Thinking about a career as a Caregiver?

The experience can be very rewarding!

A Caregiver provides non-medical care in a client's home or other facility, assisting him or her so that he or she can maintain independence in a familiar environment. The Caregiver is a trusted and important member of the client’s support group and building a trusting relationship is just as important as any of the direct assistance provided.

The services you provide will vary with each client and your training/experience, but could include…

  • Providing companionship and conversation
  • Light housekeeping
  • Meal preparation
  • Medication reminders
  • Running errands
  • Laundry
  • Light gardening
  • Pet care
  • Transportation to appointments
  • Assistance with oral hygiene
  • Assistance with personal hygiene
  • Assistance with dressing/grooming
  • Assistance with bathing
  • Incontinence care assistance
  • Assisting with transfers/ambulation

At We Are Family Home Care, you can be a successful Caregiver if you possess the following attributes:

  • Enthusiasm working with seniors and impaired adults
  • Honest and trustworthy
  • Positive attitude
  • Compassionate
  • Respectful
  • Dependable
  • Good communication skills
  • Patient
  • Flexible
  • Organized
  • Reliable transportation


  • No degree, certification, or prior experience is necessary to apply for a Companion/Homemaker position with us.
  • Personal Care Assistant 1 & 2 positions require previous experience.
