Caregiving can be a deeply rewarding career. If you are looking for an in-demand job that doesn’t require extensive education and you want to make a visible difference in people’s lives, you should seriously consider becoming a home care aide (HCA-C)!
If negative behaviors are beginning to disrupt your own or a family member’s daily activities, it’s time to seek behavioral health services. Watch out for these warning signs so you can seek care when you need it.
There’s no shame in needing a caregiver. It’s estimated that 70% of adults who reach age 65 will eventually need long-term services and supports, such as home care or residential care. However, how do you know when ‘eventually’ arrives?
Online caregiver training can be a totally different game from training or taking classes in-person. While doing schoolwork from home with no commute can be very convenient, it also means you’re not surrounded by fellow students and instructors who can answer your questions and keep you on track.
If you love to help people, few careers are as rewarding as the long-term care field. This work gives you the opportunity to make a positive difference in someone’s life every day. With an aging population, there is more of a need than ever for committed workers in this field. But before you can begin work, you will need training.
