Are you a retired professional looking for a meaningful way to give back to others in your community?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, a career in caregiving might be for you.
“All of us at the HomeCare Advocacy Network know the power of compassionate caregiving,” said Mark Goetz, co-founder and president of HCAN. “Now, more than ever, we need reliable, compassionate men and women who can deliver the services needed to help seniors live their best lives – to help them thrive at home.”
Caregiving can be extremely rewarding for the right type of person. It might be for you, if you’re looking for a job that provides:
The privilege of making a difference – Caregiving is much more than a job – it’s an opportunity to do meaningful work that changes lives, families and communities.
Flexibility – Qualified caregivers can usually work as much or as little as they want – there typically are full- and part-time opportunity to fit any schedule. It’s the perfect career for compassionate people at any stage of life.
Busy, challenging work – No two clients are alike and every day is different. In addition to caregiving duties, you’ll likely be asked to assess the senior’s environment and help maintain a space that’s clean and safe.
Professional development – Ongoing training opportunities will help caregivers hone their skills and empower them so that they’re confident and prepared for any situation.
Lasting relationships – It’s a one-on-one business, so caregivers often form close bonds with seniors and their family – relationships that endure long after the job is done.
As the aging population grows, so will the need for qualified Care Advocates who are want to help seniors age safely in their homes. If you think you have what it takes, visit HCAN Omaha or call our Omaha office at 402-359-1996.
