Recently we recognized Careers in Aging Week (CIAW) with the hope of bringing greater awareness and visibility to the wide-ranging career opportunities in this field. With the recent global pandemic and an aging population in our country, the need for senior caregivers has never been more apparent.
If you’re a caregiver at heart, you can create a rewarding career at FirstLight® Home Care. We’re hiring caregivers! Here’s what you need to know about working for our team.
About FirstLight Home Care
FirstLight provides a range of home care services to adults, including the elderly, disabled, those recovering from injury or surgery, those who are chronically ill, veterans and busy families. Our goal is to always put the needs of those we care for first.
With our services, we’re able to help seniors feel confident, safe and happy, wherever they call home. We also empower them to live their lives with as much independence and freedom as possible, improving their quality of life.
Caring for a loved one who is struggling to live independently is challenging. FirstLight Home Care is committed to helping these families. As part of our caregiving team, you’ll be able to ensure family caregivers get the respite break they need, giving them more peace of mind. It’s why, over time, many of the caregivers we hire form deep and special bonds with the individuals they care for. They become a friend, confidant and even an extended member of the family.
FirstLight Home Care is Hiring Caregivers: Why Work for Us?
If this sounds like the right fit, FirstLight Home Care is looking for people like you to fill a range of roles as a caregiver. We offer several diverse career paths depending on your interests and background.
If you’re not sure if a career in aging is right for you, some questions to ask yourself first include:
- Do you enjoy interacting with older adults?
- Do you believe older people can learn new things?
- Do you wonder why some people seem happier than others in their later years?
- Has there been an older person in your life who has made an impact on you?
Typically, most of the caregivers we hire work in an individual’s home. However, we also provide support and extra help to many clients in other settings, such as nursing homes, assisted living communities and long-term care facilities. Some of the ways we can help in these situations include running errands, providing companionship and conversation, offering transportation to appointments and more.
In whatever role is right for you, FirstLight Home Care offers competitive pay, flexible schedules and career development opportunities, so you can advance your career. We’ve also developed the industry’s best home care training program and ongoing education, so you will be well prepared once you start spending time with clients.
What Our Caregivers Think About FirstLight Home Care
FirstLight Home Care is hiring caregivers, including CNAs, RNs, home health aides, care coordinators, personal care assistants and more. We look for individuals who are compassionate, dedicated and want a valuable and rewarding career enriching the lives of others.
In fact, our caregivers are making the world around them a better place by providing help and support to individuals and families. Here’s what a few of them have to say about working for their local FirstLight team:
“They’re a well-managed company that firmly believes the client is the first priority. A place that makes sure the aides have all the tools and the information to take care of the client.”
“FirstLight is one of the best PCA agencies. They have flexible hours, unlimited overtime, great working conditions. The FirstLight team is very professional.”
“As a stay-at-home mom, I love that they can accommodate my schedules. When I started working here, FirstLight trained me, supported me and have let me know that the staff office is there for me always.”
People who are age 65 and older are the fastest growing segment of the U.S. population. In addition, there are many adults who have physical or mental limitations that hinder their ability to live independently. At FirstLight Home Care, we’re hiring caregivers to help these individuals.
When you join our team, you’ll be enabling our clients to remain at home, in familiar surroundings, following their routine and feeling more comfortable. Even if they’re in a community or other healthcare setting, you can still provide the emotional and social support they need to dramatically improve their well-being. It’s truly a meaningful career path, one where you’ll be making a difference in the lives of others.
