Why do you enjoy working with seniors?

"I think my interest in working with seniors dates back to long walks with my wife’s grandfather.  He shared many stories related to his adventures sailing on the old Yankee Clipper ships and shoring up some of the oldest buildings in NYC. “Grandpa” starting out tending the horses for the Hudson Shoring Co. and worked his way up to being president. The majority of my career has been spent working with seniors in one capacity or another. I enjoy listening to, and learning from, seniors as they confront the many challenges involved in the aging process."

Why do you like working with Comfort Keepers?

"Comfort Keepers has impressed me as a caring, person-centered and highly professional organization. This attitude of caring and respect is extended to both clients and their families as well as to staff. As a retiree, I appreciate CK’s flexibility and willingness to accommodate a part-time work schedule. The support and accessibility of the clinical support team and administrative staff have been very much appreciated."

What’s your favorite part of being a Comfort Keeper?

"The meaning and sense of purpose that I derive from being a CK caregiver are my favorite parts of the job. I feel a part of a team that includes the senior and other caregivers, often family members, in helping that individual remain in their own home with as much independence as possible. Also, I’ve enjoyed, and look forward to the return of, in-person training and other staff activities."

What advice would you give someone looking to become a Caregiver with Comfort Keepers?

"I think flexibility and a willingness to listen are important aspects of being a CK caregiver. Companionship, encouragement and emotional support can be as helpful as the hands-on, personal care that we provide. Don’t hesitate to ask for help and guidance from the clinical support team."

Polly

Team Member

Why do you enjoy working with seniors?

"Seniors have years of experience which I find very interesting to learn about as I work with them. If they have lived to experience their senior years, they often have stories to share about how their persistence, faith and or general positive outlook has helped them live to this time of life. I have grown to admire many of my clients. I have a personal opinion which might be of interest to possible caretakers. To me, Seniors and their generation, are often able to laugh at situations and at themselves in a manner not as common with other generations."

Why do you like working with Comfort Keepers?
"Comfort Keepers is a very organized Office. The guidelines are clear and the reminders to complete paper work and training sessions in a timely fashion, are extremely helpful for a Caregiver like myself, as I tend to procrastinate completing detailed paper work. Also, in an emergency situation with a client at home, Comfort Keepers is easily available to guide caregivers."

I appreciate the assignments of clients to my caseload being well matched to my experience and skill level. There always can be difficult situations, but the intake staff seems to have an ability to match caretakers and clients very well."

 "
If you enjoy working closely with clients, have an interest in older people in your life, enjoy working in a home, and perhaps have some experience dealing with creating a stimulating environment for an individual with a need for assistance to remain in their personal home, it is worth a try for you to consider this type of work."
