We are currently looking for caring, kind, dependable and personable individuals who desire to provide non-medical, in-home care to the elderly. Tasks typically include:
We offer days, evenings, nights, weekends, and live-in. You tell us the schedule you'd like to work!
Each of our caregivers works with only one client at a time. That way, you can truly get to know your client and build a real relationship.
When you become a Senior Helper, you will have access to the Senior Helpers University where you can take courses to learn how to be a better caregiver and potentially increase your salary based on your certification level.
Our caregivers are thoroughly screened before they can become employees of Senior Helpers and each has the opportunity to participate in the Senior Helpers University program to attain additional education.
Senior Helpers complies with all national and licensing requirements so you can be assured that our caregiver is properly credentialed to perform the level of care that your senior loved one needs.
This ongoing training program enables our caregivers to provide superior home care while enhancing their job performance and ultimately create an exceptional customer experience for our clients.
All of our caregivers have the opportunity to participate in our continual learning program and receive credits towards the Senior Helpers Certification. Those in the program are required to complete a minimum of eight training modules per year on a variety of topics:
We also work closely with dementia expert and Registered Occupational Therapist Teepa Snow (MS, OTR/L, FAOTA). Her Senior Gems classification system (based on Cognitive Disability Theory) allows us to understand which stage of dementia the person is experiencing so we can put together the best plan and select the best caregiver for that individual.
With over 30 years of professional experience and more year providing care for several family members with dementia, Teepa brings a strong clinical base and a unqie perspective on how our brains control our bodies and behaviours. Caregivers who are trained using her approach and skills can help change resistance and refusals into participation and successful interactions.
