Frequently Asked Questions
What kind of people become caregivers?
Our caregiver team is incredibly diverse! We have empty nesters, people in their 50s, 60s and 70s not ready to retire, and those who want to work while their children are in school or want a job at night after their spouse/partner arrives home. We even have on staff students studying for their nursing degree. Caregiving is a great job for anyone who values people as well as a flexible schedule.
Can I work for you if I don’t have any experience?
You don’t need any experience, medical or otherwise, to become a caregiver for seniors. We’ll train you – and you earn while you learn!
What type of training do you provide?
If you’ve worked for other agencies or facilities and were overwhelmed due to a lack of training, or you’ve been trying to learn things on your own, you’ll have a completely different experience with us. All Serenity caregivers are offered a buddy for the initial visit and complete training through our on-line training system. You will also receive periodic interactive training at our office in the James Bay neighbourhood. Our live training sessions are taught by skilled professionals. Training covers some of the things you might learn in a nursing training program, as well as specialized training in Alzheimer’s and dementia care.
What is a typical day like for a professional caregiver?
Because you work one-on-one with seniors in their homes, your daily schedule depends on your clients’ needs. Some days you’ll prepare breakfast with a client and then work a puzzle together. Or, you might drive your client to a doctor’s appointment or tackle light housekeeping. Other tasks include helping seniors with dressing, bathing, grooming or with devices such as hearing aids and assisting into or out of a wheelchair and bed or with toileting.
What you won’t have is “assembly-line” duties sometimes associated with nursing care facilities (for example, toileting resident after resident). Your responsibility is to provide care and companionship to your senior client or clients. Many of our caregivers tell us about the wonderful connections they’ve formed with their clients – and how much meaning these connections add to their work.
Will you be able to accommodate my odd schedule?
Yes! We have many caregivers who work evenings, on weekends, and during the day. Our scheduler will work with you to help ensure you get the hours and flexibility you need. Our caregivers typically work between 10 and 30 hours per week. We’re looking for caregivers who want to work at least 5 hours per week.
Will I need to give my senior clients medication?
No. We do not administer or prescribe medication. As a caregiver, your job requires you to remind seniors to take their medication at the correct time and then assist them in doing so (e.g. remove the medicine from the container and then give it to the senior on a small tray or in a cup). You will also observe and document the client taking the medicines, and the dosages and types taken.
Will I need to perform any type of medical procedure?
No! As non-medical caregivers, we don’t provide any medical assistance or perform procedures. We do help seniors with mobility – e.g. helping them in and out of the shower, car, etc.
What makes you different?
We’re committed to you and to our senior clients, which is why we use Surge Training, and why we continually invest in our care management system. Everyone on our leadership team was once a caregiver, so we know what it’s like working with older adults. We’re an independent, family-owned company committed to supporting our local community. Most important, we want to see you succeed, which is why we provide:
What do your caregivers say about working with you?
“I worked as a home care worker for 10 years. For the past 7 of those 10 years I worked for Serenity Home Care. It was refreshing to work for a company that put their clients needs first, not just the income/profit. It was great to hear feed back from the clients and their families that they felt heard about their family member’s needs and how we’d go the extra mile for them by providing consistency and continuity of care. Clients are people first, not just tasks, and training was always available. Whether a client or an employee we/I were always treated with respect. It is for these reasons that I will always refer both potential clients and employees to Serenity Home Care. Thank you once again to Murray and Kathy Tough and the office staff for creating and maintaining a healthy supportive work environment.”
