Careers in the senior living field are interesting and rewarding – especially when you find a career focus that’s a fit for you. Working with seniors provides a sense of personal satisfaction that you just won’t find in any other health care or service sector.
Whether you are in administration, housekeeping, food service or a health care position, spending time in a senior living community gives you the opportunity to make a real difference in someone’s life every day. Residents at senior living communities truly need the services you provide, and they look forward to interactions with caregivers and other staff as a highlight of their day. Everyone from the receptionists in administration, to the servers in the dining rooms, to the housekeeping staff that tidies the rooms and washes the linens has daily interactions with the residents that brighten your day and theirs.
The same is true for home health care where you become a trusted part of a senior’s family. Home health care allows people to bring compassion, understanding and expertise in senior care to the people who need it – right in their homes – by serving as a companion, driver, private duty nurse and other therapeutic and caregiving roles. You are someone seniors turn to for support and feel comfortable having in their home. Sometimes, you are the only person to interact with them during the day, and you can make a significant difference in their lives.
Nothing helps you understand more about what’s important in life than seeing others face struggles you do not. Seniors have travelled much farther along life’s journey and they have a lot to teach about what matters most. Additionally, residents of modern senior living facilities are much healthier than in years past, and they tend to live more vibrant and active lives than ever before. In addition, many seniors choose to age in place at home, and they prefer to have some assistance from a home health care agency. This means you have ample opportunities to develop deeper relationships with the people you serve, and many caregivers and other staff find that they develop special bonds that extend for many years.
