Are you tired of your 9-5 desk job? Done working in hospitality? Looking for a career change? Caregiving is a rewarding career. Being a caregiver allows you to set your schedule, have a stable, well-paying job, and make a difference for others in our community.
Caregivers at Ability360 have the flexibility to pick the days and times that work best for their schedule. This means working as little or as much as you want. Caregivers also have the option to care for multiple consumers, or just a single person. This job flexibility also means you can work multiple jobs. Ability360 also offers flexibility on where caregivers can work. We understand the need to stay close to home or within range of public transportation.
Opportunities to Specialize
Being a caregiver at Ability360 allows you to grow and learn new caregiving skills and techniques. When you start at Ability360, you might not know how to care for consumers with mental health issues, the elderly or those with spinal cord injuries. Ability360 offers training to help caregivers learn more about specific conditions and care techniques.
Homecare is here to stay. As the Baby Boom generation continues to age, they are looking for personal care. They would rather stay in the comfort of their home than go to a senior living community. Caregivers are in high demand.
Jobs in hospitality, like at restaurants, bars and hotels, continue to go up and down. With COVID-19, a lot of those jobs have gone away. Caregiving is steady. There will always be opportunities to pick up more shifts and help more consumers. And at Ability360, we place a premium on the health and safety of our caregivers.
Make a Difference
Serving as a caregiver can be rewarding. Caregivers assist people who then can enjoy a sense of independence. We hear from our best employees that knowing you’ve made a difference in someone else’s life is a true perk of the job.
“I’m the richer person. I got more from the relationship [with my consumers],” Daphene Fitzgerald, an Ability360 caregiver, said. “I know the family appreciated me being there [for their loved one], but I’m richer for it.”
Caregivers bring GREAT value to the people around them. They make a positive difference every day in consumers’ lives. It’s one of the few jobs where you can make a paycheck and a difference. Caregivers are truly frontline heroes.
Most coordinators, managers, and even those in the executive team started as caregivers. At Ability360 we are always looking to hire and grow from within. And our growth means opportunity for those looking to seek more responsibility and of course compensation.
