Learn more about becoming a Colorado Springs in home caregiver.
There are many benefits to being a caregiver, and no one knows this better than the caregivers at Comfort Keepers of Colorado Springs, CO. Everyone who has every helped a person in need can remember the elation they felt when that person responded to their service with appreciation and thankfulness. No one is better at providing care than our caregivers, and you would be hard-pressed to find more appreciative recipients than our clients.
The impact of Comfort Keepers on those we assist is often immeasurable. The companionship and care provided often means the difference between an independent life at home and moving to a facility. The bond of companionship and friendship that forms between the senior and care provider through the mutually beneficial relationship benefits both parties.
Getting to know a senior, or anyone in an older generation, can be humbling, edifying, and deeply fulfilling. With the prevalence of the internet and instant searches it is often easy to forget the importance of the memories of people who lived through history. Through our Interactive CaregivingTM model caregivers are encouraged to share stories and activities with the seniors in their care, often leading to a friendship that allows both to learn and grow.
A recent study by Boston University showed that the benefits of being a caregiver extend far beyond compensation and friendship. Caring for others can increase one’s functional memory, raise mobility, and increase a person’s longevity. Providing care increases quality of life and overall health. The tasks that a caregiver performs can even act as a small supplement to existing exercise routines and increase physical fitness.
At the end of the day there is no job more rewarding than providing care to another person. Knowing that you will always go to bed with the assurance that you made a difference in someone’s life is the greatest reward. With all the benefits of caregiving, our amazing clients, and a deep pride for what we do as Comfort Keepers it is no wonder that our exceptional caregivers are our greatest strength as a company.
