Our CAREGiver Sam Rehberger has been with Home Instead since August 2016 and is one of our younger members of the team. This is what he has written about how he feels about his job.
“I always wanted to have a job that would leave me feeling that I had made a difference, I just didn’t know where I could find it!. I had been working in a call centre for a couple of years and I knew I would never get that feeling if I stayed there. A friend of mine suggested working with older people might be just what I was looking for, so I went along to a job fair promoting care opportunities and met with various companies. However, when they explained how they worked with their clients, I knew this was not what I wanted to do. As I was leaving I noticed the Home Instead’s exhibitors stand and met Kelly and her passion shone through, everything she said resonated with me and I knew the care she was describing was warm, person centered and not task focused. The rest, as they say, is history.
My days are varied with all of my clients and working with a great team, knowing they are on hand with their support, trusting us to make decisions based on the training we have been given is really empowering.”
