How to Become a Caregiver
Caregivers make it possible for retirees, those with a disability, and others recovering from a medical condition to live comfortably at home.
Thinking of Becoming a Caregiver?
The role of caregiver is one of the most gratifying positions anyone could hope to have. Though it's not for everyone, there are those who seem to have been created to be caregivers.
As a caregiver you will not perform professional medical tasks, such as treatment for wounds, pressure sores, or administering IV medication. When such services are required, a home care nurse will be dispatched to assist you.
Caregivers provide a broad range of personal and household services including assisting with bathing and toileting, grooming, exercise, reminders, meals, housekeeping, arranging meetings and doctor appointments, transportation, and even pet care.
If those duties seem familiar, that may be because many caregivers are already accustomed to them as wives and mothers. The most important duty of a caregiver also happens to be that of a wife or mother: listening and providing understanding and comfort during periods of pain, stress, frustration, and self doubt.
If you're the sort of person who relishes bringing comfort and joy into the lives of others, we want to hear from you.
