Continuous Investment in Your Training & Education
At Ella Home Care, we provide on-the-job training for our employees. We don’t expect you to arrive on your first day having all the answers or knowing what to do in every scenario. Instead, we focus on learning together and growing as a team! We know that people learn best by doing, so we invest in guiding our staff with care.
That said, we do have a few requirements for new hires. The most important tools you need to bring with you to your career as a professional caregiver are kindness, patience, passion for helping others, and a willingness to learn. And beyond the initial job training, there will be many more opportunities for continuing education throughout your career. There are various certifications and courses as well as on-site learning opportunities to ensure your skills are always sharp and up to the highest standards of care.
Fair and Competitive Wages
As a professional caregiver, you can expect to earn a competitive salary right from the start, with the ability to grow. This is an hourly job with benefits, not one where you rely on tips or bonuses to provide a living wage. With the stability of good pay, a career as a professional caregiver is fulfilling both personally and professionally. As you gain more experience, increase your role within a company, and grow your list of clients, you can increase your salary over the years.
Convenient Locations and Reasonable Hours
When you work with Ella Home Care, we see you as a person who has a family and life outside of work. So we do everything we can to make the most of your work hours and maximize the time you have to balance your professional life. This starts with keeping an open line of communication where you can request certain work locations and hours that meet your needs. We do our best to match caregivers with patients who are located within a convenient distance. We also take into account available work hours and match our caregivers with the right jobs that allow for these preferred hours, whenever possible.
A Career with a Greater Purpose!
This should be what really gets you excited! A career as a professional caregiver, especially if you begin at an early age, will give you a lifetime of fulfillment and meaning. Your time will positively impact the lives of those around you – immediately and very clearly. It can be among life’s greatest rewards to see another person’s quality of life increase because of your care and kindness. A career as a professional caregiver allows you to see this first-hand!
