Senior caregivers are needed, so much so that U.S. News & World Report outlines the need for immigration reform in order to provide enough professional senior caregivers, home health aides and nursing aides for the growing U.S. senior population.
Senior caregiving jobs continue to grow in all cities and towns nationwide as many seniors choose to age-in-place in their own home.
Part-time, full-time and live-in positions are available - - remember, live-in caregivers do not actually move in to live with the senior but instead stay over-night at the senior's homes for 2 to 3 days in a row and then go back to their own home. Live-in caregivers earn a full week's pay in a few days.
Part-time senior caregiver jobs often involve simply assisting a senior with meals and medication reminders and companionship.
Apply for a senior caregiver job in your area as no experience is required for beginning caregiver positions as senior care companies will provide you with training.

Caregivers enjoy the fulfillment they receive by assisting a senior to enjoy a day by knowing they have assistance for the activities they no longer can easily do on their own. Caregiving just may be the most fulfiling job you will ever find, knowing you are appreciated by not only the senior you are helping, but their entire family and their friends. As the need for more caregivers is needed, spread the word to others. You may learn more about employment as a professional senior caregiver on the Caregiverlist Career Center.
