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.

Types of Caregiving
We’re proud to be able to offer elderly people and adults with disabilities a wide variety of care plans. Though some of our clients will need more advanced care, others are simply looking for help with their everyday routines or assistance in recuperating from a hospital stay. This means that no matter your current training or skill level, chances are we have a position for you.
Our Caregivers Are Our Biggest Asset
Ensuring that our caregivers are properly trained and prepared to work with our clients is one of our top priorities. We want our caregivers to feel empowered and confident in the cares they are providing.
Right at Home holds a license through the NE Department of Health and Human Services. If you or your loved one requires hands-on, personal cares, that level of care will be provided by a CNA- Certified Nursing Assistant.
Our Caregiver Training Process
Right at Home training begins with an in-depth orientation lasting 6 hours here in our home office. Orientation will cover policies and procedures, as well as many other topics: professionalism, communication and documentation, safety, expectations, our promise to new care staff and our promise to clients, HIPPA, Elder Abuse, and basic skills testing in our training facility. We identify caregivers who need extra skills training, such as making an occupied bed, brief changing, transfers, catheter care and more. We schedule time to work together for proper body mechanics and ultimately building confidence in new skills as well as older skills. Note: Some caregivers may not want to do hands on personal care, which is fine. Our office team appropriately matches our caregivers to our clients. We also have tenured caregivers provide hands on training with new caregivers if there is a shared client.
Continuing Educational Opportunities
Following orientation, our caregivers are required to complete 12 CEUs (continuing education units) per year through various trainings offered:
- Right at Home University- this is an online portal we use that has over 400 courses on all diagnoses and diseases, as well as safety and procedures. Our staff are welcome to use an in-office computer to complete these courses!
- In-services- we offer monthly in-services hosted by outside organizations. Some of the organizations who have hosted in-services in the past include the Alzheimer’s Association, the ALS Association, Kindred Hospice, Kindred at Home, and the Omaha Fire Department. We are always looking for organizations to come in and educate our staff!
