My Favorite Part of the Job
I love so many things about my career as a Home Instead CAREGiver! My favorite thing is opportunities to give back to the Toronto, ON community, such as participating as a team in the annual Be A Santa to A Senior program.
Senior Care CAREGiving Q&A
A: I make scheduled visits to seniors’ homes to provide companionship and help them with everyday tasks. Sometimes that means going to their family home, and other times it means serving them in a care facility.
A: Every day is different, and I love that variety! One day I might be cooking lunch and playing cards with a client, and the next day I may be helping a different client. No matter what tasks I’m performing, I leave each shift with a deep sense of accomplishment.
A: That’s easy! Home Instead doesn’t require previous caregiving experience. Their training program is so thorough that I learned everything I needed to know to provide confident care right away. All I had to bring to my interview was a compassionate heart.
