Hi. My name is Crystal McGuire and I’m a Human Resource Specialist for New Horizons. Today I’m going to talk to you about what it means to be a Caregiver. I was given this wonderful opportunity when I was offered a job with New Horizons as a Caregiver and it really changed my life.
For me, being a Caregiver is really about really loving the work that you do, really taking pride in what you do. It’s about being honest, being reliable and being accountable for what you do. So you can really make a career out of this kind of work.
For me, New Horizons has always been very supportive of everything that I’ve done with the company whether I’m working with clients or whether I’m helping new caregivers, I feel wholly supported by every single staff member with New Horizons.
We have the great opportunity of working with a very diverse population; many many different kinds of people we serve, and that’s always wonderful and exciting that we can do so much to help so many people.
Being a caregiver is really a great opportunity to spread more kindness throughout our communities, which is so important right now. Because we are really able to help people who can’t help themselves. So it’s a big difference from every little thing that we do as Caregivers even if we’re just helping them with little tasks around their homes or housekeeping. As a Caregiver you can take pride in the work you do and you can know that it’s honorable work that you’re doing because it’s making a difference in somebody else’s lives and people let us know we’re appreciated when we’re there helping them, so it means a whole lot being a Caregiver.
I hope that if you’re considering a job in caregiving that you will give it a try because it really can make all the difference in the world for you and for so many other people.
