The Benefits Of Becoming A Seattle-Based Caregiver
According to the New York Times, “nearly 4.3 million workers voluntarily quit their jobs” this past August. The pandemic offered many workers the time to reflect on what they’re hoping to accomplish and many people in countless professions found that their current career path wasn’t fulfilling or working with their current circumstances.
Maybe you’re considering a big change and enjoy working with people who really need assistance. In that case, becoming a Seattle in-home caregiver could be a really rewarding career pivot. On the other hand, you might already work in the medical field and want a change of pace or have the ability to work outside of a hospital environment. In this case, skilled nursing care or in-home caregiving could be the ideal career opportunity to consider.
“If you’ve never considered working as an in-home care caregiver, but you’re compassionate, reliable and want to help others—maybe you should! As a Fedelta caregiver, you get to make a real, hands-on difference in people’s lives. Here’s a deep dive into the benefits of becoming a Seattle in-home caregiver and why you should consider applying to Fedelta Home Care.” - Krista Hunter, COO
In-Home Seattle Caregiver Benefits
There are countless benefits to becoming a caregiver in Seattle. Did you know that the State of Washington introduced new legislation that allows people to have access to long term care insurance? Clearly, caregiving is a priority not only to Seattle, but Washinton at large.
This legislation ensures a steady line of work for you as a caregiver by incentivizing Washington residents to take out long term care insurance in the event that the need for in-home care should arise. It makes home care a real possibility, unlike in other states that provide considerably less support.
What Are The Differences Between Caregivers And Nurses?
If you don’t have a nursing degree, you may be wondering if you would be able to work as a caregiver. The short answer is, yes! At Fedelta Home Care, we need passionate and reliable caregivers and nurses to help our families. If you’re interested in caring for people, but don’t want to go back to school for four years to get a nursing degree, working as a caregiver is a great option! You’ll still be working one-on-one with our clients, you just won’t be responsible for their more complicated medical needs.
Our caregivers help our families by:
- Providing senior companion care
- Assisting with light housekeeping
- Preparing meals
- Driving to appointments
- Giving medication reminders
- Helping with grooming and hygiene
- Staying overnight with a senior, so he or she feels safe and comfortable
If you’re interested in becoming a nurse, so you can manage more medically demanding tasks, like post-surgical care, catheter care, medication management, and chronic care management, to name a few, Fedelta provides free continuing education classes. We also offer numerous professional development scholarship opportunities to help you reach your goals and further your education.
What Are The Pros Of Working For A Company Like Fedelta?
Aside from our support of continued education, working for a company like Fedelta has a lot of other pros. Fedelta offers our caregivers premium pay, flexible schedules and a comprehensive benefits package. What do these benefits look like?
- Competitive pay range
