Personality - This is the single most important ingredient to consider. Caregivers need an innate sense of selflessness and empathy, and sometimes what may seem like a natural personality fit can be deceiving. Most people have a good degree of human compassion but only those with the right set of inner ingredients can voluntarily sustain themselves over time. Don't assume that one personality type is best until you have experience with it. Look for "sweetness," a willingness to serve, an absence of "attitude," and the patience to weather a patient's bad days. Be leery of people who stipulate non-me dical tasks they won't do. With the exception of injections, wound care and dispensing medication out of prescription containers, there should not be much they won't do. It's their attitude toward work that matters most. Reliability - Caregivers work largely unsupervised. Hourly caregivers can run into all manner of obstacles in getting to and from their assignment locations and excuses abound. Prior references will provide clues as to whether or not they can be relied upon. Take this seriously but not too seriously. References can provide a measure of what will happen when you are not around but a lot of people are reluctant to disclose negative characteristics about former caregivers. They are unwilling to expose themselves to possible recrimination and often don't want to harm someone's chance to make a living.

Being a caregiver for 28 years has helped me in so many ways, I have worked in Hospitals, Nursing home Facilities, Private Duty, etc. I love what I do in helping each client I've ever worked with. Taking care of sick people that needs my help gives me joy in my heart and it let me know they need people to work with them that care. ... more
