Here are a few of the many reasons why we enjoy what we do and can’t wait to get up in the morning.
The privilege of making a difference
A career in home health care allows you to truly make a difference in the lives of clients and their families. As home health care professionals, we get to enjoy the personal relationships we build and the sense of accomplishment that comes with knowing we are enhancing your loved one’s quality of life.
The ease of a flexible schedule
Home health care nurses and aides work as much or as little as they wish, making a career in home health perfect for compassionate people at any stage of life. We can pursue further education, raise a family, or even be semi-retired. Home health care is a rewarding job and allows us to not only be there for your family but our own as well.
The comfort of companionship for those who need it
Numerous studies have shown that socially isolated older adults often feel lonely and depressed. They’re also less physically active and may be subject to high blood pressure. Superior Senior Home Care can provide social interaction and companionship. The specific health benefits of such meaningful relationships can include lower blood pressure, reduced risk for mental health issues, and reduced risk for Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular problems, and other conditions. Both our clients and our caregivers cite the personal rewards of these important relationships.
The opportunity to make life more manageable for clients of all ages
Most of us take our ability to manage activities of daily living for granted. But for those who have disabilities or injuries, and aging adults, daily tasks such as grooming, bathing, toileting, eating, and mobility pose special challenges. As home health care specialists, we get to give our clients more opportunities and freedoms by helping to manage their activities of daily living in the comfort of homes.
The ability to deliver complex care at home
Infants, children, and adults with wounds, injuries, or chronic conditions, and individuals who depend on high-technology medical equipment for nutrition and respiration, all depend on home health care professionals for daily support. We get the privilege of making it possible for our clients to avoid institutionalization in a hospital or facility and relieve the burden of care from their families.
Being able to help clients remain comfortable at home
When competent, reliable family caregiving is unavailable, families must often face the unhappy prospect of institutionalizing loved ones who require support or complex medical care, or who are no longer able to care safely for themselves. Superior Senior Home Care changes lives by helping our clients remain safe and comfortable in their own homes and communities.
On-going personal growth and professional development
A career in home health offers opportunities for professional growth in a rewarding field. Professional caregivers will continue to benefit from a supportive environment that nurtures career development with many options for training and access to leading-edge technologies, as well as supervision and defined paths for advancement. More importantly, we get to learn more about our clients and in turn about ourselves, making personal growth the most rewarding and enlightening aspect of our careers.
A personally rewarding career
The majority of our nurses and aides working at Superior Senior Home Care report a deep sense of fulfillment and job satisfaction. While other jobs may offer some comparable benefits, not many offer home health’s potent combination of flexible schedules, career growth, and—most importantly—the opportunity to do meaningful work that changes lives, families, and communities.
