I strongly recommend everyone who wants to give back to the community and those who care for loved ones to become CAREGivers and to join our enthusiastic and caring team at Home Instead as it is a very rewarding and fulfilling job.

Having worked with special needs children, I feel that the elderly are as vulnerable as children. I enjoy being a CAREGiver because I love working with the elderly and because I have an elderly mum and grandma I understand how it feels. I want to give something back to the community. It is very rewarding when you see the smile on the client's face when you visit them and how appreciative they are for the little things you do for them. I have worked with a few clients in the last few months at Home Instead, providing companionship, taking them shopping and just being there for them, having a cup of tea and a chat.

When I am with my client, I feel I am with one of my family members and provide care as if they are one of mine. when I visit one of my clients, I read to him, we talk about our different experiences of travel because when I got to know him, I discovered that we both love travelling. He loves music and book, and he would talk about his visits.  I look forward to each week when I go to visit him. They are an inspiration to me and I sometimes wonder if I will be as active and energetic as them if I get to that age.
