Are You a Comfort Keepers In Home Personal Support Worker?

An in home Personal Support Worker is the core of our operation & provides compassionate in home care.

Comfort Keepers has been providing top of the line non-medical in home senior care for two decades now. Over that time, we have come to understand that what seniors need most is compassion and support. Above all else, an in home Personal Support Worker who becomes part of our team feel passionate about the work they do and the seniors they care for.

Our in home Personal Support Worker teams do provide seniors in Red Deer, AB with all the day-to-day care of everyday living such as personal care or help with cooking and medication management. However, more importantly, our Personal Support Workers are there to provide seniors with support and help them stay engaged, healthy and independent for as long as possible.

Our unique approach to senior care is called Interactive Caregiving and stands on four major pillars – physical activity, mental engagement, nutrition and home safety. By helping seniors eat healthy, exercise, stay engaged and doing everything we can to keep them safe, we are giving them the best chance we can at making the most of their Golden Years.

However, to be able to do that, we need compassionate Personal Support Workers who share our vision.

A true Comfort Keeper in home Personal Support Worker is creative, resourceful and joyful. They are superb and confident communicators who always keep things professional but are nonetheless flexible. Like all other jobs that involve caregiving, in home caregiving requires patience, self-motivation, punctuality, discretion, honesty, and respect.

We also believe that it is important for an in home Personal Support Worker to be outgoing and positive because many of the seniors we care for are going through a very difficult period in their lives. Some are coming to terms with very harsh diagnoses, others are losing physical or mental ability they once had. In short, everything is changing for the seniors that come to us and helping pick them up and giving them a reason to enjoy life once again is a noble task for sure.

This is why the work we do is not just a job. We are in charge of caring for people and helping them live their best lives. This is no easygoing, casual endeavor. Ours is a challenging work environment, but the rewards are absolutely worth it.

It is fantastic being a caregiver for seniors, each and every day is unique in its own way. No matter what home I arrive to I am welcomed happily, and they are happy to see me as I am happy to see them. I feel great passion and happiness in knowing that I am helping seniors be as independent as possible and they can stay in their homes as long as possible. Helping to make their life a little easier by attending to light house keeping, showering or assisted washing (etc) personal care ( but letting them be as independent as possible, excercising, playing games(crib, pool, solitaire, etc) , making meals, baking, having a cup of tea or coffee and general socialization. ( I'm learning each and every day its awesome) Listening to their stories, sharing laughter, listening to a senior give me instruction on how they do a project and how it works well for them, if I'd like to do it that way. It warms theirs and mine heart when the senior tells me stories of a picture or of an ornament on their shelf, or speaking of perennials and shrubs in their flower bed, or what flowers they are going to plant in a pot this year, the sparkle in their eyes, or the little tad of sadness, seeing how uplifted they are to relate their story to me, its awesomely touching. Caregiving for others is in my heart, Patience and compassion each and every day , helping the seniors to be happy and healthy each day. Treating everyone with all the grace, dignity and compassion is fabulously me. My experience is fantastic.
