Top 5 Reasons to Become a Caregiver

A caregiver is an individual that dedicates their time and energy to helping others during transitional or tough times in their lives. A caregiver could possibly care for individuals of all ages, but most caregivers are providing care for elderly individuals that may have illnesses, ailments or challenges that prevents them from being fully independent. A caregiver will come into the home of their client and provide several services that includes:

  • Personal Care, such as assistance with bathing, using the restroom, personal hygiene and getting dressed.
  • Light housekeeping services range anywhere from doing laundry and taking out the trash to organizing clutter or maintaining a clean home.
  • Meal preparation, which is very important for the client, as the caregiver will make sure the client is receiving the proper nutrition and meals that he or she needs in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
  • Medication reminders is one of the most important aspects of a caregiving service, as it will ensure that the client is taking the appropriate dosage of medicine at the appropriate time.
  • Companionship is an aspect of caregiving that is often overlooked, but it is perhaps one of the most important service an in-home caregiver can provide. Being there for the individual to support them and to simply spend time with them can boost their self-confidence and their mood, which can improve their overall well-being.

Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Become a Caregiver

Becoming a caregiver is one of the most challenging yet rewarding parts of some people’s lives. As they devote their time to helping others, they are truly making a difference in the world and they impact lives in many ways. Although there are several reasons why becoming a caregiver is beneficial and a wise career choice, we have narrowed it down to five top reasons why you should become a caregiver.

  • Working in a home environment has many benefits, especially if the person thrives outside of a traditional workplace environment. Working in someone else’s home allows the person to continue to work hard and do what they love, but in a more casual setting that can give them the ability to thrive in a setting they truly enjoy.
  • When you become a caregiver, you take on the responsibility of interacting with several people during your tenure at the agency you work for. This is perhaps one of the best reasons to become a caregiver, as you get to meet tons of new people that you can connect with on a different level than regular socializing. For example, when you meet an individual because you are caring for them or their loved one, you are likely to bond much more than if you met them in line at the supermarket or on the street. There is a special bond between a caregiver and their clients, as well as the client’s support system, which would make any social-butterfly happy! Becoming a caregiver gives you an opportunity to meet new people each time you are assigned to a new client. Sometimes you may be with the same client for several months, whereas other times you may help several different people each week. Becoming a caregiver gives you the ability to socialize with others, while still doing your job!
  • Similar to meeting new people, one of the benefits of becoming a caregiver is simply enjoying the company of the client in which you serve. Unlike other jobs where you may never come face to face with your client or consumer, caregiving not only allows you to meet them but also spend time with them. If you are an individual that enjoys spending time with people and enjoys being around others during your workday, caregiving is the right job for you! As aforementioned, being a caregiver gives you the ability to bond on a different level with the client and family in which you serve. After you bond with the client or their loved ones, you have the pleasure of being around them for your whole workday. Being around others in a workplace setting can make outgoing or extroverted individuals very happy! Are you introverted and unsure if caregiving is right for you? Becoming a caregiver can actually help individuals come out of their shell and give them a comfortable and safe environment for them to socialize in!
  • When you become a caregiver, you likely will never have the same type of day twice. This means that you will continuously be learning new things, new techniques and new practices to the caregiving industry. You will continue to develop your skills over time, especially if your home care agency puts an emphasis on caregiver training. This job is perfect for someone who enjoys learning new things while on the job and enjoys a workplace environment that will keep them on their toes!
  • When you become a caregiver, you are likely providing a service that people need and you are truly making a huge impact in people’s lives. Becoming a caregiver is hard work and you have to dedicate your time and energy to ensuring that your client is happy and healthy. However, at the end of the day you are giving the client’s and their families a gift that is irreplaceable and priceless: peace of mind and happiness. Becoming a caregiver is the right occupation for individuals who look to make a difference in the lives of their client’s or consumers. Becoming a caregiver is more than just a job for most people, it is their way of giving back to the world and their way of being a genuine source of help for people that need it the most. Not only will that make a difference in their community, but it will boost the caregiver’s self-esteem knowing that he or she made a difference and that they are doing something that is beneficial for others.

There are several reasons why becoming a caregiver is perhaps one of the best choices that an individual can make for both their personal and their professional goals. Becoming a caregiver will not only enrich the life and livelihood of the individual who has become a caregiver, but it will give them purpose and meaning in their lives as they move forward in their careers.

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.
