Benefits & Challenges of Home Caregiving Jobs
Good-paying jobs are available now for caregivers
Caregiving in a client’s home requires some of the same skills as the same work in any setting--like a nursing home--but it is also a bit unique. Most caregivers like working with clients in their homes because:
You like working directly with one person and developing a close relationship with a client.
You like flexibility and the independence that comes with your work.
You are flexible, creative and good at “thinking on your feet.”
You like tasks such as cooking for others, helping elderly people with errands and shopping, dressing and bathing, and talking with and participating in activities with your clients.
You like helping people and seeing them happy.
You enjoy a homey environment.
You like helping older people lead full, productive, safe and happy lives.
However, you may be a better fit for a caregiving job in a nursing home, hospice or assisted living facility setting because:
You like having a routine and want your boss to tell you what to do when.
You prefer working with others each day
You like working with different people and don't enjoy spending time conversing with clients or working together one-on-one.
You prefer having supervision on a daily basis.
You like having standardized supplies and a uniform environment for working.
