I have been working with Home Helpers for over 4 years now, and I really
love working for this company! The kindness and compassion shown by management
to its employees is outstanding. They really helped me gain confidence
to be able to work with people of all ages and care needs. Home Helpers
trained me to work with individuals with a variety of health issues or
disabilities, and taught me how to respectfully care for the elderly.
My personal experience having three different clients with ALS in all
stages of the disease, changed over time and gave me the ability to truly
understand what it is like to live with such a horrible illness. This
experience has changed my overall perspective on life and really taught
me to be patient, respectful, caring, and devoted to my job so that I
am able to provide care in any situation.

Home Helpers was a wonderful stepping stone to start my Healthcare Career.
Originally, I was in need of more patient time in order to graduate. Back
in 2012, I was majoring in pre-medicine and would eventually pursue medical
school. I was looking for something outside of the usual hospital and
doctor’s office volunteer hours. I wanted something more quiet and
personal…something that would bring me a paycheck as well, to help
with school costs. Home Helpers was just that company! I was able to work
and gain that confidence in helping others on a personal level, whether
it was bed bathing, assistance with feedings, medication reminders, or
even taking my client for their weekly food shopping. Home Helpers accommodated
my crazy school schedule and allowed me freedom to work my maximum hours
weekly, all while continuing my education, which was so important to me.
I gained lifelong memories and friendships with clients who will always
have a place in my heart. Some taught me very valuable life lessons and
most were my biggest fans of my educational journey. I remember reading
one of my essays to my clients weekly, and she would give me advice and
critical feedback after her Sunday breakfast and during our strolls through
the hallways of a nursing home! She would often ask if I got my grades
back and wanted to know how well I did. After working with Home Helpers
for 6 years, I had graduated, and was accepted into Perelman Medical School.
I am so happy with where I am now in my life, and look back fondly on
my time spent working for Home Helpers.

I have been working for home Helpers for almost 7 years now. My daughter,
Colene, was working for the company, and suggested I apply. I originally
began as a part-time employee because I was in need of a few extra hours
along with my daily job. Home Helpers was very flexible with my schedule
and found me clients that fit my lifestyle perfectly.
Before working for the company, I had little to no experience working in
healthcare. Home Helpers supervisors offered in-person and computer-based
training, always making sure that I was fully comfortable with my clients
before sending me out alone. At any time, I could call and get answers
to any question I had. If I was in need of guidance, they would respond
swiftly, which gave me the confidence I needed. Sometimes, a nurse from
the agency would arrive at my client’s home for a wellness visit
and also offer me training support, helping me learn how to bed bathe,
reposition, transfer using a Hoyer lift, as well as basic exercises for
my clients, to keep them strong and motivated.
Now, years later, I train other employees because I am in the full-time
role of on-call caregiver. I enjoy meeting new people daily and listening
to all of my client’s stories. They really make my day, and I’m
loving my job!
