Preparing for a Live in Care Job

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Live in care is different in a sense that you will be there in the same facility where your patients reside. It means that it is not just an ordinary nursing job. You are immersing yourself in the kind of lifestyle they have and you become a part of their family.

This concept is great in a sense that you can easily attend to your patients’ needs. They also feel more loved since they know you are around. Their real family might not be there, but at least, they know you are there to provide everything they need.

How to prepare
In order to prepare for this job, you need to make sure that you have the right training and experience. You should also get certified so the family of the patient will feel more confident entrusting to you their loved one. Some facilities provide more training as soon as you get hired.

Training for the medical aspect of the job is easy especially if you already have had similar experience in the past. The more difficult part is how you are to prepare yourself emotionally. In a way, you will also have to cut yourself off from the outside world. You will also likely be staying in an area which is quite remote as most nursing facilities are located out of town. It might be tough at first, but you have to think of the long-term benefits as well.

Think of the people who need you
The best part about live in care jobs is that you know someone needs you. It gives you a sense of satisfaction. You also know that at the very least, you have given someone else a good life before passing. In many ways, it gives you a sense of purpose.

When it comes to the monetary reward, this job is actually more practical. You don’t have to pay for the rent because you are residing in the same facility where your patients are. You also don’t spend a lot of time partying or shopping. Some places also provide free meals. You can save a lot once you are there.

Give it a try
Now that you understand just how satisfying it could be to do this kind of job, why not give it a try? Start by applying for a job and undergoing training. During the process, you will see if this is really the kind of job that is best for you. If it is, you can easily continue after the training. Otherwise, you need to stop before your actual deployment. People who are more passionate deserve this job and patients deserve someone who can give them the kind of attention they need.
