What I loved working at #Caregiving
I love working at caregiving because it makes me happy to hear people say thank you and how blessed they are to have me a part of their lives. It feels good to help others mostly for the seniors that are so lonely and has no relatives or even kids to help and care for them. I was raised by my grandparents and I took care of them until I had to move to further my education.
Caregivers and the Economy
Great article about how caregivers are essential to the economy and how caregiving is a growing field! https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2016/03/unpaid-caregivers/474894/
Caregiving for a family member on a resume??
I have a family member that has been a caregiver for her ill father for almost 5 years, but now she is trying to get back into the workforce because she hired someone else to help out. She would cook, clean, do laundry, help him around the house, and run errands because he has trouble getting around and cannot leave the house. My question is would her caregiving experience count as valid work experience on a resume even though it was for a family member? How similar is caregiving for a family member to working at an assisted living facility or a nursing home? She used to be a teacher so she is looking to be hired at one of the local public schools. Any insight would be really appreciated!
