Your Career as a Caregiver

A Note about COVID-19

Now, more than ever, it’s clear how essential caregivers really are. The people we serve rely on our caregivers, not just for companionship during a time of isolation, but also for assistance with their basic needs. Without dedicated caregivers, many seniors and adults with disabilities would be left with little support. You can make all the difference.

When you become a caregiver, no day will ever be exactly the same as the last. No matter what type of caregiving you provide, you will always have a wide variety of duties and experiences.

And that’s important to us.

Caregivers are the heart of our organization. We know our company couldn’t exist without you, which is why it’s so important to us to keep your passion strong and to ensure your needs are met.

Read more below about the unique positions we offer, along with the training and support we provide to every Right at Home caregiver.

"I work with one of our clients who has severe dementia. She loves to sing songs while we wash her hair, brush her teeth and do her sponge bath. I do repetitive questions every day to try and keep her mind going. We take walks in her apartment halls, while singing and sometimes she even starts dancing with me. She may never remember my name but she always gives me a hug and kiss on the cheek when she sees me. She only knows me as the pretty lady. That is my name to her. She is one of the many reasons I do this job. Her face says it all. I adore her!"

"I honestly have to tell you that working with Right at Home has brought back the joy in my life and has made me feel worth something again. I had lost my identity over the years and the atmosphere within Right at Home has brought me full circle. It's hard to explain but being there for those that need any type of help or care makes things worthwhile and even if it means just a simple smile or a hug is sometimes all it takes to brighten their day. I always strive to be available for clients and promote the excellent standards Right at Home provides."
