What You’ll Do and Who You Are:
The good news is that your training will teach you everything you need to know to succeed on the job. But there are a few character traits you should have from the get-go. We have a great work culture at Right at Home and look for people with a similar mindset:
You’re the honest, likable, energetic and approachable type, and are able to get along and verbally communicate easily with people at all levels. You listen well, have great decision making skills and are passionate about your customer focus. You’re never short of a smile and take real pride in your work by being resourceful, accountable, and adaptable and you cope well under pressure, take initiative and thrive on a challenge. Integrity is one of your core values as you do not ethically cut corners. You make a great first impression as you are professional and kind in your demeanor and approach.
You don’t mind getting a little dirty … this could include (but is not limited to) assisting the client with homemaking activities, such as vacuuming, dusting, sweeping or mopping floors, doing dishes, changing bed linens, laundry, and cleaning bathrooms in ways that provide satisfaction and extraordinary results. During each work shift, the Homemaker/Companion must spend less than 20% of his or her time on general household work.
You establish “partner” relationships with the client by providing companionship during activities such as accompanying client on walks, trips to social/recreational activities, assistance with hobbies, etc.
You don’t have to be a gourmet chef but you can prepare a good meal, work your way around a kitchen and run to the grocery store, if needed.
