Senior caregivers provide emotional support and socialization for seniors, enabling many families to continue to support grandparents and parents with quality care in their home. Adult children often do not live in the same city as their aging parents, which means caregiving often becomes much more than a job for senior caregivers.
Caregivers perform the essential job functions for their senior clients—from seniors who need 24-hour care to those in nursing facilities.
Certified Nursing Aids continue to be in high demand. Long-term care insurance companies often require senior caregivers in the home to be certified as a nursing assistant. Becoming a certified nursing aide, or C.N.A., will guarantee ongoing employment and begin a career in the senior care industry. Apply for part-time, full-time, or live-in caregiving, C.N.A., and C.H.H.A. jobs at Caregiverlist.com. Caregiver Training is also available with a 10-hour online orientation-training course that meets most state requirements.

(TCV Editor’s note: There will be a dramatic shortage of caregivers in the next two decades, as aging baby boomers need care. The Caregiver’s Voice is pleased to help recognize these deserving caregivers after announcing the contest in July.)
