication with the office/managers can be difficult at times because when you call, anyone/random person can answer. My personal recommendation as a company request for employee(s): Sending each caregiver a “care package” in a ziplock bag with gloves, masks, hand sanitizer, ect. in case a facility or client doesn’t have the supplies needed. Having these “care packages” would help the company prevent any further sicknesses when dealing with urination and bowel movements if anything were to happen.
