What do we look for in our caregivers?
We look for what we refer to as the 3 – E’s – Engagement, Experience, and Education. It is our intention to offer the highest standard of quality care and it begins with highly qualified care givers.
Engagement – Our expectation is our preferred candidates are passionate about care giving. You really enjoy working with seniors and their families and you are actively engaged in your role at Happiness at Home Healthcare. It is like a calling for you, not just a job. The hours are flexible and can be part-time or full-time, days or evenings.
Experience – Our expectation is you have a diverse background and have worked in a variety of situations in care giving and possess other skills. A senior’s family relies on your ability to share information, show compassion, patience, and be a good listener.Well developed communication skills is a must.
Education – Our preference is to hire certified care givers who have completed care aid programs or have a degree in nursing. However, if you wish to begin you career as a companion to a senior while you are in training, we offer such opportunities as well.
