Are You a Comfort Keeper?
If you have a caring, loving spirit and like to take an active role in helping others, you possess key characteristics that are essential to being a Comfort Keeper.
As a Comfort Keeper you will do more than prepare lunch, dust the furniture, or help a client get ready for the day. These are important, of course, but through our unique approach to in-home care, Interactive Caregiving™, Comfort Keepers find ways to actively engage clients in life. This could include cooking favorite recipes together, reminiscing over old photos, visiting friends or attending community events, continuing favorite hobbies, taking a walk, doing puzzles.
These are some of characteristics of a Comfort Keepers caregiver:
- able to weave joyful, life-enriching experiences into the fabric of everyday moments
- good communicator
Also important are the ability to accept constructive criticism, solve problems as part of a team, and understand and respect procedures and protocol. If you have these characteristics and want a career that compensates you fairly, offers opportunity for growth and provides a daily dose of personal satisfaction, contact your local Comfort Keepers® office today to learn more.
The Process of Becoming a Comfort Keeper
When you apply to join our caregiving team, you will first receive a phone screening. After the screening we may invite you to an in-person interview, where we get to know you better and learn more about your availability. If we decide you are qualified to join our team, we will ask you to complete a background check and begin the training process.
Through the training process you will learn how to interact with a family’s loved ones and how to provide compassionate care. You will also be provided with over 2000 courses you can take to learn more about home care and earn over 70 professional certifications. We want you to become the best caregiver you can be.
