Do You Have What It Takes To Be A Comfort Keeper?
If you have a caring, loving spirit and like to provide home care services, you possess key characteristics that are essential to being a Comfort Keeper
If you’re in search of a meaningful career that will give you the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of senior citizens, you should definitely consider working as a home health aide, or Comfort Keeper. As one of our Comfort Keepers providing home care services to seniors, you will be responsible for providing older adults with the support and companionship they need to live safe, happy, and healthy lives in the comfort of their own home.
One day, you may be helping a senior citizen with personal care tasks such as bathing, grooming, and dressing. Another day, you may drive them to a doctor’s appointment, take them grocery shopping, and assist with various household tasks such as laundry and meal preparation. Since every older adult has unique needs, you can expect to give all of your clients the individualized attention that they deserve.
If you decide that a career as a Comfort Keeper is right for you, you will have to pass an extensive screening process that consists of a criminal background, driving record, and personal reference check. Once you pass the screening process, you will be required to complete a comprehensive training program where you will learn the skills necessary to provide our seniors with top-notch care. Keep in mind that your learning won’t stop after the training program since all of our home care services providers must participate in mandatory continuing education courses.
Unlike companion care providers at other agencies, our Comfort Keepers are treated as employees rather than contractors. This means that you’ll be bonded, insured, and covered by worker’s compensation insurance. In addition, you’ll earn a competitive wage and enjoy a flexible work schedule near your home.
