Caregiver Stories

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One thing that caregivers may have in common is that they all have similar experiences.  They’ve likely felt the same feelings of joy when they get along well with the person that they are caring for and they likely feel sadness and stress when work becomes overwhelmingly burdensome for one reason or another.

It’s always interesting to hear about the experiences of others – the ups and downs, tears of happiness or tears of anger and sadness.  As caregivers, you can empathize with the stories of other caregivers even though you’ve never met them in your life.  Strength for Caring has a variety of well-written caregiver stories that hopefully can give you a little inspiration for your week.

A-1 Jobs is always hiring experienced and compassionate caregivers, nurse aides, babysitters, companions, and home health aides for our non-medical home care agency.  We look for qualified individuals who have experience with care for children or elderly individuals, as we specialize in Alzheimer’s Care, Parkinson’s Care, Arthritis Care, After Surgery Care, Diabetic Care, Cancer Care, Incontinence Care, Respite Care, and Hospice Care.

If you live in Los Angeles or Orange County and have prior experience and verifiable professional references for caregiving, we may have an Employment Opportunity for you.  Applicants must come into our Santa Fe Springs location to apply and be prepared to pass a National Background Check and DMV Check and Tuberculosis test.  Applicants must have Malpractice/Liability insurance and First Aid/CPR training.  If hired, we can guarantee long-term ongoing employment and the start to a great caregiver career.

Coping with Caregiver Stress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you have provided care for someone for an extended period of time, you’ve most likely felt the stress from working too hard or feeling negative pressures from family members or the person you are caring for.  Although there is an inherent satisfaction to providing quality care to someone, sometimes stress comes from not getting the appreciation and respect that you deserve.

There are many ways to alleviate stress.  An article from the National Care Planning Council provides a variety of stress-reducing strategies for anyone who is feeling down in the gutter.  If you’re feeling the effects of caregiver stress or just want to be prepared for stress in the future, read this article and keep some of the strategies in mind.  Coping methods range from exercising, to getting enough sleep, to massage therapy, and more.

If you’re an experienced and compassionate caregiver looking for work, A-1 Jobs has many employment opportunities for individuals with caregiving experience for Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Arthritis, Post-Surgery, Respite, and Hospice Care.  We can provide you with ongoing long-term employment in Los Angeles and Orange County in cities such as Burbank, Diamond Bar, Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Anaheim Hills, Fullerton, Garden Grove, Corona Del Mar, Seal Beach, Santa Monica, and more.
