How to Join Our Amazing Assisting Hands Caregiving Team
What We Are Looking For
We always look for caregivers with experience working with seniors, professionally or personally. Many of our caregivers are veteran caregivers who have worked many years privately with a senior in their home or many years with other caregiving agencies. Many of our caregivers are CNA’s and have training and experience in many aspects of senior care, including assisting nurses, with hands-on medical tasks, perhaps working in an Assisted Living or Nursing Home.
However, our services here at Assisting Hands Arlington Heights are completely non-medical, so we don’t require any specific medical training. Our services are also very personal, so we are seeking highly reliable and trustworthy candidates. The main requirements we look for in a caregiver are a caring heart and a calm, easy-going nature. We are looking for someone ready to go with the flow and take on challenges, and always with a real passion for helping seniors.
About Our Caregivers
Some of our caregivers have experience taking care of their parents or grandparents as they were growing old. Some of our caregivers are people coming from other fields, or perhaps even retiring from other fields, and they have an interest in helping seniors have the freedom to stay at home.
All of our caregivers are fingerprinted and background checked. We have an initial training for all of our caregivers before they begin work and we keep up with regular trainings as well as special caregiving events and workshops.
Here at Assisting Hands, we are a matchmaking service! We have many unique and wonderful clients who we strive to make the most harmonious match we can with a unique and wonderful caregiver! (Or two!) Could that caregiver be you?
