Responsibilities

Working directly with our clients in their homes, Care Partners support our clients’ holistic well-being. Care Partners’ responsibilities center on assisting clients with their daily living activities. This includes caring for individuals and families during periods of incapacitation, family disruption, or convalescence, providing companionship, personal care, and help in adjusting to new lifestyles. Rsponsibilities vary but may include:

  • Providing bedside and personal care, such as ambulation and personal hygiene assistance (e.g., dressing, bathing, and grooming)
  • Assisting clients in getting into and out of bed, automobile, or wheelchair, to lavatory, and up and down stairs
  • Performing health care related tasks, such as monitoring vital signs and medications, under the direction of relevant health professionals
  • Providing companionship to seniors and people with chronic health conditions in their homes (e.g., discussing current events, creating artwork, reviewing photo albums)
  • Planning activities outside the home and accompanying clients to keep clients engaged with the world (e.g., trips to museums, concerts, plays, or the park)
  • Escorting clients to doctors’ appointment.
  • Providing counseling and mentorship to family stakeholders and other Care Partners
  • Running errands for clients (e.g., grocery shopping, sundries)
  • Reminding clients to take their medications
  • Doing light exercise with clients (e.g., helping with stretching routine)
  • Assisting clients with their correspondence and bills
  • Assisting clients in preparing meals
  • Performing light housekeeping, such as dusting, tidying, and laundry


Qualifications

Our diverse community of Care Partners includes people ranging from retired social workers and investment bankers, to nursing students, aspiring actors, and certified home health aides. All share our passion for working toward a world in which everyone gets the care they need to live their lives to the fullest.

The program is selective. At minimum, candidates must hold accredited high school diplomas, though we prefer candidates with college degrees or those currently attending colleges or graduate schools. Care Partners also must have high empathy and be patient, flexible, and reliable. Good composure under pressure and strong interpersonal skills are essential, along with the ability to build trust-based relationships with clients and their families. Although desirable, no prior experience caring for seniors or people with disabilities is required; we provide training along with ongoing mentorship and support. However, we prefer candidates who are licensed Home Health Aides or Certified Nursing Assistants.
