Are you thinking about a career in health care?
Would you like to gain valuable experience while completing your education?
If so, professional caregiving might be the job for you.
“Caregiving is the perfect job for busy students – especially those who working toward a career as a nurse, physical therapist or other health care occupations,” said Sierra Goetz, co-founder and operations manager at Trail Ridge Home Care’s partner, the HomeCare Advocacy Network (HCAN). “At HCAN, we understand that it’s not possible for students to maintain a 9-5, Monday through Friday work schedule. We offer flexible hours so we can accommodate students’ hectic schedules, while still providing our clients with exceptional care.”
In addition to the flexibility, Goetz said other factors make professional caregiving a good option, including:
Training and support – Our experienced staff will make sure you’re fully trained before you enter a client’s home, and we’ll provide you with the support you need to overcome any challenge.
Hands-on experience – Because you’ll be working directly with our clients, you’ll get hands-on experience that will help jump-start your health care career.
Variety – Caregiving tasks are as different as the clients themselves. From running errands to helping a client in the shower, the diversity will keep you on your toes and make the job more interesting.
Continuous learning opportunities – Every individual is unique, and their needs are always changing. You will always have an opportunity to learn new skills and techniques to connect with and care for your clients.
Appreciation from others – Helping others probably makes you feel good – but it makes others feel good, too! Our staff, as well as the families you serve, appreciate everything you do!
Lasting relationships – Building positive relationships with clients is one of the most important aspects of caregiving – and it’s the most fun. Our caregivers often form close bonds with seniors and their families – relationships that endure long after the job is done.
