Are You Considering a Career in Caregiving?

Did you know that according to the U.S. Census Bureau, just about 20% of adults in America are over the age of 65? With 10,000 baby boomers every day hitting that milestone, caregivers will continue to be in great demand. Do you enjoy making a difference in the lives of others? Are you looking for a fulfilling career? If so, a career in caregiving may be the perfect fit for you.

To help you decide, we’ve broken down some of the career benefits below.

Job Availability and Stability

One of the biggest advantages of the caregiver’s career is that they are a necessary part of our society and always will be. Unlike some career fields where competition is fierce, the demand for caregivers continues to increase. You won’t be facing an over-saturated job market.

You Can “Get Physical”

If you’re not cut out for a desk job, caregiving will satisfy your need to be up and about. There will be times that you’ll be able to sit back and enjoy conversation with your client, but caregiving involves moving, standing, and walking, as well. You’ll be getting paid well to get some valuable exercise.

You’ll Learn New Skills

To become a caregiver, you don’t need to invest in years of formal education. Still, you will learn new skills from the training you’ll receive from Assisting Hands and from the continuing education courses you’ll take. You’ll do your job well with the training and education you’ll receive along the way.

You’ll Have a Career Path

As you spend more time in the caregiving career, you’ll find many career options available to you. If you’re interested in providing companionship and personal care to older adults instead of medical care, becoming a non-medical caregiver is a great opportunity. Over time, you may become interested in becoming a skilled caregiver, such as a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), which is an equally rewarding career.

You’ll Enjoy Being With Older Adults

When you spend time with seniors, you’ll discover that they have a fun-loving spirit and want to connect with you. They value relationships and appreciate the care they receive. You’ll also enjoy learning about their lives and hearing their stories. They have much to share, and you’ll find the time you spend with them very interesting and satisfying.

You’ll Enjoy No Two Days Being the Same

If you like doing a variety of tasks in a day, you’ll be happy as a caregiver. You’ll get to work with people with different needs and each care would be customized. Many seniors enjoy learning and doing new things, and you’ll experience that right along with them.

You’ll Make a Difference in People’s Lives

One look at the smile of a client will tell you that you matter and that you’re making a difference for them. Your care will allow them to live in dignity at home and enjoy the familiarity they love and need. You’ll be helping them stay healthy by helping them with their meals and med management. You’ll enrich people’s lives, and you’ll experience feelings of fulfillment that no other career can offer.
