If you have a caring, loving spirit and like to take an active role in helping others, you possess two characteristics that are essential to being a Comfort Keeper and joining our senior care team. When providing senior care services, you’ll do more than prepare lunch or dust the furniture or help a client get ready for the day. These are important, of course, but through our unique approach to in-home care – Interactive Caregiving™ –Comfort Keepers find ways to actively engage clients in life. This could include cooking favorite recipes together, reminiscing over old photos, visiting friends or attending community events, continuing favorite hobbies, taking a walk, doing puzzles.
Also important in a Comfort Keeper and our senior care services are the ability to accept constructive criticism, solve problems as part of a team, and understand and respect procedures and protocol. Because being a caregiver is not an easy job. It requires you to perform several acts and responsibilities which is important for your loved one. You must have patience and be willing to put in long hours when caring for an older patient to make them comfortable. You must, however, be able to respond swiftly and effectively to problems when they arise. A great deal of expertise and knowledge is needed for this kind of care. Numerous skills and years of expertise are necessary for this kind of care. So, if you have these characteristics and want a career that compensates you fairly, offers opportunity for growth and provides a daily dose of personal satisfaction, forward your resume today to join our Comfort Keepers Cambridge and Brantford’s senior care team.
