Boston, Massachusetts, experienced a week of loss and fear and transportation difficulties this past week after the bombing tragedy at the Boston Marathon. Senior caregivers manage emotional and physical losses with senior clients each week and when a tragedy of the scale in Boston is added, caregiving becomes even more challenging.
Our hearts and prayers are with all of those in Boston this week and especially to senior caregivers who must overcome all challenges and still make it to their senior client's home each day.
Caregivers also will be needed for those injured in the Boston bombing and both family and professional caregivers will develop the skills necessary to deliver quality care. Caregiver stress also is a very real experience and everyone must step in to support the caregivers, especially when care needs are not accounted for ahead of time.
Caregiverlist congratulates all of those who have dedicated their life's work to senior care and as the number of seniors in the U.S.A. will continue to grow, we invite more people to consider senior caregiving as a career. Online caregiver trainin.g is available and senior care companies nationwide continue to hire from 3 to 6 new caregiver employees each week and you may apply for senior caregiver job near you on Caregiverlist.com.
Caregivers can join in the U.S.A.'s moment of silence in memory of the Boston Marathon bomb victims and the survivors, today at 2:50 p.m.
